Ruby Tuesday – Defective Ears

The human said to pose. And now he complains about my ears.

Let me concentrate on raising this ear. Thinking. Thinking.

Fine - both ears. Happy?

Woo - Exhausted.

Ruby would also like to point out the patch work on the wall behind her.  She would like to point it out because she had absolutely nothing to do with it.  Nothing.  Nada.  Zip.  Despite her reputation, she had nothing to do with that particular destruction.  And who did, you ask?

Anything to say there, Mr. Angelic Wonder?

Note – Mr. Tartok’s press secretary has issued the following statement — “No comment.”

    I have done the ear back thing to Mom a few times too….why do humans dislike that so much? I think you look good in all of your pictures. 😉

    Defective ears… some may call then effective ears. It makes the people go all soft. You get away with anything if you turn those ears on!

    Where do I learn how to do it? Or maybe I don’t have the right equipment, too much “flop”. I don’t know.

    Has Mr Innocence spoken yet?

    When I make those looks with my ears, my mom says, “Steve, fix your ears”. I don’t know why she thinks there is anything wrong with them that needs fixing.

    I think Quinn and Tartok have the same Press Secretary!

  10. BloggingDante on May 11, 2010 at 8:28 pm

    Ruby’s expression kind of makes me wonder what was it that the Hu-dad was saying … LOL

  11. Teal'c on May 11, 2010 at 8:09 pm

    See – what do I always say: modelling isn’t easy and very, very exhausting! I hope you got treats afterwards?! No treats no modelling I like to say/think/hope…
    Slobbers Master T. 😉

    That made me crack up. Sagira does the same thing with her ears…you can totally tell what she is feeling by the position of her ears.

    I think you look very cute with no ears, Ruby. And I just KNEW you had nothing to do with that wall.

  14. gus, louie and callie on May 11, 2010 at 6:07 pm

    What beautiful ears you have Ruby.. They stand up just like us heeler’s.. hehe
    We know you would have nothing to do with that patch work. You are such a sweetie…

    Tartok is in one of my favourite khomfy poses –

    Nothing beats the innocence of a Khanine Khroissant!

    Some day we all need to post what our humans do with their eyebrows and noses just to get even. Tartok looks quite innocent to us.

    C’mon. Raising both ears is Hard Work (which is why my ears are always flopped down… of course I don’t really have ear muscles, so…um, nevermind…). Unless you have photographic or forensic evidence linking a specific individual to a specific crime, there is no way than any said named individual can actually be considered guilty. If the hole in the wall don’t fit, you must acquit. (Or something like that.)

    The things humans demand from us…you know…seriously…

    you should’ve given your old Hu-dad my specialty…BUTT IN THE FACE!

    Wags and woofs,

    Hi Ruby. My ears do that a lot. We call them my “Malamute ears”. Hee hee hee!
    Oh, and I’ve never done ANYTHING wrong. Pretty much. …
    Not lately, anyway.
    Love,
    Ammy

  21. Kit on May 11, 2010 at 9:05 am

    Ruby,
    That took some hard work, hope you didn’t get a headache!
    Licks and sniffs,

  22. Houndstooth on May 11, 2010 at 8:19 am

    Ruby, did you not tell Hu-Dad that your ears are down in that first picture so as not to upset your halo? I mean, really! How could he not know that? It must be hard being such a perfect Sibe!

  23. Zoe on May 11, 2010 at 7:50 am

    Oh Ruby…there is so much personality packed into that furry body!

  24. Wild Dingo on May 11, 2010 at 3:38 am

    I hope she was properly paid for said modeling services.

    as far as the wall, um, was it caught on tape? then evidence is circumstantial. the case is thrown out. geez, what kind of laws do you guys live by over there on the right coast anyway? guilty until proven innocent? oh ya, sibe laws… i forgot…
