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 :)

Ruby, How are ya today!

Boy! What a Day! What am I saying, What a WEEK! and it's only Wednesday! We have COMPLETELY scrubbed and scoured the Master Bath! We scrubbed out the cat boxes to start using the new cat litter in all 3 boxes!We did all the laundry, picked cherries, ran the sweeper in the back half of the house, All by Tuesday so Mom said we weren't going to do much today...yeah, I've heard that one before, this week as a matter of fact! hehehe So, right off the bat, what does Mom do? She trims Maya's toenails, then mine, no big deal. Then she gets out those scary demon clippers. They seem to have a life of their own if you ask me. So she spends I don't know how long trying to get me to come close enough to touch. When she gets me, I freak at the vibration, she gets me AGAIN, I freak AGAIN but she holds on this time. I finally settle down to having them touch me. Where does she want to trim me? My FEET! OMD! The first foot is a sight to see. Maya wanted to sell tickets, for Heavens Sake. She said it was like that silly WWE wrestling stuff my Aunt Mindi & G'ma watch on the black box! You can't present me, Chewie in that light for all the world to see. I have a reputation to uphold! Mom prevails and the foot gets trimmed. It looks pretty good actually, but I can't surrender too easy. I don't want to look wimpy like that kid in the books, you know the one! I give her enough trouble on foot #2 to be convincing and by #4 we have it down to a science. Next It's little miss show-off's turn. She gets a full body and a face trim.She doesn'r hardly even have to be held. Not even for the face! It figures! Then we clean cat boxes, feed and water birds, wash cat beds and Maya's T-Bear rug, run the sweeper in the front half of the house and by then it's lunchtime! Whew! I'm gettin' tired all over again just writing this! The after lunch, we do the dishes, run and empty the dishwasher, run the swiffer dustmop over the floors, work on the photo album, check emails and had supper. Maya and I are about shot after supervising all this work and making sure Mom got it right. She thinks she was the boss but we just let the old slavedriver bask in her fantasy because we know better, poor naive human! doesn't realize dogs rule the world! After supper she took us both outside, offleash, to get some exercise and boy did we. It was wonderful and we actually were very good and didn't take off! Now we are finally settled in for the evening and I think Mom earned a reward. Maya agreed when I asked her opinion, so we let her hold a chew stick for Maya and Dad got to hold one for me while we ate them! I know it sounds like we spoil them but what can I say, they deserved it! Have a great night and a wonderful tomorrow! PuppyDog Kisses and Tail Wags, Chewie Cairn Cuddles, Maya

Hey Ruby

Oh my! I was really not expecting to win DOTD. It was such a surprise! Though I did wonder why everyone was voting for me the day before. Momma was so proud and surprised to, she said I looked super cute in the DOTD window. She was glad she had taken my new picture, I got extra hugs and treats today. It was also pretty nice again today, so momma took some more pics of me and will be posting them soon. I want to thank you all for voting for me, it was a amazing surprise. Your all such great doggies! I hope you are all having a good week, Cockapoo Kisses, thank you again! Little Luly Belle

Hi Ruby Rose,

Sorry for the c/p, but being that I was offline, I got a little behind, so this will catch me up (I hope!) I had a great time on vacation, with the exception of my allergies getting worse, but we found out yesterday that I am reacting to my plastic kennel! So dad went out and bought me a new metal one today, which I'm not sure I like, but I guess I will adjust. I really don't have a choice, I guess. The good news is that my ear infection is cleared up and the vet said they are the best they have ever looked. Our vacation took us to Blue Eye, MO and we hiked in the woods, but quit due to all the woodticks there. Mom & dad gave up counting how many they took off me and dad. Mom only had 2. How lucky was she?? Mom & dad took in a couple of shows, which they enjoyed. They found a nice park where we hiked (no ticks), nice paved walkways. After Blue Eye, we traveled to Aurora, IL to visit friends and to meet their 7 month old mixed breed dog, Penny. Penny is a handful, she kept body slamming me and all I did was growled back and slapped at her with my paws. We romped in their backyard and then inside chased each other around the dining room table. All in all, we got along. We spent 4 days there (we stayed in a hotel). Mom had asked for a 1st floor room, but ended up on 3rd floor, so they upgraded us to a suite, boy was that nice! I didn't mind going up 3 flights of stairs for my potty breaks with such a nice room. We have stayed there before and they have a manmade pond with a nice paved walking trail that is one mile, so mom & I walked it every day at least once and one day we did it 3 times. Vacations are fun, but it's always good to be home. Now it's back to normal, except dad's work schedule changed for this week and mom might have to work extra hours since she was gone, but it's as close to normal as it gets around here. I think that sums up my vacation. Thanks to all who dropped by to wish me a happy anniversary. I had completely forgotten about it so it was nice to be remembered. I'm glad you are my furfriends. It's been a really great 2 years! and am looking for many more great years on the DC! Have a great night. 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---

I'm glad you had such a great time in the spotlight. It's fun getting all that attention, isn't it? Thanks for asking about who's running for hotm. One was running but cancelled before even starting so I nominated Shadowfax to run. Mama made a special page for him on my aunt's account. It's the same account from which we run the avatar page. His number is 49806. Then I discovered that there's another runner. Texas 209066. I do not know when they decided to run but now we have two runners. Just two! No one else. Your support would be appreciated. I'm blogging for Shadowfax to everyone who votes from any channel. Leaving another vote for you.
