RUBN TOLLEFSON! "Here is one of my favourite pictures of our dog, Rübn! People are always amazed at how gentle this 90+ lb. dog can be - I always say he never meant to get that big because he loves to lay on your lap & sleep right beside you. He is often referred to as "the pony". I like this particular picture because it shows off his eyes that look like he has eyeliner on. He loves having his picture taken - he looks right into the camera & is VERY photogenic (I'm biased, but he is!)
Rübn is 3 years old, but still acts like a puppy - I think that's just his personality & it's just fine with me!
Rübn really likes his 'mom & dad' - my husband Geoff & I - & hates to be in any place where he can't be right next to us. Another endearing quality.
We also have a cat, Neko, who weighs about 11 lbs. Most visitors are initially scared of Rübn, but once they're here for 5 minutes they realize it's actually Neko they need to be afraid of.
Thanks Rubn and Congratulations for being the winner for week 23!(Okay,it's technically week 24 BUT we're the bosses around here so we can can call it whatever we like :) ) Not only are you the first dog I've ever seen
wear look like you're wearing makeup but you've also got one of the coolest dog names out there. Good to hear you still have the puppy in you! Please forward us your snail mail address so we can send you some Lucky Dog Biscuits to beg for with those be-u-tiful eyes!
