Okay okay okay... I MAY have over exaggerated a bit. Hiking with Rubi is pawtastic afterall! She has become SO much more fun! She stopped barking at most of the hikers and she even is getting better around bikes. Mom even let her off leash a few times and she follows me around like she should. I think I am actually going to like her as an adventure partner... not as much as Rocco but I guess she will do.
