last day of work

Neil, Gracie and I are now officially retired from working. Hooray!

Not that I minded working, we always got to see and meet a lot of interesting folks along the way. We've been working on Fozzie's house for the last few months.

He lives in a neighbourhood that has tiny, tiny backyards - so us dogs didn't get too much room. There is even less in the front garden where we are here. As you can see, the play yard is a bit cramped.

So finding a quiet place for an afternoon nap wasn't always easy.

But it did allow one to beg shamelessly over the fence. That's a yummy looking pig's ear, Anthony!

At the end of the last day, all the tradies had a beer with Neil and farewelled us off into retirement.

It was always lots of fun working with Anthony and the crew.

But even if we hadn't retired, I am off on maternity leave for the next few months.

I thought I was putting on weight with all that yummy food... seems like the problem started back when we went to visit Romper!

I can hardly lug this tummy around anymore - I have definitely lost the spring in my step and certainly can't jump into the car at all.

I'll be glad when the little nippers finally arrive!


  1. Congrats on retiring. When do the little nippers arrive?

  2. Congratulations, Ruby! We can't wait to hear all about the arrival of your pups!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  3. Ruby,
    That is exciting news!! Looks like you have a big family in there. When is your due date?

    Wyatt and Stanzie

  4. Puppies are due on 3 June - that's tomorrow!


  5. Wow!! Congrats on getting to retire and those pups! I can't wait to see pictures! I hope everything goes well!
