    Ditto. That last photo is amazing. If you haven’t already done so you should enter that it in the 2013 Tripawds calendar. Absolutely gorgeous. Stunning photography.

      Aww. Thanks for the compliment. I will definitely submit his photo this year.

      I so desperately wanted to last year, however he was barely recovering and I missed my window of opportunity. I think that last year, I wanted to submit his photo more as a way to pay tribute to him as a tripawd (uncertain as to what this journey truly held in store for us and unaware of the meaning I’d find along the way).

      This year however, I hope that Bruno’s spirit will speak to others, through his picture, and invigorate them with a renewed sense of hope and possibility.

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.
