In Memory of Ruby

Meet Ruby, our dog. Ruby was a Great Dane. If you are not into dogs, Great Danes are known for their size, being one of the largest dog breeds in the world. Great Danes are also known for their friendly nature and are often referred to as a "gentle giants".

Ruby lived well beyond the average lifespan of her breed of six to eight years and passed away last month with an age of ten. She died of old age in our arms. This was - and still is - a sad and painful situation which only dog lovers can understand.

(And of course, Ruby was named after the Ruby programming language, my favourite programming languages of that time.)
