Mom and I (or I should say Mom) has been kind of lazy posting about this meme. First I was tagged by by boyfriend Mack, than my puggy pal Clover. I think I'm probably the last pup to do this, but if you haven't give it a whirl...oh and Mom is going to play too!

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?
Mom: Working at a start-up in Silicon Valley.
Me: 10 years ago is a really long time, like a billion years ago. I wasn't borned yet.

2. Five Things on my to-do list today.
Mom: Sit in on boring conference calls at work, buy special presents for Kelly's boys, figure out how to squeeze a week's worth of work into 2 days, vacuum, help Ruby post on her blog about this meme.
Me: sleep, pee, poop, eat, play fetch, chew on my bully stick, walk my Mom. Wow...that's more than 5, I'm a busy pup!!!

3. Three snacks I enjoy.
Mom: Fruit, brownie bites, cheese
Me: Mom's salmon cookies, wallymelon, blackberries

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire.
Mom: Pay off all my bills, buy a house, quit working and open a yarn shop, give lots of $$$ to animal rescue
Me: I wouldn't change my life...except maybe I'd help Mom donate $$$ to animal rescue. Oh and maybe ask for a brother or sister.

5. Three of my bad habits.
Mom: Procrastination, over-analyzing/over-thinking, worrying. (Same as Clover's mom)
Me: I have no bad habits (Ruby's Mom: HA!) Seriously, I don't have a one, not a lick, nada, nothing. I think probably you all agree, right? (Ruby's Mom: HA!)

6. Five places I have lived.
Mom: Newark, NJ; Plainsboro, NJ (Near Princeton U); Campbell, CA; San Jose, CA; Fair Oaks, CA (near Sacramento)
Me: Missouri (where I was borned), Fair Oaks...that's it. Hey Mom, I need to move some more don't you think?

7. Five jobs I have had.
Mom: Ice cream scooper (in high school), file clerk in doctor's office (college), sales engineer, project manager, web development manager
Me: expert napper, expert runner, snackie eater, stuffy destroyer, blogger

Now THAT was fun!!! So something even more fun is that Mom has the next 5 days off - W00t!!! She's been working so hard, I'm so glad that she's getting some time off. We'll be going to the park and hanging out with Auntie Kelly and her people pups...I can't wait!

Don't forget about Sophie & Dixie's barkday pawty...Aire Ruby is still taking reservations. Oh and make sure you check out Lenny's blog...he's organizing a's gonna be pawsome!!!

Ruby, I agree with your answer to #6...tell your Mom you need to move to Portland ASAP! I need a fellow diva to go shopping with, watch Sex and the City with, get manis and pedis with, etc. etc.

Hi Ruby!
I like your answers on the meme! I am sure you don't have any bad habits... I don't know why your mom was saying "HA!" ...
Have a fun time with your mom on her days off!!
Love Clover xo

I enjoyed reading this tag... I don't think you have any bad habits, either. And neither do I! It's just the humans that "think" the things we do are bad. Ha!


Petra said... 12:19 PM

Thanks for the reminder about the party, Ruby. Please reserve my spot and can I have an aisle seat this time?

Your mom has lived in lots of places; I would be very mixed up if I had to move that often.

Yea for wallymelon, one of my favorites!

P.S. I think Ruby Red nails sounds pawsome!

Hello There.
I have fun reading your blog.
Let me just share something.
My friend told me about this mini course in training a Miniature Pinscher, and it was great!

I highly recommend this mini course training.

Hey Ruby! I'm just catching up on all your posts the past few weeks. It looks like you've been having a lot of fun! (And actually, I think I am the last dog to do the meme...I have to get on that!) Thanks for the Paw-Limpics shout-out!

Your friend, Lenny

Ooooh. It was fun to learn about you AND your mom. We had blueberries and wallymelon for breakfast! I shoulda invited you's a long way, though even if you are an expert runner.

Ruby Bug!

Tell your mama I'm glad she answered the questions too, since I don't feel like I know like I want to. She's led a fascinating life, as have YOU, girlie.

Ice cream scooper huh? Mmmmm. Ice cream....

Goober love & smooches,
