On my day off....

Saturday, March 29, 2008

So out of the bleu, Mom surprised me yesterday morning saying...
"Ruby, guess what, I'm going to stay home and hang out with you ALL DAY!"
Imagine my surprise...and she wasn't even sick. Well she did mumble something about a "Mental Health Day", but I wasn't really sure what she was talking about. It didn't much matter because I had my Mom with me to just hang out and I L*O*V*E that.

So the day started out great...we walked, I ate my breakie, had my paws cleaned, took my medicine and we settled on my couch for a nappy. Well, I napped and Mom worked (hey, I thought you weren't going to work?). Anyhowl we did that for a good long while until the phone rang.

I didn't get much of the convo, but it was something about Granny E. being itchy and that Auntie Michele might need some help with Maddy. Well, all Granny E. needed to say was Maddy and Mom was up off the sofa (disturbing my nap BTW). So Mom fluttered about for a while, made a few phone calls, took a shower (thank dogness, she was a bit skanky at this point), got dressed and got me leashed up for a walkie... W00t! A walkie!

Well it was a short walkie that's for sure. Than Mom left! Yes, she left me! Gone! Bye-bye Ruby! And she was gone for a while too...and look what I found on the camera this morning...

Yep, that's Maddy alright...or at least I think that is who it is because I've not met her yet!!! Can you believe that?!?!?! I know my Mom visits her all the time because I can sniff my cuzins Bob and Cooper. But I've not met her yet, something about me being too bouncy and crazy and getting the 'boys' all wild. That is SO not fair!!!

Oh wait...look, more evidence...here's Cooper relaxing...

And more Maddy...geesh...poor kid Mom is scaring her I think...

When Mom got home I just ignored her. Well, she deserved it I think, this was supposed to be MY day. I guess Auntie Michele needed to go take care of some stuff with Bob and Cooper's horsey bro' Bailey and she needed someone to watch Maddy. Of course Mom jumped at the chance to spend some quality girly-girl time with Maddy! Hey, I'm a girly-girl...why couldn't I come?!?!?! So not fair! Heck, I can't believe Auntie Michele and Uncle Mark trusted her - LOL!!!

Anyhowl, Mom promises she's all mine this weekend...she better be telling the truth otherwise I might pee in her bed or something ;) I'll leave you with this last piece of evidence...ok, this is a cute one...

Doing Nothing InStyle

InStyle
Hey Pups...not much to report...in fact it is VERY boring right now. I've not gone to the park because of my athlete's paw, but I am being a good girl taking my medicine and letting Mom wash my paws.

So aside from napping in the sun which I L*O*V*E, I've been spending quality time with one of my favorite mags...InStyle. The Best Buys article was just fabulous!!! I just wish they had something in there about curing my athlete's paw!

A Medical Mystery!

Thursday, March 20, 2008

So over the last few week's my Mom has been noticing that the nails on my left paw were looking weird. Weird how you may ask? Well they were changing colors to icky brown. Oh and I started licking them too. So off to the V.E.T. we go.

Well, leave it to me to stump Dr. Catherine and all the other nice dogtors at Hazel Ridge. All the dogtors came to investigate. They poked, they prodded, they scraped, they ooh'd and ahhh'd and finally the had to break out the dogtor books. And what did they find...

athletespaw
Yup, I have a yeasty in my nails...I have althlete's paw! I know, I know...how did I get that? Well it's not because I'm hanging out in stinky locker rooms--as if! Actually they don't know how I gots it, but I do and I have to get two different kinds of medicines too!!!

First, Mom needs to clean my paw with this 3 times a day...
medicine
It's actually angry ear wash, but they said I need to use it on my paw. Also I have another prescription that Mom has to get at a special pharmacy that I have to eat, but they promised to make it in yummy peanut butter flavor for me. What's really bad is that I have to take this for at least 3 months before it will go away!!! I know, can you believe it?

Dr. Catherine even went so far as to say I had to wear booties to go to the park...but I barked "No no no - I don't like clothes or booties" and she finally said I didn't have to as long as I let Mom wash my paws real good after we come home. I guess I can let her do that!

So...I was the medical mystery of the day at my dogtors!!! What can I say, I'm just special!!!

oops

StPaddyDay
Do you like my collar???

Unfortunately I'm not going to any parade nor will I be drinking green beer because my is home sick with the flu. Never fear, Florence Nighting-Ruby is taking good care of my Mom. I really like when Mom doesn't feel well because we get to snuggle lots and eat lots of icee things for her sore throat (I'm her official taste tester of course).

One last thing before I get back to my nursing duties...I want to wish THIS handsome boy...
A VERY Happy GooberVersary - W00t! I woof you Stanny!!!

(Now Mack, don't get jellyfish...I woof you too - LOL)

Welcome to the Family

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

So you pups know my Nanny and her wheelie pug Opal, right? Well, Opal got a real-life puggy sister today named Pearl! Here she is...
Isn't she just the cuterest??? And she looks good in pink too...my kinda girl! Nanny adopted her from a family who couldn't keep her anymore. She was a little nervous today, but Nanny and Opal are really really excited and taking very good care of her to make her welcome!!! W00t! Pearl hasn't met my sissy Sophia yet...they are going to wait a few days so that Pearl can settle in, but I'm sure they will be BFFs in no time. I have to say, I'm just a little jellyfish!

Welcome to the family Pearl. Everypup...make sure you go visit Pearl and say hi!!!

Makin It...

Tuesday, March 04, 2008

So ever since Maggie posted about the Whippets tag yesterday, my Mom has been humming this cheesey 70's tune. Silly woman! Anyhowl, Maggie tagged me to post about making something. Here's what she Maggie barked:

I'm challenging bloggers to make something, anything, and post about it. Let's see what you creative people come up with! Here are the rules:

1. Make something, anything. It doesn't have to be complicated or artsy. Make a list, take an interesting picture, make some one's day, make dinner, make a doodle, make fun of yourself, make a poem, make your bed (OK, that last one is lame).
2. Write a blog about it. With pictures for extra brownie points.
3. Link to this blog and challenge six other bloggers to do the same.
Well, as you pups all know I am VERY talented. What I thought I would share is about something I do very very well which is....
MAKING A MESS!!!!
Do you pups remember that post? Well I gave Mom quite a surprise when she came home from lunch and saw that I had performed open bed surgery - hee hee hee. I still proclaim my innocence.
Does this look like the face of a guilty pup? I think not.

I somehow think this is not what Maggie and the Whippets had in mind so I thought I would tell you about something Mom recently made for my Auntie Joey for her barkday. You know how I always tell you about how my Mom likes to knit, well, she made this really really cool journal/notebook cover...

Journal-Post

I have to say, even I'm impressed by this!!! Just look at the cable-y details...

cable

And I like the pretty ribbon she used too...very chic I think!!!

ribbon

Auntie Joey really liked it a lot and was very proud to show it off. My Mom said she really liked making it too!

Well, now I have tag 6 doggies...let's see...I'm going to tag my Mack, Sparky, Asta, the ever handsome Marvin, my divas-in-crime Lola and Bella the Boxer! Show us what you can make!
