Pax’e and her friend Ruby taking a breather…
On this remarkably comfortable summer morning Pax’e and her new friend Ruby ran, tumbled, chased, and mouth wrestled to their hearts content.
Occasionally Pax’e would chase another dog, but back she would come to Ruby. It was a good long time of this tumbling until they were wet and tired enough to take a breather and pose for their picture. Maybe you can see how soggy they are.
Perhaps the sixteen-week-old Standard Poodle Ruby inspired Pax’e’s mothering instincts, or maybe Ruby is just a great playmate.
Thanks to Ruby’s human, Karen, for the picture!
Now that the humans have graduated, it’s time to think about getting our canine friends a cap and diploma, too.
