We passed!!! Well, Ruby passed. The doctor confirmed that her eyes are perfectly healthy. If she had failed her tests, she would have been released from the program, so we're very thankful that everything went well.
We went to lunch afterward to celebrate. And celebrate we did, until someone spied another little celebration happening outside the restaurant, and was not at all happy that she couldn't join their party.
In the spirit of this post, let's take a closer look.
I couldn't argue with her, they were having a great time out there. She, however, argued with me. Loudly. This is only the second time she's barked inside a public place (here's the first), and it's absolutely not funny. But it is kind of funny. So as I mortifyingly cringegiggled, I managed to divert her attention away from the dogs and quiet her down.
She was in, they were out, life's not fair.
Many treats were awarded for this indignant resignation. But I can only imagine the kind of dog swears going on behind those big, beautiful brown eyes.
