200th Post And A Great Giveaway!

Blogger tells me this is our 200th post, which I find astounding, and WOOHOO! I'm never one to turn down any reason to celebrate! Pop the champagne – it's Party Time here at Raising Ruby and you're all invited! Let's also raise a toast to our fantastic guest posters/photographers, Mr. Raiser, Barb and Raven, and D. Cheers to all!

Just for fun, go ahead and turn back the clock, scroll down the sidebar over there on the right, and enjoy some puppy posts from July and August 2009. Zombified by the 24-hr excitement of housebreaking, I posted that first shot, got the whole family involved in training, and assessed our progress. Even then, I knew this was going to be a fantastic ride, but I never could have imagined the friends we'd make along the way and the incredible support of our readers.

Thank you. For riding shotgun with us and for sending your love and encouragement from across town and across thousands of miles.

And it's not a party without presents, so here's ours to you: A Great Giveaway courtesy of Kyjen! I've been a fan of their products for many more years than I'm even gonna tell ya, and I bet they're some of your favorites too: Plush Puppies toys, Outward Hound gear, and lots more.

My two experts agree, the gift for our lucky Giveaway winner is a classic:


"Best Toy Ever! Fun, Challenging, Mentally Stimulating!" – Kiva Dog


"Best Squirrels Ever! And I Do Know My Squirrels Inside And Out!" – Ruby Dog


To enter, just leave a comment telling me what your pet is an expert in! (I love to read about everyone's pets!) Or you can enter by email, just click here. Emails come straight to me and your address will only be used to let you know if you've won!

Good Luck!!!

Beaglese: Entries must be received by Sunday, October 10th. Winner will be announced Monday, October 11th or Tuesday, October 12th if I'm exhausted on Monday. Contest open to residents of the USA and Canada. Winner will be chosen at random from all comments/emails received.

My Lucy is an expert in reverse psychology. When she starts playing with a toy, she little "sister" Dory always wants to steal it. So, Lucy moves on to another toy so Dory will steal that one. Then she goes back to her original toy.

Tazz is a Bull Terrier so he's an expert at hucklebutting and trancing. In case you don't know, hucklebutting is when they run around very fast, usually hitting many objects as they run. They usually trance when something like a bush is overtop of their heads. Tazz typically stares into the corner of the kitchen for 10 minutes or so. There are some very funny youtube videos of these behaviours.

She is only 9 weeks old, so we are still getting her use to everything around here, and she now starting to play with toys and balls. She is so smart, already! We got her after our 16 yr. old Patches, passed away, 1 month ago day. Although she can never replace her, she has helped ease our pain, although I forgot how much it takes to entertain a small one! She would love this prize. Thanks for the great give-away!

Ok you convinced me!!
We discovered (around age 4 months) that Pompei is an expert at finding animal cadaver. From dead birds, to squirrels, to baby rats and full grown mice. While my other dogs like to kill, live things they find, Pompei is more into playing. One day he discovered a live baby bird that he felt really wanted to play with him, grabbed him up and pranced around the yard with the thing flapping in his mouth. If the poor thing lived it was defiantly scarred for life.

He was almost finding at least one dead thing a week. But thankfully the dying spree let up during the summer or else we just weren't outside as much, and we were able to relax again.

Well one of my dogs, Ty a Rat Terrier is a master of trouble. He got caught in a collapsing building [an old grainery on our farm. A friend came and rescued him...actually risking his life. He was after raccoon. About a week later he started limping. I took him to the vets the next day, and by the time I left there he was unable to walk. They had me go to a specialist...he was by that time unable to stand at all. The Dr diagnosed Coon Hound paralysis . I looked at him, and said this little dog isn't a coon hound, and then it dawned on me. It is caused by the raccoon spitting...oh Ty! It took a good 2 months for this little guy to start getting better. I would take him out of my nice warm bed...I would turn him at night. Then take him out and put him in a snow bank to relieve himself. By the time he was getting better he had lost all of his muscle.
You should see him now, he has regained all, and is back getting in trouble!

Pets are so amazing! My dog, Toby, is an expert in detecting my asthma attacks. He is a natural therapy dog. I got him from my brother, who's border collie bred with a working australian shepard(sorry, breeders out there). Toby senses changes in my breathing and has a special double bark he gives me when I'm about to have an attack. He carries a spare inhaler in a small pouch on his collar. He has saved my life more than once! Toby has also been a great comfort to my husband who is battling cancer. Congratulations on your 200th post. Your blog has alot of followers and brings joy to each and every one of us!

We adopted Sonny, a B-E-Autiful mutt from a shelter in Texas, nearly 7 years ago. Sonny is an expert in finding our cats. We have two cats, Samson and Gemini, and Sonny is their protector. I will tell Sonny "Go find Samson" and she will take off into the field, behind the house, around the garage, and about 2 minutes later, carry Samson in her mouth to us. Samson always has this look on his face like "Again? Are you kidding me??" Samson doesn't mind it at all because Sam grew up with Sonny. We are very lucky to have such a protector and a cat expert that just happens to be a shelter dog!

My cat Simba is an expert at playing baseball! He sits on a balcony in my house, and I pitch cat toys in his direction. He reaches out of the balcony and swats them down, at various speeds. I always shout if he got a single, double, triple or home run. Sometimes he swats & misses and gets a strike, and other times I know I threw a bad pitch, so it's a ball. He gets so excited when it's time to play baseball, it's adorable!

Love your blog! Ruby is such a wonderful blog, and, even though I know she has wonderful things ahead of her as a service dog, I still tear up thinking about her moving on.
My rescue beagle is constantly honing his skills at squirrel hunting. He sits on our deck for hours just watching the squirrels in the backyard. Sometimes he gets so excited his legs start to quiver, but he holds his position. He waits for the perfect opportunity to run down the stairs and after the squirrel. Of course, the squirrels don't seem too frightened since his collar jingles loudly, and the pursuing beagle only has three good legs to work with(an old injury from his previous life that we can only speculate about). Once he is in the open yard, though, he is fast, and, one day, he is going to catch a squirrel.

Leah Graves said...

My Boston Terrier puppy, Emmy is an expert in what we call at our house, "Emmy awards". Which means, she isn't quite house trained yet and when we see a pile or puddle of hers, hubby and I rock, paper, scissors for who has to accept the "Emmy Award". lol. I know it's silly, but it has kept us both good humored about it rather than mad. :)

My Abbie is an expert at opening the fridge. Yup, she does it every time we leave her alone for more than an hour. It got to the point where we had to install a baby lock on the fridge to keep her out. The funny thing is she always grabs yogurt and her homemade dog biscuits, nothing else, so I wouldn't care other than the door stays open and if we are gone for too long everything in the fridge gets warm

My Wally Thor (a.k.a. Wally, Wobbles, & Wobblers) is an expert at hiding food. He is a hoarder!
I made some small loves of Guinness Gingerbread & left one out to thaw. The next morning it had disappeared & I assumed my boyfriend had taken it. He told that it must have been Wally but that seemed strange because there was no evidence. No crumbs, no foil, nothing. A few days later we saw Wally sneaking out of a closet. He had carefully placed the gingerbread in the back corner then covered it with laundry.
He was keeping it to snack on!

Thanks for the fun giveaway!
