Ruby Recommends

What a weekend! Mum's friend from her puppy days came to visit this weekend. She has three puppies herself now and it was my job to keep an eye on them while they were here. Of course, I had to show them my favorite swimming place at the creek, which was a lot of fun. Having an important job looking after puppies and making sure no one gets into trouble can be quite tiring.

Since Mum hasn't sorted out any photos yet, I did some looking around for something interesting to share with you and found this video about Baxter the therapy dog. Baxter went to the Rainbow Bridge a couple of days ago after a very long life of helping others. Mum said to remind your peoples to have some tissues handy when they watch this.

Oh! What an absolutely touching video. We are so sorry about Baxter. What special love he gave to so many people. Mom is leaky eyes.
Hugs from us to all of you. Ruby, you did a great job with the visiting puppies, we are sure!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Momma has been bawling about the loss of many FURends lately. So, Baxter's story just made her to into that sobbing mode again...sigh.

We just did a post on Baxter and Khyra mentioned she saw his video here. Glad we stopped by. Like your blog. And Jan has fond memories of AZ.

It's fun to be a wet dog and shake around others!
Such a wonderful story of Baxter.
