Chase me! Chase me!

Ruby stole this lovely yellow ball from an elderly golden retriever on Saunton Sands beach in North Devon.

She is looking a little chubby. Might be something to do with the half-a-pound of fudge and six bread rolls she stole from the kitchen counter last week.

So I clicked in, oh, another cute shot of a dog, and found myself laughting outrageously and loudly! It's a GREAT shot of Ruby, she's looking deliciously decandent, like that yellow ball is a prized sweet gourd-pie (ok, some version of pumpkin pie I'm thinking) and the angle you've caught her culpably galloping on the sand is perfect! Thank you, you two! (Sorry about the retriever, though, who I hope got his or her ball back after at least a little chase by you and/or other adults- more fun that way.) xo

Poor retriever! But it's a great shot and she looks like she's having a great time!

Mary : sh! She'll hear you! She already takes advantage of her cute looks at every possible telling-off opportunity. But yes, thief is correct. Three triangles of toblerone went missing last week - at least she has good taste.

Overnighteditor ... welcome and thanks! I can take full credit for the direction the camera was pointing in, but all choreography was by Ruby herself. Popped over to your place - will be popping back again :)

Brenda: I bet she wished it was a pie! Any kind of pie probably - she's not fussy. Cat litter pie would almost certainly be her favourite. The old boy did indeed get his ball back. You can see from the footprints than this is her second lap - I think she did about twenty before she finally came to a stop ... !

MB: Thanks. Yes, poor old boy. She loved it. More pics to follow :)

What a gorgeous dog, and a really outstanding whole-story photo! I swear, I'm smiling ear-to-ear.

[Don't know if you're aware that chocolate can be toxic to dogs!]
