Monday Blues

Ruby of The Thundering Herd Annex (the Hu-Grandparents)

Is it Monday already?

Wake me when it is Friday

    It’s Friday, Ruby! Wake up! Time to play and go crazy over the weekend!


  2. Mochi on February 10, 2010 at 2:16 am

    Me too! Mondays are crap!

    If you only knew how much today sucked. I could not agree more!

  4. Mr Koda MD on February 9, 2010 at 12:05 am

    I’m so glad Ruby (and Tartok) are getting some cyber-time!

    The worst thing about Mondays is that dad has to head off to work and I don’t see him ALL day (except briefly for lunch)!

    Mondays are somewhat tough on all of us. You’ve got the right idea. Sleep tight. It not Friday yet. BOL

    That chair looks big enough for two. Do you share your chair? Cause I don’t like Mondays either.

  9. Fenway on February 8, 2010 at 5:01 pm

    Can you guys come visit me in MD? And, can you bring your rig with you. Another 10″-20″ of snow is predicted tomorrow.

    The Alphas are ready to give up driving and maybe try sled dogging to the supermarket. I can’t go it alone. Please come help!

    Your pal,

    I know how to cheer Ruby up. Put a bread roll on the kitchen bench.

  11. Kari on February 8, 2010 at 4:01 pm

    So many pups don’t like Mondays – we love them because there are none of the little bipeds here on Mondays – so it is very quiet. But yes, we must admit, we do a lot of what you are doing there too.

    Woos, Phantom and Thunder

  14. Khyra on February 8, 2010 at 2:37 pm

    Woo have some pawesome khomfy chair style!


  15. Clive on February 8, 2010 at 1:18 pm

    This will be a long week here too! The NSLM’s Dad is away in Spain and we’re starting to miss him! Me, in particular – where have all my really long walks gone too!!!

    Cool, that we will be somewhat close to you when we come over this summer! Petey’s photos of Charleston looked fantastic a few weeks ago!

    We are so excited about coming to South Carolina!

  16. The Army of Four on February 8, 2010 at 12:48 pm

    Ha roo, Ruby! My post today is all about how to chase those Monday blues away! Although a nap looks like a great idea…..
    Play bows,

  17. Stella and Jo on February 8, 2010 at 12:23 pm

    What, Ruby? No one left anything out on the counter this morning? Did you ever get the new tricky trash can open? I think you could find something to do besides snooze. Come and help us dig out of the snow!


  18. Dennis the Vizsla on February 8, 2010 at 10:53 am

    Sounds like a plan. Can I join you?

  19. Huskys Rule on February 8, 2010 at 10:34 am

    Ruby, I know just how you are feeling:-) The countdown is on for the weekend…..

  20. KB on February 8, 2010 at 10:25 am

    Great photos!

    OK, how would you like us to wake you? A box of steaks??? Or, an obedience class? You tell us.


  21. jack a-roo & moo too on February 8, 2010 at 10:10 am

    Comfy looking bed… and look! Our favorite sleepy pose: head hanging lower than your body! That’s Siberific, Ruby!

    Shall we wake you on Ruby Tuesday?

    a-roos to yous,
    jack a-roo & moo too

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
