Ruby was the perfect family dog. Totally neurotic, yes, but she was absolutely lovely. 100% trustworthy with small children and small pets - she even let the rabbits groom her! - and not all that hard to take care of. The occasional bath and weekly brush were all it took to keep her long hair shiny and smooth. She was, however, neurotic to the extreme. Always on edge, never slowing down. Which is sad for her, but made her a really good guard-dog. She knew the people in the area and wouldn't bark at them, but any strangers would be announced by her loud barking.
