Friday, Saturday, Sunday & Monday

I got a package in the mail on Friday.

It was a new harness. Mom has bought me this EzyDog harness since I was a puppy. This is my 3rd one. Mom likes it because it doesn't interfere with the big bone in my chest like some harnessess. It comes with a nice chest plate & a seatbelt attachment. It also has reflectors so I can be seen at night.

Here I am sporting my new harness. Mom got brown because she thought it would blend in with my fur & not be so noticeable.

On Saturday, mom & I went to Roseview to visit the residents. I received my name tag.

Here I am sporting my new name tag. Brutus says hello.

We also went to my obedience class. We missed last week because of my injury. We learnt how to go shopping & sit in a cafe in Paris. It was fun. Mom had to fill a shopping bag with stuff from different grocers. At every site I had to either do a sit stay or down stay while mom picked out groceries & paid for them. We also had to down stay while mom had coffee at an outdoor cafe. Mom also learnt some great stretches for dog backs that I should do before I go for a walk or to the dog park.

On Sunday we spent the whole day doing yard work. Mom raked while I played nicely in the back yard. This is all the bags she raked.

Mom still has to rake at least one more time after this tree drops its leaves.

Today marks the 2 week anniversay of my back injury. The vet said I could slowly start getting back to normal if I didn't show any signs of lameness. Mom thinks I'm ok. She let me run a bit in the yard. How great it feels to run again.

I found this stick while running. I had to stop & chew for awhile.

This came for me in the mail today. It says its time for my annual shots. Ouch.

Love Ruby

That is a really neat harness!

You look very professional with your name tag on! I bet those lucky people just love you lots!

We are glad that you back is getting better. That is really neat that you can do stretches to help your back before a walk.

Sorry to hear about the shots though.

Yay, Ruby! I'm so glad your back is feeling better and you are getting to run in the yard a bit!

That's a fancy harness! You look beWROOtiful in it!

Congrats on being a therapy dog! You have done so well for such a young dog! I think I would like to be a therapy dog someday.

Your obedience class sounds really fun. We never had things like that when I took classes. I'll have to talk to Mary, our trainer, about that. She likes new ideas.

I had to go for shots not very long ago. But I got cheese, so it worked out.

I'm glad you come to my bloggie! I really like yours, too. Thanks for finding me, Ruby!

Brown dog kisses,

We are glad your back is feeling better!! Pretty soon you will be running everywhere!!

Did you jump in those leaves when your mom raked them??

Hi, Ruby!
I had never seen those harnesses.
I can see you had very busy days.
It makes me so happy to know you feel well now! Take it easy, ok?
Good luck at the vet!

Glad your finally able to play a little.

Hi Ruby!
Your new harness looks great! It suits your hair color. I sometimes go to a cafe and sit there. But I cannot go shopping. Good luck your work! Hugs you!!!

You're one of the coolest pal, Ruby!
You have cool harness too and cool volunteer work!
My mom said she wanted to clone you, she meant I was useless, hehe!
And you're so clever!
I have to admit I kinda stuck after "dating".
I loved it, darling and delicious, yeah, I want to bite her, Ruby!
Many brains is still better than one, hehe!
