Ruby's Perspective ... Going to the Doctor with Daniel

Hi, Everybody.  Ruby here.

Daniel had an appointment with his cancer doctor today.  Mom took me with them because no one else was at home to watch me, and she didn't want me to be in my crate for such a long time.  (She's a really good Mom and she loves me very much ... I'm glad I picked her.)

I like Daniel's doctor.  She hugged with me and scratched my ears and told me that I will be a wonderful therapy dog.  Then she told Mom that Daniel is doing even better than he was when she saw him three weeks ago.  That made Mom happy.  I like it when Mom is happy.
Daniel had to go to the "back" (wherever that is) so he could get his special medicine.  The doctor said that he was getting a meatball ... I like meatballs, but I don't need the special medicine so I can't have one.  While Daniel was gone, Mom and I sat on the floor and waited.
When we left the doctor, Mom told us that she was going to have lunch with her friend Deborah, and that she was going to leave us in the car for a little while.  She also told us that she would take us to get a special treat when she got back.  (Daniel gets treats whenever he goes to the doctor ... he tries to hide it, but I can tell because I can smell it on his breath when he comes home.)
Our next stop was a place called The Drive Through.  Mom told the man in the little box that she wanted "a double cheeseburger plain, please".  Mom broke the cheeseburger into little pieces and she took turns giving some to Daniel and some to me.  This was the first time I ever tasted cheeseburger, and I really like it!
It was a long day for us.  There was a lot of traffic on the highway, and it took us longer than it normally would to get home.  I didn't mind, though, because Mom and Daniel and I got to spend more time together riding in the car on a beautiful sunny day.  I like riding in the car.


  1. Ruby you are one good sister! You helped Daniel get his medicine and goodies and you were a good companion to your Mom! Oh and I love cheeseburgers also! Hugs, Linda

  2. It sounds like you did real good going along to Daniel's appointment and it was more fun for you than staying home alone. Cheeseburgers, yum.

  3. Ohmyword... look at that traffic! I don't think I would like that, no matter what kind of weather.

    Glad it was a good day and that Daniel is doing so well!

  4. Hi Ruby, Thanks for the good news about Daniel! You did pick a great Mom. We love her too. Scratches, Anne

  5. What a sweet time you all had. YAY for burgers at the Drive Through!! They rock.

  6. Hey Ruby! Glad you had a great day out with your mum and Daniel. Frankie and Bobby love cheeseburgers from the Drive Through as well.
    I think you're a good and very beautiful girl, and I'm glad your mum picked you too!

  7. LOVE this story from Ruby's point of view. You have a remarkable, compassionate spirit AND you're talented. Gosh!!

  8. You and Daniel are sure lucky pups to get cheeseburgers for a special treat! And you deserved it. You were so patient and helpful during Daniel's doctor visit.


  10. Ruby is patient and sweet and I'm sure Daniel was happy to have her there for moral support.

  11. A beautiful tale of hope, courage and love, Connie.

  12. Ruby had a nice day and did a good thing. I used to stop at McDonald's on they way home from the vet too. Both dogs got a single, no fixings.

  13. Sweet post. George has to stay home when we go to the cancer doctor too. xo
