Thanks Blogville!

Nov. 27th is "Thanks Blogville" Day!

Yups, today is

Thanks Blogville Day! 

We are suppose to tell why we are Thankful for Blogville. 

Well.......Holy Turkey Leg!  Where do I start???!!

I guess Ma wanted to say a few words.....

RM here:

Thanks Ruby, I will only be a minute (R: you betters ~ I gots lots to say!)

I started reading dog blogs when my Mom got sick with cancer.  I had to have a 'Happy Place' to go, and dogs have always been my 'happy place'.
I first started reading Bogart's blog and fell in love with him!

Then it snowballed from there!  I found the 'Thuglets' (they don't blog anymore, but they had 8 (that's right EIGHT Airedales! phew! I can't imagine!), they made me smile when I thought I couldn't.
Then came Wyatt and Stanzie, and Mitch and Molly, and then I found Non-Airedale blogs like the BeagleBratz and Frankie and Ernie and,  well....all of BLOGVILLE!

When my Mom lost her battle with cancer, I knew I had to start keeping my mind busy, and I decided to start Blogging about Ruby.  She always cracked me up, and I thought chronicling her antics would keep me sane (even if she didn't!)

I honestly never thought I would keep it up as long as I have.   I had no idea anyone would be interested, or even read it. So I thought, maybe I would do it for a couple of months and stop.
Well, it's over two years later, and I'm still blogging about the little terrorist!!
Um, I mean terrier...☺

I want to thank all of Blogville for all your support and friendship and love.

I truly do not think I would have made it out of that dark hole without you! ♥

Okay, here is Ruby....

Geesh!  That woman can TALK!   Sorry guys, give her an inch......

Okays, now let's see,

Why am I Thankful for Blogville....
