Hi there!!! My name is Ruth, a.k.a. "Ruthless" aka "RuthY", and I'm Proud to be part of JayDee's Pack! I hear it's quite an honour be kept back in a litter for keepers... Maybe I'm destined for greatness as those before me? I sure do hope so- I've heard all about going to dog shows & being in them. I hear it's great fun, because I will have my Mima all to myself while we show! What great fun to get to do stuff with her. She's already mostly nice and fun to be with. I sure don't like when she screams at me when I can't make it out the door to pipi yet! How nice it has been for me to learn to type *thank you cousin Matthew!* at my young age; I hope to have better grammar than Matthew does! He can't even spell...
So, I got my own webpage from when I was only a few days old; I thought it was time to customise it for me!!! Oh no- I see headlights in the drive way... gotta go for now!
September 2015.... Well, what a fun road it has been for the past couple of years! Everyone says, "Who'd have thunk..? RuthY turned out so wonderful!" (but of course, I knew the expectations I had to fill, so I did) I was supposed to be "Ruthless", but I'm not really... I'm more like my great-grandma, "MissY", so somehow being "RuthY" was more fitting!
Apparently, we're going on vacation in October- something called the GSDCA Nationals. Wonder if they'll be any fun? She keeps talking about all we have for to do there: something called "Lure Coursing", and more Rally trials (I like those pretty well), and 2 have to be pretty shows (which isn't so exciting to me, but She likes them...), and we're going to be doing something called "camping out". I hear from the rest of the pack camping is actually pretty exciting. But then, I was told i have to take a bath before we leave... yuck!
October 2015... HAH! I got the last laugh on that bath... I left my undercoat in the bathtub! And, all over the bathroom because she said it was too cold outside to blow me out there! That's okay though, I look good anyhow, even without undercoat. People at the dog shows remarked on how shiny and pretty my coat was and how nice a coat I had... hee-hee I'm about as bald as I get right now! I sure had fun at those shows; I really want to do more of that stuff and she promised we would too! Yay!
And, Mima (aka "She") is estatic with my health clearances too, so I guess that's something to be proud of... I am another in the long line of happy healthy and smart dogs apparently as she says. She's so proud of me too!
