Recently, Michelle Stafford announced a joyous comeback. “So,” she explained, “I used to do this thing called Days of Fun. It would be 25 Days of Fun or 15 Days of Fun. I would change the time on it.

“Anybody who has followed me for at least the last eight years knows what I’m talking about,” she added. “For whatever days I say, you do one thing that day that’s ‘fun’ for you and post it and use the hashtag with it.”

The Young & Restless leading lady did just that on October 17, and the photo definitely qualified for best in show. “This new family member of ours — Rufus — is wild and crazy,” she captioned a shot of the pawsome pooch who now shares a home with the actress and her kids, Natalia and Jameson. “He has already dug up all of our flowers in the front. He lays down on his pee-pee pads and pees on the wood floor. He jumps on my white sofa with his muddy paws. He thinks our hands are chew toys, but… ”

And you knew there would be a happy “but,” didn’t you? “We love him so much!” Phyllis’ portrayer went on. “He has added so much life to our home!”
