  • On This Day…
    On This Day… On this day, a year ago, I was forced to set you free You left us for a better place where whole again you’d be. It felt as though my heart had been ripped out and I struggled to take a breath Up to then I’d never experienced quite as big a […]
  • Missing You
    Bruno was so much more than a pet or even a dog, at least, to me. His soul and essence brought a sense of tranquility into my life. His cognac- colored eyes never failed to “get me”, and I especially loved the flecks of amber and gold that shown (in his barely squinting eyes) as […]
  • Feels Like Home
    Today, marks four months since I last saw my sweet boy’s face and caressed his soft spotted ears. Some days are harder than others, but the memories help fill the void of his absence when the emptiness feels like more than I can handle. One thing that’s for sure is that he gave me memories […]
  • You Would’ve Loved a Day Like This
    You Would’ve Loved a Day Like This You Would’ve Loved a Day Like This A day where the sun is shining brightly And the grass is long, soft, and green A day in which the breeze blows gently And we say, “hello” to Spring. I think to myself, “You Would’ve Loved a Day Like This.” […]

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.

Who?

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.
