A tribute to my boy, Rufuz...may he outlive me...



In the dark,

Just prior to sleep,

I know you’re always there.


When I am at work all day,

Alone and stressed,

I know you’re always there.


When just doing nothing,

Sitting around the house all day,

I know you’re always there.


When traveling,

Without companionship,

I know you’re always there.


Always there inside of me,

Thoughts of your love,

Thoughts of playing with you when I get home,

Both of these and more keep me going.


This tribute is to you, Rufuz,

My dog, my confidant, my companion, the other poet here,

The one who keeps my heart warm,

And my laughter happy…


This and much more you do for me, kind and gentle Rufuz,

Never my dog, but my friend,

I know you’re always there for me waiting for me to return…


I love you Rufuz old buddy,

More than words can say,
Yes, my boy, even when you are muddy…               (ed)

Good write, so sentimental a person wrote this.

This is a heartwarming tribute! Rufuz is a very handsome dog. Reading this and seeing his picture got me to thinking about how it might be time for me to consider becoming a dog owner again. Spring of course because of the training :-)

This is another fine tribute to my favorite little poochiekins, Rufuz! Ohhh, what a beauty he is; even in black and white he looks GREAT! So glad you have Rufuz in your life; you truly ARE blessed! (((HUGS))) and much love to you and to Rufuz~your Texas friend, Karen Lynn. :D Love you, Ed (and RUFUZ!)!!
