Bruiser Bruno: My Tenacious & Triumphant Tripawd

Another Amazing Tripawds Three Legged Dog Blog

The Essence of Bruno



  Bruno doing what he does best!


In the summer sun-basking,                                                                    

as he listens to birds singing.

In the cool river, refreshing,

watching Daphne swimming, as he practices his fishing.

 In the sultry evening celebrating,

with a watermelon he’s long been awaiting.

On  dirt road, open-air, country drives he’s contemplating,

his thoughts interrupted by adventures he’s anticipating.

And as I watch him, intently, I am taken;  

enchanted by his essence:

 quiet, gracious, gentle, stoic-fighting, life-loving.

I catch him smirk-

with a devilish grin,

and a twinkle in those cognac eyes.

He takes a deep breath–

 and Thanks God to be Alive!

More from Bruiser Bruno…

Introducing:  “The Incredible” Bruiser Bruno




Who:  The Incredible, Brave, Head-Strong, Bully, Sun-Worshipper.

The lover of: Pizza, LMN (yes, as in Lifetime Movie Network), and long afternoon drives down country roads.


None other than–MY Bruno.

Breed:  American Bulldog

Date of Birth:  January 1, 2005 (7yrs old)

Strengths:   His ability to ask for forgiveness (as he extends his paw-gesturing for a handshake) after he has been ornery, his quiet strength & laid back demeanor, how he has faced adversity time and time again head on.  How he calls on the fighter within him to help him battle illness, when in reality he is nothing but a lover.

Vices: His love affair with food.

Main weaknesses:  PIZZA, Blue Bell Ice Cream- Homemade Vanilla (“The best ice cream in the country!” according to Bruno), any and all of mom’s homemade cooking.

His Current Adversary:  Histiocytic Synovial Cell Sarcoma


*9/8/11- This marked the day that Jeremy, my husband, Bruno, and I were handed the news.  The news that was not only not good news, but that was news which we had clearly not prepared ourselves to entertain.  Lab results, which had been sent to Florida by our local vet, of the biopsy which they had taken from his knee joint identified his condition.  The diagnosis was: synovial cell sarcoma.  All I heard was the word “CANCER.”


Timeline/Back-story leading up to diagnosis:  Coming Soon.

To be Continued…And so, the saga began.
