This is Ruby H, a debutante from East Altadena. Ruby is a three-year old Rhodesian Ridgeback and heiress. After two years with a private tutor, she graduated college, majoring in manners.
Turn on's: "My fluffy beds (one in every room), door-to-door limo service, weekly visits to my groomer, shampoo, conditioner, clean teeth, quiet walks along the beach, world peace, farting."
Turn off's: "Dogs who come on too strong and dead squirrels."
Quirks: Doesn't steal food; refuses to bark excessively. Comes/sits/stays on command.
What say you, judge?
I find Ruby sadly lacking in curiosity and initiative, and she's reluctant to engage in adult conversation. Additionally, she didn't offer me a single cookie even though cookies were on the counter in plain sight, something I consider not only rude but counter-intuitive. While her farts are nice, they're not what you'd call exceptional; and her breath and fur smell funny.
