Meet Ruby!

Yesterday was a long, long day, and our new dog Ruby is here!!  She and I rolled in at about 8pm, and it's almost as if she's been here forever.  When it's right, it's right ... and this looks to be a completely comfortable match for us. 



Ruby's introduction to Daniel went perfectly, and he is so happy to have another dog in the house!!  Her introduction to the cats went exactly as I anticipated.  Maggie and Alice stood their ground, and Dorothy was nowhere to be found.  Earlier this morning, Dorothy was initially skulking around the periphery ... but now she's getting a little bit more comfortable.



"It's okay, Dorothy," said Alice, in the chair, "This new dog isn't as scary as I thought it would be."



I am thrilled with the way Ruby is fitting in so far.  Granted, it's only been a little over 15 hours at this point ... but this little dog is already worming her way into our family and deep into my heart.



Welcome home, Ruby!!

  6. She is so cute!!! She reminds me a little of Misty. How old is she? And I'm so glad she is fitting in, but living with you all is every dog's dream come true!

  8. Nothing more comfy than a "perfect fit!"

    Her body language shouts... "I'm home and lovin' it!"

  9. I totally agree with Mrs. A in that Ruby's body language speaks volumes...she looks so very relaxed and knows this is where she belongs. Your sister knows you very well, doesn't she? ;)
