The Bruno Chronicles...Part 2...Becoming a Country Boy

Guest blogger...Bruno.

I thought you might want to see where I live. They call it the country. It's very different than living in the city. In the city there were sidewalks and streets to cross. I hardly ever got my feet wet and certainly not muddy. I was always at the end of a leash. I don't own a leash any more.

I can go wherever I want, but I never go without my mom or dad. I used to step around puddles, now I go through them. At first, I stayed right on the path, now I pop into the woods every now and then (I don't go too far, though) and I'm learning to like the tall grass. I, am a country boy.
I usually start my morning walk on the path behind my house. Want to come along?
Don't worry, I'll wait for you to catch up. This back road is steep and it's muddy and slippery today. I like that!
You don't have to come in here with me, but it's really fun. Can you see me? You never know what you might find.
Today the find was a little gruesome, but awesome!
Here I am. We've made it all the way to the pond. Yes, this is a pond. It's full of WATER. It took me awhile to figure out that this pond thing can be lots of fun. Be careful though. That water is tricky.
Come on in...the water is fine!
There are sticks to fetch, frogs to chase and lots of mud to play in. I'm a fabulous swimmer. Eat my dust!
Wheee, let's do it again!
After a nice dip, I like to enjoy the fruits of my labor. You'll have to find your own stick!
Are you coming?
Sorry, can't wait, I've got to get home...my mom is calling!

And when they say "it's a dog's life", it's supposed to be a bad thing - clearly not for Bruno! It's great to see a dog having so much fun!

Hey Bruno,
I would love to run with you on that leafy path, but I am a bit of a dry weather fellow (my rib cage is only 2" off the ground and I don't like getting it all wet and muddy). I can hike for a long time, too, even though my legs are about a quarter the length of yours. And swimming, well, I'll leave that up to you - most undignified you know, a hotdog in water. Nice to meet you, your backyard looks amazing. ruff.

True Blue Nana said...

What a sweetie, he looks just like the dog that lives behind us and is basically a neighborhood dog. Every morning he makes his rounds and checks on everybody. Will you give Bruno a hug for me?
