So my doxie pal Lorenza tagged me to answer 5 questions about what I like. I'm a little late to the game on this (so sorry Lorenza) but better late than never, right?

1.- Where is your favorite place to sleep?
Can I have 2? I really need to list 2. My first one is anywhere where there is sun...but mostly in the corner of my sofa (notice it's MY sofa) on my furry blankie.
The other place is in bed snuggled under the covers right next to my Mom...that way I can protect her and keep her warm. I don't have a picture of that because we are sleeping and you can't take pictures when you are sleeping.

2.- Is there a specific trick your humans make you do to get treats?
Sometimes...I mean I do tricks and I get treats, but I also get treats without tricks and silly rabbit, trix are for kids - hee, hee, hee!

3.- If you could spend an entire day doing anything at all with anyone what would do and with whom?
OK, the perfect day for me would be...
4:30am: Wake Mom up by standing on her tummy and sticking my tongue up her nose until she wakes up.
4:30am - 5:00am: Take a walkie around the 'hood and do my 'bidness'. Also, bark at the evil sprinklers, try and chase the evil cats and try and find the crazy chickens!
5:ooam-6:00am: Bug my mom until she feeds me! This can be in the form of barking or taking one of my favorite toys and trying to convince her to play with me or heaven forbid if she tries to go back to sleep stand on tummy and stick tongue up her nose until she gets up again.
6:00am-6:15: Eat breakfast
6:15am-7:15am: Supervise Mom's wardrobe selection and ensure she has nice deep pockets that will hold LOTS of snackies. Also watch her eat as cute as possible to see if I can score some fruit.
7:15am - 7:45am: Power Nap --- Mom, not me. Me - stand on Mom's tummy and stick tongue up her nose until she gets up.
7:45am - 8:00am: Car ride to the doggie park
8:00am - approx 10:00am: P*A*R*K!!!! So running and bitey face and fetch and snackies and MUD!!!!!!!!!!
10:00am-10:05am: Get washed off by the dreading hose :(
10:05am - 10:20am: Drive home
10:20am-ish - 3:00pm-ish: NAP!!! In the sun, on my blankie (see above) and preferably with my Mom.
3:00pm - 3:15pm: Potty, snackie
3:15pm - 6:00pm: NAP!!!!
6:00pm - 6:15pm: Dinner
6:15pm - 8:00pm - Hang with Mom, play a bit, relax
8:00pm - 9:00pm - Walkie, hang with the pups in the 'hood, potty.
9:00pm get ready for bed

Now THAT is a perfect day for me!!! Oh and who would I spend it with...well my Mom, of course!

4.- What is your favorite toy?
That's tough...I really have so many great toys. I guess my favorite still is my little red ball or the new lil buddy toy my Nanny bought me.
5.- If you could change one thing in your life, what would it be?
Let me be clear...I have the best life!!! The best Mom, the best Sister, the best Nanny, the best Aunties, the best Cousin, the best BFF, the best boyfriend and most of all the best blogging buddies and pup could ever ask for. But if I could change one thing it would be the one February night where I accidentally swallowed that horrible treat.

It got stuck in my e-sloppy-gus (Ruby's Mom: Esophagus) and they had to give me sleepy medicine and stick this thingy down my throats to poke the horrible treat into my tummy. I had to take all this medicine and had a sore throat and didn't want to drink and than I had to have a camel back because I was de-hog-traded (Ruby's Mom: Dehydrated). It was not fun and what's worse is it really scared my Mom and I felt really bad about that. So that would be it. That's what I would change. But that's it...nothing else. My life is pretty much pawfect.

OK, who to tag, who to about Luckie and Bernard and Nanook & Pooka. If you pups haven't been tagged for this already...tell me what you likes!

You get up way too early - how ever do you get enough sleep to remain so beautiful?

Stanley said... 7:13 PM


Sounds like some primo living you're doing over there in Cally -fornya! Wish I could do the park thing and the snuggle thing with you.

I never knew you had an e-sloppy-gus problem and had to take sleepy medicine. Sounds scarie! But, you survived and are happy with your mama (who sounds like a pretty darn good mama for sure)!

No more treat mishaps!

Goober love & hugs,
Your Stanny

Hi, Ruby.
Thanks for playing the game. You have the perfect schedule to spend your day.
That thing with the treat sure it was awful and scary!
Have a good night

Joe Stains said... 11:31 PM

Other than swallowing that nasty treat, you have the best life Ruby! You're one lucky girl!

Love ya lots,

Suki said... 5:19 AM

Ruby, I forgot about your scary trip to the vet - I think you started blogging pretty soon after that and you mentioned it, right? Sooooo scawie!

I like your idea of the "pawfect day", but I don't think my Mom would get up that early. I would be all for it, but she's lazy in the morning! ;)

Puggy kisses

P.S. And I have the best BFF and boyfriend, too! LOL!

Boo said... 7:43 AM

Jackson said... 9:58 AM

I thought I got up early! Isn't it still dark at 4.30? Snoozing in the sun is the best. Then I get too hot and start puffing but I'm too lazy to move into the shade. J x

I had a camel back once!! I had bad poopies and barfies was de-hog-traded too. That was no fun.

You day sounds great! I don't do dog parks but would love to spend 2 hours hunting in the forest!


PreciOus said... 11:27 AM

Hi Ruby, wow you woke up so early? I would still be sleeping till the sun gets my butt which is usually noon time already. *Blush*

fig said... 2:06 PM

WHAT?! You eat for 15 minutes straight?! I only get about 3 pieces of kibble so I'm done in approximately .5 seconds. Not fair!

Tadpole said... 2:08 PM

Oh that is the scariest story ever about your e-sloppy-gus!!! I'm so glad you're okay!

wally said... 3:24 PM

Hey! I like to sleep in the sun, too. I didn't know about your e-sloppy-guts. That's really too bad. I'm glad it wasn't any worse than it was! I had camel back once, too. My apes laughed at me. NOT COOL. I bet you wouldn't laugh at me cuz you are cool.


Seadra & Zoe said... 5:40 PM

Oh, you look great sleeping on that fuzzy blanket. Fuzzy blankets are the best!!

You detailed day sounds like a great dog day to us!!

Love, Seadra and Zoe

Sweets-littlebigman said... 7:10 PM

Hi ya Ruby! Your pawfect day sounds just wonderful. Mom thinks it's funny that you keep sticking you tongue up your Mom's nose. That must be quite a shocking thing to wake up to...way to go Ruby! I think I will try that to see what kind of reaction I would get. Wow, that 'e-sloppy-gus' thing sounds absolutely horrid. Glad you are all okay now. That must've been quite traumatic for you, even though you were asleep.


leah said... 1:07 AM
