Yes Ruby is still in love with her sticks and upgraded to palm leaves. She enjoyed playing with the sticks and Palm leaves while my dad and I cleaned out our garden. She still enjoys playing with her ball but due to all the new dogs in our street I cannot go play with her out front. Now we must play in the garden and that is not so good on the grass. I also started taking her to the beach, but after a dog attacked her on one of our walks she is not very sociable. It will take a while for her to trust other dogs again… She is also very protective over me. I am not always sure if this is a good or bad thing….
I took my first photo’s of Ruby when she was approx 8 weeks old. I have posted photo’s every week till she was 29 weeks old.
One of these days Ruby will be one year old and I can’t believe how time flies. She is a beautiful grown dog now and still loves chewing on old crocks and sticks. She also makes us mad with her ball. She just loves playing outside with her tennis ball. Her training is coming along great and she is very obedient. But like any child she also takes chances and when she was naughty you can see it straight away. I love Ruby to bits and cannot imagine my day without her by my side or next to my desk.
Here are a few photo’s I took of her this morning while playing fetch with her.

Oh my word people I was suppose to post on Tuesday already but it completely slipped my mind. I think I have to much going on at once….
Ruby is a my Guard dog where ever I go in the house she is only a few steps behind. I was busy getting all my props together and making sure my cards are clean and batteries charged for my Photo Shoot at Bekkies and Boudjies Daycare the following day. Ruby slipped into my studio and was lying very quietly waiting for me. I promised her we would go play ball as soon as I am finished. When I walked towards my studio door Ruby dashed passed me wagging tail and all… We played a bit and then I got back to editing…
I did not post a Ruby Tuesday post last week. Sorry for that. My right hand is suppose to rest and I’ll rather listen to the doctor this time. I need my hand to take lovely photo’s. I took this photo of Ruby on the Sunday. She went to play outside with Buddy our long legged Fox-terrier. The problem with her going outside to Buddy is the fishpond is like a magnet… Not even one minute passes and she went for a swim…
Last Friday I took Tekkies to the doggy parlor for a haircut. When we got home Ruby was very upset with this “new” dog. She stood a few passes back and started barking at this “new” dog. It went on for nearly a hour. I laughed so hard it was so funny. As soon as I entered the room Ruby would come and stand behind me and then she really started barking. When I took them all outside Ruby realized that it was Tekkies and only then did they started playing again.
I took Ruby outside this morning to go play with her ball. Everything were just dandy till Ruby spotted the man sitting on the pavement with his trolley. Now let me explain these people with there trolleys are up to no good and they throw out our garbage bins and just leave the garbage on the ground then move on to the next one. Some of them are also spotters for the criminal elements. So I am glad that Ruby charged him. I was not afraid that Ruby will bite the man I was afraid that Ruby run after him and a car hit her. I called her back while running after her with my camera still around my neck….
Ruby is really very intelligent and she is learning very fast. She is going to be a very good guard dog and we will train her to attack on command. This of course only for our own safety and hers.
Ruby is really growing up very fast. She is also much more protective over us. When a stranger comes closer her neck hair stands up and the her tail curls upwards. She also barks at everyone and at other dogs. I know this is also just a phase she is going through. She ‘s very alert and if she hears strange noises she goes and investigate.
She is still in love with her ball. When she gets outside she goes and sit in front of the wooden box where we keep her balls and her comb. She is not yet very keen on the brushing side of things but she will play ball all day I think. What we do now is while playing ball we brush her. She is loosing allot of fur now and this means more cleaning work for me, but I don’t mind I love her to bits.
Yesterday while playing ball and taking my photo’s of Ruby for this blog post something very weird and very funny happened. Normally Ruby brings her ball straight to me so that I can throw it again. Yesterday morning she ran past me and when I looked back I just had to take photo nr 2. Sorry Ruby for intruding on your privacy….
We had lovely weather on Monday and yesterday so everybody enjoyed the spring sun and got our dose of Vitamin D for the day. My mom also came out and I went and fetch her a chair so that she can sit down when she wants to. My mom have not even touched the seat and Tekkies jumps up to sit on her lap….
Three weeks back this tree in our neighbors garden had no leaves only branches just look at it now….
Even Tammy decided that it’s better outside than indoors under her blanket….
Okay mom I can we play ball again. Stop talking to Granny and play with me please….. Even when her tongue is dragging on the floor of exhaustion she still wants to play. At this point I put away her ball so that she can play with her four legged sisters…
Yesterday was National Heritage day here in South Africa and it is also been known for the past few years as National Braai day. We went out for the day and Ruby had to stay outside and play with the other 4 legged brothers and sisters.
Last night I took these photo’s of her. She was either very upset with us for letting her stay outside the whole day or she was dead tired of all the playing…..
