Ruby’s Chair

Over at The Thundering Herd Annex (our hu-grandparents house), Tartok was always the angelic Siberian that never gets onto furniture.  Ruby has no such inhibition.  In fact, she has claimed a blue arm chair in the den as her personal chair.  Just one problem.  Not all of the humans respect that that is HER chair.  Not even our hu-dad.

Hey, dude.  Ear scratches, excellent.  Sitting in my chair, bad.

Since it is my chair, guess that means I will just have to sit on you.

Am I making myself clear?

    No disrespect to Tartok, but I’m really glad the Thundering Herd Annex finally got a real Siberian.

    Having only had the experience of ONE sibe, I’ve never known one to be cuddly. sooooo… take it while you can! I’d be sitting in ruby’s chair every day if she sat and cuddled with me!

    It’s so rude of the human man to steal Ruby’s chair! It’s called FURniture for a reason. If it was for humans, it would be HUMAniture.

    Oh, and looking at your post from yesterday, I’m glad Nebraska is flat. That is some VERY scary stuff! I’m glad no one was seriously hurt or killed. That is a miracle! I guess it’s a good thing it happened at 2 a.m. instead of 2 p.m.!

    Hmmm.. I got the message. It was quite clear. Humans are hard to train.

    Who could ignore the message from a face like that? Sure looks like Ruby made herself right at home.

    Yes, Ruby, its clear what you want, but maybe your Dad thinks that is HIS chair. If so, he rulez. If not, keep trying!

    Hows the bread game lately?

    Kisses,

    We has some cats in our house that feel like Ruby. Momma uses the recliner and we gets the sofa – good deal☺

    Ruby. That face to face picture is priceless. Tell your people to print that one and give it as a gift. We bet it’ll make hu-dad smile. It sure made us feel happy inside.

    Love

    Well, with that clear message, I hope that you moved! I think that it’s having a name that starts with ‘R’ that leads to all sorts of crazy behavior 🙂

    Love the last picture. That is *exactly* what she is saying. My humans need to be that receptive!

  18. pam on October 27, 2009 at 5:27 am

    She’s such a lovey pup.

  19. Mochi on October 27, 2009 at 4:32 am

    First the bread box…then the chair! Sheesh!
