Ruby Loves Entertaining Guests

The giant grin on her face tells the story – Ruby loves entertaining guests that come to visit her, especially the Hu-Dad.

Hi. Hu-Dad!

Hi. Hu-Dad!

Hu-Dad traveled across the valley last night to visit the Hu-Grandmom and our cousins Tartok and Ruby. Ruby adores all of the attention during the Hu-Dad’s visit. They had quite the conversation.

And you will not believe what my brother, Tartok, did next!

Of course, Hu-Dad is also quite skilled in giving scratches (something about he gets a lot of practice with us back at Chez Herd). Ruby never complains if someone is willing to deploy their scratching skills on her.

Don't stop now!

Don’t stop now!

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a shot of Ruby where she doesn’t have a giant smile

    Mom, Ice’n Ebby all say: It’s so good to see Ruby and Tartok every so often. We seem to remember them from a long time ago. How old ARE they? They must be quite Senior Sibes now, too. They seem to both be so beautifully groomed all the time. Does the hu-Grandmom brush them every day?

      Tartok is 11 years old. Ruby came to The Herd Annex in 2008, so we are not entirely sure, but expect that she is 9-10 years old.
