Welcome to 6-month-old Ruby.
A darling little black and tan coonhound. Isn't she just adorable? I've always been partial to the black and tans and this little one is no exception. Now, if only she were already a senior, she'd have grabbed at my heartstrings even more.
A puppy! Oh my, here we go!
Lady May has already given her the lip curl and warned her to back off. Ruby gets very excited and jumps back as quick as a wink. She's already learning 'the language' and responding very well.
|Lady May - "This is my warning face. You better be listening."|
During her meet n greet she came along with little Suzy who was quite pleased to have somebody else take the attention away from her for Ruby. We gave Ruby a safe area to play while Suzy and Lady May enjoyed the calm behind gates.
|Ruby - "Why are the other dogs gone away?"|
At her 2 hour previsit we had lil Molly and young Sage here as well.
Puppy was over the moon with so many doggie buddies to meet with. Sage was quite happy to say hello and introduced herself politely.
|Hey I think I like you. Just dont jump up okay?|
|lil Molly waiting to meet Ruby. Little Suzy happy someone else will play with the puppy.|
lil Molly was her true Marchioness self. She loved Ruby and was eager to let her zip around her.
And zip around she did. Ruby is in training and still learning her recall skills. That means I can't allow her to run and zoom in the yard with the freedom of the other dogs. It's not safe. If there's an altercation I have no way of intervening quick enough. At present, much of our grounds are covered in melted snow/ice. It's just not safe to do zoomies right now. Teaching fluent recall and safe play is on her agenda. So for now indoors energy release and quiet toy play suffice.
|Why isn't that little brown dog coming in to say hi again?|
|Sage - "If I look away it means don't bug me okay?"|
|Ruby, - "I can see you sneaking you know?"|
