parkdog of the week – Wanaka

IMG_8562-e1564882936390-480x416

My name is Ruby and I’m 10 weeks old.  I’m a totally black Labrador and was born at Criffel Station here in Wanaka and have been with my new family about one and a half weeks.

I love to play with Olivia, my new owner and explore my new home and surroundings.  I have a new favourite squeaky toy and tennis ball I love to play with and I’m getting used to being on a lead at parkrun.

 

Olivia and I get to parkrun on a Saturday morning, and I get so excited with the busyness of Station Park.  It’s fun meeting new people and other dogs and I get lots of pats which is really cool.

 

Olivia and I either volunteer together or Olivia runs the 5km course.  I’m not old enough to run yet, but I am looking forward to being able to run with Olivia, when I’m older.

 

Although, I’ve heard that apparently when I’m bigger and can run parkrun – I’m going to tow my dad Karl around the course!
