Ruth MullerInducted into the Hall of Fame in 1999
For contribution to the breed

Ruth and "Milru" were mainstays on the cocker scene for a long, long time. Her first litter was whelped in 1939 and was sired by Mrs.Towsend Scudder's, Brynwood, Danny Boy. Judge Scudder was very revered in ASC and in the history of cockers and obviously passed his enthusiasm on to Ruth Muller.

In the '50s Ruth and Milt Muller began in cockers seriously. Obedience and field work played a big part in the couple's early activities and success. Milru's Licorice Honey UDT won, among other honors, the Noerr Trophy. (Mr. Noerr was a very respected Obedience judge and breeder of Bloodhounds and Cocker Spaniels whose prefix was Kennels of the Ring.)

Ruth bred many champions and enjoyed innumerable important wins showing her dogs herself as well as having them shown by professional handlers. The numbers of fanciers that she mentored were many including some of the top breeders of today.

Ruth maintained a deep interest in cockers being used in the field, obedience and in conformation all through her life. She was never too busy to help any fledgling fancier. Her long time commitment coupled with her successes makes her a splendid example of what an ASC Hall of Fame inductee should be.
