I created this blog to help take away Ruff days with the smile only a dog can give you.   I have 16 year old golden retriever (Scooby) and a rescue eight year old  Shar Pei (Rice).  This Christmas my family rescued a 14 week golden retriever (Maverick).  He was left outside a veterinarian’s office with parvo to die.

Thank you for visiting!

    A fellow dog lover! Fabulous photos to get the feel-good neurotransmitters flowing…
    I stopped by to thank you for visiting my blog and took a break enjoying your posts and photos.

  4. Thanks for stopping by.
    I love all the pictures, awesome!! How wonderful you were there for Maverick 🙂

  5. Thanks! I hope I can really make a difference! Adopt!!!

  6. Hai… Thank you for visiting my site.
    your pictures are so awesome..

  7. Hi, thank you for following my blog!

    • Does your blog have a contact page? I’m haivng trouble locating it but, I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.

  8. Dear No Ruff… I saw you came by & enjoyed what I wrote today enough to hit the Follow, so I came by to say thanks, I’m glad you enjoyed it. Once I looked at your home page, I also signed up to hear when you post, as I’ve been a dog/cat/almost any creature friend all my life.

    One of my earliest memories is holding on to our old long haired mutt named Butch (a female), toddling beside her as she patiently taught me to walk. Just this past November, my old friend Noah, 17 & 1/2 years old grew too weak, and had to give up the ghost. It was hard, but a time comes to all of us, and we had almost 17 years together; he was 10 months when we got him from the Humane Society shelter the day before he would have been put down. He showed us his appreciation with a lifetime of loyalty and love.

    ….anywho, I’m tearing up, so I’ll just say, I’ll be back. I hope you continue to enjoy my stuff ( er, work….); I post every day, for 198 days straight now on this site, and elsewhere before that. I’ve got a lot of stuff that has to come out of my head, before it sends my angst level through the roof. So, one might say it’s my daily prophylaxis, or medicine, if you will, against the assaults of mental illness that otherwise would ensue…. take care out there…. whether they’re watching you or not, it’s a dangerous world out there.

    I’ll be back….

  16. We had a great dane for 7 years. She was amazing. Your pictures are sweet and your commitment to rescue is important.

  17. I Hope this is OK with you, I would like to share a Resue’s Poem with you and all your friends:

    The Meaning of Rescue

    Now that I’m home, bathed, settled and fed,
    All nicely tucked in my warm bed,
    I’d like to open my baggage lest I forget.
    There is so much to carry
    So much to forget

    Hmm yes, there it is, right on top:
    Let’s unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss
    And there by my leash hides Fear and Shame.
    As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave
    I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain.

    I loved them, the others, the ones who left me,
    But I wasn’t good enough for they didn’t want me.
    Will you add to my baggage?
    Will you help me unpack?
    Or will you just look at my things and take me right back?

    Do you have the time to help me unpack?
    To put away my baggage,
    To never repack?
    I pray that you do – I’m so tired you see,
    But I do come with baggage,
    Will you still want me?

    • Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog proaftlm are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another proaftlm. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good proaftlm.

  23. Very nice blog – cute pictures! Have a great day,


  24. I love the concept of this blog – and the work you’re doing to rescue dogs in need of shelter. The world needs more people like you!

  29. Hi – nice to ‘meet’ you! As I’m allergic to dogs we have chickens which we have found to be lots of fun – maybe one day my little boy will get his longed for pup but for now we’re working on training chooks and loving it! Rebecca @ littleaussies.com.au

  30. I never knew how emotional I would get over losing a pet until I did. For now I have an imaginary dog named Murray. He is an Irish Setter & he gets blamed when anyone in my house farts or breaks something. Someday he will be real.
    Nice to see you’re following rubberchickendinner. Tell Scooby to enter some slam poetry, would ya?

  38. Too cute! My Dad’s Golden is 13 right now!

  39. hello. Thanks for dropping by and following my little blog. As a newbie dog owner it’s all a bit bewildering and exciting – and scary. I’ll be checking in regularly here for a look at soem of your cute photos and stories. Love your puppy picture.

  40. So jealous – not in a position to have a dog at the moment but my parents bought a golden retriever / lab cross the year I was born which was a constant companion until I was 16. He was my first real experience of the emptiness when a friend dies.

  41. Hi NRD – Thanks for checking out my Nap a Day blog. Your photos are pretty darned heartwarming!

  42. Thank you for such a BEAUTIFUL blog!

  43. Thank you for visiting my “recently created” blog. It’s “official set up” and new posts will be added shortly!

  45. Very lucky doggies to have you as their person.

  46. I love dogs!! What a fun idea for a blog! 😀

  47. I think the best cartoon I ever saw was Stephen Speilberg’s short called “The Family Dog” I could not stop laughing at all the memories it brought back … Great blog !

  48. great pics..I had to put my Golden down last year at the age of 18.5 when she developed renal failure.
    she was still running around at times which caused many people to stop us on
    the street and comment 🙂 Such unconditional love we receive from dogs.

  49. Hi just wanted to say thanks for following my blog….I hope I won’t disappoint although I’m having trouble finding time at the moment. I love your photos and shall follow !!

  50. Thanks for following redeemedandredirected! Loved your pics!

  51. Thank you for following my blog. I liked your pictures and see that you are passionate about dogs. Awesome. We have a 4 year old yorkiepoo and she is a sweetheart and makes us smile…thanks!

  52. Love the photos! I just wanted to thank you for signing up to follow my blog!

    By the way, our dog, SBD’s. Makes your eyes water!

  53. Thanks for following my blog. It is encouraging when people follow even though it is only half done. Great photos and wonderful that you love rescues, too. I’m sure Rice and Maverick will pay you back many time over just as Scooby probably already has.

  54. hey thanks for liking my post on my blog!
    You got an interesting blog too!.=D

  55. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your pictures of our smaller pals have me hooked. We had a golden retriever for 12 years. A wonderful part of our family. Now we have a rescue of indeterminate breed and much bigger than we expected him to be. But his disposition is just the best. He gets to so to work with us everyday where there is plenty of attention waiting for him. And treats!

  56. ❤ i really love your dogs!!.. I always want to have a Siberian husky!..
    But never got a chance, It's really expensive here in the Philippines.. 🙂 hope to hear more from you!. I'll be reading some of your post later.. 🙂

  57. Thanks for visiting and liking my blog! Now I am off to brighten my day with some of your pictures!

  58. Hi 🙂 I stoped by to say thank you for visiting my blog and for the like and the follow! I’m so glad you did because it led me to your site. I love your blog! But of course, I love my boys (a boxer and a cock a poo). Have a great week!

  59. Delighted to meet you over the air-waves especially to find another great lover of dogs!

  60. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love dogs. I had a Bichon Frise who lived to be 17 years old. I miss him all the time. I will be enjoying the dogs vicariously through your blog.

  61. Thank you for following my blog!
    I LOVE yours! What a great page to stop at for a little dose of sunshine!

  62. Thanks for liking my post. I love your pictures, even though I am not a dog lover myself. However, I have a friend who is and am sending her the link for your blog. I think she will be overjoyed 🙂

  63. Thank you for visiting my blog… it brought me here and what a smile(s) you have given me today! Love all the photos. I had a wonderful yellow lab… Elmooski he lived to be 17 years old. We have a pixie bob now, Ninnie! Animals give so much and ask so little in return! I cannot wait to see what you will share next!

    Thank you for liking my blog – I like yours too! 🙂 cute doggies you have!

  65. Thank you for dropping by and following my blog! So glad I decided to cyberstalk you back! Love your blog and all the amazing photos! Fellow dog lovers are always cool in my book! Keep up the good work! 🙂

  66. so happy you rescue! love the pics!

  67. Thanks for liking my blog. Good work rescuing dogs. Our 16 year-old mutt passed away a year ago.

  68. Hi! Just wanted to thank you for following my blog and to let you know that I’m really touched by what you’re doing for the dogs.

  69. I love goldens! One who’s long gone still holds a special place in my heart. Thank you for caring for these, giving them a life of love.

  70. Hi, thank you for following my blog! I think your blog is amazing, your dogs are beautiful and the fact that they are rescued makes them and you just a little more special. I took home a gorgeous Rottweiler a few years ago, he was nine years old and the owners were going to euthanize him at our clinic if he didn’t get a home! All because they were moving to Australia. I understand circumstances change but honestly he was part of their life for nine years, NINE years, thats nine years of unconditional love and that’s how they repay him. He was an amazing dog, who is now sadly missed. I look forwards to more of your blogs.

  71. Hi thankyou for following our blog! 🙂

  72. Thanks for following my blog. As you can tell I’m a real animal lover. In fact I’m no longer allowed to go to shelters or visit puppies without adult supervision! I have trained all 3 of our dogs to work physical therapy with me. I will enjoy checking out your posts of the dogs.

  73. Many thanks for the Like and Follow! Your photos are gorgeous! What a great way to end a ruff day!

  74. Hi there! Thank you for following “Musings of a Horse Mom.” I have a couple of “ruff” collies if you’re ever looking for a photo 😉 … Your dog-a-day concept is very sweet. I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful posts … Be well, Dorothy 🙂

  75. Wonderful dog pictures! (Wonderful dogs.)

    • Be careful tanikg medical advice from Yahoo Answers.Some of the answers to your last question were bizarre, especially the one about masturbation causing torsion of the testis.One testis larger than the other may be a result of mumps, but you should seek proper medical advice about this in your case.Sperm count tests involve examining a fresh semen sample. They are not expensive as tests go, but obviously require some privacy to produce. Talk to your doctor about this.

  83. This is a really great work! An African/Nigerian proverb says that “A dog never forgets act of kindness and its doer”. Dog are very good and appreciative pets and good friends/companions to human beings, when properly handled.

    You are right! These photos help chase the ruff by bringing on the smiles. Thanks for stopping by My Hmmm Collection and deciding to tag a long.

  85. Thanks for following my blog at readingremy.com!

  86. I appreciate you following my blog! When I clicked on your blog and saw a post that highlighted a picture of a beagle and cat, I was sold. I own an adorable beagle named Rocky Balboa, and I am partial to those dogs. I look forward to seeing your photos to help make my ruff days good!

  87. There is nothing like the presence of an animal to bring contentment and happiness. I am a cashier in a medium-sized hardware store, and while we welcome all dogs, I would say that I see 2-3 each day that I work. I call it puppy-therapy, and it always brings a smile. I will truly enjoy following your blog for puppy-therapy. And I welcome you to my blog. I invite you to go to my Friends page, and tell me and my writers about yourself, and your blog. If you include a URL, my readers will be able to follow your blog as well. Welcome — I’m glad you are a part of the family!

  88. A great idea for a blog. Love the photos and quotes! Thanks for following my blog.

  89. Beautiful dogs! 🙂

  90. Awww…. a blog about dogs! Adorable :3

    I’m not really a hard fan of dogs, but I do like them, and your style of posts are just as adorable as they are. I’d definitely share this to my dog-lover friends.

    Thanks for the like on my page too!

  91. Thanks so much! Your blogg makes me smile. You have to feature greyhounds! Greyhounds are so in need of rescue here in south fl. because of the race tracks!

  92. HooOOOOOOOOOWWWWwwwwLLLLLLLoooooooooo! Welcome to the Pack and thanks for the visit! Cool blog,the photos are awesome and definitely make a ruff day good 🙂 Those last two are soooooo cute!

    Was looking at the full size photos of your own dogs…Maverick is gorgeous and looks wonderful and happy and well recovered from the parvo…and Scooby! He doesn’t look 16 yrs! You must be doing an amazing job with your dogs to keep them so fit and healthy looking at that age 🙂 And Rice looks lovely too, love the name! Met my 1st Shar Pei “in the flesh” so to speak just recently and they are very endearing 🙂

    • They are definitely part of the family. Most mornings the family walks the dogs in a canyon where they can run free for 45 minutes before school.

      • No wonder they all look so contented and happy, they are all obviously having a great life with you and your family. And being allowed to run free and be dogs together as a pack will be so much more fulfilling for them 🙂

  93. Oh, please forgive my tardiness in thanking you for recently visiting my blog and deciding to follow it!

    And most importantly, thank you for your taking in these wonderful dogs and–as is obvious–caring for them with all your heart and soul!

    (I have a work associate who is about to get a dog…and I am trying very hard to talk her into getting a shelter/rescued one rather than going to a breeder…)

    • Tell her to look at http://www.petfinder.com. You can get any breed and any age even a puppy.

      • Thank you for that link! I will definitely tell her about it right away!

    • madmarvelgirl Posted on I totally agree about Jean. They were only stnraitg to get at the potential of that character when she died. Both times. (Both times she stayed dead; not talking about other times).I can’t think that I’ve ever drifted away from a story immediately following a character death, but I know that lineups definitely have an affect on my interest in following stories. I say I’m an X-men’ fan, but there are a lot of classic’ stories I haven’t bothered with because they don’t have Scott or Jean in them.

  113. Thank you for reading my blog! I love your quotes and pictures of puppies, though in real life I’m usually resentful towards dogs for barking at me while I run and/or sniffing my crotch.

  114. Hi! Thank you for the follow at http://www.uzairahmad.wordpress.com, and I’m following you too (: All the best!

  116. Glad you rescued Maverick…what a great looking K9! Is that a piece of seaweed in his mouth 🙂 Woof!

  117. Thanks so much for following our blog. We love yours. Your dogs are adorable.

  118. HI! Thank you for stopping my blog. I really like your dog pics & the quotes. I want to copy & paste each one of them. I think that person’s choice of quotes says a lot about the person and I believe that yours show me you are warm-hearted, fun, and loving. You don’t have a German Shorthaired Pointer. I’ll have to send you pics of the one I adopted off the streets a year ago. Literally. He was lost. I found his owners 2 months later on Craigslist & they didn’t want him back. So, he now lives here…in a small condo. This hunting dog full of energy who can run like a horse shares my small space & is super sweet and loving.

  119. This is a great tip particularly to those new to the blogosphere. Brief but very precise info… Many thanks for sharing this one. A must read article!

  161. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest
    authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My blog addresses a lot of the
    same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you are interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!

  162. Hi! It’s National Dog Week and there’s a fun photo campaign that I’d like to share with you. Can you email me when you get a chance?

    Do you need any coding knowledge to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  164. I’d like to find out more? I’d like to find out some additional information.

  165. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a
    comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

    Appreciate it!

  166. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your site.
    You have some really good articles and I think I would be a good asset.
    If you ever want to take some of the load off,
    I’d really like to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back
    to mine. Please blast me an e-mail if interested.
    Thank you!

    What would you suggest in regards to your put up that you
    simply made a few days ago? Any positive?

  168. Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it very hard to set up your own blog?

    I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers

  169. I appreciate, cause I discovered exactly what I used to be looking for.
    You’ve ended my four day lengthy hunt! God Bless you man. Have a great day.
