First timer on a pet forum. Be gentle please! I am a mommy to a 12 yr old fur baby named Rum Tum Tugger, though I like to call him Poodle ;-) . Rum Tum found me in 2000 and my life has never been the same since. Though most would tell you that he is mean, I find his grumpy man personality pretty humorous. I guess it's true that a mother's love is blind.
He is a tough little trooper and though not loved by many, he is well loved by one. He prefers to be an only child and as such, has been spoiled. He is known at his vet's office as "fractous" and has had previous vets asked to not bring him again. I like to think that they just couldn't handle his awesomeness.
Most recently, he has had quite a bit of trauma and the effects of it have aged him quite a bit. But despite it all, he keeps on trucking and spreads his personal brand of charm that makes him, in my eyes, the best friend a girl could have.
