Introducing...Wonder Ruby the Yarn Dog...

Yep, that's right. Has she no mercy? She can be vengeful, can't she...all because of that one little yarn 'mishap'. It wasn't expensive yarn, I was just helping and she actually just left the yarn there anyway! Anyhowl, this is what she made me...I'm a skein of yarn. It reallydoes frighten me what goes through that mind of hers. Here are a few more photos...

For those knitters out there like Dory and Maggie's Moms, my Mom said you'll appreciate the detail on the label? Yes, hand-wash, no bleach, lie flat to dry and no ironing. My Mom still giggles about this, I don't get it. Here's my favorite photo...

Think I look a little pissed-off in this? Well you'd be right. My Mom was SO excited about finishing the costume that she had to wake me up from a very lovely nap in the sun on the deck to model. Jeesh...can't a pup get a break at all?

Enough about me...now on to the REAL fun!!! The Sacramento Area Boston Terrier Social Club's (yep, I belong to a club!) monthly meetup! I haven't gone in a few months because we've been busy so not only was I excited to see all my BT friends, but it's Howl-o-Ween, and if I have to suffer in a silly costume, I need my friends to suffer too - hee hee hee!

Mom didn't get a lot of good pix because there was so much commotion going on, but here are a few...

If you can believe it, I didn't win the costume contest...no, my friend Lulu the 'Showgirl' won. Oh well, there's always next time...wait, what am I saying? Another costume??? Oh no....

You're mom really takes the costume thing seriously. I know you don't love the costume, but you do look great! Hope you don't have to weat it too many more times. Oh, and I think you should have at lease won the contest.

Your pal,

How creative, Ruby! Your costume is just adorable! I honestly think you should have won! Your mom found the PERFECT yarn!

Love ya lots,

You deserved to win, Ruby.

I mean, I know Lulu is your friend and all, but I'm sure you can dig up some photos of her behaving badly at the last meetup, right? I heard she was in the back with a couple boy BTs and a bag of kibble. Get your paws on that evidence, pronto!

Ruby! We always knew you could spin a mean yarn! When you're at the party all you had to do was click your heels together and say, I want to go home!

That jacket is fantastic matie. Sadly our pinkie is useless with knitting kneedles.

hee..hee...sorry, ruby, I know you were upset about the yarn outfit but you were so cute and made my mommy and I giggle.


Unknown said... 9:05 AM

Wow that is such a funny costume, your Mom is creative. BUT I like the last picture that expresses your disdain for that thing. I would feel the same. I have no idea what torment awaits me for halloween.

Stanley said... 10:43 AM

Ruby Bug!!

I too love your fave pic of yourself... the pissed off one. You sure can work the camera, girl.

It's very considerate of you to allow your mama to have her crazy little whims occasionally. It probably keeps her from the loony bin, and she gets cute pics of you.

If that yarn were really for sale I'd take my girl's plastic and buy the whole lot!

Sorry I've been a little scarce. We're making sissy plans and getting the house all nice & clean so she can destroy it.

Goober love,

OMD your costume is PAWSOME! That is so creative and you totally deserved to win. I think those judges were biased. Now if only my mommy would hurry up and come up with a costume for Pug-o-Weeeeen!
