RUBY IS ALL of 10 inches tall and 16 pounds, so the recent snowstorm presented some logistical challenges for our little Jack.
But for anyone who knows the determination of this breed, it wouldn’t surprise them to hear about the tricks and tactics quickly adopted to enable getting around.
Ruby would balance on her back legs peering into the depths of the snow from the safety of the shoveled paths her mama made for her. She’d psych herself up and then plow into the depths, jumping up and down as she went to try to pack down the snow around her. On-lookers can barely see her little head bobbing up and down in the snow.
But she always comes through with a victorious smile on the other side.
Ruby lives with Sarah Harrison Lynn in Middlebury.
