RUFUS...RIGHT AT HOME!
Well, Rufus is officially a member of our family. This beautiful boy has met our son and daughter-in-law and lovely baby girl and they love him and he adores our little granddaughter.
The three cats have accepted him although I think Luca is reverting back to his baby ways for attention.
As you can see he made himself right at home on my kitchen chair. He was so comfy I did not have the heart to make him go down so there is a blanket on the chair now.
Rufus is a lovely, happy boy and even after one weekend it is like he has always been a part of our family. I am sure that Duffy and Penny would approve.
Here is his story. The girl who had him and his companion as puppies lived in an apartment and kept them in a large carrier when she was not home. The landlord made her get rid of them because he felt they were too big to stay in a tiny apartment. She posted them on Kijiji and a man took them and for some reason let the go a few days later. Thank goodness they stayed together and our SPCA found them. The female was adopted right away ( she was white in colour and Rufus being a black coated dog did not get adopted because black dogs and cats are the last to get adopted which I really do not understand) anyway, he was sent to the Rescue Pets Match in Cambridge and fostered. The Rescue put him on Kijiji, like many Rescues do, and I found him. He has now got a forever family and home. I know that many of my fellow bloggers also adopt and I highly urge you all to do so because not only do you give a wonderful home to a wonderful pet but they give you back so much more.
I want to thank all of you for following me on my journey these past few months with the loss of my two loves, Duffy and Penny to my finding our boy Rufus. There will be another furry baby down the road to join Rufus I don't know when but I do know that when I see him or her I will know that they are the one I have been waiting for.
Drop by LUCYS GARDEN today and see the results of my first attempt at making Macaroons.
