Several of you requested more Rufus during our break from fostering. Despite his grumpy demeanor, he seems to have captured some hearts out in the blog-o-sphere. So, without further adieu, here is Rufus as he comes out of his sleepy haze…


"Oh, hello Mother. Did the breakfast bell ring?" (Rufus is a big fan of Downton Abbey)

"I'll be ready in a second, let me just clean up really quickly."

"Mmmmm....leftover food stuck to my fur!"

"Quick streeeeeetch..."

"You know what? I'll just take my breakfast in bed today. Rufus doesn't do mornings."

I know you all may be plotting your schemes to kidnap him for your own, but that surly lump of JRT/Chihuahua goodness is mine!
