|1 year old Ruby|
We have been wanting to get in touch with for some time now and send you pictures of Ruby and to update you on how she is doing.
Our little 'Rubster' is now 13 lbs. and full of energy! She is a very smart, loving and obedient dog. She knows her toys by name (monkey, lion, rabbit, bone, ball) and will fetch and bring them back to us. For instance, if we say, "Ruby, go get monkey", within a few seconds she will have her monkey in her mouth
ready to give to us.
Some of her favorite treats are bully sticks, her Kong toy filled with peanut butter, and natural sweet potato chips for dogs.

She has learned to sit by command, come by command and pretty much stays by our side when we are outside. She lies to know where we are at all times and does not like to wander to much. She lets us know when she needs to go out by standing by the door and will bark if we are unaware she wants out.

The one thing Ruby has trouble with is separation anxiety when we leave to go somewhere. As time goes by she seems to be getting better with this. Sometimes we give her her Kong toy with peanut butter to distract her which eases her anxiety when we leave.
She pretty much has the run of the house, however, she still sleeps in her crate at night. In the mornings, she likes to get in bed with us to cuddle. One of her favorite things is to be tickled, and if we stop, she lets us know by pawing at us to continue. She is spoiled!
In the beginning, Ruby and our cat Chester didn't want much to do with each other, but as time has gone by they have become good buddies. They enjy chasing and pawing at each other, but Ruby is usually the instigator. It is comical to watch! We are having so much fun with her and she is such a big part of our family!
We are so thankful we found your website last year and for having the experienceof being able to follow Dixie's

It's hard to believe Dixie's about to give birth to another litter. We've continuted to follow your blog, and look forward to seeing the new puppies soon. We hope for a smooth delivery for Dixie.
Hope all is well with your family! Have fun with the 2013 litter!
Sincerely, Laura and Rachel
