For those who want more Ruby stories

I think the latest antics of the incorrigible Ruby just could get her auctioned off to the highest bidder here. I should start by saying the furniture in the bedroom in question is from the eighties, the kind that sits slightly higher than the bed and wraps around the room. I'm sure you know the kind. It's ivory mica and serviceable but I hate it.

Well as of this morning I'm not sure whether I hate the furniture or Ms. Tuesday more. Sometime during the middle of the night she managed to walk across the headboard, to the attached dresser. There, resting after a late night of dematting, was a comb, pair of scissors and my relatively new and very expensive glasses.

You know the next chapter of this story. My easily bored and extremely costly little girl brought her booty back into bed, determined to reconfigure the once attractive frames. Even though I didn't close my eyes till sometime after 1:30, fortuitously I awoke early, for which I am ever grateful. Though the frames are no longer fit for human wear, the lenses appear to have been spared. So, if I'm lucky enough to find the same frames again, new glasses should only cost me about $350.

If I start adding up the costs of fixing my almost new Dyson, replacing a brand new camcorder, several pair of shoes and all the things that escape me at the moment, I'm sure it would cover the cost of another havanese.

Okay, who wants to start the bidding?

I'll start the bidding at $10.00. I hope that isn't an insult. After all, it is a pre-photo bid.

I have electrical tape on the end of my reading glasses where Lilly chewed them.

You might get your photos earlier than intended. She was to go to the groomer tomorrow but I think I may have to apply that cost to the replacement glasses. So, she'll likely not look as good as she would have, done by the pros, but . . .

I'll throw in a bid- I couldn't be more inconvenienced anyway! I'M A SUCKER FOR THE CUTE ONES !
My little tazmanian devil boy sounds like her perfect match. I have gone through more bitter apple than I can believe. At least she's not a poo eater too like my ruffian .

Oh Geri, that little girl is such a rascal! Good thing she is such a beauty!

The glasses story reminds me of Ivy's dog Gryff, who ate 3 pairs of her husband's expensive eyeglasses!

I need to raise the bidding sight unseen to $20.00 just in case you take the best offer and run.

oh wait, DH just patched the (then new) french doors chewed by each of the boys during their respective puppy-hoods. I may have to wait for pictures after all....LOL

She is the tasmanian devil, but sweet as can be, and she loves to snuggle. I bet she's cute too, if I can ever see her face.

Oh gosh, I already have a glasses destroyer - don't need another!! Fortunately, my optometrist's office was able to just replace the earpieces (not a perfect match but free!) so not as bad as Ruby's handiwork! I don't think Abby has destroyed anything since she was two so things should to get better for you.

I've changed my mind - I'll raise the bid to $25!
