Well, why should she?!? Humans. Honestly. Good thing about being a cat is that humans normally don't even try to make us like water. However, they do try to convince us of other stuff we don't show interest in. Why?? If we aren't interested, we don't need humans to convince us that we should be interested. Sigh. Hope our human is learning that lesson rather sooner than later.

We think you look good CLOSE TO the water, sweet Ruby. But going INTO the water is a whole other ballgame, huh? :)

Erin the Cat said...

Stick to your guns, Ruby, if you don't like that water then you stop where you are. Mind you having a paddle in it is great fun, or so someone once told me, and doesn't actually count as full on swimming. All the fun with no risk. MOL

Well, Ruby, you may not be a water dog, but you sure are a cute dog!

It has to be on your terms. I totally understand, Ruby!

Haha, smart Ruby!

Brian said...

I totally understand that thinking pretty Ruby!

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

Ruby with loads of sand to run, dig and sniff, who needs to get wet!

Marg said...

That is all right Ruby. Most of us cats don't like water either although some of them do like to play in the water. You are just so cute. You all have a great week.

Misty wasn't interested in our baby pool either, except for chewing it all up:)

Stay cool.

LBJ said...

Abby is the same - we bought her a little kiddie pool, one like Barkley had and could hardly be pried out of, and she wouldn't even put a toe in the water.

The Island Cats said...

It's okay, Ruby. We don't like water either. :)

Mark Muller said...

me neither Ruby! the mama bought me a water toy but I have some doubts that this toy will ever see the water lol

LOULOU Dunaway said...

Oh, what a darling doggy!! Thank you for visiting me at Loulou. I don't like water much either. Maybe try a surf board for that cutie.

M Dawson said...

Dogs + wet = 'OhMyWhatASmell'.

LOL!!

You look very sweet - DRY!!

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

Fenris doesn't buy it either unless he is REALLY hot, then he will get in the water now that he is older. When he was a puppy he was scared of the waves.

The Swiss Cats said...

We're with you, Ruby, we don't like water either. Purrs

Cathy Armato said...

LOL! Poor Ruby. Don't worry sweetie, Icy & Phoebe feel the same way! I'm hoping we can get them out on a boat this summer.

Bobbi and Gracie said...

Ruby, Gracie agrees with you 100%!!

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

Nope. Stella and Kenzie aren't either. Our old coydog, Polly, sure was! She would run off into the lake until she was almost 17!

Jan K said...

Some dogs are just happier posing in front of it, and Ruby does a very good job of that! ♥

Emma said...

We are all water dogs now. Even Madison caved in and tried water on the weekend and loved it!

Me neither, Ruby😹 but purrfect Selfies, cutie. Pawkisses for a Happy Day😘❤😻

Sammy Sam said...

We swam Sam in a warm water pool for about 6-1/2 years following his injury. He's at best, a reluctant swimmer. So Sam sides with Ruby. Forget swimming, let's eat.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

You and Rosie should start a support group! It's okay, Ruby ... your unique-nesses are what make you you ... the puppy we all love so much.

The Menagerie Mom said...

Astrid is right there with you, Ruby. She doesn't even like to go outside after it's rained, because she doesn't like when her toesies get wet.

The Florida Furkids said...

Sorry we are so late with this but thank you for your comforting words on the loss of our sweet Ellie. We are heartbroken.

Jeanne Melanson said...

Huh! I've never had a dog that wouldn't get in the water. Unless it was a bath, of course. Maybe someday she'll "get it." Have a wonderful summer!

Harley prefers to be near the water vs. in the water!
