Ruby Tuesday – Who Does What?

Ruby here. For some reason, I have this bad reputation around human food and my brother, Tartok, is supposed to be the Angelic Wonder.

So why is his sniffer scanning the kitchen table top?

While I sit patiently and innocently.

Sniffing.

Pure innocence.

    Maybe Tartok just knows how to fool the humans better. Woo do look way to innocent to be guilty of anything.

    Valid points, Sister! I believe you may have been unjustly labeled! Perhaps a civil action for damage to your sterling reputation…maybe Charlie Sheen’s lawyer has some time.

    Hmmm…. something smells fishy!

    Uhh, Ruby, maybe not Pure innocence, there must be various degrees of innocence, right?

    Kisses,

    Hmmmm. Could that be some of that trick photography?

    hey Rudy,

    Could it be that Tartok is setting you up? I think brofurs are known to do that to their sisfurs.

    It’s the innocent-looking ones you have to watch out for 🙂

    We think Tartok is just teasing you, Ruby – we don’t see anything good up there from our vantage point. You have to watch out for the “good” ones.

    Hmm…I bet there is a good explanation for this.

    It pays to fake them out once in a while. Make the humans let down their quard and then they will leave the good stuff out.

    In our house, our Mom calls it “table surfing”. I know better than to EVER touch anything on the table, but it doesn’t stop me from “surfing”, just check on what’s there. Ice won’t walk on laminate flooring, so he misses out on surfing for the best stuff on the table.

    All dogs are innocent until proven guilty…or they make a full written confession.

    Maybe you’ve been framed all along

    Stumpy works the innocent thing, frequently. It never fools me!

    A guy can sniff, can’t he? At least as long as it doesn’t lead to a surf of the table/counter.

    I so agree with Ruby.

    Why on earth would you give her a bad wrap?

    I re-define her as sweetness and light.

    As ‘they’ stillwaters snoof deep –
    Or leap high –

    Ruby, I have a feeling that all is not what it appears — especially your innocence!

  20. priscilla on March 22, 2011 at 8:02 am

    Now we know who the real angel is!

  21. Lexi and Jasper the Danes on March 22, 2011 at 4:25 am

    Hmmm, one is definitly smarter than the other here!
    You Ruby being the smart one and looking innocent while everyones watching 😉

    Licks and lots of slobber,

    that’s ONLY cuz there’s NOTHING up there Ruby. We all know WOO better.

    as for Tartok… well, he obviously learns from the master… Woo!

  23. Holly & Khady on March 22, 2011 at 1:50 am

    It’s the “good” ones you really have to watch out for sometimes!
