Happy Birthday Eve Rufus

Tomorrow, Friday, August, 21st Rufus will celebrate sixteen years of life, and we’re so very grateful to achieve this milestone. This time last year, we weren’t sure if Rufus was going to make it another year. Thankfully, Rufus continues to be that sassy sausage hound that can; which we believe is very distinctively dachshund. #DeterminedBreed #StubbornHound #HeIsLeavingWhenHeIsReadyAndNotBefore 😂✌🏼

We wanted to commemorate the occasion somehow, and after a little thought and reflection, it just made sense to observe the historical honor with (another) hardcover photo book. Rufus has been photographed innumerable times so why not curate a collection of our favorites photographs. Initially the book was only intended for us, his immediate pack, but my spouse said, Rufus is not just our precious pup, but he is a canine companion to everyone that has followed his journey since the first photo we shared on the Internet. And in the moment, I was astonished by this sentiment. Rufus is not just my loyal and devoted dachshund, but a friend to everyone who has known him. Rufus has never met a human or hound he didn’t like.

It is our pleasure to announce the debut of our new hardcover book: Rufus’ Super Sweet Sixteen. You can get yours by clicking here: https://www.blurb.com/b/10260561-rufus-super-sweet-sixteen 

Rufus’ Super Sweet Sixteen book

The 50-page book is a modest 7×7 square with 52 unique Rufus images. The book only has one page of copy, and the rest is dedicated to the likeness of everyone’s favorite classic red, regal smooth miniature dachshund named Rufus. It’s a pictorial tribute and testament to a short-legged dog’s long life well-lived.

In the spirit of complete transparency and full disclosure, this is our first time using the self-publishing company Blurb. We did our research and it was between this one and one other, and we feel confident with our choice. Nonetheless, we look forward to your feedback; let us know what you think of the book and the final product. With some success and continued interest from you (our friends), perhaps this will only be the first book of many more to come. Future books might be dedicated to Rufus & Friends, Our Black and Tan Beauty Emily Sue, Lovely Nervous Little Lily Blossom, Marvelous Milo, Dachshund Packs, and more.

Additionally, the book is priced at $57.99; and we worked hard to keep the book affordable for all. Please note all profits will benefit our 501c3 charity Dachshund Outreach Giving and Socialization (DOGS). We haven’t done much fundraising since Rufus got sick, and it is time to get back to work. The need in our community hasn’t diminished, and we hope to return soon and be a resource of help. Note. We will receive $16 for each book sold; a dollar for each year. The rest is simply the cost of production. We had the choice to mark up the book however much we wanted, but as I said, we really wanted this to be a book anyone could buy, if they wanted.

Okay friends. Thank you in advance for the support and for all the birthday well wishes. We have really enjoyed the Countdown to Rufus’ Super Sweet Sixteen on social media. We love you all. Hug them, if you go them. Rufus and his pack will certainly get theirs.

    So happy he is celebrating his 16th. I know what it is like to have a senior with issues & worry that they will not be here for their next birthday or other milestones. He is showing the doxie trait of stubbornness & saying that he has no plans to go anywhere! Go Rufus!!. I am so happy for you!!!
