He Was Everything. Rufus

by Glenn O'connor

His tail wagged, my heart wagged with it, his eyes full of joy, his fur was my blanket, his little feet dashed behind me, he caught the ball, brought it back, something my friends couldn't do without messing up.

God decided it was time for him to go,but in my mind and heart, he did not go, he stayed, he never left, his body may not be here, but he didn't disappear.

My dog Rufus, he was small, but his heart was big.

Rufus
by: Stephanie

Ohhhh! He was so cute and playful. My Spot didn't care too much to fetch (too busy digging holes in the ground). :0) But he kept me company, just sitting by my side.

I'm so sorry about your loss. I feel your pain. May God forever Bless You.

My heartfelt sympathies on the loss of your wonderful dog, Rufus. He was such a cute-looking fellow with lots of energy. I'm sure you gave Rufus your best and in turn he reciprocated. May his memory live on with you.
