We all get tired of life sometimes, most times, all the time... We forget to live. Having a dog changed all that for me.

We as a family decided to get a dog. Three years ago Bruno came into our lives. Bruno is half Jack Russell, half Shihtzu so basically he's a Jackshit! That's really why we got him. Richard thought it would be funny when we get asked what breed he is!

Guess where I buried the bone mum? Aren't you so proud of me?

Lily told us we should have gotten a Bullshit.. Can you guess what mix breed that would be?

Bruno had a lovely temperament when he was a pup. He was so cute and socialised well. All that changed when I became a childminder. Bruno got really jealous and protective and that somehow led him to become anxious and aggressive. We do get frustrated at times but we love him nevertheless. He is family after all!

I had a fancy dress party for my 50th and this was Bruno in his outfit. Isn't he amazing?... hehe

He's so clever and can do so many tricks, thanks to You Tube! I am not able to show you because I don't know how to upload videos! aaaarrrghhhhhh!

Even though he's a little $h!+ and have pulled my family in different directions because suddenly everyone's a dog whisperer, I have him to thank for tearing me away from my chores and to remember what living is about.

The pond at Cannon Hill Common

If not for Bruno, I wouldn't have met people within my community. If not for Bruno I would not have known we have a beautiful park near where we live. If not for Bruno we would not have visited other parks to appreciate beauty around us.

Thank you Bruno!

Thanks @davidke20! What does #dpet mean? This is so new to me! 😰


Decentralized. Talk about pet. You may click on the tag and find out others how they get curated. I don't use it because I already have little humans at home which I can't afford to take my eyes off for one second or the house will be turned around.😩

Thank you for your advise @davidke20! Much appreciated! Btw I am a childminder and have little humans at home too so I know exactly how you feel!

Cannot. Resist. Cuteness. Reee.

Pets are like that - they have nothing to worry about so they know about living more than any of us do :) glad that your puppy reminded you on what living is really about.
