Our dog Rufuz...
>> View all 5,658
But he/she’s got to be just right,
Not too heavy and not too light,
A bit of hair to cover his body,
Has to be clean, not cheap or shoddy…
I guess I want another Rufuz,
Full of ginger & lovingly full of fuzz,
Loving his dad as I did love him,
Dragging me along on walks,
To help keep neat and trim…
Something like an Australian shepherd,
Or maybe even a Lab or Chesapeake mix,
I have already picked out a good name,
Want to name him or her Jersey,
Just need some companionship, though,
What with happened last year, both to Rufuz & I,
I am still a bit reluctant to allow my love for a dog to grow,
Thought even about a cat, but do they allow in my park a leopard…;-)?

|Make sure to adopt and as for the Australian...well they need a job to do, and while herding you would be a full time job, it wouldn't be enough. I vote for mutt. Patrick|

|Ed, I so understand your feelings. When Harry, my Yorkie was suddenly killed (by a falling garage door) along with Harry I was crushed; he really and me mentally. But living alone I had to have... Okay, you and I and millions of others do not think of these friends as dogs but as family, as "kids," and I had to have a kid to say "hello:, and "goodnight," and "so-long" to. And, though I'll always remember and love Harry, as I do all my kids that came before him, if it didn't happen at that exact time, if poor Harry hadn't have died at that exact time I would not have Kody. So, my friend, don't wait too long because there is a new "kid" that is waiting for you to give him love and a home and want's nothing more in life then to have you for his best pal.

|Dogs are so much fun! We got a Weimaraner about 4 months ago from the Weimaraner rescue. Rosie is the most loving loyal dog ever! Hope you can get a dog soon.

|Didn't know Rufuz was gone. You will replace him soon, missing Rufuz too though. I wish I could of replaced my cocker Joy, but apt allows no dogs, so I have a cat Thomasina.|

|Well, you could move out here to Wise County because they do, and panthers and other very large cats. It's hard, because you will always love Rufuz, but I would bet you have plenty of love to share with another...
Be always safe,

|... there's always a fluff-shaped hole in our hearts ready for some animal companshionship, Dear Ed... And we all know each is unique and can never be replicated or replaced - not that we would want to. My old Willow dog is plainly not long for this mortal coil. I am adjusting to that understanding and enjoying her all the more because. I would think a leopard might just be a bit high maintenance... would bring ME out in spots, anyways! But keep your heart open and your match will be right along just as soon as...
Sorry about the cut-out of my cell phone batteries the other night! :)) I told you they were on the blink - and thanks for the luverly poem: I live a few miles back up-river from the actual Harbour, along the River Frome. But the whole Harbour is sandy-beached, making boating DIVINE!! My love to you, dear Friend. Hope the new job is also going well.... xxxx
