The meltdown is over! We had a service technician at the house installing a satellite dish which means Rufus has to be shuffled from room to room as he is a known runner if the door is open and he doesn’t like people touching the gate. He started the morning in the bedroom with his favorite Two-Legged and then found himself stuck in the game room for several hours. Unlike a “normal dog” he will not calm down and proceeded to bark, whine, and cry for the entire 3 hours. Bailey and Riley hung out on the deck and enjoyed not being stuck in the game room with the the big guy!
The gentleman from the satellite dish company wasn’t sure what the sound coming from the basement was and asked the question we hear almost every day, “What kind of dog is that?” Rufus is a true mutt mixed with Pit bull, tree walker coonhound, boxer, and beagle. When happy he sounds like a boxer. When upset he sounds like a dying sea otter. When mad he howls like a wolf. When sad he cries like a pit bull. How lucky are we to enjoy a morning of “Rufus music!”
Rufus now has his happy face on and is back in bed with his buddy! Rufus is very forgiving so even though he was stuck in the game room as soon as I opened the door he gave me a big kiss and ran upstairs. Growing up I had a beagle that would hold a grudge. You never knew when or how, but she would get you back if she felt she was wronged!
