Christmas Tree facts

Mom and my human sister have been taking Saturday afternoons to read about early Christmas traditions:
they wanted to share with all:
I love the pretty Christmas tree. I have been hiding my treats and bones under ours. I love it when the lights are are..they really sparkle and make my black coat look so shiny..i can see where i hid my bones too!
Here is one fact:
Christmas trees have a long and exciting history. During the pre-Christian era, people and tribes often had holy groves and trees where they sacrificed to the gods. The trees were most often oak or ash, and they symbolized a connection between heaven and earth. Similar ideas are found in the Old Testament – trees symbolized wisdom and life.

Merry Christmas to all of my fur friends and Happy New Year too!
Love and lots of tail wags

My beloved University of Oklahoma Sooners Football team just lost their first game of the season! We lost to the Mizzou Tigers... so now we are 6-1. (Ugh!) My family was all stressed out about that terrible loss! I told mom to dust it off and get ready for the next game! My family is so competitive..(grr)The whole thing about Football games still perplexes me!
I am just dog who was named after a former Sooner Football I guess that i am supposed to be jumping around and screaming for these guys in red & white tights, big shoulders, and big metal/plastic hats.... I think most of the players are all running down a nice big green lawn...which I would love to go run and play on that big green lawn....yes...yes
I have to "Root for my Sooners for the next couple of weekends! The Sooners play the Rival team in Okla. It's another college team called the Oklahoma State Cowboys. I thing that we play in late November.
I really hope the outcome is good! It will affect the Thanksgiving weekend! the better the outcome of the Bedlam game! More treats, kisses, and play time for me. So here's to the Sooners! Boomer Sooner!! Go Team!
Love, Rufus

Thankful for the Best Vet and Veterinary Surgeon Care in the- World! Edmond, Oklahoma

I wanted to share some good news about my Vet. Dr. Matt McQuade at Kickingbird Animal Clinic. I wanted to tell everyone that he really saved my life. He put me back on a good road to recovery before and after my back surgery. In December 5,2009. My New Vet Dr. Matt McQuade discovered that i was pretty sore and I had a limp right back foot. I was at the Vet for my regular Annual Booster and Exam, Heartworm Test, and Rabies shot. However,when I was at the Vet's office. I skampered and whined in pain..little pain at the time. But my Dad and the Vet noticed my actions. Of course, My mom said yes that i had not been pooping like i used to. They immediately took an Xray. It was worth every penny. I needed to have Back surgery ASAP!! This surgery is pretty common in us little dachshunds.
Dad,Mom & Dr. Matt McQuade & Dr. "Skip" Tanger made immediate plans for a back surgery in January 2010. I was immediately put on Methocarbanol and Prednisolone for pain.
As most of you know. My surgery was on January 22, 2010.
Day before my Mom's own Father Died (Diabetes) complications.
I was the worst lived week of my Mom's life! But Prayers and Many Many prayers..and 8 Months later. I am totally 100 Percent! I can walk, run, and play and love on my family. But more than anything I wanted to share that My Dad, Vet, Dr. Matt McQuade, & my back surgeon Dr. "Skip" Tanger. Are all to be thanked. I am planning my 9th birthday, One of the presents will be a thank you gift to my Vet! & Surgeon. Thank you Dogster Pals & Friends & the Dogster Website for the prayers. I have pics of my back and cut after the back surgery but mom does not want to post yet.

Happy Fall Season! I am doing good..I am feeling 100 percent. my back surgery was in January almost 7 months ago..but i feel so much better now. I am so thrilled that my dad built me a Really Cool Doggie ramp...for me walk up and down, under doctor's orders that I am not supposed to jump on and off the bed or couch.
I totally miss my Dogster Pals. Without many of you wonderful doggies. I could not be a Happy as I am!
I love when i get pawmails from you all of you.
I think of all of you very often too. Much love and licks and tail wagging.
Woof Rufus
