Dear Reufus: Yeur Question Answered

Ebbery so often I amb asked a question
by email or by comment
or sum times in the fur, and...
I fink Yeu all know how much
I deu lubbs teu answer questions,
so thiss here iss the first ob
My New Regular Butt Okayshunnal Feature
Dear Reufus: Yeur Question Answered

Teudays Question iss...
Reufus, How did Yeu get yeur name?
And what deus it mean?

I whas named abter
My Grandpaw
My Mom's Daddy.
 Grandpaw's real name iss Charles,
butt his nickname wif his child hood friends
[and he maintained them all his life]
iss Rufus.

Many deu naught know...
butt my adobtion contrack whas signed by boaf
My the Mom and the Bleu.
Bleu blessed my name...
My the Mom iss a former steudent ob Latin.
She juss deus lubbs it.
And in Latin,
Reufus means "red headed".


Yeu might haff all so heard ob
Canis Rufus
what iss a reddish-gray wolf
ob souf western Norf America.
Ob course,
many people teuday fink
"Rufus" means silly.
I amb quite proud ob
My Joy Fur Life.

Deu Yeu remember
in the moobie,
Nebber Been Kissed
Rufus means
hib, cool, awesum and fun,
and I fink whee can all a gree...
My name fits Me.
- - - - -
While deuing my research,
I did come a cross these fun tid bits from
The Meaning of Names:

My Past Life
"You were a female in your last earthly incarnation.
*Ebbery one wheu knew My Angel Sister Comet
and knows me now, says
I am Comet reincarnated.*

Your brief psychological profile in that past life
Inquisitive, inventive,
liked to get to the very bottom of things
and to rummage in books.
*I all so like teu ETT books.*

Lessons that your last past life brought to present
There is the invisible connection
between material and spiritual world.
Your lesson -
to search, to find and to use this bridge.
*My Bridge Connections are strong.*

And now I whill ask fur more ob yeur questions,
fearing that Yeu whill be sorry Yeu asked...

[I whas naught blessed wif brebity.]


  1. Don't furget the shared body experience with a certain GR in PAWSylvania!

  2. That's totally Reufus. I loved that movie. I love your name, and I am looking forward to the rest of the series!!

  3. Weu Heu, Reufus!

    Many long years ago there was a band from Chicago named Rufus and they had many albums of rocking and rolling. One album was called
    "Rufusized" and I think of that almost every time I read your blog. What do you think of that? Do you know this band? Did you ever hear of Chaka Kahn who sang with them?

  4. Reufus,

    We learned so much tonight our collective heads hurt. Did you know the name Reufus is also in the Bible.
    In the Apostle Paul's letter to the church in Rome he said;

    Romans 16:13

    Greet Rufus, chosen in the Lord, and his mother, who has been a mother to me, too.

    Though it's not spelled the same, we are sure Paul wanted the name to be included.

    Love Ya,

    Hamish & Sophie

  5. Reufus great name for a great dog. Have a lovely Sunday.

  7. We always thought you were named Reufus because it fit so well with Bleu!


  8. Hmmm, a question. Little Man, how would you feel about having a brofur or sisfur and how close do you think your the Mom is to making such a monumental decision? Or - is being an only child more suitable to your lifestyle and that of your the Mom?

  9. WOW! Reufus you are one smart doggy!
