Ruby Tuesday – The Blur

Ruby here. For some reason, all of you think I just lay around and wait on things to happen.

But I am actually always on the move.

Constantly patrolling my, well, kitchen.

Patrolling and attacking those camera people who lay in the floor and take my picture. Who are those people?

Oh, sorry about those nose prints.

So I will just lay here innocently now.

Hey - why are you taking all of the food off of the counter?

    Keep up the great patrol work my friend. 🙂

    How were you able to capture the blurry picture so perfectly? Was it the camera or a particular setting or done in editing?

    I’ve been trying to snap some action shots of my four huskies but they never come out. They always come out entirely blurry. Please share your technique

      Pure luck and a lot of outtakes.

    Ruby my cousin, there is nothing wrong with loving food. I, myself love food!!! Maybe all red huskies love food more than others 🙂

    You are too cute Ruby! Looks like a lot of your activity and patroling has something to do with the kitchen and dining table 😉 *hehe*

    Licks and lots of slobber,

    Ruby, I don’t know if it’s possible to be any cuter than you! I like how you keep everyone on their toes!

    That is a lot of action, Ruby!
    Kisses and hugs

    You are one efficient pup!
    Hope the food comes back on the counter!

    Wake up and smell the coffee, while you are out there, Ruby. They must think you are a food snitcher!

    Yoicks, can it be???

    Kisses, Stella

    Just doing your job, right Ruby? You are poetry in efficient motion!

    Ruby, that second last photo of you is positively adorable! My mum says you can have all the bread you want if you come over here.

    take care

    Woo are furry expressive, Ruby… that’s quite an art to be able to communicate with the humans like that!

    Your a funny gal, Ruby. You need a cat helper to push the food off the counter or at least closer to the edge like I do.

  16. The Army of Four on May 10, 2011 at 1:44 pm

    Ruby, you are my kinda gal! And really… why ARE they moving the food off the counter? You’re such an innocent Siberian!
    Play bows,

    LOVE the expression in the last photo 🙂
