Confessions of a pup!

I usually have more interesting diary entries but today I have a confession to make. I may have tinkled in the living room on Dad's new chair and furniture. I am an inside dog and of course you know that I am so spoiled. I am always playing, laughing, and smiling at my human family. I am good with jokes and I have a good humor. I will admit that I get to go on wonderful walks with my family. I have a large lawn and I love my walks with my human sissy. My fur sister, Lola always joins us on our walks. It is always so much fun!
I want to tell you that on some summer day that I have to stay in longer because my family is working late. (I hate when they work late)
Confession #2
I always hold it but when my family gets home I rush to an area that just makes me want to go. I usually go and it is a secret. However, My mom found the little spots and she is having a father's day party on Saturday and now she needs to clean the carpet and the chair. I am kind of in trouble. Mom has tried everything and I am so embarrassed to address this. I may have to get in to see the doctor my wonderful VET. at Kickingbird Plaza. She owns 3 dachshunds and takes good care of me. I also want to ask all of my furs out there for any tips. I need an odor remover. We got one spray at a name brand store but it really stinks and it made me get a tummy ache to smell it. I plan to take my mom to shop today for father's day. I need any tips or help from all of my fur friends and the moms/dads furs.
Ok now I have to go pee and then I have a tennis match to get ready for...

Tail wags and hopefully no tinkles!


P.S. mom is not really that mad at me because she just gave a treat and we went on a long walk. Oh so fun!!! I love the attention!


I do not like Thunder Storms! But I love the Thunder- Basketball Team!

HI Dogster fur friends! I wish that you all could see the Thunder Basketball Team play in Oklahoma. The team is the BEST! I love Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook! They are the best in the NBA!!!!
I am so glad that I was a good dog today because I got to get on my computer and type up a poem.
I also looked up Kevin Durant's page. I wrote him a letter.
I have been playing chess with my family. I am a very Happy Dog.I want to thank all of my good friends for the fresh vase of flowers for my mom and giving us your love and patience. My mom was unable to get on her computer because she was so busy! I thought of all of you everyday. I have save a lot of money so I could buy you cupcakes and ice cream this summer. I have really missed barking at many of you so very Much!
I also want to thank Bailey NWD and so many good fur friends for all of the sweet treats and paw mails.
I really appreciate the Thunder Team because they do so much charity in Oklahoma.
Recently, we have thunder storms and we almost had to miss church. I was upset and I used my paws to pray for no severe weather this week. I also want to make a mention about Sweet Scooter she is the best BFF!

Wow! I wish that you all could see how Beautiful the snow is that made a blanket in Oklahoma. I love the snow but I will not be able to play in it today.
I am home today because I was playing chase on Sunday with my family and I rolled over and I hurt my back a little. Do not worry my fur friends I am a strong big boy. I will get better. I am on meds this week.
I want to thank my sweet girlfriend Scooter for all of her love and patience. I was not on Dogster for over a month because we got locked out of Dogster by accident. I am so sorry and I missed All of you so very Much! I also want to thank Tess and Bentley for all of the sweet treats and pawmails. I really appreciate you all and I am very Grateful for Dogster and all of my true pals. Many of you are so valuable to me as fur friends. I could never be the dog that I am without you as my fur friends. Please pray for the doggies and kitties out there that do not have loving homes. Today is a snowy and cold day in Oklahoma. I pray for no severe weather this week. We are warm and we are all doing fine. We thank you for all of the encouraging words to my best girl Scooter. she was very ill last month but I believe that she Is doing much better. I miss her because she lives in Oregon. We have never met but we are close and have been BFF for many years.
Happy Snow and Happy Tail Waggin to all! Love from your buddy, Rufus
