Our brand new baby girl, Ruby!

For the past 10 years, Corey and I have always talked about getting a baby girl rottweiler that we would call "Ruby." I've had her name picked out for what seems like forever (ruby is my birthstone), and I've had plenty of dreams where Ruby and I are playing at the park, driving up the coast, and swimming in the pool. And now, I am happy to announce all our dreams are coming true and we finally got our baby Ruby!
On Saturday morning, Corey told me there was a female rottweiler in the paper and that it was the best price he'd seen in months. We had always wanted to wait until we got our house to get the dog, but with the house hopefully just a couple weeks away (details hopefully coming soon!), we thought we would go take a look and see if we like the puppy. Even if it was in one of the worst parts of town, we thought we'd give it a shot. The second we laid eyes on her, we knew we found our girl.
So, after the breeder said his goodbyes to her, we brought Ruby home with us. Our first stop was the doggy salon where she got the "puppy works." While she got her nails trimmed, teeth cleaned, hair scrubbed, and ears cleaned, Corey, aunt Kari and I went on a doggy shopping spree. We got her food, toys, a personalized collar, a water dish, a bone, a brush and anything else she might need, and then hit the road to our parents' houses to show off our new baby.
Ruby looks like a little mini Mr. Colt. But Colty isn't too sure about the new baby yet!
Everyone fell in love with her immediately. She is so sweet and mellow. Even with all our dogs sniffing her and snapping at her, she just goes with the flow. She's a good snuggler and she loves to be held like a baby :)

This little girl has quickly become the love of our lives. She hit the doggy jackpot when she came home with us because she will definitely be one very spoiled, but well-behaved, pup.
She is so darn cute, I can't stop taking pitcures of her! I know she is going to get big real fast (see how big her paws are?), so I am going to take advantage of holding her while I can! I am so hapy we finally found our Ruby. I can't believe she's actually here!
