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 Tuesday Rose ♥

Hi! Here is a quick vote, thanks for stopping by :) That is a lot of chicks. I hope all goes well with the chickens, and the one with the possibly deformed leg. Glad you like helping your mom out, and glad you will be on more often! Do you get to be close to the chickens/chicks? What about your calfs? Today I got to play outside. I got an upset stomach so mom is watching me, had to go out 6 times today :( Oh well, I had a fun day with mom though. Today was raining, until this evening where it is still a bit dark, but a bit of sun came out :) It should stay like this for another week, and hopefully change into some 80s and sunny weather :) How is your weather? Hope its in your liking!! Can I ask a favor? My horse brother Quincy is setting a goal to reach 9000 votes. Not by a certain date, he would just like to reach it. Would you be able to jump over to HC and just drop off a vote, even if they are silent. If you can, no pressure. It would mean so much! Please visit, Quincy #157076 on Horsechannel Please vote Skye(#216484) on June 1st for a DOTD winning date on June 2nd. A beautiful Assie with two sky blue eyes. A dear friend to me! All votes greatly appreciated!! SB

Hi Ruby!

Great to hear from you! We understand being busy, though, sometimes there just isn't time to blog everyone. Sounds like you guys have your hands full with all those other animals! That's nice your cows went to a farm nearby, if you couldn't keep them. Hey, what do you guys think of the new changes coming on Monday? Have a nice night :) *hugs* Muffin, Brandon and Peanut

Hi Ruby Rose....

Hope you and you family had a nice Memorial Day Weekend and nice weather. We had hot weather and t-storms for the weekend, but today was beautiful, and in the 70's. Love your new profile picture and all the pictures in your album. You are just beautiful, and I can see you love to pose for the camera like I do. Hope you are having a great Thursday, and wishing you a great weekend. Leaving you a vote, and Shiloh Snuggles...Takoda

Hi Ruby

Happy Thursday. Hope all is well at your house. Abbie has not been feeling well. She was throwing up, wouldn’t eat & had diarrhea. Mom gave her some Pepto and started her on hamburger & rice. She seems to be feeling better now. Her tummy has been acting up off & on over the past few months. It may be her anal glands causing the problems. She has been to the vet just about once a month a lately to get her glands emptied. But mom is thinking that it might also be the result of the Science Diet food that she has been eating. Mom has been feeding Money, Abbie & Pooh the Science Diet food that I won since Halloween in October. So Abbie will now be eating the same food that I eat. Since my food is made for dogs with allergies & sensitive stomachs, mom is hoping that Abbie will no longer have the tummy issues. My liquid anti-seizure meds arrived today. So in the morning I will begin the tapering off process. I haven’t ever had any liquid medication so hopefully I will take it without any problems. Since I have been taking pills 3 times a day for the past 3 months, I automatically open my mouth for mom so that all she has to do is pop the pill in. Somehow I think getting the liquid down mw may be a lot more difficult. Oh well, I guess if I won’t take the liquid then mom can always soak the liquid up with a paper towel & feed me the paper towel. We all know that I wouldn’t have any problems eating the paper towel.

Hey Ruby

Toby and I have been doing well. Mom's brother and his family cam eout on the 25th and his oldest daughter, who is 2, just loved playing fetch with Toby and me. She also loved seeing moms goat and the kitties. They live in town so they liked being in the country. Mom got me a new dress but the camera broke so she cant get any pictures. I hope she can get a new camera soon. I hope you are having an amzing week! Cockapoo Kisses and Schnauzer Hugs Luly & Tobbers

Hi Ruby,

Hope you are doing good. My mom was mad at me yesterday when she took me to the park to play with my friends Tank & Jynx...I spotted a squirrel and took off needless to say my mom was not happy with me. I love all your pics they are so cute. Well just wanted to stop by and say hello my furfriend....sorry I ate that tasty bone at the top of your page.

Hi Ruby

No problem, we know how life is; in fact I don't know how much I'll be on in June. Dad has to go to Paris for work, so Mom is tagging along; they will be gone June 6-21. They are taking from the 16-21 for the vacation part. I've been really good, got lots of walks this last weekend; despite the rain. Thank you for the compliment, Mom says she agrees with you. bol Oh, Mom has a LOT of pictures of me; it's getting them on here that's not her strong suit. ;) She said she'll try to do better. You are a beautiful dog, Mom wants to know if your as soft as you look like you would be? Enjoy the rest of your week. Take care, Pepsi

Come visit me, Pepsi- DC is just not fun anymore since they changed it. We will only be getting on here once and awhile. We WILL miss the friends we have made on here!! All of you take care!!
