Weekend Update

Sunday, August 05, 2007

On Saturday we woke up pretty early and went to the park. I met up with a cute 4month old beagle boy named Max. He was a sweetie, but kinda new to the dog park scene so I took it upon myself to show him the way of the park. After a little while he was running and chasing me and we were playing tug.

My proudest moment tho' was when I showed him how to play in the mud!!! Ahhhh.....the mud...you know I love it and I take great pride in sharing my love of the luscious brown goodness...and it was fresh too...vintage 6am I think. Ahhhh.....unfortunately his Mom wasn't impressed and every time he ventured over to the mud, his Mom would come and pick him up and than go hose him down...poor little fella.

So you're wondering where all the pictures are, aren't you? Well, Mom didn't bring the camera because it's not been working too well lately...plus it was early and quite frankly I think she forgot it.

Rest of the day I spent doing this..
See, the camera is still working...what's wrong with this woman???

All the while Mom was cleaning! I think napping is much more fun, don't you?

So why was Mom cleaning? See we are getting a visitor! Mom's best pal Auntie Kelly is coming for a visit from Colorado next weekend and Mom wants the place perfect for her. It's going to be a super fun girls weekend...Mom and her have been devising all these plans and I just know they include me!!! I'll keep you pups posted.

On to Sunday...we started the morning chatting with a bunch of you pups. That's always so much fun and great way to start the day. Then what did we do? Well the park again!!! Yay!!! This time since there weren't any pups in the small side of the park my Weimaraner pal Remmy came to play with me. I L*O*V*E playing with Remmy. He chased me, but I was still faster - hee, hee, hee. His Dad and Mom just got back from their honeymoon...they looked so happy!!! It was so great to see them and I was so happy to play with Remmy!!!

After the park Mom headed off to Ikey-Ya and I got really excited because it sounded like she was going to visit Ike...than I got a little mad because she wasn't taking me. But turns out she went to this store called I-K-E-A and didn't go visit Ike. Too bad, I think visiting Ike would have been much more fun if you ask me.

So when Mom got home she had these two ginormous bags filled with stuff. And can you believe it...NOTHING FOR ME!!! What's up with that???

Ruby's Mom: Uh, Ruby, let me cut in here for a sec...I did buy you something, remember?
Ruby: Hmmm...oh, you mean these????
Ruby's Mom: Yes. What? Don't you like them? They are for when I make you Frosty Paws? I thought they were cute.
Ruby: OK, yeah, they are cute, but Mom, don't you know, I'm into immediate gratification, ok?
Ruby's Mom: You're sounding a tad bit spoiled there Ruby.
Ruby: Spoiled is for milk and eggs, not for cute pups like me! Hee, hee, hee!
Ruby's Mom: ***rolls eyes and walks off to fold laundry***

And that was the weekend...some laundry and more cleaning for Mom. Me...can you guess what I did? Yup...I napped some more!!! All and all, not too bad!

So I'm way behind in my tags-sorry Lorenza and Coco - I promise I'll get to them this week sometime. Oh and because of our upcoming house guest we may not be able to comment on everyone's blogs this week - but we'll do our best and certainly we'll be reading!

Miss Ruby Bleu! I do love the way you sass your mom... bet your house is sooo much fun! 'milk and eggs' who knew?


Stanley said... 10:16 PM

Ruby Bug!

That Tofu is right! Your are SASSY. I love sauciness, and you are filled up with it all the way to the tips of your perfect little ears!

Sounds like a great weekend to me - playing at the park, rolling in mud, sleeping, chattin' online with pup pals, playing at the park, sleeping, sassin', etc. The only thing missing was your Suki and me. Too bad we can't be there with you.

Goober love,

Balboa & Mommy said... 3:44 AM

I like the new look Ruby and I the line about being spoiled. I have to use that, that's a good one.

I hope this Auntie Kelly gives belly rubs like Autie Yvette.

Meanie mommys taking Max out of the mud, doesn't she know that's the fun part!

Suki said... 6:19 AM

Nothing eatable or chewable for you, Ruby? How could your Mom do that to you? I know how mad I am when my Mom comes home without anything for me!

I would have loved to see you run faster than Remmy. Maybe your Mom can catch it on film next time ;)

Puggy kisses

Way to show the newbie the ways of the dogpark Ruby! Esp. the mud.

It is a happy way to spend the weekend. :)

Amber-Mae said... 7:42 AM

Hey, you have the same heart shaped rubber ice tray like I do! But mine's pink in color & mommy uses that to make Frosties for me...Mommy said it's much easier to squeeze the ice or frosties out than the hard plastic ones. Hope she makes you loads of it!

Love licks,

Mmm... MUD

Sounds like you had a lot of fun. But why don't moms understand about instant gratification? Mine doesn't either!

Frasypoo said... 12:04 PM

I' d be a little wary of your moms friend...they tend to get all caught up with each other and then they forget us !!!I just went thro that and I am sending my deepest sympathies to you

Lorenza said... 12:14 PM

Hi, Ruby.
Glad you had the chance to show Max the right way to have fun there. Too bad he couldn't get in the mud as much as he'd liked it!
Lets us know about your Auntie Kelly visit and all the fun thing you will be doing.
Have a nice day

coco said... 1:13 PM

what an irresistable picture of your sleepy face!!!

my barkday is august 17 - right around the corner! but now i'm a little worried about not getting properly spoiled, since my girl is moving into her first apartment this weekend, and my boy is moving up to sha-kawgo the week after that, to start school. i feel a little sad already.

*sniff* coco

Ginger said... 2:53 PM

Hi Ruby! Sounds like you had a very productive weekend - park, pup pals, mud, napping - what more could a girl want? Hope you have fun with your aunt kelly! Make sure you share some of that mud with her ok?

Mom LOVES ikea, but they don't have dog toys there so I think its a gigantic waste of time. They do have dog beds and blankets, but those are BORING!

wally said... 4:21 PM

Hi Rubies! It was totally awesome to chat with you on Sunday even though you were up at the (butt) crack of dawn! I like to get up early, too, so I can get plenty of napping in.


Luckie Girl said... 7:51 PM

Hey Ruby,
Didn't your Mom get anything from Ikea for you? They have a pets section too! Anyhoo, Mom buys those kids toys for me. They squeak too and yeah, i'm not too fussy.

Asta said... 8:11 PM

Your weekend sounded good fun especially the muddy part....I love the mud too.

Hope you have fun with your Auntie Kelly! love and licks from Marvin xxxxxx

Tadpole said... 11:47 AM

Ooooh... mud! And grass! And maybe a little poo mixed in... mmMMMmmm! Poor Max, I hope his mom looks away for a while so he can enjoy the pleasures of being a dog. :-)

Sophie Brador said... 6:13 PM

I'll take a frosty paw! You can bring one along when you bail me out. Surely those t-shirts will sell overnight.

Jackson said... 9:55 AM

Love the new look blog, Ruby. Mud is the greatest, isn't it? Too bad the humans never seem to get it. J x

Hercules said... 10:18 AM


I love the picture of you sleeping. You look like a beautiful Ruby Angel! So peaceful and with a calmness about you!

Wet kisses and booty scratches to you Ruby!
