A Thank You and A Wonderful Offer

Hi Everybody.  I just wanted to thank all of you for saying such nice things about me in response to my essay on Why I Wanted to Go on an Adventure with Mango.  All your kindnesses made me feel very warm (that, and it's 95 outside) and loved.  

So Thank You!!
I also wanted to tell you about a special sale that's going on over at Art By Elizabeth.  Elizabeth is a wonderful artist who lives in Oregon and who recently gave away a portrait of Havi over at Two Grad Students and a Pittie.  Her work is amazing and she has a great talent for capturing the "character" of her subject.  Check out her portrait of Havi which is posted on her site. Her pictures of horses and cowboys are also quite beautiful.

 Anyhoo, Elizabeth is having a sale during the month of July on her custom artwork.  Go to her blog and check out her beautiful work. 

Mom's thinking of having a painting of us done:

I bet Elizabeth could even get rid of our laser eyes!!

Before I go, Look at my doofus brother, Bart:

He's in Mom's shower. He thinks he's
 "the most interesting dog in the world...

I think he's the biggest DORK in the world!!

Love, Ruby

Ruby, I always love your commentary on the world! Mango is missing out! I can't think of a single good reason to get in the shower myself!


Backcountry Brodie said...

I has to agree with you, Ruby. Going into the shower under your own paw powah do be furry dorky. Has he not readed the dog manual? And I quote: "Dogs shall only go into the mom's shower kicking and screaming after they has tried their bestest not to be gotted in there."

I love your commentaries too. And My Vickie went to Elizabeths Art and saw her offer too.

We are looking for a great picture to have her work on cause we like her work too.

Take care and by the way.....I still think you would be a great date....

I'd take you out myself but I am afraid it would hurt my Annies heart if I did.

Get out of that shower before the water comes on, BOL

Mango missed the boat not having you for his date. Why not find a handsome Rottie and go on the town?

Ruby Roo, We adore you!!! Kiss the Giz for us!

Waggin wantonly at ya,

Unknown said...

Dear Ruby, there are tons of handsome rotties out there waiting for you!

The Daily Pip said...

Mango is missing out, Ruby!

Bart - the shower looks kind of comfy. Put a pillow in there and you will be all set.

Your pal, Pip

Mom would love a nice painting of us, we will have to tell her to check out Elizabeth.

Thunder likes to go in the shower too, but Mom doesn't let him go upstairs. He has to sneak up there when the kiddos forget to close the gate. He thinks it is a cool place to hang out and sniff around.

We are on our way to Miss Elizabeth's bloggy!

I bet Mango will ask you out one day Ruby!


HH and The Boys said...

Just Jess for now said...

Very cool. :)
And your brother must be a character. LOL

brooke said...

heheheh was he getting a bath or just hanging out? The shower would be the last place Darwin would choose to go on her own!

I wish we had some green papers for a portrait of my Bambi. I would love to have one of her. I have a portrait of Joker. I am going to see how much she charges.
One of the three of you all would be a treasure to have.

Marjie said...

Bart wants to be the new star of the Dos Equus commercials: The World's Most Interesting Dog. It's good for a guy to have ambition!

Ruby, brothers are ALL like that! Quinn stands with his face to the wall and he thinks he is INVISIBLE! And YoYoMa was trying to be macho cool and was rolling around on the bed and fell off! OMD!

Going to check out the paintings. Thanks for the tip.

Maddy and Owen said...

We think you three would make a wonderful work of art! And your brother is silly getting in the shower voluntarily!

Why is Bart in Mum's shower, Ruby? I have to drag Beryl or Frankie into my shower if I want to give them a bath. You guys would look wonderful in a painting. Those laser eyes are a PITB, aren't they!
