Ruby Tuesday – Favorite Activities at The Herd Annex

For newer readers, The Herd Annex is the hu-grandmom’s house on the other side of the valley. Let’s check in on some of their favorite activities.

Ruby carefully monitoring dinner preparations.

Tartok combines two great activities - napping beside the dinner table.

Did you think we were going to list counter surfing? Would this innocent face ever be involved in something like that?

    Isn’t counter surfing an Olympic sport? Gotta keep in training!

    Ruby and Tartok are very busy. It’s a hard schedule they keep up with.

    Let’s just say “no” for those “newer readers.” I mean why would anyone plant preconceived notions (unproven or otherwise) before they really know her? I mean, really. It’s completely unfair to assassinate her character with the new readership. completely.

    then again. she’s a sibe. criminal activities are in the genes…new readers should KNOW that!

    Ruby, with a face like that, you shouldn’t have to counter surf! The humans should just drops tasty bits of food right into your mouth!

    Never, Ruby! We all know just how good of a girl you are, never causing any trouble, any worries for hu-grandma. Never!!!
