Ruby the working girl.

Ruby is a working girl on duty night and day she works so very hard she rarely has time to play.

We were not busy today, my friend and I, so we dropped in on her as we were passing by.

Ruby was so pleased to see us she could hardly contain herself she was dashing here and dashing there and knocking things from off the shelf.

It was lovely to escape the three of us to green fields and the sun we wondered round and round chatting laughing, just having fun.

Then a silly thing, my foot began to itch so I slipped my shoe off to rest it on the damp grass green..unfortunately for me there was dog muck there lucking unseen.

That was really nasty an unwelcome surprise people who do not clean up after their dogs really make my temper rise.

So there we were scrabbling in field. My foot dirty and smelly well that was not in the deal. But Ruby she was not bothered she ran and sniffed and played this was her only time she not have  to behave!!

My shoe and and foot duely wiped we just had to laugh for Ruby was such a joy to see and went I got home I could have a bath.

So finally we walked Ruby back to work, she was so happy to greet  her mistress we could see  Ruby was no shirk.

As we walked home we marvelled at her skill how she looked after her mistress and her kept safe and protected her from all ills.

We laughed about my smelly feet and what we would like to do to those who do not clean up after their dogs ! We decided that they all should be fed to hungry hogs!!!!

Ruby and her fellow working dogs are silent heroes, often not thought of and definitely unsung  but Sue and I think they are the best and Ruby is our favourite one!

        Thanks Cat I am looking forward to a quiet weekend . I hope you have some good things planned and I hope you enjoy yourself. This weekend sees the end of the Olympics ..what a roller coaster that has been, highs and lows for everyone. We have some tickets for the para Olympics next month…. Tickets for the Olympic games ( able bodied ) were impossible to get. We only just managed to get the para ones so looking forward to going to the stadium and feeling the atmosphere!
