Probably ought to be under Pets as well as humor, but Rufuz wanted it under humor, damn these new writers, think they can just tell us all how to do stuff. I just wish he would stop moving the keys so his paws can type better...




I AM Rufuz, the snow dog,

I love snow and cold weather,

Not rain, nor heat,


I love to run around in snow,

Also to roll and play,

While my daddy prays I donít find a skunk (what is a skunk anyway?),

I chase the squirrels right up the trees,

For all I do to give daddy pleasure I should charge fees.


I love my ball being thrown as well as any sticks I may find

And will chase both all the time around home.


But the most fun I have is in deep snow,

I dig holes and find that I like to burrow,


I love other puppies unless they are not fixed (what does fixed mean, are they broken, I donít remember being broken but daddy and mommy got me fixed?!)


I am a collie and Sheppard mix & I love my daddy & mommy the most,

They always give me treats, especially mommy, she has the best!

I also love to go to the beach, in the snow or not, doesnít matter, as long as it is not hot!

I love to watch Daddy chase the seagulls,

He really does a good job but when is he going to learn not

                         to drink the saltwater?


                                                                          (rufuz & ed)

This is a great write, remined me of my dog Misty at work, she was part collie and shepard. She came from the pound and made the best pet anyone could ask for. Years have gone by and I still miss her.

Onya Rufuz, Duchess tries to put her little paws on my laptop too, I think she stuffed up one of the keys. ( Sh'es my Silky ) :)

Good of you to let Rufuz flex his creative paws, thanks ED :)
