NOMS Day - Rufus

I'd like you to meet Rufus. Rufus lived in Missouri with his Dad who is an artist. His Dad is friends with my Uncle Doug who used to babysit for us when Mommy and Daddy would go on trips. Rufus came to visit us a few times. Diamond and Rufus were good friends, they liked to play chase in our yard. We thought Rufus was a nice woofie because he never chased us and always had a smile on his face. Here is a photo of Rufus smiling.
Sadly, Rufus went to the Bridge last year. His Daddy was very, very sad. We told him about the Rainbow Bridge and how Rufus would be there waiting for him. Someday we will see Rufus again and maybe we'll let him chase us there!

Or you could chase him. If he's a nice pup he won't mind if you do that.

We are sorry your NOMS friend Rufus went to the rainbow bridge last year. That was nice of you to tell his daddy about it. We hope his daddy felt better after that.

With that smile I am sure Rufus is a very sought after dog at the bridge! But I am very sorry he had to go.
