Ruby Slide

The power of the sport setting on the camera – the rapid pictures that tell a story.  My goal here was to get a picture of Ruby’s unique sitting style, but coupled with a wood floor, we captured a “slippery” moment.

And roll

I meant to do that

P.S. – Happy birthday to Steve and Kat.  Go visit them and wish them the happiest of birthdays!

    Juno has a similar style. We call it the “low cal platz.” (Platz is german for “down”) Juno’s very good at conserving calories so she won’t spend them actually working to go to a platz. instead, she lets gravity do the job thereby expending as few calories as possible! Way to go Ruby!

    I see nothing wrong with the way Ruby is sitting. I sit like that all the time.

    The slide and roll though, I don’t do that.

    I do that too! Eva doesn’t because she refuses to sit on the wood floors. She even scurries from rug island to rug island.

    You get a ten with those moves! And now I’m ready to crash…

    Ha.. Ruby that looks like the dance.. the electric slide. I see your humans are easily entertained. Give them a beer and look.. sliding entertains them.

    Thanks for the birthday wishes!

    I sit on my hip like that, but I don’t slide. Steve is the slider in our family. I am the roll-over-and-show-my-tummy girl though. It looks like Ruby has it all in one cute, furry package!

    Ruby looks very stylish. And I know she meant it.

    That was quite the slide! I’m always slippin’ around on our floors too. It’s rather embarrassing actually.

    I hope you all have a grrrrEAT day!

    Why of course it was planned and planned PURRfectly if we may say so. Now how ’bout showin’ us a down☺

  13. Khyra on October 14, 2009 at 11:12 am

    Woo know Rusty told her to do that to make woo laugh!

    I’m still worried that she isn’t khomfy and khozy enough in her new environment – I mean she looks so tense anxious afraid concerned and certainly unloved 😉

    Tank woo again to The Thundering Herd Annex fur saving another one of us!

    Woodrow does that too – and i really do think he means too – he sits and lets gravity do the rest

    Obviously this was completely intentional!

  16. Kira on October 14, 2009 at 9:38 am

    Wooos! Poor Ruby! Are they making fun of your sit? I like to sit like that too, so it is ok with me, just start learning some evil expressions from Queen Natasha and they won’t make fun of you anymore!

  17. Storm on October 14, 2009 at 9:36 am

    That is hilarious!! Her expression in the last picture is priceless!!

  18. Maxx on October 14, 2009 at 9:17 am

    Now that’s sliding sibe-style! Pawesome!
    Thanks for sharing your day with us!

    Cheers,

    Don’t worry Ruby, I knew that you ‘meant’ to do that! My dogs always mean to also! What a beautiful dog you are.

  20. The OP Pack on October 14, 2009 at 8:15 am

    Nothing better than a planned trick on the HuUncle.

    woos, the OP Pack

  21. Stella on October 14, 2009 at 3:41 am

    Of course, she did. Meant to do just exactly that, a quick sit to a nice lie down. And what a good job she does of her novel technique!

    I’m gonna try that!

    Kisses,
    Stella
