    oooh that is a super place… have you seen Penny and Zero the rhodesian ridgebacks there once?

    My mom is not a CA fan, so no dreaming about that. Montrose Beach is awesome, and there is no salt water, which makes it a much better option!

    You sure look pretty in that wonderful place sweet Ruby!

    In the summer, any beach will do! I love the shallow depth of field on your shot.

  8. August 15, 2018 / 8:29 am

    It’s warm enough in Chicago, to be a terrific stand-in for California!

    Ruby, you are just TOO ADORABLE!! You and your whole family are welcome ANYTIME!!

  10. August 15, 2018 / 9:58 am

    All beaches are wonderful, and we wouldn’t even know you weren’t in CA, Ruby! 🙂

    Looks really nice. I’d quite fancy dreaming of anywhere that was warm not baking and had plenty of mouses for me to chase…. I’m guessing that NOT California, right? MOL

    Hi Ruby…Gosh I’ve missed you guys and everyone in Blogville since Mom went back to work. My little paws just aren’t that great at typing… 🙁

    Lexi thanks you for the great Blogville welcome you gave her.

    Oh! Boy! A Beach! Cinnamon LOVES the beach…but alas the one that Mom can take Cinnamon too has been closed – too bad because it has been really, really hot!

    We adore the seaside. I can’t imagine not living far from the sea. Imagine! All that dry land UHG 😉 You are having a ball there!

    We’re land-locked in Arizona, so seeing any large body of water is definitely dreaming for us. Looks like you had a pawesome day Ruby!

  31. August 19, 2018 / 3:40 pm

    It’s hot and smoky in California, so you are much better off where you are, sweet Ruby.

We love comments! Thank you!
