Meet Rufus The Sleeping Dog Turned Model By His Creative Owner

Meet Rufus The Sleeping Dog Turned Model By His Creative Owner

Pharaoh Hounds are one of the oldest breeds of domesticated dogs available, and are best suited to experienced dog owners. Originating in Malta where they were bred to hunt rabbits, Pharaoh Hounds like Rufus can run up to 30 miles per hour and have been known to jump more than six feet in the air.

Rufus is as rambunctious as his breed would suggest, which his owner, Sara Rehnmark, model, actress, dog photographer and hit blogger of Raising The Ruff, can attest to.

“He’s a funny dog that smiles on command (and when he’s happy), enjoys having spaz-outs,” she says. But he can also often be found “Playing at the beach and sleeping.”

Rufus receives at least two long walks a day and numerous hours of playtime, so it’s no surprise that when he finally falls asleep, he’s out like a light. That’s when Sara’s fun starts.

“I think my dog is hilarious,” Sara says. “He’s been a goofball ever since he was a puppy. I take pictures and videos of Rufus because he cracks me up and makes me smile!!! I hope he’ll crack you up too.”

That’s right! She regularly dresses Rufus up as an adventurer while he takes his naps, and it’s as hilarious as it sounds.

Rufus is about to go on some seriously intense adventures: look how many maps and brochures he has!

                          10 Websites To Learn Something New In 30 Minutes A Day

                          Learning something new is always an exciting endeavour to commence. The problem is that most of us get wrapped up in busy distractions throughout the day so that we can never find the time to learn the new skill we want.

                          What’s worse is that some of us spend hours learning this new skill only to give up after a few months, which is precious time that goes down the toilet.

                          Luckily, there’s a better solution.

                          Instead of using our time to sit through long lectures and lengthy video courses, we can take advantage of all the amazing websites that can help us learn a new skill in 30 minutes or less.
