Saturday Sharing: The Reufus Ramblings

I offered Little Reufus a chance to guest host my blog this evening, and I was stunned by his response! I mean, there was excited spinning, shuffling of papers, poses, toys and other things fetched and brought... but no words of communication, at all!

I shouldn't have been so surprised. The Reuf is mostly too busy for words so far in his young life, but that's ok, I'll help him with the narrative!

And so in the great tradition of  Bleulander and Lulander... I present you with Reulander!
Little Big Boy loves his sticks, and like me... he loves the little ones, too!
I love the innocent, curious, sweet look on his face... as he relishes his treasure!
And this is his urgent request for a clue..."say what?"... "what we doing?"..."where are we going???"...
And there's the pensive look, as Reuf processes information.
I really do think he wants to please. You can see that he looks for approval. We are doing our best to challenge him regularly and often, but I know we're not keeping up with his need.
Now, I've got to apologize to The Reuf for violating The Golden Oath of Brotherhood... but I'm posting this 'tinkling' photo. I know, I know. I should be ashamed. And I am... but in the name of really cute tail feathers and pantaloons, I just had to do it! [The Mom shadow is just a bonus!]
The Reufus has EXCELLENT name recognition and response.

Ever wonder what would happen if you had the camera ready and you called, "Reufus Come" from about 25' away???

I didn't think so, but we conducted the experiment anyway. And here is the result: 
Not the fastest shutter speed or the quickest the Mom, but my point is... Reufus is F A S T ! ! !

In fact, the Mom was attempting to make a repair in the backyard... Reuf swept in quickly and took off with the duct tape!
He ripped...
He romped!!!
He settled in for a good chew!!!
And once taken away, Reufus settled for the next best thing...
Plant Matter.
 And that reminds me to tell you...

Twice this past week, Our Little Reufus has quietly maneuvered his way to the mass food storage area... where he feasted, uninterupted... for some time. Out of respect, I've not detailed his gastric upset... but I'll say, I'm grateful to see him grazing on the landscaping again...

From a brother's perspective... the Reuf is a cute cute boy. He's got the coolest, most expressive eyebrows ever... and it won't be long before his clumsy puppy proportions evolve into a very handsome boy!
Until then, I worry just a bit...
Do you think his nose is too large for his little head???
 On behalf of The Reufus, I'm signing out...

It's so good of you to bring the Reuf's message to all of us! He does have quite the expressive face. I wonder if he's heard that getting duck tape near tail feathers is not a good idea...

Little Reufus is so very young yet so we can understand his inability to correctly blog; however, we know that with your guidance, the Bleu, he will be blogging by the time he has his 2nd birthday.

And, no, we do not think that his nose is too large - it looks 'just right'.

Hi ya Bleu and Reufus! What fun to hear more about you Reufus, thru the writings of the Bleu! Great stuffs! Especially love the action shot with the duct tape! Looked like a fun game!

Sweet hugs,
Sierra Rose

Wow, The Reu is quite the connoisseur. After all, we expect that the duct tape was made in China. And we could barely see it in his mouth prior to eating plants. Thus, he had (drum roll please) - Peeking Duct and Sprouts (rim shot please).

We think the Bleu has taken a huge liking to the Reu:) He is an adorable growing puppy and yes, he will soon be a handsome hunk. Thanks for sharing a little more about your new pal.

Pee Ess, Reu may not say much, but funny, our word verification is "spoke".

I love the snooter shots!

I think Reufus and Monty are from the same litter - they are so similar in so many ways!

Oh my gosh, the look in that Reuf's eyes as he romps around with your duct tape is just that pure puppy happiness!!! Enjoy your little terror! :)
