Welcome Ruby




Today was puppy pick out day. It was much harder than I thought it would be and I was so torn between two of the three puppies I had to choose from. but, after 45 minutes of watching, hugging, and just holding these babies, this is the one who has found her forever home with us.

Oh, and my daughter picked the name about a month ago as Ruby is a character in "The Five People You Meet In Heaven" and my daughter liked the name of the character a lot. My son also said the name was cool with him too.

Ruby will come home with us on Friday, April 24.

I love Ruby! The thought of you snuggling puppies in order to choose the 'lucky one' brought a smile to my face. Ruby is also my birthstone, so I love the name too.

I think we only live about 90 minutes from Hershey too. We live in Souderton, Montgomery county. About 30 minutes from Philadelphia. Did you tell me where you live already? Can you remind me? I love PA : ).
