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 Big Ruby

This is the first time R&C are letting ME bark a blog so I just had to come over here to bark at you! I was told that I'm a Red Toy Poodle but my coat has turned lighter as I got older. And I get lighter when I'm groomed and the top fur comes off. Momma is trying to find out if she can get my papers so she knows when my birthday is. My family said it's either in March or April. I miss my daddy but Riley & Chipper sure know how to PLAY!!! I brought them all my toys and they FILLED a hefty bag. You should the toys we have now. They share theirs with me and I share mine with them. I hope you're having a great weekend Ruby. I know I sure am. Happy Memorial Day! Woofs Ruby Doobie Doooooooo

Hi ya Ruby

Yep we got a Ruby TOO! She's just as precious as can be! You guys have lots of the same nicknames. Ruby's owner passed away and she had no where to go. Mom has always loved Ruby and she liked coming here, even if it was to be groomed. Love your photos pretty girl. Have a great Memorial Day Weekend. Woofs R&C&R

I love your pictures Ruberz! It healed by itself, and the skin thing we were talking about ended up being like a really really tough tiny ball of fur! Bol, so she is fine! We have been making smoothies too! Mom still has to get braces. Bleh. She isn't looking forward to it but she knows she needs 'em! She has to have a few teeth pulled and surgery first though. So we need money for all of that. Idk if I will enter the avatar contest. Maybe. Love your avatar though. Well, I am becoming a trouble maker again! The past few days moms come home to find food that was on the COUNTER. Eaten and gone on the floor. She also caught me counter surfing right in front of her! So I've been in the doghouse. Not literally...I am actually afraid of doghouses. Mom doesn't know why but I will REFUSE to go in one. Other than that its been an extremely stresful bad week for mom so I am just trying to sit by and keep her and myself calm. She is completley healthy now though. She coughs like once a day. Nothing to keep her inside or anything. Mom was supposed to go to her grandmas to go see the pups and what not but she doesn't have a way to get there so she will wait until summer. She is pretty excited to see the puppies and she is gonna see if she can find a job down there while she is helping her grandma out, but she has NO idea what she is going to do with me because her mom won't watch me and there is no one else up here that can, So she is hoping her grandma can find a friend down in bothell or something where I can stay! Keeping our fingers and paws crossed! Well, Have a nice night! Licks, Love, & Prayers ♥ Zoey

Ruberz

I can NOT believe I missed you winning DOTD again. Oh my goodness. I'm sorry Ruberz. A belated congrats though. So sorry for being gone for so long, again. Mom was pretty sick for the past four weeks, and one of our cats, CoCoa, got in a fight. and she never gets in fights so that was weird, but she had a pretty bad cut on her ear. Its almost completley healed now, thank goodness. Plus the normal business of life, just haven't had time for the computer lately. And the kind of internet we have, through moms phone, has been really slow and not really working well lately. But we have also been enjoying the sunshine. Yes, sun! Two weeks of mostly 70 degree weather. That felt like summer to us. Really warm compared to normal. So everyone was out in there shorts and what not. Mom is just thinking about later on in Aug./Sept. when its gonna be like 85-90 degrees. That's real summer! But now we are getting back into the normal routine of 50/60's rainy cloudy weather. Dang. Mom has been baking too. She says she likes it better than cooking. (Like dinners and stuff) She made some little french donut things that were really good. I got some that didn't have powdered sugar on them. They were pretty tasty little treats. And of course cookies and what not. She says what else are you supposed to do when your sick? She only stayed home for 2 or 3 days out of the 4 weeks she was sick but those days were plenty. Bol. She also made puppy chow. For those of you who got all excited like me, don't be. What an evil trick! This so called "Puppy chow" is chex cereal, covered in melted peanut butter/chocolate and some powdered sugar. Sounds yummy right? So here I am, sitting on the floor last night waiting for some and then the humans start eating it. Hello? "Puppy chow" sounds like its for dogs to me! But apparently its not, so my hopes and dreams were shot down and I was a sad dog the rest of the night. Ok not really...maybe I am being a little over dramatic but I think if humans are going to eat it, they shouldn't name it stuff like "PUPPY.." it should be called "Human chow." Enough said. Hehe. Well, we hope to blog again soon, and we always do hope to but sorry if we can't! Have a nice sunday! Licks, Love, & Prayers ♥ Zoey

5307 for Ruby from the CapeCodCrew

Remember us? Its Jazz & Felix, Freedom & The Betta Gang. Its been quite a while since the last time we were on here. Maybe back in December was the last time we blogged. Its almost the end of school for mom, so she thought she'd get back on here for us. We sure missed it. We have been updated though with all the emails being sent to mommas phone. But nothing is like the blogging:) We've been awfully busy bees.. sorta. hehe. Many events had happened while we were away. Im not sure if we had mentioned it but in November a friend of moms had died. She was a neighbor of hers. We miss her dearly. The winter was very bitter, but we barley got snow! Jazz didnt like the snow. Felix thought it was the greatest thing in the world. It took us hours to coax him back inside! He enjoyed catching the snow in his mouth too! Moms cousin came home from Korea for Christmas. His flight was delayed, but he got here on Christmas Day:) We recently got news that he is gonna be a father soon which is very exciting for us. Tobeys 2nd Rainbow Bridge Day was the 22nd of December. Thank you for all of those sweet messages we got, we appreciate you guys remembered <3 Moms birthday was back in February, again, thank you all for stopping by & saying happy birthday! It means a lot to mom. She was in Fort Lauderdale, FL for her birthday, so we didnt see her! :( Jazz & Felix have all new(ish) pictures up! They're new to you guys, since they were tooken when we while we were away. Mom says we will all get new & better pictures coming soon. Also, Felix has a video of him getting the paper that should be up in the video section soon:) His 3rd birthday/1st Gotcha Day is June 27th, we cant believe its almost been a year with him already! Hes changed so much since we had adopted him. Hes such a handsome fella <3 Freedom seems to have started a bond with mom (finally). His birthday was in April, the 19th. He turned 4 years old (it was also his 1st Gotcha Day too!). Freedom is back sleeping in his outside hutch since the weather has been nice & warm. Mom still has his indoor cage up, just incase it rains or is to chilly for him! Freedom is like moms little puppy. He will jump up next to her on the couch (if Jazz & Felix dont nip at him first) & he will even follow her around. He is still skittish whens held, but hes getting better. As for the Bettas, mom still needs to update their page on FC. Tomorrow mom plans to clean the bowls, so she will take all pictures of them when the water is clean. Our beautiful green betta, Huxley died on March 30th. He jumped out of his bowl which shocked mom, since his bowl was the only one with a cover. She left a little space open so she could drop his food down in the water. He was one smart fish to figure that out. We miss him dearly. As for mom, shes been okay. She is dealing with her brain disorder. Shes cooping as best she can. Good news is she got into a techanical school. She went today for testing. Out of 300 applicants

Hi! Ruby Tuesday Rose

Hi! That is so cute that you hide behind things when you are fetching. I just give it the stare. If Gpa or a neighbor doesn't throw it, what do you do? I just run up sometimes and either stomp on it or put use one foot to smack it and then back up to give room. Usually gets there attention.... I love your new pictures. So cute!! There you go hiding again Hehe! No socialization went on here. Em and Navi usually just fly my way and I would just sit there and stare at them and then glance at mom. I am very calm around Emilian, that is sometimes what worries mom. She never knows when I could break. Navi bites me very hard on the nose sometimes, so I stay away from that little green puffball. Emilian is sweet and gentle on so many levels with me, he gently nibbles at my nose. Have you and Spirit met before? My mom is still very cautious when I am around them, cause you never know. :) Here is a vote for my special friend. How have you been? How has your weather been? Hope well. All is well over here in OR. It has been, over the past few weeks, in the upper 70s and sunny. Mom has been really busy lately, and hasn't gotten to take pictures in a while. Since April 29th...ya. We posted those photos up just for you to see, and if you are wondering, I am watching a soccer game with mom and auntie :) "A friend is someone who reaches for your hand, but touches your heart." Wishing you the happy days this week, see you tomorrow!! SB ♥ PS) Mom wanted to ask me to ask you to say some prayers for mom's Gma & Gpa. They are really stressed out due to some seen health problems with mom's grandmother. She went into surgery this morning and had a nice recovery. Please pray that they will not be stressed out and that God will show them comfort. We appreciate you and your prayers so much.

Hi Ruby

Hi Ruby, Hope you had a great mother's day with you rmomma. I did with my momma. We had a special day at the park and I met a couple of my boxer friends Tank and Jynx and played. Did you do anything special? Just being with your momma is probably special...at least I know that is how I feel about my mom. Well just wanted to stop in and said Woof!!!!

Come visit me, Dakota " Offline grieving for Grandma"
