Our Cherating Holiday

Our Cherating Holiday at Ruby's Resort was heavenly! There were about 28 people and 22 dogs. We all had a great time getting to know each other. Why not? Our dogs were not shy sniffing out the new ones and that broke the ice and got us all talking too.

Above is Novita Solihin with her daughters playing with one of their five Jack Russel Terriers and another dog. .

To the right is me holding on to my dog Lina who as you can see doesn't take to the water like the others. Don't ask about that thing on my head. I asked Ruby for goggles and all she had was this snorkeler's pair.

It's amazing to see all our dogs off the leash and not have a single one run off into the jungle or down the long stretch of beach unattended. To think that some of the people were animal rescuers and had brought along their rescued dogs. It shows that strays can be trained and well behaved.

These people like Yen and Kay Wong are a wealth of information on how to rid our dogs of bad habits, the right food, training tips, etc. This is Kay sitting on the steps of the children's playhouse with her rescued dog.

The picture below that is of Yen in the water with her dog, Pasha and one of Novita's terriers, Jack. Jason and Rosalie Lin brought along their dog, Coco Courageous Lin, a beautiful Corgi with one eye blue and the other brown. Ruby's Resort has only the basic amenities but is extremely clean.

It shares the same stretch of beach with Club Med which is about 10 minutes walk away. So what do you do when there is no luxurious spa to indulge in? Create your own. That is what Rosalie did for her baby Coco. Here is a picture of Coco being given a sand spa. Ruby's Resort has the most beautiful and clean sand I have ever seen, by the way.

    Well, there is one trip for December 24 - 26. However all the rooms are booked unless you have a party of 6 to 10 people.

    If you do then you can take the larger chalet which is still available.

    Write to me at if you are interested.
