Rrufus' last ball

My parents' dog died two weeks ago - I've been avoiding this post because it wrecks me if I think about it too much.

His favorite things (in order):
1. my parents
2. balls (preferably squeaky)
3. butter
4. walks
5. sleeping on my parents' bed (with his paws in the air, mouth open, snoring)
6. car rides
7. swimming
8. his best buddies Fred (human) and Abigail (canine)
9. my brother and me
10. snow

Rrufus looking dignified:

And slightly less so:

I'm so sorry, Kate. He was a really great dog.

So sad. :(

Rrufus was really the smartest dog I've ever met. That 'last ball' manuever was truly impressive.

oh I am so sorry to hear about Rufus. It sounds like he had a good life. And that's really all we can do for our four legged friends. Wishing you and your family happy memories :)
