Regarding Rufus

August 27, 2009 § 8 Comments

I’ve had a few queries about my dog, since I did put his life on the line yesterday, so I thought I’d introduce him here and say that he is alive, well, and ready to eat whatever scraps fall to the ground today.

This is Rufus (on the right)

These pictures were taken at the Mozza staff Fourth of July party.

I just LOVE parties! (Especially at Nancy's.)

Nancy rented 2 taco trucks to feed the 300 guests: the Koji Korean BBQ taco truck, and the taco truck from Border Grill.

The warring trucks. Rufus is under one of the Koji truck. Eating no doubt.

Rufus had to scrounge for scraps around the Koji truck like his cousins in his ancestral town, Tijuana. But here he is waiting patiently for an authentic Mexican taco of cochinita pibil.

"I'll have the cochinita pibil, por favor."

They say beggars can’t be choosers but Rufus was clearly partial to the real Mexican deal. Like mother, like dog.

"mmm... the pickled onions are what really make it!"

    Of course you have a dog with an amazing palate!

    not to mention a great haircut, and a super smile.

  • Larry Rinehart says:

    If he is a scrapper, how does he keep his slim build? I should have that in my genetics, can it be bottled? and tasty too?

    • carolynncarreno says:

      Why, thanks for noticing, Larry! Rufus is a big runner, especially when squirrels are involved. He also does his daily dogs–both downward and upward facing–several times morning and night. The only time he got a little chubby was in Italy, despite all the runs through the olive groves. All on account of the frutti caduti (that’s “fallen fruit”) around Nancy’s house, where we were living. Apricots, plums, wild peaches; figs were the very worst for the waistline.

      larry i don’t know how rufus tastes! :)

  • Christy Carreño says:

    Rufus is so very, very handsome! And charming. And smart. And hungry.

  • It’s official. I am in love with Rufus, whatever breed he may be and from whatever origin he came. You may drop him off with me for babysitting on those days he wants to sleep and dream amongst the antique cake plates. SWEET FACE!!
