Fierce Ruby Tuesday

Look, Tartok, no one gets through this door without my say.

Ok, Rubester, no one bosses the King of the House around.

And to prove it, I will just go drink some water while you sit in front of that door.

Time to karate chop your head, Tokkie Boy.

Go ahead and holler for your mama!

The Ruby Fierce Face!

What do you think about that, boy?

Hey, Loki, can you come from California and hope me out? Or maybe I need Dennis, because he never gives up.

Bring it on, boys, the Rubester rules the roost.

Oh, wait, someone is at the door. Act innocent.

    PS. sibes are the MOST playful dogs i’ve ever seen. they really are the epitome of living and loving life and taking risks (like counter surfing…) They really are such fascinating dogs!

  6. Wild Dingo on April 14, 2010 at 2:16 am

    well, i hope Tartok has learned a valuable lesson from Loki: that sometimes (ok everytime) you gotta let the girl win. it’s just easier that way.

    Wow Ruby, it is just like me not letting Quinn in the dog door! Except I love your karate chop technique (what mom? No, I am just admiring Ruby’s athletic skills!)

    Tartok (Tokie??) just May have to give this a little thought. But I’m betting on him!!

    Kisses,

    Stella

    Tartok just needs to face the facts. Now that there is a girl in the house, he is no longer the boss.

    Ruby rules the roost, already?? Wow, Tartok, you must really be a wimp! And, nobody falls for that drinking water trick… we all saw right through it.

    A Husky battle for supremacy is always entertaining and educational. The Karate Chop is very Elvis and pretty awesome.

    Ruby sounds a lot like my sister Starr.

    BOL – Tartok, it just HAS to be “girls” – we boys are having the same bossy issues here with the pipsqueak.

    Ha roo roo roo! Mom said if she looks at these pix fast, it’s like she’s watching me and Dave. I’m not sure what that means other than that you two look like LOTS of fun!
    Play bows,

  19. Mack and Mia on April 13, 2010 at 11:16 am

    DUDE! Tartok! Are you going to let a wee wittle GIRL treat you like that?!

    Another incident like that and I may have to revoke your manly card!

    Wags and Woofs,
    Mack and Mia

    I notice that he did get her away from the door, though! Now I know what that look means! I’ve seen that a few times.

  22. Huskys Rule on April 13, 2010 at 9:20 am

    Looks like Queen Ruby trumped King Tartok for ruler of the roost………uh oh……….

  23. Mr Koda MD on April 13, 2010 at 2:49 am

    Hehehe!

    And while you were making mischief, the squirrels were invading the yard perhaps!

    Oh boy. Loki’s got your back. One fierce photo, comin’ RIGHT UP!

  25. Life With Dogs on April 13, 2010 at 1:15 am

    The perfect ending! How many times have we gone to check out some commotion and and seen that look?

    So are you using a wildlife camera? πŸ™‚
