Tiny Tails

Friday, November 16, 2007

So, I had a sit down with Mom. And yes, she admitted that she is cheating on me, but she doesn't call it that, she's calling it a f*a*v*o*r whatever THAT is. She said that Miss Cindy asked her real nicely to help her out because Miss Cindy couldn't teach the class AND train Gypsy at the same time. Plus, Miss Cindy thinks Mom did such a great job training me (with Miss Cindy's help of course) that she couldn't think of anyone better to help her out with Gypsy. Who Miss Cindy should be asking to help with Gypsy is ME! Let's face it, I'm the one who trained my Mom - HELLO!!!

Mom apologized for not telling me, and that I am TOTALLY dog enough for her. I guess she's just being nice and I love Miss Cindy, so all is good. Do you think I'm going too easy on her???

Now about my tail...or should I say lack there of! All my friends are posting about their tails and they have GREAT tails...here's what I've got...

A Tiny Tail!!! A nub...and itty bitty nubbin of a tail!

And just in case you didn't see it in the first picture because it was so tiny...here it is again...
Oh sure the picture is big, but trust me, the tail is tiny. So what can my tiny tail do? Well it kinda wags...real fast in fact but Mom never seems to catch it on camera. Oh and my tiny tail also does a great job of covering up my private parts, which I guess is good. But sometimes I wish I had a great big giant tail to chase...it's really hard to chase a tiny tail, you know. OK, here's one last look...
OK, maybe one more...
Let's see some other tails...like maybe some puggy tails which I love because they are so fun and curly. Hope all you pups, hammies and coyotes have a great weekend! Oh, and happy barkday Opy!!!

Don't worry Ruby, they may cheat on us but they know what they've got at home is better and they always come crawling back.


ps. Your tail ROCKS!

We love your nubby tail, Ruby! As long as it wags because you're happy, it doesn't matter much about length, does it!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

I like your tail, Ruby! It's cute! And you don't have to worry about it getting stuck in a door and bitten off by another dog or something.

I'd love to post about my tail, but Joey has a much nicer tail than I do, actually. Maybe I'll let him do it ;)

Aw Ruby, you have a very nice little stump. I'm a teensy bit jealous that young Cassidy has a nice curly tail when mine is docked.

Toodle pip,

Ruby Bug!

First off, don't fret about me and Wally. We're not having some torrid affaire, we're buds and we love each other (I give friendly smooches to any and all dogs I like regardless of gender).

Your tail is PERFECT! I don't care about size. And, Asta is right. I noticed right away that your hair looks so sleek & silky & shines in the sunlight! What do you use?

I guess your mama is the next best thing to help train Gypsy, if for some reason you are not available. Keep us posted!

Goober love & smooches,

Rubyloo! You're so busy flying around the world that someone had to train Gypsy, I suppose. Sounds like your mom is just helping you out with that one, but you should still totally guilt her for extra treats.

Oh, and you know what's cool about tiny tails? They never get caught in doors or grabbed by puppies, and when doggies with tiny tails wag, their hole back end goes wiggle, wiggle. My mom thinks that's adorable.

Love licks,

Your little tail is sooooo cute and when you wag it your butt wiggles.

Are you and Mom coming to Auntie Joey's house for Turkey Day?

Love, hugs and belly rubs

I think you should go easy on your Mom!

Tanner has a super tiny nubby tail like yours but he can rarely get it wagging. I have a weird L shaped tail that is missing hair in one spot. Bizarre I tell ya!

Yours is CUTE?!

Hi Ruby, we're glad to see you posting about your tail. all tails are good, no matter now long they are (Brody) or how short (Benson). we have all different tails and they all get along together. that is the lesson.

Oh so sad to have had your tail chopped off - but it seems like you make the most of what is left.
