I like to lick people’s faces. I like to dig. I like to play with old water bottles and I really like the noise that they make. I like to swim in lakes and bays... And I like to eat rocks."

Hi, my name is Rufus and I am a dog. To be honest, I never wanted to be a writer. I always just wanted to be me, which I have always found very easy and also fun. Being me, I like doing the things that I like to do. For instance, I like to lick people’s faces. I like to dig. I like to play with old water bottles and I really like the noise that they make. I like to swim in lakes and bays (but not in oceans or pools). And I like to eat rocks.

 

As I started writing, I found that I liked that, too, and that I also had a lot to say, mostly about sleeping, food, and the people and places that I love. You’ll see that I occasionally write about these things on my mom’s blog. I hope to make money off it one day, although I don’t know what money is or how it could possibly make me happier than I am right now, sleeping on my favorite blue velvet chair watching my mom make my breakfast, which consists of raw meat, steamed broccoli stems, and rehydrated vegetables—but that’s another story.
