That's great Kelly. She looks like a queen surveying her domain! Where did you get Ruby from?
Ruby was also from a rescue.
There is a dog rescue in Hereford, Maryland near the PA border called Roxy's Fund. They specialize in German dogs, particularly Rotties and German Shepards.
She was a Rottie (my second), at the smaller end of the AKC breed range (92lbs) and an absolute gem of an animal. As cheesy as it sounds, she was my "forever dog" and I likely will not have another experience with a dog like that again. I wanted another dog after we had to put her down due to cancer at age 9.5, but I couldn't bring myself to look at another Rottie this time around.
So we got Mags and it turned out to be a wonderful switch. Chocolate Labs are arguably too high strung for the urban environment, but thanfully we are 2 blocks from Patterson Park where she can squirrel hunt and run like a damned fool! And she is great with kids. Enduring all manner of face grabbing, pinching, ear biting, etc. with nary a growl. --K
