    Just tooo cute and plays into my point exactly. These may seem like a cheap sales ploy, but it’s people like these wonderful owners that would go crazy over the book “Ruby’s Tale”. You can go to my website and a see what readers are saying and other stuff. You can order it (soft cover or as an e-book) through Amazon or Barnes & Noble or get it paw printed through the website….And don’t forget to read my monthly column here at Stubby Dog! Hugs, Ruby

  2. StubbyDog says:

    @Ruby the PitBull Oh Ruby, you can give a shameless plug anytime! And to that end, check out our story about books for kids about pit bulls, which includes Ruby’s Tale:

    and Ruby’s column for this month:

    We love you Ruby!!!!!!!!

  4. StubbyDog says:

    @JillRheaume Haha, thanks for commenting.

    I had the pleasure of caring for a little girl named Mollie who had Cerebral Palsy years ago, she and my American Pit Bull were good friends. I would bring Mo home to hang with Gia and Gia would just kiss her face off. lol One day Mo bit down and got the tip of G’s tongue in her teeth, it really was like a scene from dumb and dumber with the whole tongue stretch. Mo let Gia loose, she walked away for a sec as if her feelings were hurt and went right back of to love Mo some more. You can’t get more laid back than Gia and she looks a lot like the dog Mello above.

  6. StubbyDog says:

    @NonyaFlippinBizz Such a sweet story. Gia sounds like a dream dog. What a good nanny dog!
