I am so confused with regards this subject...somedays I want a dog and others, I don't...?

I do most certainly miss my pup,

Old Rufuz has a new family, shedding into a new cup,

When released from the hospital I couldn’t have taken care of him,

So someone that loved my boy had to take him, it wasn’t on a whim…


Now he is gone, as far as I am concerned, forever,

Won’t again see his happy face or again wrestle, never,

But do I really want to get another dog, a replacement,

Not sure I could afford one, as on Rufuz so much I spent…


I want ANOTHER Rufuz, one just like that likeable guy,

But I know completely that will never occur, that’s why I sigh,

Start all over again with a new dog is the only way,

Maybe into my life another dog would bring me some sun’s ray…

pet lovers are just that, hard to not have a pup or cat or critter

Muttlies are expensive and are a life's commitment (theirs or yours, whichever ends first). I know that you are aware of this and it is wise to wait until you are certain. There is no other Rufus. That's a good thing. All dogs are unique and can offer many surprises and much love. Learning to appreciate their individuality is half the fun. Patrick

sounds like a good idea, glad you are thinking and considering-many don't and then are unhappy when they get a pet on a whim-i think you will find the right companion

Man's Best Friend needs many more friends, today. We are still finding abandoned dogs, everywhere. I get calls every week about dogs being dumped in the woods, in parks, and on city streets, and not enough people are willing to adopt them. Save a life, Bro, and get down to a shelter.

PS: I'm sending you a big bag of dog hair to spice up your meals - with five dogs, I've got plenty to spare.

Heartfelt poem, Ed; Rufuz will never be forgotten. You have the piccys and memories; hang on to them, and hope that another dog with his character crosses your path! Will be praying that you get another dog, the one of your dreams ... Love the piccy!

I wish we could have a cat, but we can't, so any cat we see, we adopt and love on them. :(

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