Okay, listen up pups......I have to go to the vetties tomorrow to get my talons nails cut.  Ya'll know how much I hate it done, but Ma said that my talons nails are startin' to looks like Beth's  on Dog the Bounty Hunter!  Time for a trim!
                            Anyhu, I decided to steal Jazzi's idea,
                                    and have a CONTEST!!

Okay pups, are you listenin'?  All you have to do is guess my weight.  Yup, that's it!  Okay, okay, it might not be as easy as it sounds.  You see puppers, I've been on a diet.  Yup.  Mean Ma said the last time we went to the vetties I was humongous a little over weight.  WHAT??   Yea, I know!  ME? 
   (  I guess the midnight snackers of Ben and Jerry's hasn't gone unnoticed!)

What does the winner get, you ask?  Oh, it is good pups, it is GOOD!

Just look at this HAUL!!  I have given Ma permission to award these amazin' goodies to the pup that can guess my weight.  You get:

A Chilly Bone (great for this hot weather!)

A squeeky ball (sure to drive your peeps crazy!!)

A Red Barn bully ring (my favorite!)

Texas Taffy (dehydrated beef strip, made in the USA)

Twizzler treat (dehydrated beef strip, made in the USA)

That's it pups!  Good luck to you all.  I will announce the big winner Friday, so every pup has plenty of time to guess.   GOOD LUCK!

(geez, I hope I lost weight, I'm cravin' some Ben and Jerry's.......you think Ma would notice..........)

  10. There's a BALL in that prize pack ... Yaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy for balls!!! I am going to guess 49 pounds. And, by the way, I feel your pain. The vet told me to lose a few too. Let us know how it went :)


  11. Ruby, I am sure you were not at all overweight. I think the Vets just do that sometimes to get rid of their low calorie gross yucky foodables. I will guess a very trim 61 lbs. and I wish you luck when you go.

  12. Oh my Dog! We love a competition!

  13. Hmmm... This is a tricky one!!
    Hmmm... 20 kgs?

  14. 52 pounds is my guess! Saw you on PBU - I think I have visited you before. You are very cute - you are like a stuffy toy come to life!

  15. OH Ruby, you do look good...we never thought you were a chubbster. Have you seen my brother Quincey.....Now that is CHUBBS (see all those capital letters BOL)

    How about 53 pounds...because you're leggy like me.

    Good luck at the vets! Make sure you get some treats there!

  16. OMD...Ruby, girls shouldn't tell dere weight to no one! Just sayin'......

    I says you looks about 22.

    Did ya get your talons polished too like Puddles?

  17. My mum and I were scrollin' through some of your recent posts and we think it's hard to tell but we guess you might be 58 pounds. We hope you lost enough weight that your mum will give you Ben and Jerry's again. I've never had it but it must be good if your mum gives it to you.
    Hannah and Nancy

  18. I've just popped over from PBU. Nice to meet you!
    Good luck with the nail clipping, hope you get some ben & jerry's to make up for it! I think I'm having my first mani/pedi this weekend.

    I'm going to guess you weigh 50 lbs cos I'm sure you're not as heavy as me :-)

    Doggie kisses, Misaki

  19. Miss Ruby,
    I am loath to mention the possible weight of a lovely lady such as yourself, but I am also keen to win that loot! My Grandpa Angus the airedale was 60 pounds when he was chubby and around 45 when he was trim and svelte, so I will guess that you are perhaps 53 pounds now.


    P.S. Always grand to meet a new airedale.

  20. Just found you thru PBU. I would say that you are 47 lbs.

  21. Great contest! However, we Kats don't need the dog treats. So, we will just wish the entrants luck!

  22. MOL Ruby
    What a brave lady you are to publicize your weight. I went to the vet in july..my vet uttered the D word just because I had gained .2 ounces,

    I think you tip the scales at a slim and trim 18 pounds? I weigh
    Hugs mari

  23. Greetings from far-a-way New Zealand. Methinks you might be about 27 kgs, which is about 59 pounds. The last time I went to the vet I was 45 kilos which is 99 pounds. Love Nellie and Jasper, two of the bestest maremmas in the land.
