My Dog Bruce

Our doggie, our buddy died last weekend.  We are all so sad around here. 
My hubs made this silly youtube of Bruce just sitting here sleeping last year.....don't think anything
will be happening in it....he just.....well......sleeps......his favorite pastime.....
He was always around us,  following us like a duck, playing when we played.....sitting on the jacuzzi steps while
we went in......waiting for us by the front window when we came home from things......
Chasing us around while we rode on the quads.....or bikes.....or used the lawn mower.....or the vacuum.... He'd go nuts trying to "bite" the vacuum.....
Running to you when you got home from work.....always ready to play! 
He was always happy to see you.....even if you were a stranger....he was a very friendly little dude....

He loved going on a road trip with us........Once we looked all over the house for him after we got the truck all packed....and we finally found him like this....waiting patiently in the car.  He didn't want to be left behind......
He would hog up all the space in the front seat though.....:D And snore loudly the whole way there.....
Anybody new in the house....he would sniff them up and down.....sometimes he had to mark  his territory....
It wasn't very funny when he did that on the guest bed when my brother came to stay......
He had his own doggie door so he could come and go as he pleased....in rain or snow......

He really loved hanging out at the Bear Lake cabin with us. He loved chasing around the prairie dogs....and the grand kiddos.....
He was Megan's shadow sometimes.....and mine all the time....I miss that.....
We got him after our son, Danny, died in a car accident 7 years ago.  Hugging and petting him helped us feel a little bit better somehow...... Thanks for doing that for us, Brucie.
He hated to miss anything while riding in the car....he would huddle up as close to the conversation as he could get.....
He'd sleep on my bed if I let him.....sometimes I let him.......
And he just did his "thang" most of the time.....snorting.....chasing a ball....knocking over the trashcans looking for a discarded scrap or treat.....watching the birds in our backyard eating from the bird feeders.......
He was sweet....and..... I loved him.....
He used to be Devin's dog....but he gave him to us.....and he was just part of our family.
I used to think people who took pictures of their dogs and sent them out at Christmastime were kind of dorky.....till I got a dog.  And then we took his picture all the time.  Funny how that is.....We became dorks too.
 John, called him "My Little Buddy".....he will miss him the most I think.  
My little Brucie was a good dog for us. And he will be missed a whole lot.....sniff.......
