My Name is Rufus

(Guest Commentary)

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.
