You may have to look down to see me,

But you have to look up to know me,

Even though in my fur does live a flea,

Listen to my voice when I speak, that’s the key…


I am a lover & only when necessary, a fighter,

As you can see I am as well a writer,

I like to make your world a little bit brighter…


Of many things I do write,

Of the sea in early morning light,

Of the sky when the weather is all right,

And when the day does replace the night,

And I think I do so, for a dog, quite outta sight…

Rufuz, you have an intellectual side to you that stirs and draws me. Admittedly, a part of it probably comes from dogs close to me before I read your insights. Comparing my own creations to yours, perhaps I should get a flea........or, considering my more unsightly scratching, maybe I have one....Jerry

I've been away for awhile and it was great to find Rufus here. It was comforting. Rufuz is welcome at my place, fleas and all. Liz
