Ruby Tuesday

21 Aug


I have a bazillion reasons to adore Ruby — no doubt about it. However, even if I didn’t, this one would be enough. My son adores her.

I knew that Ruth would love her and bond with her and play with her and that Ruby would love her back. And, they do — they are great together and it’s all good.

But Gage is not a dog person. He can see a 10 week old Australian Shepherd puppy with soft, silky fur and a sweet look in his eye and think, “Hmmmm. No, I don’t want to pet him, thanks.” He’s just not a dog person.

But he loves Ruby. They are buddies. He’ll throw toys for her for hours. He can walk her because she’s not big enough to pull him over. They cuddle together on the couch or in bed. He feeds her her dinner everyday. They are buds and it is so wonderful to see.

So, rock on, Ruby! You are a great family dog!

    If Gage is hooked on Ruby, that proves that she IS as wonderful as you think. I, personally, think she’s the cutest thing… Perky, smart, and does a good job protecting her yard. I wish everyone would have dogs as energetic and loving as Ruby, Bella & Chloe. They lower BP and make us smile. Right?

    I think there is a dog out there to turn every Non-Dog person into a Dog-person. And Ruby is Gage’s. That is so cute.
