Sunday Snapshot ... Ruby Week 3

It has been a total delight watching Ruby's personality emerge.  We knew when we got her that she is a sweet, friendly dog ... and this is still very much the case, but now she is so much more.  Over the past week, she is showing how much she loves to play in the yard. 

At first, she was a bit unsure of her surroundings, and she figured that her job was to be stuck securely beside me no matter what.  She would trot off to investigate her yard, but ignored any attempt to play ball.  This week, with a little inspiration from Daniel (who loves chasing balls but hardly ever brings them back), Ruby is becoming a champion tennis ball retriever.

This photo above is a very happy, very tired doggie ... who chased that tennis ball till my throwing arm gave out.  Good girl, Ruby!!

Happy Sunday, Everyone!
