Arrival Story: We had just lost our purebred rottie Jade to health problems, 4 days later we got Ruby! The rest is history!
Bio: She was a giant love bug! I have never had a dog so smart, she could even spell, well at least cookie, walk and car. Ruby was definitely one of a kind, a freak of nature maybe. She was truly my best friend!
Ruby passed away suddenly on May 1, 2008 of a fibrocartilaginous embolism. Life is not the same without her! :)
As I write this I am numb and empty. Yesterday I lost my best friend Ruby Doo.
She got a fibrocartilaginous embolism, cartiledge enters the artierial system and is carried to the spinal cord where it causes a blockage in a blood vessel, an embolism. This area of the spinal cord actually dies, it isnt painful but recovery is not likely. Whatever neurologic loss has occured is likely to be permanant.
Now they say usually a trama causes this but she just woke up with a limp on her front left leg. A couple hours later she couldnt use it and a couple hours after that she couldnt walk on either leg.
Ruby wouldnt have wanted to be carried around and to have to pee and poo laying down, so we did what we thought was best for her.
It is awful and I want her back. I will never have another Ruby, my shadow, front seat driver, water lover and all around good girl.
I'll miss you forever Doo! :(
Beware of fake dogster pages! There is one of me and Reign out there! They are our pictures and most of our info. The photos are mixed around in a different order and a lot of the captions arent ours! They are posting in forums and giving rosettes and its not us! Yikes this is scary!
Update: The fake Ruby and Reign are now gone from dogster!
