I love these folks as if they are my own sister and brother, but the most special visitor who came along with them was their dog, Ruby!
Ruby is a sweet, 3 year old Akita, very mellow and well-behaved. She enjoyed nosing around in our yard and watching the squirrels! (They were wondering what this creature was who had invaded "their" yard!)
At one point "mom" and "dad" had to go somewhere and left Ruby with us, and she wasn't too sure that was a good idea!
Where are you going, Mom and Dad?
They also took her to a self-serve dog washing place near our house, and Ruby came back looking just beautiful!
We haven't had a dog at our house for a very long time, so I enjoyed this visit with Ruby very much. In fact, I think I'll miss her!
I hope you've been having a great week! Along with my SIL and BIL, we spent a lot of time watching the Weather Channel and waiting for news from their daughter who lives in Puerto Rico, and their son who lives in Florida. Everyone seems to have gotten through the hurricane with minimal damage to their homes and neighborhoods, so I'm really thankful for that.
I'm joining in with the I Like Thursday bloggers, over at Not Afraid of Color! You should, too!
