Ruby in October
Ruby this weekend
Ruby participated in her first dog party up at the river this weekend. She went swimming with her mom, Porsche (pictured below), her best dog-friend, Fischer, and of course her favorite people friends. After her first venture down some rapids, Ruby was a bit more cautious in her swimming for the rest of the day. I escaped with only minor scratches all over my body. (Despite Ruby's thinking, I was not an island oasis in the middle of the river). Her mom (the dog kind) was very protective and helped her out a few different times. She's looking forward to her next outing!
Ruby also spent some time relaxing out on the back porch this weekend. Here, she's trying out the new hammock I picked up in Copan.
Finally, I wanted to share a video of how obedient Ruby can be. Most of the time, she listens when we call her to come, sit, lay down, and stay. We're working on the barking at people on bikes, but she's really pretty good. She's also got an addiction to toilet paper, tissues, and napkins that we're having a hard time breaking. It's tough this week because Tom is sick, so there are hundreds of Kleenexes around the house. She just loves that wet papery feel!
