Oh yeah. She gets right up at 5a.m. and is ready to get a rub-down, go potty, eat, go for a walk, get another rub-down, then greet each family member as the individual wake-up times come about. She has to walk each of us to the steps of the deck as we leave for the day too. It's funny because 2 people have to go out the back door at a time so one can leave and one can bring Ruby back into the house.
