Ruffy the Scruffy Terrier Rules the Roost

Here's Ruffy! Our 2 yr old terrier mix (Cairn and Yorkie). We've had him for 2 years now, and I can assure him this is his forever home, as we're hooked on him and all his cute antics! He's our little "Pound Puppy". Two year ago, on a wet Tuesday in February, he became famous in San Jose! He got his name and "mug" in the San Jose Mercury News!

Just wanted to remind everyone what a special and famous dog we have!!! Oh it's not that. It's all the fun Bruce and I have taking him for walks, to the doggy park, arguing over how deep under the covers he's allowed....("Just so he's not on the sheets!!" says Bruce)
