Ruby Tuesday – Proof

Photographic Evidence

Ruby is always getting a bad rap for her counter surfing skills (which are quite good), but she has become quite well behaved during meal time. Note that this is during dinner.  Way to go Rubester!

    Good job, Ruby! Now just keep their wine glasses filled till they nod off, then…smorgasbord!

    Wow, Kiska looks so gorgeous in the last couple of posts. As for Sarge’s Dog Walk, I posted about it today. Finally, I must say, I doubt Ruby stopped the surfing on her own. You are going to have to share the secret of your training with my mom.

    I knew she could be a good girl!
    Good job!

    Um, could your R talk to my R, maybe give him a tip or two? He needs it!

    Way to go Ruby!

    I always knew Ruby was getting a bad rap on the counter surfing.

    Did Ruby meet my sister Starr? Starr is the best counter surfer around. But good job Ruby! 🙂

    Given up self-serve, Ruby, in favor of full-service? I prefer my meals BROUGHT to me as well!

    Woo got ’em now Ruby!

    Such a sweet, innocent face…I can’t imagine that she would ever be a problem at meal time, teeheehee!

    Poor Ruby, she looks a little depressed, like the humans have defeated her …….. NOT!!!!! As everyone above has said, when the humans least expect it the counter will be hers.

    Just biding her time …

    The lull before the storm???

    Ciara seems to have mellowed a lot too – Mom is almost ready to give her plants on the deck a chance to be put on the floor:)

    Way to lull them into a false sense of security so you can strike when the really good food hits the table, Ruby!

  18. norwood on July 20, 2010 at 8:08 am

    Show off!
    You know -I’m not sure it’s not photochopped!

  19. Mr Koda MD on July 20, 2010 at 4:54 am

    No drool, no shuffling closer to catch the dropping nomnom crumbs…

    I don’t believe it!

    Agree with Wild Dingo–She is lulling y’all into a sense of complacency so you’ll forget about the roast or melon you left unattended. Then she’ll POUNCE!

  21. Wild Dingo on July 20, 2010 at 1:52 am

    hey man, i’m cheerin’ for the other team… just ‘cuz!

    and besides, i personally think she’s just strategizing, waiting for that perfect moment when…. hey where did my olive bread go? I’m way over here in Europe and I could have sworn I saw a beautiful red head flash in and out of here… man, she’s got some mad skillz!
