Ruby Tuesday: 25/26 Weeks

Hi there I am back after a lovely week in the Northern Cape. I visited a few nature reserves and took lots of photos. Unfortunately I missed week 24/25  due to my travels…

Here are some photo’s I took of Ruby while we were playing catch this afternoon. She loves playing with her ball.

Ruby Tuesday: 23/24 Weeks

Hi there, I know I am a day late but I was very busy yesterday and did not have time to post.  I did take some photo’s of her yesterday morning before I began working.

I think Ruby has stop growing for now. She is busy getting new teeth and eat allot but she is standing still. Well so it seems.

Ruby has enough energy for 4 dogs and she is really giving me allot of exercise. She has this new habit she comes and sit by me and then she starts moaning. Normally when she moans she wants to go outside to use her bathroom… Nowadays she moans and as soon as she gets outside she runs straight to the wooden box were we keep her ball.  She wants to play fetch the whole time…

The boys are studying for their exams so on their break they would go play fetch with Ruby. This works for me because now the boys also get some fresh air and some exercise.

Here are some of the photo’s of Ruby and I also throw in some of Tammy and Tekkies.

Ruby Tuesday: 22/23 Weeks

Ruby_6687 Ruby_6691 Ruby_6692 Ruby_6713 Ruby_6714Today it’s to cold outside and I don’t want to be in the wind to long. Just got over the flu and are looking forward to my holiday in two weeks time.  Today I took photo’s of Ruby on her “playpen”  (our bed). As you can see the covers I put over keeps getting darker…

The coat hanger she’s busy chewing she got the first day that she came to us. It was lying in the sun-room and I wanted to throw it away but when she started playing with it I let it be. She is still playing with it but now it is in two pieces inside the cover. The Crocks I gave her also the day when she came to us this was to prevent her from chewing our shoe’s. It is working very good so far only one incident when she took my husbands shoe to her bed but she did not chew on it, she chewed her Crock…

Ruby is still barking at everything and the latest is chasing the poor birds when they come to feed….

 

Trying out a new combination….

Usually I have my 50mm Lens on my Canon 500D but Sunday I decided to try my 50mm on my Canon 7D. WOW I thought I got great shot’s before with my Canon 500D but I must honestly say from now on I’ll switch lenses more often…

In the past I took my photo’s in Aperture Priority mode but the past two months I switch between Aperture Priority and Manual mode.  I am getting much better in Manual mode and as soon as I am confident enough I’ll shoot mainly in Manual.

Ronald was playing fetch with Ruby. I saw the opportunity to try some action photo’s in manual mode and I am happy to say I am very happy with my results. 🙂

This week you will get a double dose of Ruby… Keep a lookout for Ruby Tuesday tomorrow. 🙂

 

Ruby Tuesday: 21/22 Weeks

Ruby decided that her Ball on the Rope had to be demolished.  This morning  she was very destructive breaking everything she could get her paws on….

I had a wedding on Saturday and due to wet socks and shoes I’ve got the flue. For once Ruby did not jump on me instead she’s licks me. I have an infection in my right eye and when I am lying down I must just close my eye because she constantly wants to lick it. I went to lie down this afternoon something totally new for Ruby she just could not understand in the end she cuddled up and lay next to me.

Because I am not feeling well and I have so much editing to do before Saturday’s Matric Farewell,I did not take allot of photo’s

Good day everyone,

Here in Cape Town it’s raining cats and dogs.  Ruby loves the water pools and keep asking me to go outside.  This morning she dropped her stick in a pool of water and she wanted to get it out of the water.  In the end everybody was wet, myself , Tammy our miniature Dutch hound and Tekkies our miniature Sheep dog. Ruby got her stick and headed for her bed…

Over the weekend Ruby got a bit confused with the public holiday and hubby laying in later for 3 days in a row. She is used to her cuddle time every morning when hubby leaves for work. So Sunday morning she tricked him to go to the kitchen and feed her she turned around and came jumping on the bed got into her cuddle position and did not budge when hubby came back…. I love our cuddle times also she lies with her head on my arm and her paw in my hand….

Yesterday Ruby went to the Vet for her injections and to get chipped.  Everything is 100% and she growing up so fast.

Ruby Tuesday: 18/19 Weeks

Hi everyone,

I cannot believe how time flies by. Ruby is growing up fast now and started taking things from the counter tops and tables. Now to get her to stop it.

For a few weeks she has been very naughty leaving us surprises in the house, we gave her a “hiding” with a rolled up newspaper. This seemed to work because she is coming to me again and asking me to go outside. Shame it I take to long she’ll stand up against me and moan then she’ll start running towards the garage door.

Sometimes she also asks me to go out but then she just runs around in circles. The next few days the weather is going to play along so we can go for walks in the mornings.

Here are some photo’s I took today on one of our visit’s outside…

Ruby Tuesday: 17/18 Weeks

Ruby is really growing up fast and she is also very busy. We need to walk with her more often but the weather is not always playing along.

This morning it was raining again so I took some photo’s of her in her bed that’s getting to small and of course on our bed.

It’s a struggle everyday to make our bed and I have to throw an extra comforter over to ensure our bedding stays clean. When I am trying to make the bed she starts bringing all her “toys” a coke bottle, a piece of wood, an old shoe and her ball. I then start throwing everything on the ground I have hardly started and she’s back on the bed.  This morning  I ignored her and she picked up her ball threw it on the ground jumped off the bed picked it up and jumped back on the bed then she barked at me.

The day I first came to live at my new family my new mommy gave me this old crock of her’s. It’s my favorite chew toy…

She knows when she did wrong because she disappears when you call her. Normally we’ll find her under the bed.

She barks allot these days and sometimes the hair on her neck stands up. When she see herself in the mirror she would stand and bark at herself  till I pat her and then she’ll calm down.

It’s winter here in Cape Town and there is always wood and logs lying around the fire place. Ruby loves this chew toys. As soon as you take it away from her she’ll get up and go get another one. I permanently have wood on our bed.

Today I realized that Ruby loves the camera. She poses so nicely for her human Mommy… Love her to bits….

Ruby Tuesday: 15/16 Weeks

Ruby_3197The past 10 days I was on bed rest and this morning I had a photo shoot. I was exhausted and only realized it’s Tuesday a bit late. So I took photo’s of Ruby in her corner of the kitchen. When I am busy in the kitchen this is her spot.  She went to the Vet yesterday and they are very happy with Ruby’s health.  With her next visit she is getting her chip.

Here is a few more photo’s of Ruby in her little corner…
