As volunteers attempted to pack the remaining Christmas Stockings for the Troops Rufus insisted on helping! I told him several times we did not need his help, but he would not leave the box alone. Finally I told him “There is nothing for you in that box. Please leave it alone.” And in true Rufus fashion he threw himself on the floor and had a meltdown that I would not let him help. About an hour later as we unpacked the box someone had left dog treats in the bottom of the box for him! The look on his face could only be described as “I told you that box was for me!”
We are busy shipping the last of the Christmas Care Packages for Troops serving overseas. Our local news station called last week and wanted to pop over to feature us on a segment. Normal people would immediately say “Yes!” I had to call the dog walker to make sure she could come and take Rufus and Bailey. Luckily she was available and as the newscaster was walking through the door Rufus and Bailey were heading down the street with instructions to not come back home until I called. There is no where at this house or on our property that you can’t hear Rufus and we couldn’t have background noise during the interview.
Riley stayed at the house to help. He didn’t want to be on camera, but he sat quietly and watched everyone move about! The link to the story is below. It was the quietest this house has been in years…
Just another day trying to work from home, referee the two legged, corral the four legged, and run a charity!
