I’m including my piece on our darling Rubes, so any imminent puppy families will know all about their babies mumma.
Our beautiful girl came to us as an unplanned surprise. After seeing a ‘guardian family’ wanted posting, for this gorgeous breeding mumma at Nicnak Labradoodles, I immediately contacted Nicolette to ask if there was any hope that we would be able to have Ruby join our family.
We had 2 x male Labradoodles already, so really, one more wasn’t going to be a problem. . . .more puppies, more joy, more licks, more laughs, more love. . . .
Our ‘gotcha day’ with Rubes was 11 November, so my choice to call her Poppy seemed appropriate, however, I was out voted by the males in my family, so Ruby Duby she was.
We had an immediate connection during our first cuddle, she was so comfortable and relaxed she wee’d all over me, lol. . . She travelled well in the car, and was excited to meet the boys when we finally got her home.
Not wanting to have either Harry or Charli out of her sight or reach , she became their shadow following their every move, and was quite comfortable draping herself all over them when sleeping. As the days, and weeks passed by, I noted a very independent and bossy little girl emerging. Lovely to see that she didn’t take any biff from her brothers, and would always stand up for herself during a rumble , no matter how small she was against them. This continued and Ruby slowly gained the upper with the boys and is now, as she was then . . . In charge. She is the boss!!!!
We have ourselves a gorgeous, affectionate, cuddly, loyal, smart, and playful little lady, who can on occasion, be quite the protective watchdog. Rubes has been such a delight to have in our family, never ceases to make us smile, and will push her way to the front to make sure she is patted and cuddled before her brothers.
I seriously do not know what we would do without her, from day one, she has held our hearts in those big black eyes . . . We absolutely adore her.
