DAM -n- NaBloPoMo Day 20 - A Bit Worse For The Wear

Rufus has been through quite a bit since he was adopted by our family a year and a half ago. Just take a look to the right to get an idea of how clean and fluffy and unruffled he originally was when he showed up at the hospital to keep T-Bear company after his diagnosis.

Since then he's been washed several times, been lost a few times (but always found again, obviously), and has been on a number of family trips and camping (including our Tour of America last summer). His little white shirt, I am certain, will never be white again, the "JDRF" logo is permanently faded off, and he's got a ridge under his chin where T-Bear tucks his forearm to carry him around.
But, Rufus is still around. He still accompanies us when we go places, still shows up here and there around the house, and still sleeps with T-Bear at night. He's a little worse for the wear, but he's still hanging in there.
Some days, I feel kind of like Rufus.
