Ruby’s Washing Machine.

Ruby sleeping happily

She has a pressie from us you see.

It’s a new washing machine

Too keep her towels and blankets clean.

A funny gift for a beloved dog?

Strange subject for my blog?

I can’t put her things in our machine

Our clothes would no longer be clean.

They would all be covered by blond hair

On my best dress, no that’s not fair.

Her old machine finally broke

So she has a new one, bespoke.

So now Ruby will smell rosey

And sleep on clean bed, with blankets and towels clean and cosy.

We have always had a separate washing machine for Ruby as she moults so much our machine in the kitchen would not last long.

Last week the old machine we keep in the garage for her stuff gave up the ghost. Now Ruby has a newer washing machine than us? How does that work. πŸ’œ Greater love .

    I never thought of getting a separate washing machine for the doggie stuff. That’s a great idea. But it wouldn’t work here ’cause Puppy Cody is afraid of our regular machine. Bringing in a second one would only traumatize her further. (Ruby looks so comfy in her little bed!)

      She loves it. Poor Cody I hate it when I know animals are worried by things . It’s so difficult to explain to them πŸ’œ. It hot here at the moment so we are trying to keep Ruby cool πŸ’œπŸ’œ
