Honoring Bruno

Today marks 1 month since we said goodbye to our boy Bruno. We just received his urn, and I was more than pleased with the final product. It is the place he will rest until we take our annual trip to the Buffalo River, where we will spread some of his ashes. I also always carry a part of him with me, close to my heart, in this beautiful cremation pendant. It gives me a sense of comfort and peace during this period of grieving.

We miss you Bruno!

Golden Eyes
In Loving Memory.

When golden eyes no longer glow,
and we both know it’s time to go,

Don’t look at me with eyes so sad,
but think of better times we had,

When sunlight did upon us shine,
and happy days were yours and mine,

And through the grass we both did run,
and on our backs we felt the sun,

Think not of this dark final hour,
think not of when our lives turned sour,

Think not of hopelessness and pain,
but think of joy and laugh again,

For in that final act of love,
you released me to heaven above,

Where finally from pain I’m free,
where one day you will join with me,

Where together again we will rejoice,
and you and I as with one voice,

Will in perfect harmony sing,
of the joy and pain that love can bring,

And remember me just as I will,
always think of you until,

At last again I see your face,
grieve not, I am in a better place.

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 will never be gone. He lives in our hearts forever. His picture in my sewing room makes me smile and warms my heart. Pictures in our livingroom of a Christmas we shared with all of us playing in the snow brings back such wonderful memories. There, front and center, are Bruno and Daphne. How blessed we all were to have had the opportunity to share Bruno’s sweetness. May we always be grateful for God’s blessings-the ability to love and be loved.

  2. Such a beautiful pendant and that picture is all Bruno. He obviously knew a very loving family.
    I can’t read the poem without tears 🙁

  3. Gorgeous pendant and that photo is just beautiful.

    Going through these kinds of physical steps that display our deep, unending love are part of the grieving process unfortunately, but they do help. I know that your beautiful pendant will give you comfort whenever you feel sad about your boy.
