Born: 9 May 2013

Tullaview were incredibly excited to welcome Ruby to our family in September 2013. She has come to us from close friends Lynn & Bill Harrison and their world-renowned Tullacrest Border Collie kennel, and we are eternally grateful to them for entrusting her to our care. Our precious Ruby's career has been outstanding, with Best In Show All Breeds, Multiple Best In Specialty Shows and Multiple Best In Group awards to her credit. But the greatest thrill she has given us is the realisation of a dream: BEST IN SHOW at the 4th Australian Border Collie National in 2016! Not only an accomplished showgirl, Ruby has also taken time out to bless us with two beautiful litters, and has passed on many of the attributes that make her a top Border Collie to her children, including her fun-loving and endearing character. She is the mother of two Australian Champions so far, with more on the way!

Ruby begins her show career with Baby Puppy of Breed at Adelaide Royal 2013. She has since gone from strength to strength, particularly in the Specialty ring and under Border Collie breeder-judges. Some highlights include:

  • BEST IN NATIONAL SPECIALTY SHOW, Bitch Challenge & Best Australian Bred In Show (4th Australian Border Collie National, Queensland 2016) - Ruby had just turned three at the time of this exciting win under Judith Gregory (Tonkory BCs)

  • Best In Show (All Breeds) awarded before turning two years

  • Best In Specialty Show (NSW Southern Dist BC Club September 2015 - Saturday)

  • Best In Specialty Show (NSW Southern Dist BC Club September 2016 - Saturday) under breed specialist Nadia Attridge (Classicyds BCs)

  • Runner Up Best In Specialty Show (NSW Southern Dist BC Club September 2016 - Sunday)

  • Best In Specialty Show (BCCNSW April 2017) under breed specialist Janice Baldwin (Yarrancoly BCs)

  • Best In Show (ACT & Dist Combined Collie & Shetland Sheepdog Club Semi-Specialty June 2017) under breed specialist Joanne McCann (Jopearl BCs)

  • Best In Specialty Show (NSW Southern Dist BC Club September 2018 - Sunday)

  • Reserve Bitch Challenge & Open In Show (NSW Southern Dist BC Club September 2019 - Saturday)
  • Multiple Best In Group & Multiple Runner Up Best In Group (All Breeds) winner, including being awarded by breed specialist judges John Sullivan (Kennoway BCs) and Lorraine Warren-Powell (Tuckonie BCs)

  • Best Headed Bitch, 1st Place Puppy Bitch & Opposite Puppy In Show (3rd Australian Border Collie National, Victoria 2014) under John Ritchie (Dykebar BCs)

  • 2nd Best Gaited Bitch, 3rd Best Headed Bitch & 3rd Dam & Progeny class (5th Australian Border Collie National, NSW 2019) under Property judge Emily Barnhart (Pawcific BCs). We were thrilled that all five of Ruby's children placed in their respective breed classes at the 5th National, including TWO class winners!

We were suitably excited when Ruby attained her final qualification to become an Australian Supreme Champion in September 2018 with her sixth Specialty Best In Show win! And all of this has been achieved despite being a girl who is not always in her best 'party clothes' and after having two extended breaks whilst being on 'maternity leave.'  To us, she is truly one-in-a-million and we are considerably blessed to have her in our lives. With nothing more to prove, she will make select appearances in the ring from 2020.

Critique from the April 2014 BCCNSW judge, Mr J Black (Vic), reads: "Beautiful bitch, pretty much everything that you look for in a Border Collie bitch, feminine, beautiful proportions, sweet head and expression, balanced front and rear angulation, great tail set.Ruby won Puppy In Show!

Critique from the 3rd National 2014 judge, Mr John Ritchie (Dykebar BCs), reads: "What a classy youngster this is, so full of breed type, lovely feminine head, balanced, could have a touch more stop, dark well shaped eye, flat skull, lovely ear set and carriage, moderate neck, good withers, correct front angles, good balanced body, solid topline, nice croup, good tail set and carriage, lovely well angulated hind quarters and neat hocks, she moved soundly out and back and showed real reach and drive on the side gait, not in her best bib and tucker but had nothing to hide, so well presented and sympathetically handled to get the very best from her, I predict when back into coat will have a very bright future, a top quality lady only held back with her lack of maturity."

Critique from April 2017 BCCNSW judge, Mrs Janice Baldwin (Yarrancoly BCs), reads: "Beautifully balanced bitch of excellent breed type. Good proportions and substance, presenting a smooth outline. Feminine head with good expression, dark eye, intelligent, alert expression. Large ears which did detract slightly from the overall balance of the head. Good reach of neck onto well laid shoulders, forechest moderately broad and well sprung ribs. Well boned forelegs with sound, strong feet. Firm topline sloping gracefully to set on of tail. Broad hindquarters, well let down into hock, strong rear pasterns. This lovely sound bitch did not disappoint on the move, she used all that she had and then some, moving smoothly with purpose, stealth and economy. Great reach and drive with a minimum lift of feet, head and tail carriage correct and level topline. True out and back.  Superbly handled and presented." Ruby was awarded Best In Show!
