I was sitting in the living room emptying out backpacks and going through school papers, when I heard footsteps pounding across the floor above me.
T. came bounding down the stairs, with Ruby at his heels. He was shrieking with glee and she was yapping, her tail wagging furiously. The two were filled with so much excitement, I thought they might burst.
"MOM!!! I need to give Ruby a treat!!" He exclaimed.
Now I know why Ruby was beside herself and in an all out frenzy. All you have to say is "tre" and she goes bananas.
"Calm down T.!" I laughed, "What's up?"
"Ruby learned a new trick!!!" He shouted as he jumped up and down.
"That's awesome! What can she do?" I asked, sure that she had done something accidentally, as she's about as smart as a bag of rocks.
"This!" He said, grinning ear to ear. And with that, he plopped down on the floor, bent his knees slightly, put his arms between his legs with his palms flat, and proceeded to scoot his butt across the rug.
