Ruby Sue


Most of the time Ruby Sue is a sweet little girl who enjoys being treated like a baby, playing with her fuzzy, and eating.

But every spring when the flowers begin to bloom and the butterflies begin to fly…

Ruby turns vicious.

Ruby Sue becomes..a butterfly killer!

Oh the Horror!!!

Chitter and Chatter try to convince Ruby how down right evil it is to kill butterflies, but as you can see Ruby has other things on her mind.

At least Ruby doesn’t waste the butterflies-she eats them.

    We have an older girl corgi who is just determined to catch the squirrels and rabbits that hang out in our yard…she has come close but just isn’t fast enough on her short little legs…she once chased a squirrel so fast she could not stop and neither could the squirrel…they both slammed into a fence and bounced into the yard…the squirrel was all over that dog…whipping around and around her head and making the loudest chittering sound..our dog was just going nuts trying to chase the squirrel around her own self…it was just to funny!:)

    I took a picture the other day that I’ve been meaning to post on my blog of one of our cats sitting in wait INSIDE of a birdfeeder. I guess it’s easier that way, just sit and wait for those poor birdies to come to dinner…

    Ruby Sue is too funny. Love the name & the pictures totally make the story.
    Our dog, Roscoe, eats corn. When the field corn is getting ripe, he’ll drag a whole stalk up to the yard to eat the ears. He loves harvest!

    My Mom’s dog, Tumble, likes to kill butterflies too. But he’d rather just kill possums, which he does regularly :D. My dogs wish they could catch the squirrels in our backyard, but the squirrels are smarter, and meaner :D.

    Our cat, Jay, who died a couple of years ago used to stretch out beside the pool and just lay there in the sun for hours hoping a bird would just hop right in his mouth. When one would come near him the only thing that would move was his tail would twitch. Lazy and weighed about 30 pounds.

    It looks to me like Ruby Sue is smiling at the camera. We used to have a Boston Terrier who did handstands everytime she peed. Is that spelled right? Oh well. It was really funny to watch.

    Love your Ruby Sue! We have a Lucy and she has been with us for nearly 11 years and she is rotten. They are precious to us though aren’t they?

    Your photos are brilliant in their color – I’m envious! My dog has a cat tail (a real cat tail – don’t want to know how he got it) that he drags around and chews on. Eeewwww.

    As it turns out, I do have a pet that does something funny. I have three actually, but the one I’d like to share is recent birthday celebrant, Teach. Teach is about 11 pounds with sharp teeth and claws like most dogs and he is completely and utterly TERRIFIED of regular, run-of-the-mill houseflies. He may try to snap at them at first but he always ends up hiding under the bed or the chair or some pillows trying to avoid the super scary house fly. poor little guy.

    We have three outdoor cats. Each is so cool. One in particular is very affectionate and always around for some love and attention. His name is Truman. He is sooo sweet and will let the girls carry him around and dress him if they so desire. However, he fights with everything in the entire forest! His ears are all jagged from fights. He always has some scab or scar on him. He has been bitten by a copperhead snake. We love him dearly!

    Aww, poor butterflies! I don’t think any of my animals do funny or unusual things… I would like to give you a funny story, but just don’t have one today! Cute pictures of your dog and your daughter too! I’m loving all of the blooms that are happening around here too!

    We just got a new scotty puppy and so far she hasn’t done anything interesting except tipping the water bowl over and chasing it around her pen. My Mom used to have a white german shepherd when they lived out in the country. One day Mom tried to leave the house to go to work and the dog wouldn’t let her out of the door. Mom called Dad and he came home to check out why Kimo was acting so strange. Turns out there was a rattlesnake curled up under my Mom’s car that would have bit her. Kimo saved my Mom!!!!

    In the summer, our little Leyna is a locust killer AND eater. For that matter, she’ll kill and eat any insect she can catch. I’d love to turn her loose to catch the mole that’s doing damage to our lawn, but she leaves little holes all over the yard in her hunt. That’s not too pretty for a lawn, either!
    Ruby Sue is a real cutie. 😉

    Bentley does what is called “Butt-tucking” It is when your dog suddenly starts running in circles at top speed with his rear tucked under him. We keep a sharp eye out that we are not injured during this free-for-all!

    Ruby is a pretty girl—except in the picture where she is baring her teeth in fiendish delight, then I can imagine her on the prowl for unsuspecting butterflies!
    Now about my pets. I have six cats!!! I know, isn’t it ridiculous. I never meant to have six cats. It just happened, honest! So, in the house with me is Yoda, Stumpy and Two Toes. These are all boys and the last two are brothers and Yoda is their uncle.
    Outside is Spot and Mamma, both girls. Mamma is actually the grandmother while Spot is the mother of Two Toes and Stumpy and the Aunt of Yoda. And last but not least is Sweet Pea, it has been suggested to me that that might not be an accurate name. He is the newest addition. He is an unaltered Tom, and he occasionally goes on a rampage, something about testosterone I think.
    There are also some raccoons who live in the back yard. Last summer there were two litters of Kits. They were such fun. Their mothers would bring them up on my deck to play.
    I really didn’t mean to go on so, but you asked and I didn’t even get to tell you about the bears.
    Anyway Ruby Sue sure looks like a fine girl!
