Everyday Lessons...:)

For all those who don’t know, Rufus is a little golden retriever we adopted a month back. He is the new member of the family and of course the cutest too…

I have always been an ardent animal lover, and it is that love which makes me do a little of things which sound weird to a lot of sensible people. And when it comes to dogs, I am on a different wavelength altogether. I have always had dogs around me. Even as a little kid, my undying love for them was pretty evident to everyone.When I was 1 month old, I preferred playing with the 2 huge dogs my father had rather than the chunks of toys lying in my room.I would spend hours playing with them,sleeping over them,pulling their tails,and irritating them,as they happily obliged. After months of living in the fear of seeing her little daughter play gleefully with the pets,my mom made peace with the fact that it probably runs in the family....and after 30 years of being married to my father…even she finally has it in her…

So, recently when we decided to adopt the little Rufus, family wasn’t too surprised..

And, now that he is around us, there are so many things the little one teaches me on a day to day basis…and some of them kae a lot of sense too.I am sure the lessons are going to continue with each passing day...and more often than not, I shall be mentioning about them.

So,starting today in the series of lessons from Rufus,this post is rightfully named as lessons from Rufus-I



1. There is never a wrong time to eat. Eat to your heart’s content…and still wonder if you missed something.


2.Peas,carrots,apples,oranges,cabbage,capsicum,
make healthy side dishes on a lazy Sunday afternoon!!






3.The best place in the house is the kitchen.
If you settle yourself near the area,

chances are that you will get to eat every hour







4.Bath tubs make great swimming pools. It s all in the mind.














5. Bean bags make lovely beds.
The more the better…!!!















6. Eating grass is fun, digging it is even better.

7. Noisy kids don’t make great company. Kids with football do.







8. Good looks are always attractive, so keep your self groomed even after all the mess you have created around you.



9. Car parking is a fun place to take a walk, you see a lot of things, and you otherwise won’t get a chance to.




10.Cute things you do, may distract people to the extent of accidently banging their heads against the wall. Sometimes, your master could also be one of them.


















11.Women like well behaved men, so every time you cross one, look at her with the cutest expression you can gather, she will surely come and say a sweet hello. She might even come and pat you and tell you how cute you are…. And if it’s really your day, she might as well pick u up and sport a little kiss.

Toonfactory said...

Hahahaha...damn cute...well last lesson is worth learning ;) Rufus looks cute in pics and thats the closest I can go to a Dog or a Pup :) Is he a vegetarian??

Toonfactory said...

PS. I really love the way we Indians call animals 'He' or 'She' unlike those heartless firangs who use 'it' to talk bout them...

santasizing...Fantasizing said...

#Toonfactory:-You finding a dog cute is an achievent in itself...so i take the compliment with a bow:)..
Rufus is a vegetarian...but i give him eggs to maintain his protein intake..:)..
and for the usage of "it"...i some how dont agree with it yaar...he definitely is a male..u should see him behave with pretty girls around:)...he may bark at everyone who comes in his way...but then when its a pretty girl...he makes sure hes at his best behaviour:)..
Definitely Male..isnt it:P

This was even better, especially the dig at how to be a gentleman. I do that everytime, but the girls think I stare at them :D :D
