Awards and Angry Ears

"You like me, you really like me!"

Sally Field, Academy Awards - 1985
Ruby Bleu, @Home - 2007

Wow! Thank you pups!!! What an honor to be Featured Blog for August and to share it with my beautiful doxie pal Luckie (Congrats - Luckie)! I had totally forgotten about the contest this weekend until Opy sent me a pee-mail! This is so exciting!!! Thanks to everyone who voted for me and for my buddies Nanook and Pooka for nominating me. Also - Congrats to Gussie for winning Awesome Blog and to Ronin for Photo of the Month - Woot!!!

Now on to something a little less pleasant...I have an ANGRY EAR!!! (Ruby's Mom: Ruby has an ear infection). It is all red and hurts and makes me shake my head a lot. Luckily I don't have the yeasties like Suki I still feel all clean and fresh but still this is SO not fun. Every night I have to get these..
Yes, this meant I had to go to the vet. I got to see Dr. Rebecca this time...she's very nice and fortunately I didn't get that thing stuck up my butt. But they did poke something in my ear and that's how they could tell it was ANGRY. So 7 days of this! YUCK!!!! (Ruby's Mom: 7 days of drops which trust me, hurt me more than they hurt you! Ruby: Oh, Mom!!!). Fortunately, I'm not shaking my head as much anymore, so I think it is getting better. I think that is how my Mom figured out I had an ANGRY EAR...I kept shaking my head. Actually, I think she was concerned I would shake so hard my brains would fall out...silly Mom, my brains are much too BIG to do that!!!
Can you see my right ear is a little droopy and not as perky as normal??? Can you? That's because my ear is ANGRY! Yeah, I know I have kinda floppy ears to begin with, but this is just not normal floppy!!!

Oh ruby we hope your ear gets happy again soon.

Stanley said... 10:43 AM

Ruby Bug!

Congratulations, girlie! You and Luckie deserve being featured blog(s).

Sorry about the ear anger. They seem to get a little angrier when you first start using the drops before they start to cool off. Just tell your ear to simmerdownnow! You have a commanding presence - the ear will listen, if it knows what's good for it.

Extra goober kisses to you (they have healing properties),
Your Stanny

Stanley said... 10:44 AM


Forgot to tell you congratulations for your Koi namesake at Butchy & Snickers' house. I already have a photo of my little fella up on my blog, I'm SO proud. Think our Kois will be friends?

Goob kiss,

Tadpole said... 12:29 PM

Oooh, angry body part are SO NOT FUN! Poop on them! (that's just an expression... it probably wouldn't really help to literally poop on them....) I'm glad you aren't shaking your brains around quite as much. Of course they wouldn't FALL OUT, but we don't want them scrambled either, you know.

CONGRATS on the Featured Blog!!! Woot!

Suki & Joey said... 12:34 PM

Puggy kisses

Hi, Ruby.
Congratulations again!
I am so sorry to know about your angry ear! That is not fun. That infection thing has happen to me 2 or 3 times so my mom has to clean my ears every other day and I don't like it! But at least is better than having angry ears!
Take care

We (actually I mean me)could come whisper sweet nothings in your other ear so at least that one would be happy!!

Rubyyyyyy!!! We're all so sorry about that angry ear of yours! Tell your momma to give you a little cream cheese before she gives you the drops... you MIGHT not mind as much.

Keep being a good girlie too!

Linda and the wonder dogs!
