Rufus is Pop's most treasured possession as he seems to hold the "best & the worst" of all the beags we have known! Rufus was adopted in 1997 from a family that could not contain him thanx to their young children & the fact that he was an escape artist! Thanks to that he became a protege of Duke & took the position of lead hound when Duke died. Nibbler is larger & younger than he is , but Nibbler knows that Rufus is the "elder hound" like Goober & Homer! (Homer is about 4 times larger than Goober)...But Homer still respects his position & knows that I am "the big dawg! :cool2:

(For more info) seek out the book "How to speak dog" by Stanley Coren! It is a great book that explains the body language of dogs & the "mixed-signals" between dogs & cats. (What is interpreted as a "play gesture" between dogs is actually a threat when a cat does it)! (They are "polar-opposites" & it's no wonder that they can be "natural enemies")! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif

Btw, Rufus is like a cross between Charlie Brown & Pig pen! He became addicted to scratching the fur off his hindquarters on 2 of the 3 cedar trees in his yard! Pop has had to install a wire fence around the things! Rufus has no skin condition to explain his weird behaviour...but he REALLY likes scratching his butt on the cedar trees! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif :rolleyes:
