Name:  Ruby Maybeline

Breed:  Blue Heeler

Age: 8

Likes:  Seeing how many toys she can carry at one time, car rides, belly rubs, herding her brothers and moms like they are cattle, and sniffing little kids’ belly buttons.

Dislikes:  Being touched in her armpits, the sound of a trumpet, cigarette smoke, and having her picture taken.

What she does all day:  Bosses her little brother George around, basks in intense patches of sunshine, organizes all her toys into one pile in random places of the house and yard, and chills on her personal throne.

Heroes: Her older brother, Marley

One word: Tender

Owner: Shelly O’Barr, The Studio
