Ruby the Dreamboat

Even I'm not a fan of most "mommy bloggers"-- and I am one.  And the next thing you know, you're blogging about your pet.  That being said, I'll apologize in advance.  If you were visiting my blog to read something interesting about living in Sydney then click here.  Alternatively, if you were hoping to see something juicy about my checkered past, then click here.

Otherwise, if you're into rainbows, lollipops, and puppy dogs... then definitely continue below.

This is Ruby, our little dreamboat of an Australian Labradoodle.  A completely different experience from our last dog situation, thank god.

 








Only here a week and she's already a guard dog... all 4.6 kilos of her (that's about 10 pounds in Ameri-speak).

Oh, I almost forgot to mention that Ruby came to us having been on a mostly raw meat diet.   Chicken necks, meaty beef bones, and raw mince!  I can say one thing, I've never handled so much slimy raw meat in my life... ewwww.

Mama Bird said...

Oh. My. Word. She is adorable! How big will she get? I've always had either poodles or poodle mixes but I want a dog that's a bit bigger as my two boys need that I think. Love her!!!!

hastamananbanana said...

Adorable! If you don't like seeing pics of puppies. You have a cold cold heart. The end.

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Kerry- Thanks!

Liz- Thanks!

Mama Bird- She's not a fullsize labradoodle-- she's a medium, and I'm not sure exactly what that will turn out meaning!

FF- Thanks!

Jenny- Yes, that would be great!

Jill- You need to come here and meet her!!!

Hastamananba...- True, so so true.

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Benland- Thanks, she totally is!

Marvin the Martian said...

What a cutie Ruby is! Almost as cute as my cats. Okay, they're HER cats, not mine. I take no responsibility for them.

Ha, I had forgotten about Zealot. I was in a Jewish scout troop for many years, and hung out with Reformed mostly. All of us thought the Orthodox were both inbred AND insane. A lot of the grief they get from non-Orthodox people, they bring upon themselves, I think, just by being obnoxious. I'm glad you picked Superstar and sanity. And yes, an office relationship is ludicrously naughty.

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Marvin- I'm so glad I made the right choice there too! I like the way you shun any responsibility for the cats-- kind of like my husband and the dog?

Melissa said...

She's a super cutie! She looks like she's really playful!

BTW, what happened with the situation with the last labradoodle?

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Melissa- We ended up having to dispute our credit card with American Express because after 3 weeks she had not refunded us and every communication we had with her was beyond bizarre. She's a nutjob.

The Taskers said...

OK, she's so precious. Are you able pass on the breeder's details (for Ruby, not the devil dog)? We are moving back to Australia in 1 year and are looking to get a Labroodle. Hearing your last story and seeing it took you a year to get her, thought we should start now! Thanks.

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Hi Taskers- You are moving back?? How exciting! You must be so happy!
I got her from Hunter Valley-- Tamaruke Labradoodles, they have a website and Charlotte the owner is very nice. Ruby's personality is soo super sweet, I highly recommend them!

Christine said...

OMG. Sooooo cute! If I wasn't over the whole puppy thing I'd go get one, now. And her name! I love her name!

Rassles said...

She is adorable, friend. Like, tears-down-my-cheeks-from-giggling adorable.

Jen said...

She is adorable and I want one. JD(IDoThings)suggested I go and meet you so here I am. She was right, you have a great blog!

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Christine- Thanks-- and does that mean you've got a new puppy of your own-- or you just are sooo not in the mood for a puppy?

Rassles- Tears down your cheeks because you want to beat me with a milkbone-- isn't that really it sista? I know I deserve it. I know, I know.

Jen- Hi, and thanks!

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels said...

She is adorable! I would love a dog. Except I don't like picking up poo - and I'm still doing that with my not-yet-fully-potty-trained-toddler.

And we travel too much, and I woulnd't know what to do with her. And I like to play with dogs, but mostly if they are other people's.

But I love her!!!

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Elisa- Thanks, you can live vicariously through my puppy photos!

COPHstudent said...

awwww ruby looks like a Labrador with a perm!! so cuute

Rassles said...

I want to beat you with a milkbone so I can steal your fucking dog and have her to myself, is what.

Kristie said...

She is just precious! Look at that little furry face. Love her!

A Free Man said...

Very nice! I need a new dog...

Eternally Distracted said...

How can you not blog about something soooooo cute?!! i try not to blog about Max either but I HAVE TO!!

mau said...

OMG - so cute! Need some pictures taken?! :D Did my link to Cesar help? I think that guy is great...
Anyway because I didn't want to "just" write about my dog on MY BLOG I forced him to write a blog himself :) It works... Makes me feel less like those people that only write about their dogs/kids. Some say I live in denial... ;)

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

COPH- Yes, I actually got her a perm :)

Rassles- I double dog dare you.

Kristie- Agreed!

Free Man- You could always come for another visit and play with ours?

Eternally Distracted- I know!

Mau- I did, and now I'll be addicted to his site-- and I watched that video of Daddy :(

Corrina said...

I cannot stand how cute she is!! Want. To. Squeeze. Her!!! I bet she's soft. Is she soft? LOL. Please feel free to blog about her all you want. Have you suffered the videos of my cats yet? LOL

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Corrina- I love your cat videos! Do you still have a blog now-- because I've only seen them on FB. Oh yeah-- she's soft alright-- she's a total teddy bear.

Your dog is looking absolutely gorgeous.

Kelly said...

We re-homed a labradoodle from Tamaruke as friends from Sydney had to move to Japan. They are the best dogs ever. Ruby is adorable. I hope she brings you as much love as Breeze does to us.

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Dog training- Thank you!

Kelly- Wow, that was a lucky rehome. If you ever want to get together with the dogs we have a little group of us that play together-- you can email me at flgirlinsydney@gmail.com
