Ruby Tuesday

My Boy had a surprise for us this week. He put our leashes on and told us that we needed to go outside to the big barn see it. I could hardly wait!

First, though, he made us sit and listen to him. He said we had to be on our best behavior and not do anything silly. As if.

Here we are trucking along across the green grass. This is a very good view of us, though from this angle Mom sometimes has touble telling Who's Who in the Zoo without her glasses.

We stopped for our mail...

When we finally reached the barn, we saw a red Shorthorn cow! This is My Boy's new FFA project and her name is Ruby. Mom calls her Ruby Tuesday because that's probably where she'll end up someday (for those of you across the pond, Ruby Tuesday is the name of a fine restaurant chain here in the States).

My Boy is going to brush her and give her baths, and show her at the county and state fairs. I'm not sure how's she's going to fit in the bathtub, though. Ruby's real name is Queen's Ruby Red. Even though she's got a long pedigree and fancy name, I know My Boy still loves me best!

Ah Tell! We think Ruby T. is beautiful, and hope she doesn't end up at that dining establishement. We think she should have a leash and be one of the crew.

We live in the city. Can Ya Tell?

Oh cool, another Ruby! Ruby sure is a pretty cow. How could you ever sell her for food??? Mama would just die...........
You best make her a permanent pet in the family.
Luv & Wirey Hugs,

You KNOW we're into rescue and adoption. Would Ruby like the foothills in Colorado? She could graze with the deer and elk.

A little worried,

Noooo... they can't eat Ruby Tuesday after your boy's hard work. Plus she's got puppy dog eyes. Now I've been thinking you might be wrong about that Ruby Tuesdays cos I heard it was a song first.

Wiry love n kisses Eric xxx
