Happy New Year!!!

Tuesday, January 01, 2008


Happy New Year everypup, hammie, kitty & coyote - W00t!!! I had the bestest time at the Corgi Girls pawty and chatting with everypup...but boy am I tired! Plus the fireworks - whew...I still don't like fireworks!

Anyhowl, Mom and I got to talking yesterday and she suggested that I make some New Year's Revolutions. I got a little worried because I don't like the revolutions I have to take already, why would I want to add some more!!! She said it wasn't revolutions but resolutions! Mom said resolutions are things you say at the beginning of every year of that you want to accomplish (but usually don't - hee, hee, hee) by the end of the year.

I didn't make any resolutions last year cause I was still just a little pup-girl, but since I'm older now, she thought I might like to try it...so here are my New Year's Resolutions for 2008...

- Be Green!
At first I was worried because I don't look good in green (not like Clover does). But Mom said that that meant to be nicer to the environment and to reduce my carbon paw print (I don't quite get the paw print part since I already have little paws). I need to do some research on this, but it seems like a really good idea. I started reading Johann's Green Dog blog which has lots of great ideas! You should check it out!

- Go to the park more
Not only because it is fun, but because I get to meet all my doggie friends and get great exercise! And exercise is good for me.

- Learn some new tricks
I feel like I've kind of hit my trick plateau. I need more tricks in my repertoire so I need to get back to school and back to learning more.

- Prepare for my Canine Good Citizen test
I really want to do this because it's the first step to becoming a therapy dog just like Nanook. But I have a long way to go and need to be a lot less bouncy. I think this year I just want to be ready to take the test and maybe in 2009 take the test. We'll see, but this is really important to me.

- Keep on Blogging
I'm pretty sure that won't be a problem because my blog is the best thing that has ever happened to me...aside from adopting my Mom!

and last but not least...

- Get a Dad
Sssshhhhhhhhhh....don't tell Mom I said that. She'd get cranky, but I think I want a dad. All you pups who have them say how great they are so I think I want one. On the teeeveee box there is this commercial that you can get your friends to match you, so I'm going to ask Auntie Kelly or Auntie Yvette or Auntie Kathy to help match my Mom up to get me a dad. But sssssshhhhhh...don't tell her!

OK, so that is my list. It's pretty big, but I think I can do it...so pups, what are your resolutions??? I'm off to nap some more...all that champooch last night - whew! Hope you and your families have a pawsome new year and thanks for being my friends!

Yah! I get to be your first post of 2008!

You really had a serious talk with your mom. Sounds like you mean business with all those resolutions!

My resolution is to try and get my mom to take me on more walkies and to the dog park more often.

Hope you have a great 2008 beautiful!
Sugars,
Mack

Wow you do have a very long list. I think Mom has the same idea about the obedience stuff for Louie and I. He is quite a handful but he is still just a puppy, but he is getting to be a big puppy!!

Happy New Year to you!

Big Sloppy Kisses,
Gus and Louie

Hey Ruby, I can relate to your quest for a dad. I have a dad, but he doesn't live here any more. He's an okay dog sitter sometimes, but it's just not the same. But my mom is so particular. Well, so am I. Just make sure if she picks a dad for you, that she picks a perfect dad for you. No messing around! Us dogs deserve nothing but the best.

Those are some tough resolutions. Can you get a dad at Ikea, I thought they have EVERYTHING there? You might have to put him together, though. Happy New Year!

Kirby said... 5:29 PM

Ruby,

What great resolutions. I didn't make any, and I'm hoping mom doesn't make me. He he! I totally agree with your park resolution, I love going to mine and maybe your Mom will find you a Dad at the park? That would fulfill two resolutions at once. Good Luck!

Your pal,
Kirby

Great list of resolutions Ruby - how long do you think you can keep finding a dad a secret from your mum though?

Best of luck with achieving them all.

That's quite an impressive list Ruby! I want to get my CGC this year too. We can cheer each other on, 'kay?

I think you can probably find a Dad on Ebay. You can pretty much everything and anything there.

Stanley said... 11:53 AM

Ruby Bug!!

I love you, girlie, and am a little sad to see 2007 go because that is the year that brought me to DWB and to YOU! But, I too am looking forward to 2008 and can't wait to see what this year brings.

Maybe you can match up my girl and I'll match up your mama and we can both get dads. Whatdya say?

...gotta go. Girl coming into room...

Goober love & lots of smooches,
Stanny

Marvin - Braveheart Hound said... 4:05 AM

oh what a long list Ruby!

well, here goes, HAPPY NEW YEAR! by the way to you and your Mama!

My revolution is to be more prompt. I am sometimes late with my comments, and also late to other things!

Perhaps my other revolution is to make no revolutions. Scotland is a peaceful country - not sure if I want to start an uprising just yet!!

Wishing you a Pawsome New Year and Thank You for being my friend!

love and licks, Marvin xxxxx

pee ess my Jeannie says hers revolution is to become more computer friendly, instead of threatening the more thing with trips out of the window when she gets mad with it!!

Katherine and Pippa, said... 9:12 AM

Revolutions? No I don't think so. Not for me, but good on you Ruby.

The trouble is we can all check up on you later. hehe

Pippa - and have a great new year.

Johann The Dog said... 11:46 AM

Wow, those are great resolutions!!! I especially like the Green Dog resolution, BOL! Thanks for mentioning my new blog.

I'd love to pass the CGC too, but Mum thinks I would behave very well. I'm a bit too manic. But maybe someday!

Good goals! Woofs, Johann
PS: I'd like a Dad too!
