Ruby, a dog comes alive!

If you have been reading this blog you know about little Ruby, our refuge from a puppy farm.   She arrived skinny, scared and afraid of humans and dogs alike.   Nothing about life is good when you have spent it in a tiny cage, paws deep in urine and feces to the point that your red paws are bleached white.   Nothing is good in life when you have been starved and mistreated.   You find a place to hide, you run from food, you run from people and you run from other dogs.  
Below, Ruby peers out from behind the protection of Bella.   When you are a tiny, scared girl, the world looks a lot safer when you hide behind the big Alpha female of the pack. 
Guess what?   Meet Ruby, our newest pack member.  We placed her front paws on  a copy of the Golden Retriever National Registry and we swore her in as a genuine loving, friendly and playful Golden Retriever.    World, meet Ruby G. Retriever.
She may not be all the way there yet, there is much work to be done, but she sure is making strides.    Welcome to the world of loving Golden Retrievers Ruby, we are all pulling for you.
