Trick-or-Treating is PAWSOME!!!!

Friday, October 31, 2008

OMD, OMD, pups!!!! Trick-or-Treating is pawsome - W00t! My silly Mom was really worried I'd be stressed out with all the people pups ringing our doorbell, but OMD it was SO...MUCH...FUN!!!!

So I got ready. Costume...check.


Hey, Mom, where are all the people pups??? Are they here yet???

At first I was a little embarrassed with my dragonfly costume, but all the people pups LOVED me!!! I got TONS of pats and got to give lots of licks...OMD it was so great!!! Too bad we ran out of candy and it started to rain...I can't wait till next year!!!

Note from Mom:
I was TOTALLY stressed. Where we used to live we never got any kids on Halloween. I actually prayed for rain. Since we've moved Ruby tends to 'freak' whenever the doorbell rings...I guess I should be happy because people think she is bigger than she really is - LOL. But I was worried she'd try and bolt out the front door. I didn't want to have to keep her locked in a room, banish her outside or put her on a leash. The baby gate wound up working great! It let her look outside and get tons of pats!!! The kids really did love her (and her costume) and I think she really dug it. I also was able to work on some much needed training with her...which was really good. It also didn't hurt that I gave her a little nip of Rescue Remedy ;) All and all it was a really good night!!!



An early Halloweenie Prezzie for Me!!!

Thursday, October 30, 2008

Lookie, lookie, lookie what my Mom sent me for Halloween...

And look what she got me...


Well, he's not actually mine and he's not coming to live with us (even though I told her it was a WONDERFUL idea), but Mom and I are sponsoring Frank at Best Friends.  Isn't he handsome???  Wasn't that a sweet gift???  I still think it would be better if he came to live with us tho'.

Best Friends is the cool place that the Brat Pack's Mom and Shermie, Penny and Lola's Mom visited last year.  They do such wonderful rescuing my Frank.  Mom and I know that right now it's tough times financialy for families.  But our furfriends still need us and every little bit helps so please donate to Best Friends or the resuce of your choice this Halloween!  Mom said to do that instead of buying extra candy!!!  That's kinda crazy if you ask me, but than again, I'll be getting candy soon from Tanner and Scooter anyway - W00t!!!

A call to duty...

Tuesday, October 28, 2008


Today I want to dedicate my post to Winnie, the wonder lab!!! This past weekend Winnie left her family to move on to Guide Dog Boot Camp.  Winnie's family did such a pawsome job of taking care of her and teaching her right that she is now ready to start learning how to be a guide dog.  It's going to be a lot of hard work, but if anypup can do it, I know Winnie can.  One day some lucky pawson is going to be owned by Winnie...and I sure hope they know what a special girl-pup she is!!!  Good luck Winnie...I know you are going to be a star!

It was really hard for Winnie's family (especially her mom, Julie) to let her go. They are one super-special family to have dedicated the past year to help raise Winnie to be the bootiful and smart pup-girl that she is.  She is going to make the bestest guide dog ever...I just know it!  

Oh and Miss Julie...if you ever need some puppy love, just let me know and I'll be there with my nub-a-waggin!

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year...Part II

Thursday, October 23, 2008

Hey everypup!!! Thanks for the great comments on my decorations! They are pretty fun and scawie!!! I thought I'd share a few more of our decorations...oh and Nanny, we'll try and leave some of the decorations up for your visit...W00t!

The first two really aren't that scawie...more fallish...

Shhh...don't tell anypup...I took that pine cone when I visited Lake taterTahoe last spring...

I'm not sure why this guy is called a 'scarecrow', he doesn't look very scawie to me!

This is Boo the Ghost, not to be confused with Boo the Casanova - hee hee hee. Oh and that's my Auntie Joey and cousin Danny...Hi Auntie Joey and Cousin Danny!!! I can't wait until you visit me next month!!! W00t!!!

Isn't this little guy fun? He's hanging out in the kitchen watching over the veggies...Mom said his eyes used to light up, but they don't anymore --- boo hoo.
Oh and I like this guy too...he's protecting our icee can't see it, but he's wearing red Converse sneakers!!! This is one of my Mom's favorite decorations!!!

Mom seems to have really liked punkin' heads because look at this...
I like the angry one, hee hee hee!!! Also if you look real close the fabric on the table has little ghosties on it!!!!

And isn't this just the best...Mom says this would be us taking a walk if we were skelertons - BOL!!!
Well, that's it...and just because this is my blog here is yet another picture of my costume!!!

It's the most wonderful time of the year...

Tuesday, October 21, 2008

No, that wonderful...the other wonderful time...


This year, Mom brought out all her cool decorations now that we have room for them in the new house. I thought I share a few things with you...

First up, just look at those beady eyes of his...ewwww...wouldn't want to meet him in a dark alley, huh?


Next there is Mr. Angry Pumpkin...


Yeah, I guess I'd be angry too with no nose and no way to sniff butts or eat snackies!

Ooooh, this is a fun one! It's a dancing tree that every time you touch it or even come near it, it dances and makes scawie noises. Mom actually had to turn it off because every time I barked he would start - hee hee hee!


Here's the newest edition to our Halloweenie family, Bart the Bat! Isn't he just the cuterest??? He used to live in a different place in the family room, but I tried to take him as my own so Mom stole him back and put him high on top the lamp so I couldn't get to him! Meany Mom!!!


And speaking of Meany Mom, I think this pretty appropriate, don't you???

witchisin is so true, so true. OK, I better go before Mom gets mad at me for that last comment. I'll be back tomorrow with some more of our spooky decorations. Hey, post some pictures if you've decorated too!!

Thursday is brought to you by the letter 'T'

Thursday, October 16, 2008


Lorenza gave me the letter 'T'.  I am supposed to list 10 things that I love that start with the letter 'T'.  Here goes...

1. TREATS...well duh, of course I love treats.  Ok, so that was easy.

2. TWO...I love being TWO...well 2 and a half actually, but I LOVE IT!!!

3. TOMATOES...I don't get them all the time, but when I do, I like them.  'Specially the teeny-tiny sweet ones!

4. Warm TOWELS...just out of the dryer...ahhh, I love them.  I don't like them when I get a bath because I don't like baths, but ahhh...

5. And when I get warm towels, it makes me all TOASTY, I like being toasty...and so does my Mom when I snuggle with her.

6. TRIPS!  How could I forget trips...especially on my bootiful AireRuby!  And speaking of trips, don't forget I'm still taking reservations for the Halloween Pawty at the Tower of London!!!!

7. TEXAS...because that is where my Macky comes from.

8. TENNIS BALLS...when I go to the park, that is what I love to play fetch with.

9. TULIPS...hey wait a Mom made me put that.  Those are her favorite flowers!!!  Mom, is that a hint you want me to send you tulips???  Is it???

and finally...

10. TUMMY RUBS...oh you know how I love me, my tummy rubs!!!

If anypup wants to play along, let me know and I'll give you a letter - W00t!

She's finished...and I just couldn't wait!!!

Tuesday, October 14, 2008

First there was Wonder Ruby because of my lightening speed...

Then there was the Yarn Dog because of my mad skillz with knitting...

And today, for 2008, I give you...

The Dragon Fly!!!!


 When Mom told me we would base this year's costume on my adventures with a dragon fly, I actually had something else in mind!!!! Like maybe a pith helmet and a net??? How embarrassing!!!! What do you pups think??? Oh well, there is always next year's costume, right?  I like Beckett's idea of dressing up like Bob...hee hee hee!

Anyhowl, now on to the real important stuff...our winners!!!

The winning pup in the drawing for just leaving a guess is....

I think the last line of the Haiku must have given it away - BOL!!! There were 10 pups who guessed correctly!!! Nice work, you pups know me well. So the winning pup out of all who guessed correctly is...

And since I really enjoyed this contest I'm awarding a special prize to the pup who guessed my costume first (don't you just love how I keep changing the rules - BOL!!!)...

Congratulations to our winners!!! - W00t!!!

Please send me an email at 'r u b y . b l e u @ y a h o o . c o m' (no spaces of course) with your name and address and you'll recieve a special Halloweenie Prezzie in the mail.

Thanks everypup for playing!!!
Happy (almost half way to) Halloween!!!!

Sleepy Sunday #33

Sunday, October 12, 2008

In keeping with Halloween, today's Sleepy Sunday guest star is the Sleeping AireChicken, um I mean Baby Stan. Awwww....doesn't he make the most adorable AireChicken???

Don't forget to make your guess for my Halloween costume. Tomorrow will be the last clue! And of course, Aire Ruby is still taking reservations for Eric, Asta and Lacie's Halloween Pawty at the Tower of London - it's going to be a frightfully delicious time!!!! W00t!!!

Happy Sunday!

Halloween Hint #2

Friday, October 10, 2008

Well, so far your entries have been very interesting...but has someone gotten it right? hmmm...I'll never tell, well not until next week at least!

Today's clue is a photo hint...

Hint #2

As requested by Maggie I gave a little bit of fabric! Now which part is actually the costume? Is it the sparkly green part or the blue part? Or is it both??? I wonder if these colors will work with my fur??? The plot thickens...

If you want to play along, just leave a comment with what you think my Halloween costume is. I'll have one more hint on Monday and unveil my costume later next week. I'm not going to announce the winner until the end so you won't know who is right or not so if you guess the same as somepup else that is ok.

Oh and I've decided to give 2 prizes! That's right TWO - W00t! I'll have one drawing for anypup leaves me a comment with a guess. It gets better because if you guess multiple times, I'll enter you as many times as you guess!!! Isn't that pawsome! And of course any pup who guesses the correct costume will be entered in a separate drawing. OMD this is going to be the bestest. So get guessing pups!!!

And don't forget to RSVP for Eric, Asta and Lacie's Halloweenie Pawty at the Tower of will be very, very spooky!!!!

Halloween Contest - Guess my Costume

Wednesday, October 08, 2008

A lot of you pups have been asking what I'm going to be for Halloween. I guess I have a bit of a reputation for interesting costumes. I blame my Mom.

Anyhowl, I think I'm going to make you pups guess. Over the next few days I'll post 3 different hints. For those of you who guess correctly, I'll put your names into a hat and ask Auntie Yvette to randomly select a winner and I will send you something fun for Halloween. What do you think? Wanna play?

So here we go...leave a comment with your guess, OK?

Hint #1...

The idea for my costume is based on a blog post.

Hmmm...interesting. You know, I've done over 300 posts so you better get looking!!! BOL!!! Oh I'll unveil my costume and announce the winner next week.

Sleeping in the Pumpkin P(atch)olar Fleece ;)
Have a great Sunday!

There is still time...

Thursday, October 02, 2008

Yesterday my Mom got her sample ballot in mail for the November 4th pawsidential election.  I was very sad to not see my candidate on the ballot even with all the coverage he's been getting...

Pups, make sure to bark at your hoomans to get out and vote on Nov 4th!  It's really, really important!!!!  Oh and if they aren't registered yet, there is still time...they have until October 6th!!!
