The Color of Shamrocks

071809_16_ruby Ruby is a greyhound with shamrocks on her collar. This fits in quite nicely for True Colors Thursday for this week we are focused on shamrock green!
And she has a rather nice ‘Face’ too doesn’t she? (yep another shameless promotion of my new meme ‘Face of the Week’, open until Thursday at 11 pm Cental).
KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA Here Ruby is laying with her most favorite toy at her Gramma’s house…a shamrock green stuffed eyeball.  I don’t know how many times I’ve sewn it back together because I can’t find another one like it any where. Certainly I’d never want Ruby to be without her eyeball, so I just keep this one together as best as I can for her.

Below is our Trixi in her shamrock green collar and PJs!

Wonder if a green M & M can be considered shamrock green ?

  1. Oooooooh! She is just beautiful! I LOVE that collar she's wearing! Where on Earth did you get that?

  2. Ruby looks SO sweet! what a beautiful pup - I love that picture with the blanket over her...very cozy! Great photos :)

  3. OMG that face painting is just different. I've never seen that on a dog. The poor thing LOL Looks just too funny...Poor Ruby :)

  4. I love that collar. I need to get one like that.

    then all I need is a dog!

  5. Hi houndstooth,
    I have no idea where my daughter got that collar. Ruby is my grandgreyhound, she stays with us quite often. She is a beauty isn't she, very sweet too. I will ask my daughter where she got the collar. Currently they are in London and my grandson and grandgreyhound are both staying with me. But when she gets back I will quiz her on it! Thanks so much for visiting and your comment. I will let you know when I find out.

    Hi Johnny and Thom,
    Thank you! So glad you liked the photo. Ruby didn't mind it at all, she is such a love. Thanks for visiting with me!! I really appreciate it.

    Caite, yep it helps to have a dog when you want to get it a beautiful collar to show off. Thanks so much for visiting! I appreicate it.

    Thanks all!

  6. Getting ready for St Patrick's Day already? Very entertaining post and Ruby does look so fine with her shamrock decoration!

  7. Love it! Now how about those ear tats? Green as well?

  8. Hi LWD,
    Yes, Ruby's ear tats are green as required for registration for racing greyhound litters. She is set for St. Patrick's Day! Thanks for stopping by, hope you are feeling better.

  9. Ruby seems so friendly! :-)

  10. Beautiful dog, she looks like she's lots of fun to be with!

  16. What's up with all the shamrocks? Just kidding, I'm 1/2 Irish after all!

    Nice to see such a happy looking Greyhound. They have been such an abused breed.

    Happy WW!

  17. Ruby is gorgeous, and yes, has a beautiful face! Love the eyeball! LOL! I'll see if they have those here, but I don't hold out much hope. Poor Ruby. She must have her eyeball!!

    I didn't know you were doing a new meme!! Face of the week on a Thursday? I'll see if I can join in next time. :)

  18. Thanks every one! I passed all of your compliments on to Ruby! :) Jay, the meme runs Monday through Thursday, so you can post to "Face of the Week" anytime in that time frame.

    Thanks so much for the comments, I love getting them.
