Ruby 9/28/2008 - 10/16/2021

 


Ruby   9/28/2008  -  10/16/2021



 Ruby's Mom here:

Ruby has gone over the Rainbow Bridge.

Her arthritis was causing too much pain, plus some other health issues I will tell you later,

Once I can stop ugly-crying, and getting the keyboard all full of snot and tears.....


Thank you all for all the emails and sweet  messages, I will answer them all very soon.

She loves all of you.


πŸ’”




Thank you Ann and June for the beautiful badge!

  1. Been there. The way I see it is that they don't last as long as humans or parrots. She had a good life and she'll thank you when you meet her again. We have a few that we will see again.

  14. It is the hardest thing to say good bye to a much loved friend and compatriot in squirrel chasing, Ruby. Dearest friend, we will miss your posts so very much, but not as much as we will miss knowing you are there. To your mom and family we offer our sincerest condolances, but know that we will all be reborn and meet again, if not in this life, then the next.
    Gentle purrs to you all from
    Mrs H and I, Erin

  18. Judi I always have lots of words; however, there is not enough space in the interwebs to tell you how dear Ruby was Madi and I. Each time I see an AireGal walking about our trails I hear Ruby's voice in my head...and a giggle. She left an soft paw print on my heart. Madi and Ruby had so much fun. I don't recall who taught whom to twerk but I know there was a Margarita truck near by. Should I hear a rumble today I'll know Ruby and Madi are 'twerking with the stars'! My heart hurts for your loss...I send purrs and hugs that in time you will hear Ruby saying Ma wipe your eyes, have a margarita and blow some bubbles into the air. I leave you with my best efforts to describe Ruby using her name with a wee bit of help from Madi

    Real deal
    Uwere loved by all 87 x 87
    Bodacious
    You always made me smile


    We all know Ruby was Queen of Margaritas
    I had to have "M" to describe her so I'm added it with Madi's name)


    Margaritas
    Airedale
    Double Divas
    Incredibly fun Part-ee Girl

    Ruby and Judi thank for the memories, fun, giggles and most of all your ability to laugh at yourselves.
    That is a rare gift
    Love Cecilia and Angel Madi

  26. We're so sorry to hear this news about Ruby. Ruby was always the life of the Blogville parties and we will always remember her fondly. Somewhere she and all her Blogville friends at the Bridge are having lots of margaritas. We send warm hugs to you, her loving mom.

    ReplyDelete
  27. NO!!! Ruby has always been such a good friend. She cheered us with her sarcastic remarks and made us laugh. We will miss her terribly! We're sure our Porties greeted her at the Bridge with a gallon of margarita and lots of crazy stories. There's probably a loud raucous party that will last for days.

No doubt your sweet girl is bouncing around with Sam, each without infirmities, free of any pain or signs of age while sharing a delish margarita or three. Hugs and tail wags, Monika, Norman, & Elsa 🐾

  37. Oh no...I am so very sorry to learn of beautiful Ruby earning her furangel wings. Makes me so sad...all of our dogs have been like virtual friends over the years and grew up together here in Blogville. Losing each one hurts. Ruby you will be missed so much. Find my four and so many other Blogville furangel friends and have some pain-free zoomies in those forever green pastures beyond the Rainbow Bridge. Sending huge, teary hugs to your hu-mom... xoxo

  38. This is the most awful, awful news ever. I am in shock and my heart is just breaking for you. Ruby brought so many of us so much joy, with her tag line "love you lots", etc........I think she was the same age as Dakota. I just can't wrap my head around this. My heart is breaking. Wish I could be there to bring you some comfort. We will miss Ruby sooooo much! (((hugs))))) xoxo

  39. Oh, this makes me so sad. I loved your Ruby and always enjoyed seeing her on Sundays. She had a huge personality. Please accept my prayers, sympathy, love and hugs as you and your family grieve. I am right there with you with the recent loss of our Giulietta. It is absolutely never long enough with our fur kids! πŸ˜˜πŸ’— Janet and all the Kitties Blue

  41. Ruby was such a wonderful, fun-loving soul. She taught me so much, like how to make your own fun no matter what (and how to make a margarita). I loved her, and so did Angel Casey before me. Momma says the world will be a little less brighter without her in it, but the Bridge is certainly having a big margarita party to welcome her!

  54. Ooooh Judi. I am so SO very upset to hear this. Roby has been such a joy to see every week in the Sunday Selfies. (My friends will tell you keeping up is not one of my strong points so the Selfies was a big help in keeping me in touch).

    Seeing her happy and cheeky face made my week complete and her loss is a truly sad one. I am sat in tears and grieve at your loss.

  64. When Amber started her blog back in 2012, Ruby was one of our FURst FURiends. So many happy, wonderful years spent in Blogville, enjoying Ruby's adventures and especially the Margarita parties. I will NEVER look at a Margarita again without thinking about Ruby. I bet Amber was waiting by the gate to the Bridge and greeting Ruby when she arrived. I would like to think about both of them sipping Margaritas by the pool. And then there were all the bubbles too.....

    I am so very sorry to hear that Ruby has started her journey to the Bridge. My heart shares your pain. Sending lots of hugs.

    Ruby, run young and pain-free once again. You and Amber play nice up there, ok?

  65. I am so very sorry for your loss and for Blogville's loss. Who is going to make the drinks?!
