I Miss Bruno!
Many of you know that I had the world's cutest dog! (Though, some may argue otherwise)! He was cute. That's what kept us from throwing him from our balcony at times. He was also the world's worst dog! When you think of a dog, you should automatically think, "Man's best friend." Bruno was that and our worst enemy as well. He would bite all of the time. All we had to say was, "Bruno, no!" and he'd start growling and bearing his teeth. He hated being told what to do. He was spoiled in every way and I know that is our fault. But, I TRULY LOVED THIS DOG. I have a hard time allowing myself to get attached to people and things but I let myself get completely in love with this dog. It was like an abusive relationship. He would bite, I would cry, we would make up, and it would happen over and over again. Anyway,
he had to be put down last month because he got a herniated disc in his back and was unable to walk. This would not be as big of deal except for the fact that he wouldn't let you touch him to go potty either. Anyway, I didn't have to do it, luckily. His new owners were kind enough to do it and bury him in their nice big yard that Bruno loved.
Anyway, I still hear him sometimes and that's why I had to get this off my chest. I still hear him whining at me to go on a walk. Every time I say the word walk out loud, I think of him. His pictures are all over my house and in every picture of Sean, he's in the background somewhere getting in our business! I MISS HIM. Mike says I have complicated grief and am only remembering the good things but it's hard when they're gone. It's hard to remember the bad.
Anyway, I will never ever ever get another pet of any kind. I know it would be good for Sean. Oh well, he can learn discipline and responsibility elsewhere!
