Coleridge’s Blue Indigo Rapsody

Indy is a tall (over 38″ at withers) good looking male with a short, hard back, a ground covering side gait and a lovely headpiece. Although he was not shown due to an injury to his foot as a young puppy, this boy deserves attention and demands it when you are in his presence. He has attitude to spare. Indy lives with Pat where he is Lord of the Manor. Producing lovely puppies that have literally gone all over the world.

Indy is C.E.R.F.’d, OFA good hips & elbows, Ultrasound clear heart, Thyroid normal, VWB neg. Indy is available at stud to approved bitches. Frozen and Fresh-chilled seman also available.

CH. Coleridge’s Bandito de MacLeo

“Bandit” (or “Bubba” at home) was a lovely, elegant male. Short-backed. Bandit is sound coming and going, with a floating, ground covering side picture with a hard, level topline. Sound physically with equally sound temperament and a loving disposition. He shared Sandy and Joe Leonard’s home with their daughter, Amy, and his mother, Ch Coleridge’s Sophia De MacLeo (Sophie)and a siamese cat. Bandit has produced lovely champion puppies.


Blue Knight of Coleridge

Alison’s father – Blue, was a nice boy with gentle, easy-going temperament that was great with my kids. While I lost him much too early, he definitely made his mark by providing Coleridge with Alison.


CH. Haltmeier Uno’s American Made

“Cagney” came west and to Coleridge as part of a syndicate deal between Coleridge-Me, Sir Blu – Judi Murdock and Dimor – Diane and Mory Sorrels (with whom Cagney lived). He brought to the line many good qualities which combined well with Coleridge.


He was in a class by himself – an aristocrat that had dignity and knew his worth and made sure you knew it too! He has passed on many interesting traits to his offspring that still continue to appear (just ask Me). He lived to a ripe old age (almost 11) and due to foresight was collected for frozen storage when he was young.

There is a limited number of breedings still available for exceptional breeding – If interested, please Contact us at Coleridge for the requirements.

Coleridge’s Blue Titan

A Cagney/Bonnie son. Titan was lost much too young to an allergic reaction to medication. Fortunately, he had sired one litter before his death – Indy is his grandson and like him in many ways.
Titan adored children and was fond of Dianne’s poodles as can be seen below. A shot of his head is still in use on much of the company, Furry Friend Fashions’ advertising.
