One Week...

Tuesday, January 29, 2008

One week from today is not just another Tanner Tuesday but actually a Super Tuesday. Super Tuesday is the day where a whole bunch of states have primate-aries and cat-cuses which are part of the long winded way we decide on a President. California has a primate-ary that day and here I am helping Mom decide how she should cast her vote...


I had to be honest with her...I really think there is a better choice than what was on the ballot. We need canine-idates who are honest, hard working, uniters. Canine-idates who can really force a change in our country and the world. No, I'm not talking about Hillary or Obamamamamama or that Huckleberry, I'm talking the real deal here. I'm talking about...

That's right!!! Tad and Joe!!! (Ruby's Mom: But Ruby, they aren't on the ballot and um, they are dogs. Ruby: Well Mom, write them in for dogs sake! Do I have to do everything for you???? And Tad even promises to buy you a pony!!!!)

Go Tad, Go Joe, GO GO GO!!! W00T!

The Elvis/Snaggletooth Edition...

Thinking good thoughts...

Saturday, January 26, 2008

You all know I'm not a huge kitty fan...all except for Tia, Sitka's big sis. Well on the eve of her big meowday she is sick and staying at the vet!!! That is no way to be spending your meowday especially when we should be sunning ourselves on the beach!!! Head on over to visit Sitka and get all the details. Sitka is really lonely without Tia to snuggle with and really needs our support now.

Don't worry Sitka everything will be just fine and we'll reschedule the pawty as soon as Ms. Tia is all better!!!

Get Well Soon Tia!!! Love, Ruby (and my Mom too!)

The Music in Me...

Wednesday, January 23, 2008

On a bunch of pups sites I've noticed they have turned a little musical and are showing you their albums so I thought I would show you my debut release...
Yes that is right...debuting at #1 on this week's Billboard Dance/Techno charts is ME!!! Ruby Bleu, lead singer of Creatures of the Night with my debut album High Velocities in Aviation. I think my album title is quite appropriate, don't you? I mean with all the flying on Aire Ruby and all. And I do like to sometimes roam around the house at night. Do you wanna be a music star too??? Come on, you know you want to. Here's what you need to do...

First, go to THIS website... the title of the first article that comes up is the name of your band!

Next, go to THIS website... look at the last quote on the page, the last 4 words of that quote are the name of your album!

Finally, go to THIS website and look at the 3rd picture... that's the art for your album cover!

Now ... put it all together (using the photo editing software or Mom's favorite online photo editing site Picnik) into a cool album cover!

Oh and here I am...getting ready to do a sound check....

Sleepy Sunday #3

Sunday, January 20, 2008

Oh and for those of you interested, I have a new auntie!!! Nanny got herself a wheely pug named Opal (hmmm....Ruby - Opal, I get it now!) and she started her own bloggy...W00T! She hasn't posted yet, but I'm sure she will soon.

Shhhhh it's a Surprise Pawty!!!

Friday, January 18, 2008

So I know there are TONS of pawty stuff going around. Aire Ruby is very, very busy these days. But today I have a VERY special pawty to talk about...

It's not every day you turn 15, right? Well Tia, Sitka's big sister kitty is turning 15! W00t!!! Sitka and I have been barking about what we could do to celebrate this very special occassion and Sitka came up with the most pawsome idea...lets go tropical...let's go to Jamaica!!!

We can surf and eat jerk chicken and build sand castles and play beach volleyball, para-sail and drink pina coladas...oh my I could just go on and on!!!

So Aire Ruby is pleased to announce it is now taking reservations for Tia's SURPRISE Barkday (or is it Meowday) Pawty in Jamaica January 25-27th (27th is actually Tia's special day). We'll be spending the entire weekend in Jamaica at the Sandals Dog & Cat Resort in Montego Bay. You'll notice on their site they don't mention anything about there being a doggie/kittie resort because it's so exclusive. But don't worry, they are ready for us! Just look at how bootiful this place is...

I can just see it now...Sitka and Zimmy lying in the shade sipping a frosty beverage. Tia and Wilbur playing volleyball, Joe and Sophie lounging on a raft...oh, what fun we will have.

So I know this kind of last minute but we want everyone to come!!! So just leave me a comment and also visit Sitka's blog and let her know! It is going to be a blast - W00T!!!

Awards, Awards, Awards...

Thursday, January 17, 2008

So Mom is bummed. You see this whole writer's strike has gotten her down. Oh sure John and Stephen are back and that makes her happy, but this is her playoff season, the Oscars her SuperBowl. If Sunday's Golden Globes press conference is any indication of what she has to look forward too...well, I'll be in for a lot of whining (Ruby's Mom: I haven't been whining!!! Ruby: Oh, yes you have!).

Why I bring this up is because my Mom needs to look no further than right next to her. That's right that cute little dog, with the purple ball in her mouth is the winner of not one but two awards recently! W00t!! I've been a little remiss in mentioning them, so I'm really sorry, but here they are...

From Marvin, Maya & Kena, Harry & Cassidy and Bogart I got this...

I make their day!!! Well pups, you make mine too and so does...Mack, Clover, Tucker and the rest of the Brat Pack, diva girl Lola and the rest of the Jackman pups, Peanut & Flash, Sitka & Tia, Joey & Tanner, Maggie & Mitch and little Petra! All you pups make my day, everyday!!!

The next award I got was from Joe Stains...

In his introduction of me I believe he said that I make him think of "spunky Boston Babes". Now that is something...I think I'm blushing a little ;) This is a very cool award!!!

The rules attached to this award are:

1. You must write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
2. Acknowledge this post.
3. Optional - proudly display the Thinking Blogger Award with a link to the post that you wrote.

So who makes me think? Let me think, let me think...

Stanley & Stella
, Marvin and Jeannie, Bella the Boxer, Asta (I know she already won, but she definitely makes me think), and of course Sir Chance.

Actually to me...every pup on DWB is a winner in my book...heck, who needs those other silly awards shows, right?

On to other things, don't forget about all our Aire Ruby adventures coming up. Of course there is the SuperBowl party and Koobie's Valentine's Pawty in the Poconos. I think Scruffy is playing poker this weekend and there is one super secret, extra-special trip both Sitka and I are planning. I'll tell you all about that tomorrow...but just a little hint... pack for the sun!!! For any of these trips, just leave me a comment about which trip and how many and I will save you a spot!!!

And finally...thanks for all the kind words and thoughts about Suki. I really, really miss her and will make sure to pass along all your messages! And I leave you with this because after all, it is my blog...

Thanks everypup, hammie, coyote and kittie for being my friend and putting up with me being a little slow visiting your sites lately. I woof you all!

Where or Where...

Tuesday, January 15, 2008

Recently, a bunch of you pups have been emailing me, leaving me comments and cbox messages asking me about my BFF Suki and the fact that they can't get to her blog anymore. I thought I would let you know what is up...

First off, Suki is fine and so is her family---that's what is really important, right? But right now Suki and her family are focusing on some other more important things and aren't really able to blog. That's why her blog went away.

As you can imagine, this makes me really sad...but I understand and know that she hasn't abandoned me or any of us...she just needs to take some time away. Suki will always be my best friend forever and I woof her very, very much!!!

So that's it. I promise to keep you all updated if I hear from her or my Mom hears from her Mom. In the meantime we just need to send some good DWB vibes her way and who knows...hopefully she will be back soon. - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more

I want to thank my Stanny for help in writing this post. It was really hard for me to figure out what to say and as always my Stanny came through! Thanks Stanny...I woof you!

A Celebrity Among Us...

Monday, January 14, 2008

So we knew about all his agility work, oh and that he's got a blog dedicated to being a Green Dog...but I never knew he was THAT famerous...
That's's Johann and he's Dog of the Day at Celebrity Dog Watcher! W00t! Who knew??? Congrats Johann!!!

In case you were wondering - YES, I've inherited the gossip gene from my Mom...I love checking out this site and following all the famerous pooches...I particularly love to read about Licorice - swoon - he's my George Clooney!!!

Oh and I have tons to fill you in on...Awards, Koobie's Pawty and Mom actually finishing a knitting project - OH MY!!! Promise to write more this week!

Sleepy Sunday #2

Sunday, January 13, 2008


Thursday, January 10, 2008

I am being neglected! Don't believe me? Here are the facts:

1) My Mom has been to work abandoning me. Doesn't she know that after 2 weeks of us being together you just can't leave me cold turkey (yummmmmmm cold turkey)!

2) Hardly any walkies. Oh sure is wet outside and I don't like the rain and I really hate my rain slicker, but at least try and show a little effort!

3) She's not locking me in my kitchen prison anymore. OK, maybe I should be happy about this, but I see it as her just not caring what I do while she is out gallivanting!

4) She's not playing that stupid Wii game...yeah I don't like it, but she made such a big deal about getting one, than terrorized me with it and now it's just collecting dust!

5) Oh sure, doesn't have time for me, but on two occasions this week she came home smelling like Bob! What, is she cheating on me again?????

6) Hasn't made any time to help me blog or visit YOUR blogs!!! If I don't watch it, you pups will not love me anymore or wanna fly on AireRuby and just plain forget about me!

7) Oh and finally I get to do a post, but I have no pictures. How can I do a post with out pictures??? It is just not right!!!

What is this world coming to???? I'm clearly being neglected, right? Maybe I should just run away...

Are you ready for some 'super' football????

Monday, January 07, 2008

Aire Ruby is pleased to announce it is now taking reservations for Gus & Joe's SuperBowl Extravaganza Weekend!

Now I don't know much about footyball except what Joe and Wally talk about, but I know this is going to be one pawasome event. I mean, how could it not be considering who our hosts are? And the thought of a half-time show with Teka and Tanner...I mean even if you're not a footyball fan you can't possibly miss that, could you?

So if you are interested in attending, leave me a comment. As always, Aire Ruby will be stocked with the finest snackies available. And on this flight we will be screening Puppy Bowl IV on the new, giant, HDTV, flat-screen TeeVee that Aire Ruby got as a Christmas prezzie!!!

So even if you don't like footyball...come on and enjoy the fun!!! Woot!!!

Special Mission...

Wednesday, January 02, 2008

Trooper Ruby Bleu reporting for duty!
Supreme Commander Stormy of the AO4 set forth our first mission for 2008 - it's a mission of the utmost importance and one long overdue...

The orders for the mission are simple...
" whatever it takes to locate Beau, and return him to his family!"
Beau has been missing from his family for a really long time - 5 whole years!!! He needs to get home! His family really misses him. For those of you who don't know Beau's story, you can check out his website and also visit his brother Hammer who has been diligently trying to get the word out!

Me, I'm just trying to do my part by spreading the web word...I'm also training for my mission...

Here I am looking for clues...ummm mud

On perimeter patrol

And here I am doing some 'undercover' work!

You don't need to be a member of the AO4 to take part in this mission...all you need is a mission kit and be willing to spread the word! Here's to bringing Beau home!!! W00t!

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 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 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!
