Rudy quickly set the standard for 'immaculate grooming'. His manicured dewclaws, the way he constantly floofed his tail in all directions and the gentlemanly tossing of his mane made up us all stand on our paws and take note. Being the generous gentleman that Rudy is, he offered to help Pals learn the art of "Floofing". This was an instant success ! Rudy's dream of running his own Spa & Beautification Salon was now in motion.

Finally I agreed to try Rudy's signature "Tuna & Oatmeal Spa Bath". Warmed tuna, with just softened oatmeal, both moisturized and exfoliated me at the same time, while calming me with the heady aroma of tuna.! And when I got peckish, it was mighty tasty too. I couldn't wait to tell everyone about Rudy's new venture.

Rudy's Spa is the place to be for both young and old Pals. Bookings are essential. We sip special RB drinks get pampered ! We are truly blessed to have Rudy, but more than anything, to have him as a friend. Rudy is a great guy, full of surprises ! Here are some Rudy facts from before he arrived OTRB:
Rudy tried farming, but it was murder on his hair!
He then tried music, but the combination of Saxaphone and Yoga took a toll.....on his mane.
No door is Rudy proof, including fridge doors !
He tried his paw at Theatre, but it took so long to get dressed for each scene. *sigh*
Rudy loves Barktending ! He even has a secret OTRB ingredient for his own Signature drink ! Make sure you try one next time he's Barktending.
Rudy still looks after his sisfur @MaggieTKat and his new little brofur @ParkerSKat, even though he is now OTRB.
This is for Rudy's Mom: Rudy got you this "sippi cup" with one of our Signature Rainbow Bridge songs on it: "Born Free".
Rudy we love you and are proud of all you do ! You are a good friend to many Pals. Our lives are richer for knowing you. You bring us joy and laughter, plus really good hair ! BOL !
