Hi! My name is Rufus! I’m pretty new to the neighborhood. I’m Bill Leslie’s new puppy. Pops took me home over the weekend. They tell me I'm a cock-a-poo.

I was born nine weeks ago near Oxford. I come from a large family. There are seven of us. Most of us are boys. I love to play football. I also love to play with my new stuffed friends including a monkey, a husky and a squeaky alien.

Mom and Dad say I passed the tummy test unlike Sparky who died a year ago. I love to roll over on my back and have my tummy scratched. They tell me I'm going to be a sweet and loving dog.

So far I've only had two little accidents. One happened near the fern plant in the sunroom. I swear that plant told me to do my business.

I look forward to meeting Tracker even though he is a lot bigger. 

What is the name of your dog? What are your favorite puppy stories. I would love to hear them. What do you think of my name?

Pops Leslie will be back tomorrow.
