My Protector…Where would I be without Rufuz?


Back to sleep I really must go,

Less of today I really must know,

Rufuz does protect his dad when he does sleep,

Protect does he also his motorhome and Jeep…


Rufuz, my protector, dog of my dreams,

Listens he does without using screams,

Growls at people cutting across the yard,

Does his job, paid for with biscuits, a great he is guard…


The neighbors they do give him snacks,

Cheese and meat and stuff so he doesn’t attack,

But still he does growl at people he knows,

His daddy he is protecting no one will him oppose…


His teeth so white, his snarl so big,

He does not look the vicious dog,

I try to keep him from being too scary,

He loves all to play with, chase the stick,

Give me a ball; he will give you a quick lick,

But don’t approach when he is on duty,

For he does lose his puppy beauty,

His teeth when they do bite, click…

It is said that dog is a man's best friend, and Rufuz has proven this to you many times. He is a good companion and a good protector.

Great write on the protection we get from our animal friends. Rufuz is so adorable! You are lucky to have him, as I know he feels the same way about you through his actions. Thanks for the sharing.
