Okay here we go!! since Rufus is a an integral part of my families daily life I thought I would give a little back ground on him since he will be in almost every blog I’m sure. (he has a very refined palate)

The story of Rufus….(narrated by Edward James Olmos)

*queue Sarah McLachlan music fades to a sad child

Rufus was born in Butcher Hollow, Kentucky to a coal miner father…
Wait a second! Sorry that’s the Loretta Lynn story not Rufus.  I tend to get the two confused….

Rufus is my sweet Chocolate Lab/Treeing Walker Coonhound mix who I have diagnosed with BMMS (bug my mom syndrome).  My boyfriend and son had been digging at me for months, before they finally hit the mushy center that houses all the yeses to get a puppy. So on their search they went and  found the most precious little fat ball of beautiful brown fur…. wait for it…wait for it…on a Christmas tree farm in Oregon could it get any better than that!  Rufus’ biological father apparently took a wrong turn at the fence made some cute little oopsies.  So there we go a 4 ½ hour one way turn around trip to get our little puddle of pudge.  But pictures can be deceiving, this sweet little bundle would soon turn into a demon possessed pint size terror haha (this is much funnier now than then) so needless to say $1000 of puppy prep school, he is the dog I’ve always wanted.  Somewhat vicious with nothing but love to give…kind of like his mom.

Rufus is so adorable. He looks so sweet and innocent.

Rufus' Mom, I know you and your little dog too and the way you described him is hilarious! Of course, as his auntie Superstarr, I think he's perfect and can do no wrong and I love to hear daily Rufus stories. What has he eaten lately that he shouldn't have?

About Me
I'm Rufus' Mom and Sergio's too. I am at some place people call middle age but I like to refer to it as OLD (or older than i want to be). I share my life with a wonderful man who reminds me why it's so amazing to love.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things too cook are anything that I had growing up there is nothing better than tasting something that reminds me of place in my life. Even if it's horrible Strawberry Shortcake cereal from the 80's.
