Arrival Story:
I wanted a large, wolfy looking dog and since my husband and I lived in an apartment we had to follow the apartment guidelines on chosing the breed of dog. We talked to the Apartment office and they told us specifically no Pitbulls, Rottweilers, or Dobermans. No problem. I started my search at the local pounds and shelters and the current lot of dogs were all mixed with the restricted breeds. I ended up visiting a Breeder in Braidwood, IL. He had a bunch of puppies and they were cute as buttons but then he showed me the two older pups they were going to keep. There she was in the cage with her solid black sister. I thought she was beautiful. The breeder said he would give us a discount on the older dogs. I brought my Husband back and we looked again at the puppies and then at Ruby and her dark sister. Joe wanted her sister but Ruby wouldn't have it...she walked right up to my husband while he was petting her ebony sibling and pushed right in and took all the loving and attention for herself. Joe couldn't dare choose Ruby's sister after this blunt display. We went to the Apartment office just to double check with the head honcho, Jim and he told us there was no problem with us getting a German Shepherd...YES! We put our deposit on her immediately. Joe went to pick her up soon after. We had Ruby for one night and we were head over heals for her. She was everything we wanted in an apartment dog, quiet, well behaved, easy to train. The next morning we went to the Apartment Manager, Jim, to set everything down in writing. Jim completely changed his story saying she wasn't allowed and we should just give her back to the breeder or to the pound. We didn't know where this came from because we had talked to him specifically and made sure everything was all ready for us to bring her home. Unfortunately he was unshakeable even though we had all the paperwork proving our point. So, Ruby went to stay at "Grandma's" House for a week and we left the Apartment complex...a very expensive decision I must add. But you do extraordanary things for the ones you love.

Ruby is a Black and Tan long coated GSD with Blanket back Markings. Her facial marking is called a faded mask! She carries the Pure White & Pure Black genes which in my opinoin makes her incredibly special even beyond her talents. She is 26 1/2" at the shoulder making her larger than Breed and Gender AKC standards although she is small to me. She is truely an exceptional girl.

Forums Motto:
Who says dogs aren't people too?

Wow, your dog is Angelina Jolie! Angelina Jolie -Traditional Beauty- Just like with Hollywood superhero Angelina Jolie, they broke the mold after they created Ruby! Defying the conventional meaning of the word pawpular, Ruby can't scratch behind an ear without it being reported and talked about. Ruby leaves pets of the opposite sex blubbering and babbling nonsensically after each encounter, their cuteness and charm receptors bubbling over with excitement. Always one to entice a broad audience, Ruby not only loves to strut her stuff on the dogwalk, but digs every chance she gets to make a difference, adopt a pet in need or dish out for her favorite charity. What celebrity would your pet be? I'm Angelina Jolie! Find out at

Entry 74: I'm 8yrs old today

Well today I turn 8 yrs old. I don't know what is in store for me today because my family is packing for their move and they are so busy with their newborn named Rex.
Rex came Easter weekend. A big boy weighing 9lbs 2oz. I like him but I'm not too concerned with him. Oh, I'll pop my nose in once in a while to check up on him but it's just for curiousity sake. I'll see how I like him later when he's doing things. Right now I just want to figure out how my day's gonna pan out.


Duke is home

Thanks for the love and support. Duke is home and I thought I was rid of him for good. No I did not aid in his being stolen but I did not show him a happy reuinion. You'd never know it on his end because he loves me anyway.
