Brother can you spare a dollar?

Thursday, November 08, 2007

So, I'm kinda in trouble. I'm not exactly sure why. Here's my rule...if it isn't put away from prying puppy paws, it's fair game. Seems like a pretty straight forward rule, right? Well I guess not...

I guess you are not supposed to eat this stuff. It's kind of like the magic plastic card that buys me toys and treats. It sure tasted good. And in the Ruby Rulebook it was left just laying on the nightstand by the bed which I totally have access to. So hello...fair's mine...snackie time!

Now my Mom is telling me not only do I have to pay her back, but that it is a Federal offense and I could be going to prison!!!
"Whoever mutilates, cuts, defaces, disfigures, or perforates, or unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking association, or Federal Reserve bank, or the Federal Reserve System, with intent to render such bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt unfit to be reissued, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both."
OMD...what am I going to do? I don't want to go to prison...unless it's like the Wag, which really isn't a prison (I just say it is because anytime I can't be with my Mom feels like prison to me...or at least what I would imagine it would be). If I would have known that eating this stuff would cause so much grief I wouldn't have done it. Plus, how am I going to pay Mom back? I don't have a job and although I have achieved a certain amount of fame (in no small part because of all of you pups and hammies and nannies who read my blog) I have not achieved the fortune to go along with the fame. Help!!!!

At least it was only one Dollar Ruby! I don't think anyone who saw your pretty face could throw you into prison.

Ruby, Ruby, Ruby....
Can you imagine what your Mom would do, if you snacked on a $20.00???

Clover said... 8:37 AM

Oh no, Ruby! I am worried, you can't go to prison!! I am going to ask my mom to send you a loonie. It's worth more than an American dollar right now, so I hope it helps!
Love Clover xo

OMDog Ruby! That's just like the time The Mom was eating pizza on the floor and I helped myself because, well everything on the floor is mine, right? And *I* got in trouble!!!

That's so not fair! The Mom works for lawyers....they'll totally defend you! We won't let you go to jail!

SAVE RUBY!!!!!!!!!!!

Holy crap, Ruby! If you end up in jail and the other inmates find out your a Boston TERRORIST, they are gonna be EXTRA hard on you.

Here's what you should do...file your teeth and nails down NOW so it can never be proved in a court of law that you had anything to do with this.

The dollar is in the mail to you, this way you don't owe Mom. Don't worry your not going to jail, ask mom if she remembers when A.D. ate a couple of twenty's that were on the dining room table.

We will bail you out if that happens

Hugs & bellyrubs

you know what Ruby, if you have to go to prison so does my Mom because she always ruins money sticking it in the clothes washer. So you can get belly rubs from her!

Count ME in for Suki's PAWTY! Can't wait!!!!!

We think you could claim entrapment -- your Mom left it, knowing what dogs do -- and you did. That's entrapment.

On another subject, we really miss your coming round to visit. We know that running an airline isn't easy, but we always looked forward to seeing your pretty face (and exchanging smart ass comments...).

I'm sure glad it was only a dollar! I hope you don't go to prison!


Jessica said... 4:47 PM

We don't see what the big deal is. All your Mom has to do is put a little tape on that dollar and it will be as good as new.

Love, Seadra and Zoe

HA! It could be worse. Our friend Caffrey ate a $50 gift card to Best Buy. She was in the slammer for quite a while though.

Emily and Ike said... 7:33 PM

Goofy said... 11:08 PM

Girl Girl Hamster said... 11:28 PM

Oh dear.. I dont think you'll get reported to the police. Can you glue back that note?

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said... 2:21 AM

oooops! You could always plead "insanity" I guess, though you are so intelligent you probably wouldn't get away with that excuse!

hmmmmm! Why don't you sneak away in Air Ruby and come and hang out with me for a wee while until the whole situation has cooled down.

I will protect you from the law!

Love and licks, Marvin xxxxxx
pee ess I once ate my one of my Pa's silk ties once, well not eactly ate it, sorta chewed it up a bit like you did with the note there!

Katherine and Pippa said... 5:01 AM

Seems like a silly law to me. Mind you, I don't know why you want to eat paper. Plastic is much tastier I think.


Suki & Joey said... 5:26 AM

Better to eat a dollar than swallow a bunch of coins, right? That would have been REALLY bad and would have cost your Mom a ton of money at the vet! Soooo...I guess she should be happy you ate the dollar, right? heehee!

Don't worry, Ruby, if you go to prison, I'll bust you out. I'm a pawsome digger and I could dig a tunnel for you or something ;)

Puggy kisses

Oh, wow. How was it? Our great Aunt Jackie Blue, the first Sibe our mom ever knew and loved, ate a $100 someone sent her parents as a gift one year. Ha roo roo roo! Wonder if different denominations taste different?

Amber-Mae said... 8:59 AM

Oh-oooooh...But luckily it was just a dollar not 50 or 100 dollars! I would have been murdered if I shredded a hundred dollar note.

Oh, no! Have the Feds shown up at your door yet? If you do have to go to prison, I'll bake you a cake with a file in it...I promise!

The Brat Pack said... 6:14 PM

You've GOT to hide the evidence!

Don't worry, if they take you to the big house we'll form a DWB Prison Break team.


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said... 6:16 PM

Hey Ruby...How's it going,Girl? Um...prison isn't so bad. I'm getting used to it. Lacie was very unhappy in the New York prison. The shower time is limited, and there were no hairdryers for her fur. Thank dog Stan sprung us. Really lookin' forward to our flight this weekend. Make sure you have enough sausage for Seymour. Mumsie said he eats large quanities nightly. I think he wants to sit with Lola on the flight...she is coming isn't she??

Next time, hide those dollar pieces under the bed, Girl...

Stanley said... 11:29 PM

Ruby Bug!

Don't worry, girlie! Sir Iknowhowtotalktothepolice Alot (Chance) and I will definitely negotiate your release if anydog tries to take you in, or we've always got Suki and a ton of other doggies who are excellent diggers.

Just so you know, my girl would commit to visiting you everyday for Atomic Belly Rubs if you ever had to spend time in the slammer... which you WON'T!

Goober love & sympathetic smooches,
Your Stanny

Luckie Girl said... 6:49 AM

Hey Ruby,
I dunno why your Mom is kicking up such a big fuss! It could be a 100 dollar bill and it probably tastes the same to us. hhahah
