New York: If you think dogs playing poker is just the name of an oil painting, Long Island native Rick Caran has a couple of canines he'd like you to meet.

Caran, 68, is the man behind Ruby, a three-pound Yorkie who holds the title of "the world's only poker-playing dog."

The tiny pup travels with Caran around the world, demonstrating her talents to rapt audiences at conferences, birthday parties and luncheons, reported a daily.

The card-playing trick all began with Jilli, another Yorkie that Caran found on the street near his Huntington, Long Island home nine years ago.
