Remembering Pip ...

A year ago yesterday we lost Pip …he was truly one of the most loyal, funny, stubborn, compassionate, loving, determined, accepting, generous spirits I have ever known and I'm so grateful for our 13 years together.  

Rest in peace sweet Pip …miss and love you, always.

Window Sniffing

My name is Ruby …and I like window sniffing.

Window sniffing is like window shopping except it's free

You can do it alone …

or with a friend

Please note this is a box not a pillow …and not recommended. 

Window sniffing is fun …

but having cameras in my face is not fun.

Photo Shoot 101

 Am I supposed to look at the camera … 

or ignore it 

or maybe something in between

It's all very confusing …please make it stop.

P.S.: I'm so very excited for my date with Sarge on Monday. Wondering if I should wear my pink flower collar or my purple sparkle collar? So, many decisions …what's a girl to do. 


Kindle and Pocket Pip version coming very soon …stay tuned! For the hardcover book, please use the link in the sidebar. Thanks!

Are you ready for my BIG surprise??

Chomp, chomp …sorry, just finishing up a little snack …chomp, chomp

OK, tummy is full and we are ready to roll. 

My friends, when I started this blog way back in 2009, I had a dream. I wanted to write a book about my journey from abandoned dog to pampered pooch and help other rescue dogs find love, joy and new lives. Oh, and I also wanted to make people laugh and smile because, well, that's what I do best. 

But things don't always go as planned …time passed, my heart grew weak, and last October, I made my journey across the bridge.

A few months passed and while I was enjoying life in paradise (you should see the burgers across the bridge), I had one regret …my unfinished book. And so I returned, hired my former assistant as a ghostwriter (no pun intended), and together, we finished the book. 

My book comes in two versions - a beautiful coffee table book and an e-book version with lots of fun videos. Follow the links to view previews and/or purchase both books. The coffee table book comes in both soft cover and hard cover. Currently, the e-book can be downloaded on an I-Pad or I-Phone - and hopefully, a Kindle very soon. You can also buy a hard cover coffee table book at a reduced price (my special blog friends rate) directly through me - simply click the Paypal link in the sidebar. If you are uncomfortable purchasing online, please email me and we will work something out. 

20% of the combined sales of both books will be donated to shelters and rescue organizations, starting with Red Door Animal Shelter (the shelter that saved me) throughout the month of May. 

We put all the names of those who commented on my last post in a box and randomly selected two winners to receive the first copies ...

Please send your address to mrpippip(at)gmail(dot)com and we will send out the books.

From Pip's assistant/GHOSTWRITER, we would like to spread some good cheer by giving a few more copies away …we are looking for a few people who are struggling that could use a little sunshine, maybe someone who loved Pip, but can't afford to purchase the book right now. Please send the names of deserving recipients to mrpippip(at)gmail(dot)com. Feel free to nominate yourself or someone else. Winners will be announced next Friday. 

Thanks to Ann at Zoolatry for all the cool graphics! Please feel free to grab the badge and spread the word. And remember, 20% of all sales during the month of May will help rescue and re-home cats, dogs, and bunnies at Red Door Animal Shelter in Chicago. 

Please let us know if you have any trouble with the links! This is a work in progress ...
