How We Met?

Our old Beagle/Chow mix, Maggie, had died the fall before, and we really wanted a puppy. We looked in Uncle Henry's, and saw that someone was selling 4 border collie puppies, and we already wanted a border collie, so we decided to call. The woman had 2 females and 2 males, and Ruby was the only one who wasn't already being looked at. So, we went to the womans house. Ruby was the little dopey one (she still is really goofy ♥) and the two males were already taken, and the other female was being looked at, and the woman said that the other female was a bit of a brat. The woman told us that Ruby loved water, and that she would always play with the water in the bowl. We decided on Ruby, and she had a little bit of red on her, so we thought that she would be a tri-color, but now she just has red highlights in the summer.We brought Ruby home, and what do you know, she pawed at the water in the bowl, making a mess. But it was so cute we let her do it. Ruby has been a wonderful dog, so beautiful and smart. LOL, for a while, the only command Ruby knew was "sit". So when we let her loose, and she started to run around out of control, and we couldn't catch her, we'd yell, "Ruby, SIT!" and she would sit on her bum and let us get her.I love Ruby, and she sure does live up to the border collie breed - except that the first year we got her, she liked to dig (and the books we checked out from the library said that border collies never dig) and she barks a lot, or huffs her breath (a lot of books say that border collies never bark).So that's the end of Ruby's story :)

Hi Ruby,

Yes, it has been awhile since we've barked! Life is so hectic. I'm not quite home yet from vacation. I'm currently in Illinois working my way back home. Storms are in the forecast here and it is storming back home, so I hope everyone is fine and I have safe travels. We are attending a confirmation today with outside activities planned for hope the weather is nice for that. Well I better go and eat breakfast and mom says she has to get moving too, so have a great day! Leaving you a vote. Shepherd hugs, Contessa

Come visit me, CONTESSA-It's hard to say goodbye to all my friends-So until we meet again---

Ruby Rose.....

Annie is a cute name for the calf. Moma will have to post a photo of her on your page. Why burn her horns off? Don't know much abt calves so we are wondering. Moma had quite a day yesterday. First her usual housework, then a load of laundry, then planted stuff in the planters that flank each side of the front door, then she laid mulch around the shrubs. Now her intention was then to just clean out her car but Daddy wanted also to wash & wax it. Ok she said....her back killing her. Now it gets good....she has black carpet mats & a white dog. The mats were covered with my gorgeous blonde fur. First she shop vac'd it, then she used a sticky roller & finally had to pick by hand the ones that wouldn't come off. Ok, done, she puts them on the front porch & turns to vac out the car. When she was finished she turns around to turn off the shop vac & there I was on the front porch laying on one of the black mats. God help me she mentally screamed....Daddy rolls his eyes. Moma shooed me off & took another 20 mins to clean the one mat......oopsy!!! hahahahaha hugs LilyPup Feliz Quatro de Mayo!!

Hi Beautiful Ruby Rose

I just love when you stop by for a visit (& love the "Annie" update.) I'm gonna help Mom get the rest of the garden planted this weekend. She added some more space to it this year. I'm excited cuz I think that means cucumbers...heh heh...I love chewing on cucumbers! Have you ever tried one? I mean it's not ad good as a pig's ear but......BOL! I think I'll swing on over to Missy Mae's . . .bye, Benny

Hi Ruby Rose

Happy Thursday. Hope your week has been a good one so far. We are under severe thunderstorm watch & tornado watch until midnight Friday night. Hope they stay away from us. It’s hot here today (88) which is what could make the storms turn bad fast. They are not here yet though. Mom has been taking Abbie for her walks every night. At first it was a struggle to get her into the car. She would fight & fight & then mom would almost have to lift her into the car. Tonight she went out & jumped up right into the car. So that must mean that Abbie knows she has to get in the car for her walk. And she must like the walks enough that she is willing to brave the car. It does seem that mom is making progress with her & she seems happier. As for me, I am still doing well & getting my walks also. Mom hides toys on top of the refrigerator to keep me from eating them. This morning when I came in from going potty, I was looking up at the top of the fridge so mom got me a toy down. She also got one down to give to Abbie. Well I grabbed both of them & took them to the couch. That’s when I found that I had a delima. I could either hold both of them in mouth or relinquish one so that I could actually chew on the other one. Being the super sweet dog that I am, I decided to be gracious and share one with Abbie.
