Zoey (was Ruby)
Zoey (was Ruby)

Here are photos of our Zoey girl. I wanted her name changed from Ruby to Zoey so she could forget her past. She is standing on our boat dock looking like a beautiful princess in one picture (click the picture to the left to see the other photos). The other picture is of her on one of her five different doggie beds which are located on outside 2nd floor deck, outside 1st floor patio, living room, TV room, and in her kennel in our bedroom. The third photo is her walking on the beach. We have had both eyes operated on for Cherry Eye. She sees the Vet tomorrow for her follow up visit after her second eye operation. She has gained four pounds and is a very happy dog. She still has house training issues, every couple days she decides to urinate on the carpet for no obvious reason. We walk her every morning for at least 2 miles sometimes 3 miles from our house around the park in our neighborhood. We have been on vacation for 4 weeks (with her) to a friends house in Oregon on the Coast. She loved the beach and the sand dunes. - It looks to us like Zoey has left Ruby far behind and now has the wonderful life and love that she so deserves! Thanks to Barbara Young for adopting her and loving her despite her issues!
