Behold The Amazing Bruno: Tripawd ‘Track Star’ or ‘Trickster’?


Behold The Amazing Bruno: Tripawd ‘Track Star’ or ‘Trickster’?

I do NOT tell a lie when I say that I was NEVER able to get Bruno to either: run to me upon command, “come” (with ANY sense of urgency) when I called his name, or rush towards me (in any manner which may have ever so slightly resembled a jog) even when lured by tricks and the promise of treats.

The boy was in his own time Zone.

I swear that it wasn’t until Bruno became a tripawd, that we witnessed his most bizarre bursts of energy.

These unannounced bouts Bruno performed would most often catch us completely off guard, leaving us laughing hysterically. We watched him: twisting and turning, spinning, head-faking, leaping, sprinting and even bucking (like a little bronco) every which direction.

And oh, of course, his favorite…TWIRLING! 😉

Bruno performed amazing stunts on three legs he’d never attempted on four!

    This is great, Maricela! Anyone thinking their dog will be turned into an invalid after amputation should be required to watch this!

    I know you miss him terribly, but I’m so glad you are finding the jewels buried in the sadness. There are more, I promise.

      Although you can’t see me ; I want you to close your eyes,and feel me, as I reach out my paw to hold your hand. This is your son, Bruno, thanking you for all the love and effort you put towards giving me the best life ever. I know in my heart that- I WAS, and AM STILL, LOVED! I couldn’t have wished for a better dad.

      Thank you for continuing to honor my spirit and memory each and every day. I fought and braved the battle against cancer for far longer than drs anticipated. I would have stayed with you all and Daphne forever.

      Know- that it is awesome on the other side. And, that we will meet again.
      Know -that just as your love Lives within me, that I am ALWAYS with you. And, that I am never far.

      Love & (fish) kisses,
      Your Boy, “Spirit” Bruno

  • 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 […]

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.
