Cheap and cheerful

IMG_3019

To recap from yesterday, I like hosiery. Who doesn’t? Maybe the obsession comes from one of my favourite toys – a grotty tennis ball knotted into an old footy sock. Useful for all manner of tug and fetch games until I stretch out with disinterest and refuse to play!

    Ruby I used to play with a tennis ball in a pair of pantyhose…some game we loved at school..perhaps channelling my inner Labrador πŸ™‚ hugs Fozziemum x

      Ah yes – I remember playng that against a wall. Channelling something I reckon…

        It was a cheap form of entertainment …right up there with elastics and skipping and Hula Hoops πŸ™‚

      Oops. Well spotted. Don’t think Martin would be happy. Well we’ve got so many you’ve got to use them up somehow!

    When I was a pup daddy gave me one of his old shoes to play with, and then wondered why I kept trying to steal everyone’s shoes doh! Humans are so silly at times

    “I like hosiery” made me laugh. πŸ™‚ socks are nicer than Heidi’s habit of squirrelling away my underwear…

  8. Long Life Cats and Dogs / Nov 27 2013 11:25 pm

    Hmm and now no underwear is safe, I’m guessing πŸ™‚

    Your bottom looks really slim stretched out πŸ˜›

    Oh ya. We know that one too! As for hosiery, be careful not to choke on them. Nasty!

    • rubytheblacklabrador / Dec 3 2013 7:58 am

      Will do. Mostly I like to suck the socks and create little piles of them in the garden:)

    Sandy has an obsession with baby socks. Must be 12 months or smaller.

  12. terrimm / Dec 3 2013 12:51 pm

    Hey Ruby, Moo here. I too love a good sock. I throw them up in the air and catch them, whilst running down the hall with mum chasing me. Ah, the life!

  13. speakforyourpets / Dec 3 2013 5:11 pm

    Nice one!! I have absolutely enjoyed your views and very much agree. Thanks for sharing this cheerful post.

    Mid-week, hope everything’s fine!

    • rubytheblacklabrador / Dec 7 2013 6:52 am

      Thanks. Am in a slump and work overload. Feel this could be the end of my wp time…:(

      • weliveinaflat / Dec 8 2013 1:47 am

    Hi Ruby ! I just stopping by to say that just love your relaxed style …. You are a true cutie ! // Yarri :)..

  16. terrimm / Dec 17 2013 1:07 pm

    Hi Ruby! Just realised it’s been ages since we’ve heard from you. Hope you’re not giving your owners too much grief, and hope you haven’t eaten the Christmas pudding already! Terri and Moo x

    Ahh Ruby you’ve got the bug. Ellie emptied the laundry basket all around the garden yesterday, sock by sock,

    Tug and fetch is a very tiring game Ruby. I don’t blame you. LOL!
    Great photo Charlie! *hugs*
