Today Rufus celebrates 8 wonderful years of life. My adorable red regal smooth miniature dachshund Rufus was whelped on this day and changed my world forever. Rufus has served as my motivation to spearhead LA Doxies, our local monthly meetup group now in its 8 year as well. He is also the inspiration for the newly formed global nonprofit Dachshund Outreach Giving and Socialization (DOGS) dedicated to educating our doxie loving community at large on matters of health, diet and the supreme importance of regular socialization.
Rufus has enriched my life beyond anything I could have ever imagined. I love you Rufus, and I trust this is only one of many more still to come. Happy Birthday Rufus!!!
