Wordy Wednesday Walkies

Why am I sitting, and not walking?

Wells, Ma says we have to have 'Sidewalk Etiquette'.
You see, some peeps aren't comfortable around dogs (I KNOWS! weird),
so when we see someone coming towards us, 
Ma pulls me into a driveway and has me 'sit and stay'.

So the peep can walk by without me scaring them.
(see the peep keeping their distance? it's a good example of someone not comfortable)

Ma says it's just the courteous thing to do.

Plus, I gets to practice my 'sit and stay' and gets a treatie!



  1. Hari OM
    gotta love those win-wins Ruby!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. that is very nice to let da people pass who fear dogs (ha!) and who dislike dogs (WEIRD!)...hugs to you and your mama for being friendly even to those who are... well not so much on our side...

  3. Momma says I could stand to learn some sidewalk ed-a-kit - I say people who laff at me growlin should learn to respect my authoritah!

  4. You are a very well mannered AireGirl, Ruby, and getting treats for being a good girl is a wonderful thing!

  5. You are very polite so it is good you get treats.

  6. We do the same thing when walking Big Boy, he is big and black and some people are scared of him. we can tell by the way they walk and look.. we do the same thing, sit and stay or sometimes we just move to the other side of the street if there is no driveway.. I have two friends that are afraid of dogs, any dog.

  7. Your mom is right about that. You are being courteous and so is your mom. Your mom rocks. Okay the treats are nice too.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Hope you had a woof woof Wordless Wednesday, Ruby. My best to your mom. ♥

  8. That is very courteous of you Ruby. We're glad to hear you also get some treats for your efforts.

  9. Sidewalk etiquette? The sidewalks I've encountered have never been nasty.

  10. Ruby, unfortunately for your training, if I saw you, I'd throw myself down and pet pet PET you! That's not polite, I know it!

  11. We always get dragged off the path when people come towards us....and we have to wait. But that's probably because Dui has bitten people in the past, and we tend to lunge if there is another dog involved. SHE says we're getting better. We can see you have good manners.

  12. Rubyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy you and Ma are for sure a very courteous ladies and I admire you. BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT pray tell me what in the world do they find scary about you my word. Obviously they are aliens and don't have a clue WHO you ARE.
    Dang maybe you need to set up a Margarita stand??!!
    Hugs your admiring southern friend
    PS just saw Eastside comment. I could not have said it better I'd be all over you like white on rice

  13. You get a Treatie?? That would be totally worth it for us too!
    Rosy, Jakey & Arty

  14. Our parents do that t---WAIT A SECOND!!!!! You get a TREAT for doing that?!?!?
    I need to file a grievance with someone.
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  15. Hey, we are going to make sure our Mom sees this. We have to sit and wait for peeps to pass too, but we don't get a treat either!!!

  16. That is so very courteous of you Ruby. Mom makes me do that to sometimes cause I tend to bark at people I don't know
    Hazel & Mabel

  17. I'd come running over to pet you, Ruby! What an amazing good girl you are! I agree that it's a win-win :)

  18. I hope your ma doesn't deny those peeps who are jonesing for a fluffy tail wagging greeting. That'd be a real shame. And I hope she gives you a treat each time you wait.

  19. We know you are sweet and only chase tree rats.

  20. That is very nice of you, Ruby. Everybody that walks past you must say what a good girl you are. Thanks for sharing the wonderful post. Have great rest of your weekend.

  21. Charlee: "Ruby, how could anyone be scared of a sweet pretty girl like you?"
    Chaplin: "Yes, they should be scared of really scary things. Like vacuum cleaners."
    Charlee: "But we're happy there are treats in it for you!"
    Chaplin: "Beware! Beware the vacuum cleaners!"

  22. That is exactly what Mom does to me! I mean, bark like a mad dog at a few folks and suddenly you have to be distracted when someone walks by. SMH At least we do score some delicious treats! Hee hee hee!
