Did you ever walk into a room and forget why you walked in? I think that's how dogs spend their lives. Sue Murphy


I’m sorry Rufuz…


Only for myself today did I care,

My feelings here do I bare,

I just tried to get off of work so hard,

I just hope of me your feelings are not scarred,

You are, you should know, my very bestest pard…


Ran out the door,

To work I had to do so we are not poor,

Upset though I was,

I should have remembered to leave you a snack,

Surprised am I that when I came through the door,

You did not of me attack…


I did walk you before I left,

I left you fresh cold water too,

But for dinner you had to wait till after midnight,

I sincerely hope you did not feel in anyway bereft…


Heading home I was quite worried,

In fact, even in the rain, I hurried,

To get home to my pal, my buddy, my dog most loyal,

To treat you for the rest of the weekend,

Like someone near a king, at least most royal…

Now, we must say! How could you! We hope that you always treat him like a King, not only on the weekend. -- Forgive him, Rufuz, he is just only human, nothing that can be done about it and after all, most of the time he's a good Daddy (for a human).

Starving him a bit will make him enjoy his food even more. Though I think he should still bite your butt for neglecting him LOL.

Midnight???!!!!! Poor, Poor, Rufie. Next time, let me know - I'll Fed-Ex him dinner. He even knows how to sign for those Fed-Ex packages. (Oops, that was our secret.)

Rufuz might be sad, but that's what unconditional love is about: he'll love you anyway, despite yourself. :) I do.

Remorseful write, very well penned, and that pic...awwwwww.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Animals are much more forgiving of their human masters than we humans are to one another when people do us wrong. That's what makes them so special. Dog, cat, it doesn't make any difference. They love us unconditionally and fully. Oh, if we humans could only learn to be like the animals, if only for a little while...the world would be a much better place! Very well done, Ed (and Rufuz); bravo!!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

ADORABLE write, aDORable Rufuz, aDORable you! :)

Animals are more forgiving then people and that is why you where not attacked. Rufuz knows of your love and knew you would feed him as soon as you remembered. Be kind to yourself this weekend as well, Rufuz wants you to be happy and you want to make him happy don't you? :-)
Reviewed by Susan de Vegter 4/21/2006
OH Ed!!!!

There is no relationship more dedicated than a man and his dog. He is lucky to have you and YOU ar mighty lucky to have this caring and loving companion. Rufuz loves you about as much as you love him. It is evident.
