As we mentioned yesterday, we were looking for a home for a sweet little lady that we met last week at Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation. Last Saturday, we were driving through town and noticed that Sarge’s was having an adoption fair. We glanced over and this beautiful red-head was sitting there looking at us. We did a quick u-turn and spent some time with her. Isn’t she just precious?
Now you might notice that she is wearing a brand new seatbelt and collar. Why? Because she is in her very first car ride with her new parents – and brother. Yes, Khyra guessed correctly. Our little girl is our new cousin and will be living with Tartok!
Everyone had met last weekend, but we did another introductory walk in our city park today. Here the little girl is getting to meet the entire Herd. No shyness about her and she is not intimidated by that many Sibes.
And after a long walk, we went back to the car and got some fresh water. Despite all of the excitement, it is hard to keep the eyes open, isn’t it?
One last thing we need. A name. We have tried many (Khyra, your suggestion of Tartok backwards – Kotrat – we decided to skip on. But thanks for the suggestion). Her shelter name was Lilly, but that is not going to be the permanent name. Last night, we were playing with Ruby Red. Ruby is an aunt who passed away many years ago, but was always a very colorful character. So the name seems to fit. But before we are final, any suggestions?

Undercarriage Dog Wash
Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
We are late to the party but we really think that Ruby is a perfect name for her!! Looks like she fits right in with the Herd and her new home with Tartok. What an awesome happy ending!!
WOOOO woo rar rar rar,
Kayla and Maebe
I love stories with happy endings. What a gorgeous dog!
congrats on the new cousin – we are so happy she found a wnderful home
no ideas on her name – but we do like ruby

You can call her Ruby Red because for me it is a good name.
I dare not suggest a name – but it’s fun following the decision process. 🙂
She is beautiful! I’m so glad she has found an awesome home!!! 🙂
Ruby Red is a great name!
Ruby Red is a pretty good name. She is really beautiful. I’m so glad Tartok has a sister and Ruby has a new home.
Will Cheoah still get to go over and play with Tartok?
I’m so bad with names lol. I do like Ruby though. One of my former co-workers named her cat Kahlua and her new kitten is Quila (as in tequila). I thought it was funny naming them after alcoholic beverages (not much of a drinker myself so had never heard of Kahlua before). Anyway just a suggestion. 🙂
Wooos! I like the name Ruby! She is a real gem, what a beauty, I think I a going to have competition….

Hi DK! so awesome you rescued her. I think it’s Ruby. I just love that name. or maybe a russian translation Ruby to go with Tartok? she’s so beautiful. those eyes…. damn sibes get me every time. i’m so glad i only have 1. if i had more, i’d be insane. 😉
Hey, so I’m out of inernet access for a few days (sorry i can’t comment on past few days blog postings)… my ISP is gone kaplunk and I won’t have my wi-fi system set up til tuesday. so for now, limited blogage postings to friends… but i have a quick question if you can email me off line. what seat belts do you use? i need a seat belt harness for my mini cooper for both dogs. the harness i did get must be “stepped into” by 2 front paws and Loki really hates it and it’s hard to put on. other regular harnesses we’ve had in the past slipped over the head, went across the chest and undert the belly behind front legs and had quick release buckles that buckled on the side body or the back. i’m looking for something like that…not something they have to “step feet” into…it’s a nightmare. any suggestions? email me if you can! i can get/send email just fine but can’t browse easily.
Wild Dingo & co.
We think “Sakari” (sweet) or “Shila” (flame) or “Sura” (new life)
But whatever she is named, she is very bewooootiful!
My Mom has some Russian blood and she likes the name Duscha, meaning sweetheart or soul. A second choice might be Anitchka, a form of Anna. Alena is a form of Helen.
But we both like Duscha best! The dog is beautiful and I am happy she has a great new home!
That is SO COLL!
I like the name Ruby Red. As in Ruby Red Slippers. Ha roo roo roo!
Ammy said it’s very fitting, as this girl is a gem of a Sibe!
Whatever you decide to call her, we’re just glad she’s calling herself HOME.
Congrats on your new cousin – and welcome home, beautiful girl!
Congrats on your new cousin, she sure is a beauty! I love Ruby as a name, but I also like Stella… (but it could be cause that’s my mom’s fave beer…! BOL!)
She is gorgeous, and it sounds like she has a golden spirit. I love dog stories with happy endings.
She really must be confident and relaxed if she’s already able to be sleepy with the herd around!
Congrats on yyour new cousin – she made a great choice of families. She is a beauty – how about Belle? We do like Ruby Red as well.
I kinda figured the pawtential name wouldn’t work!
Ruby is good;
Tawny has some pawtential to stay with the T naming khonvention!
BUT, whatever it is she ends up being khalled, KHONGRATS!
AND khudos fur saving another!
I think it should be something that starts with T, to match Tartok. Other than that, I have no suggestions, aside from Stella 🙂
