I am the great huntress!

Thursday, September 04, 2008

First off, thanks for the well wishes! I am feeling much better and milking all the 'bland diet' stuff for as long as possible - W00t!

OK, so after Mom and I watched that old dude give that boring speech, we went outside to hang out. I think Mom was checking the 'squishy-ness' factor again, but whatever. We were just about to go inside when we were attacked by this ginormous dragonfly. I mean it was HUGE...like the size of an eagle or something. Mom was totally freaking out...I mean squealing like a little people pup! She was trying to get us inside but guess who followed us in? Yup that extra-extra-extra large dragonfly!!! OMD!!!!

You know me, I'm there to protect and serve, right? So I'm trying to get that evil dragonfly away from my Mom and it's buzzing all around the room and I finally catch it!!! W00t!!! Than Mom freaked out even more and tried to distract me to get that silly fly away from me and so it escaped and flew right out of my mouth!!! Dratz!!!! Mom opens the door to get it out but I'm determined to finish off that gigantic-evil thing and I follow it outside. I don't think Mom was too happy.

So I'm chasing the evil monster-sized dragonfly, which I have partially maimed with my great hunting skills and I catch it again. W00t!!! So like a good girl, I come running back into the house to show my Mom how brave I am and recieve the much due accolades of my great battle. But for some reason, my Mom is not impressed...I just don't get it! I saved the woman for dogs sake!!!

Anyhowl, I retreat to my hiding place (under the big bed) and try to feast on the spoils of my great battle. Again my squealing-wimpy girlie-Mom is totally freaking out and has to crawl under the big bed with a broom to separate me and my bug!!! The horror!!! Finally Mom shoes the dragonfly out the door and you know what...I don't even get a thank you for saving her life!!! The nerve!!! All I hear is that I better go brush my teethies because she doesn't want any bug breath near her...how ungrateful is that?!?!?! I bet she is just jellyfish of what a great huntress I am and she's just a wimpy, wimp, wimp who needs a broom for protection!!!

Oh and because Mom was soooooo scared, she didn't even get a picture of me in battle protecting her, but here is what the evil dragonfly looked like:
Scary, huh? This guy really would have looked lovely mounted over our fireplace!!!

Oh, the things we do to save our hoomans from danger but in the end, all we get is, "You've been a notty dog!" or, "What were you thinking?" or, "That thing is dangerous!" Like duuuhhh! That's why we're protecting you from it! Sheesh!

you human is just ungrateful, i mean.. you saved her from a dragonfly the size of an eagle (and looking at that photo I am pretty sure you are not egg-zagerating) and all you get is told to brush your fangs?

Jeeze, next time let it take her to its nest and feed her to its giant babies or something!

I'm very impressed by your hunting skills, and your Mom should be too!

Glad to hear you are feeling better

Oh my dogness, I can just see that dragonfly mounted above your fireplace with your picture beside it, Ruby! What a lost opportunity.

Too bad there wasn't a video of this whole adventure. I would love to see your mom crawling under the bed with the broom! That sounds like something Motch would do.

You are a fearless, selfless defender of the human race, and I'm proud of you, girl.

Holy crap! Dragonflies sort of creep me out. I would have needed protecting, too!

I just knew my Ruby was a fierce, brave huntress, willing to risk life and limb for her mom. Ruby I am so proud of you!!

Who needs a broom when Wonder Ruby's in da house?????

WHOOOOOOOOA!!!!!!!!! Rubes! That is totally unbelievable!!! That is beyond description, my dear girl!

I tried to do that to a sick-kay-dug the other night, but Leah was too quick for me... I was yanked away from that thing before I could get a proper CRUNCH on his fat little body. Humans are such party poopers. And inexplicably ungrateful, on top of it.

Ms Wonder Ruby, you should have been at my house to save my necky-neck-neck from the nasty bug who bit me!

I get "lovely MANLY humps" at the vet's too.... Evil people.

Hi, Ruby!
You did a great job with that dragonfly. Too bad your mom did not appreciate it!
It will not be framed but at least you have the picture!
Kisses and hugs

Sometimes that hoomans have no understanding of what it is to be a terrier.

Charlie Daniels said... 5:50 AM

It looks like an alien from some strange world! You did a great job.



Joe Stains said... 12:55 PM

You are SO incredibly brave!!! I commend you for your efforts even if your Mom was less than impressed!

Molly the Airedale said... 2:53 PM

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

I don't get it. You totally saved mom from that dragonfly and you don't even get to eat it later? Touch break, little Ruby.
