The day has finally come for us to pick up our little Ruby from the breeders. She turned 8 weeks old on Wednesday and could've gone home last week, but I wanted to make sure I had some time off to spend with her. We went to visit her last Saturday and she is such a tank. She is by far the biggest in her litter of 12 - definitely has not missed a meal.

I'm so excited, anxious and nervous all at the same time. This is my first puppy, but I'm a total animal lover and have had cats my whole life. In fact my two boys at home (Walter & Motor), don't know what they are in store for when Ruby trots into their lives this evening.

We've stocked up on crates, chew toys, food, etc so I hope we are set, but I'm sure we will be hitting our favorite feed store this weekend. I've already spend hours on this site reading up on what to expect and I'm sure I'll be on here plenty more posting questions.

She's beautiful! Would ya just look at that face. I'm looking forward to more pictures.

I have a cat as well, A.J. grew up with our Maggie but wasn't used to the unrelenting attention that Hank bestowed on him. They seemed to have worked it out and get along fine.

Congratulations...Ruby is a doll. You are in for lots of fun and little sleep for a bit but it will all be worth it. I hope your camera batteries are charged and ready to go.

Welcome home Ruby! I too will be a new puppy owner again just after Christmas and have been scouring these boards endlessly for information for weeks now. I can't wait to read all about your adventures with Ms. Ruby.
