A Hot Summer in Oklahoma

May 29th 2012 2:48 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

Boy oh Boy...it is already very hot in Oklahoma! Today was 94 and kind of humid. It's so hot..that I want a swimming pool. I used to have a big blue one with a slide and I LOVED it. I used to get into trouble for trying to run and jump into in it. I would start out fast and run up the side. My family would get upset because they thought that I might hurt myself. I probably would have so I am glad that they are very protective over me and my health. I am an inside doggie but I sure do pray and think of those pups and kitties outside.
I want to share a short story with you: My mom and I leave out water for the stray dog...that we sort of adopted. She is a sweetheart of an older dog. We call her Lola (after the the Flintstones cartoon)
We love having her out here with us because she keeps the unwanted critters out of our yard. We always check on her in the morning and at night. We are very thankful for Lola and her friendship. Lola makes the summer cooler and we love hanging out with her. I look forward to sharing her picture with all of you. She is like a Big sister to me. We are not sure of her breed. She loves blue, she loves the water sprinkler, and she loves to eat meatloaf. I hope that all of my friends on Dogster will welcome her. Anyway,
to all of the pups and kitties Please have a Safe and COOL SUMMER!
Woof! Woof! Tail WAGS to you.
Rufus

 

Unkown poet ( I love this poem my mom found on the computer- today.

Why own a dog? There's a danger you know,
You can't own just one, for the craving will grow.
There's no doubt they're addictive, wherein lies the danger.
While living with lots, you'll grow poorer and stranger.

One dog is no trouble, and two are so funny.
The third one is easy, the fourth one's a honey.
The fifth one's delightful, the sixth one's a breeze,
You find you can live with a houseful of ease.

So how 'bout another? Would you really dare?
They're really quite easy but, oh, Lord the hair!
With dogs on the sofa and dogs on the bed,
And crates in the kitchen, it's no bother, you've said.

They're really no trouble, their manners are great.
What's one more dog and just one more crate?
The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty,
The floor is all footprints, the furniture dusty.

The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care?
Who minds a few noseprints and a little more hair?
So let's keep a puppy, you can always find room,
And a little more time for the dust cloth and broom.

There's hardly a limit to the dogs you can add,
The thought of a cutback sure makes you sad.
Each one is so special, so useful, so funny.
The vet and food bills grows larger, you owe BIG money.

Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay,
Except other "dog folks" who live the same way.
Your lawn has now died, and your shrubs are dead too,
But your weekends are busy, you're off with your crew.

There's dog food and vitamins, training and shots.
And entries and travel and motels which cost lots.
Is it worth it you wonder? Are you caught in a trap?
Then that favorite one comes and climbs in your lap.

His look says you're special and you know that you will
Keep all of the critters in spite of the bill.
Some just for showing and some just to breed.
And some just for loving, they all fill a need.

God, winter's a hassle, the dogs hate it too.
But they must have their walks though they're numb and your blue.
Late evening is awful, you scream and you shout
At the dogs on the sofa who refuse to go out.

The dogs and the dog shows, the travel, the thrills,
The work and the worry, the pressure, the bills.
The whole thing seems worth it, the dogs are your life.
They're charming and funny and offset the strife.

Your life-style has changed. Things won't be the same.
Yes, those dogs are addictive and so is the dog game.

Hu! Fur Pals! Would you Please welcome Lola my fur sister. We are not sure what breed she is but we hope that someone on Dogster can help us identify her. She is adorable and shares the lawn with no one, she loves the outdoors, she loves the sprinklers and her cozy new home. she gets ice cold drinks and she get snow cones on really hot Oklahoma days. We love her, We are so proud to finally introduce her to the world. Lola is amazing with small children and she is so kind to others. she loves to Play with Rufus...and she is also still looking for Bob Briarwood the cat.,(he has been missing since early Spring)
So please welcome Lola, she is shy but always smiling and happy to be here in Oklahoma and here at Rufus Allen home. She is a nice addition to the family. We Spoil her!!!

 

Recent tv interview

We had a few issues and concerns at our local park where I run and my mom walks/runs.
My mom was on tv and these are just a few things that she said.
1. Try to run or walk with YOUR Dog and or a partner.
2. Tell someone where you are going and when you plan to return.
3. Carry a cell phone with you while running or walking.
4. Wear comfortable athletic shoes, apparel, and you may use a hat to block the sun in the summer.
5. If you plan to run or walk at dusk or in the evening. Wear brightly colored clothing and try to wear something reflective so that other trail users can see you easily.
6. It is best if you do not use headphones but if you need to listen to music keep the volume low enough to hear others that are using the trails.
