How I was found...

September 8th 2006 11:16 pm

My daddy found me on the Internet after mom and dad lost their beagle of 13 years early in 2006. Mommy looked for beagles at first and daddy wanted to wait a year or so. When daddy searched the Internet to show his nieces some cute dogs, HE FOUND ME!!! He thought I was the cutest dog he ever did see.

I was actually listed as a Beagle/Shar-Pei mix. They both wanted a small beagle-like dog and BOY did I surpirze them! I am a Shar-pei/Golden Retriever mutt instead. I will probably get MUCH bigger than what they were expecting.

They can't take me anywhere with them. All the ladies LOVE me and stop to talk about me and pet me. That's why daddy named me Rufus "Chickus Magnetus" - (Chick Magnet). He tried to explain it to me but I still don't understand what daddy is talking about. He says I am too young and just a dog so I may never understand what it means. Anyway - check out my personal web page at

Today I was the "Dog of the Day". My parents wouldn't leave me alone today! I was having a hard time getting in my normal snores. Mom and Dad were overwhelmed with all the nice comments and rosettes and I was really happy to make about 150 new pals! [woof!]. It's been a long day and I need my beauty sleep but I wanted to let everyone know that I enjoyed the overwhelming attention! Check out my website at

Hard day at the vet's office.

Everyone is telling me that I'll be in bed resting this weekend.
I went to vet to be neutered today.
I'm not sure what that really means, something about "ball games".
I don't remember much and I'm still in a DaAzzz.
I guess I'll be worn out from all the fun I "think" I had!


P.S. (paws script)
Thanks for voting for me in Dog Show USA! I feel much better!

My trip to the NBC Today Show on Saturday Feb. 24th

I was SO busy getting ready for my first long trip.
I had to go to the Vet, get a special cage and then catch a a flight on Friday after being notified officially Thursday night.
I just got back at about 9 pm Sunday night 2-25-07.
We almost hit the big Mid West storm from NYC to Indy. The return flight was able to jump over the bad weather.
I slept in between my Dad's feet on two of the four legs of the Midwest Airlines "pet-friendly" flight. They were REALLY nice to fly with.

Here is the new video of the interview on the NBC Today Show.

A new photo story book have been posted about my trip to the big apple.

This weekend it'll be my 1st birthday!
I guess that means I am no longer a puppy - even though I still feel like one.
It is supposed to be nice all weekend and I'm looking forward to playing with all my friends at the playground and dog park.
Not sure how to blow out candles though but I'll try! BOL!

ps - oh yeah - check out my "arts" page at MySpace.

I was tagged by my pal Sampson.


Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their diary the rules and their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!


1. My head has always been TOO big for my body.
2. I hate white bottles - you know: ear drops, shampoo, flea spray, etc.
3. I am a loner, I don't pack with other dogs much.
4. I love to travel in a car or plane. I haven't tried a boat yet.
5. I love to steal from purses. Don't leave your purse on the floor.
6. I love cottage cheese mixed in with my food.
7. I sleep on a full size leather black bean bag in the living room.

Early 2:30 am rampage.

July 3rd 2007 4:20 am

Oh Boy - Did I have fun early Tuesday morning.
One of my human bros slept over so he could be close to the airport for a 7 am flight to Vegas. We went to bed at 12:05 am.
I snuck into his room at 2:30 am and started licking his arm and then his face. He woke up FAST! He is not very accepting of wet face licks.
When he tried to get me out of the room, I grabbed one of his socks - stopped - and just stared at him. I ran out of the room and he chased me yelling "Give it to me!" We went around and around the coffee table until he found my treats. I dropped the sock, he gave me what I wanted and we both went back to bed.
When he woke up at 4:30 am to leave and catch the plane, my Pops was told about the early morning rampage. Pops just smiled, patted my head and took my bro to the airport.
