  1. Ah, I’m flattered you used my book for your Tuesday Word! How cool!

    Ruff is such a fun word. As a kid, and even now, I thought it was hilarious that it makes the same sound as a dog who has one. 🙂

    Fun word, though I never thought it matched the description for some reason. I love the sentence Laura used it in. Just beautiful!
