About Rufuz…



Loves them he does,

Since a puppy he was,

Cleans his teeth,

Freshens his breath,

Wish they made them for me,

Hate to brush you see…


Smart Bites…

Good for his hips & joints,

To play he never disappoints,

Acts younger than his six years,

For all intents and purposes,

A puppy is as he appears…



Hair he has plenty to spare,

Could build another dog as rare,

In the spring it gets into everything,

In the winter it keeps him warm,

While playing with his daddy in the snow, so there…


What was he, this my doggie,

In his previous life he must have been good,

To enjoy this life so happily to describe it I would,

With me I am glad he stood,

I am hard to live with, that you can believe,

He took that into account and still he understood…

Man and his dog is the real nature of happiness. Not much else on earth renders such happiness as living in close company with an animal(s).

Our pets accept us as we are and they never complain...well, my cat complains, but that is her nature and I took that into account when I accepted her. Sweet write, Ed.
Take care,
