Keep that last line between us, as Rufuz might get the least bit upset...

One thing about the summer

Defrosting the ice in the fridge

Takes no time at all

Just but a little smidge…J


No fun do I find in housework

So little do I see is a perk

I don’t like to find what under the rug does lurk

Tis though a duty that I am unable to shirk…J


Rufuz does everywhere shed

Yes, even in his daddy’s bed

My vacuum clogged with doggy fur

Maybe I should get a pet that does only purr…J

Thats cute Ed but let me tell you those pets that purr leaves a fine mess behind too as mine do but I just love her soooooo much. Thank you for sharing and we won't tell|

Newfie hugs, Rose

Some dogs shed, some don't. Rufuz does, and you lived with it this long, I know you can put up with it longer. Don't insult him with writes like this. He cannot help it and is faithfully near your side all the time and is running for President, so he can afford to buy a maid for you to clean up the mess. Don't worry about housework, though, I don't let it bother me. My cat is to be wherever she likes and no complaints. She does smell bad in the mornings sometimes right after using litter box, oh well, I want her and have to put up with her quirks too. Say hi to Rufuz, hug him for me and tell him Lois says everything is o.k. by him. He is my American Idol now too. Love those photos of him. He is not causing any trouble by backmouthing his running mates, is he? If so, just set him straight and tell him he has to be kind even to his running mates.

Might wanna take a note from Phyllis Diller's book: 'said the cobwebs on the ceiling were her son's science project!
"Upstairs? What upstairs? Those are just for decoration!"
Thanks for all the smiles. You and Ruf' rock!! 'Pea' <3

You better keep this one under wraps my friend, or Rufuz might pack his bags!! My daughter inlaw used to actually vaccuum her little dog with the attachments...I always felt sorry for it! Me, well I just brush Boomer and hope for the best! Enjoyed this humorous write!
