Meet Ruby

So, as it happens, we are dog sitting again! (remember Sunny, the cute Maltese Poodle that we had as a house guest back in April?)
This time, we have a beautiful 2.5 year old Boxer/Shepherd mix staying with us.  Her name is Ruby.  Ruby is VERY shy and is afraid of strangers, but if you spend some time playing with her, she can quickly warm up to you and become the most affectionate companion. She has brought us so much fun and joy in the last few days. Her family is coming home from vacation tomorrow, and I thought I would post a blog about Ruby before saying goodbye to her.

On Ruby’s first day here, after she had relaxed a bit after our first morning walk, the mailman came and dropped the mails in through our front door. This totally spooked Ruby; she ran straight inside the restroom (all the way back in the house :p) and stayed there for the entire afternoon.  Poor girl…

She was a whole lot more relaxed on the 2nd day.

We took her out to a park for a walk. She was soooo happy!!

It’s important to stay hydrated in this hot weather.  Btw, I think she looks like a fox in this photo.
