7 Days Without Bruno Makes One WEAK

7 Days Without Bruno Makes One WEAK

How is it possible that seven days go by so fast, but each of those seven days seemed to drag on forever? How is is possible that I can be crying and laughing at the same time when I think of Bruno? Or that I feel that I have a huge gaping hole in my heart, yet my heart is also full of warm loving memories he left behind?

A week has passed and I have had much time to reflect. I’ve thought over and over about the final moments and the days leading up to our goodbye. I know now that it was both his time and that it was also the right time. How peacefully my boy went.

I can only imagine the fun he is having with all the other tripawds which preceded him in crossing rainbow bridge. And so, If heaven is our version of paradise, then I can only imagine he is surrounded and able to enjoy all those things he loved.

Bruno loved…

Open air drives down long country roads,
Homemade meals hot from the stove,
Fishing any river and catching some rays,
As well as watching LMN, in bed, on lazy days.

Christmas tree lights were his favorite during the season,
Chomping sticks, eating grass, & smelling flowers he found mighty pleasin’.
Daphne, a handful, was always his girl,
And trips to The Buffalo River inspired him to twirl.


We love and miss you Bruno!

Hi. I am Bruiser Bruno, a 7 yr. old American Bulldog who has lived the most wonderful life. Currently, I reside in beautiful NW Arkansas (alongside my soulmate and bestgirl, Daphne, and our four handsome and rambuncuous boys) with my wonderful parents, JD and Maricela. We all moved to Arkansas about three and a half years ago.But honestly, I would have to say that I consider myself a true Texan at heart- since that's where I mostly grew up. Yee-Haw! I am however originally from California. What can I say, I like to travel. **Bruno's spirit was set free, as he crossed over Rainbow Bridge, on 12/31/12. He faced his battle with cancer stoicly & with awe-inspiring courage. No matter how bumpy the ride, it was one which I could have stayed on forever. I am grateful for "EVERY" moment I was lucky enough to have shared with him.

  1. Bruno looked like such a handsome and special boy! I’m so sorry for your loss. Wishing you happy memories of your Bruno in 2013!

  2. I still remember those first 2 weeks after Magnum died. The worst 2 weeks of my life.
    It does get better but oh so slowly and for each of us the grief journey is as unique as the special bond we have with our beautiful dogs.
    They are beautiful photos showing how much Bruno loved and “lived”. And I love the poem!
    Hang in there.

  3. Oh Bruno, you will always be so loved. This is one of the most beautiful posts about your life and your pack, it’s wonderful.

    Yes, it’s possible to feel all of those things Mom. Sometimes you question your sanity, but in the end it’s clear that the love that you shared is stronger than the days that will pass since he earned his wings. Love never dies.
