Deering - Bruno - High Point, NC

Bruno of Kersey Valley  CGC
Born January 26, 2005
BG # 42666

Our lovable, goofy, lop-eared Bruno was purchased as a puppy from a pet store by a young couple who went in to buy a MINIATURE DACHSHOUND!  They had a baby boy who was the same age as Bruno.  As Bruno and his activity level grew they feared that he might accidentally hurt their son. Bruno was banished to the back yard.  By the time he was age 1 ½ they realized he deserved a new home.

The young man put an ad on the internet to sell Bruno.  John and Nell Ward contacted him and offered to help find a good home for Bruno.  While he was trying to sell him, he kept telling interested people that Bruno was “real hyper.”  That scared most people off, but not John and Nell.  They met the young man and Bruno and they were able to get him to settle down quite easily.  We first agreed to foster him until we could find him a good family, but as fosters we are failures.   We picked him up in late September 2006 and he quickly became a part of our family.

One of his greatest pleasures is riding in the van.  Just rattle his harness and he’s ready to go; even if Becca does always claim the seat.

Since the death of his BIG brother Xaro this past December Bruno’s position in the family has elevated.  At first he wasn’t quite sure what to think.  But now he has taken over Xaro’s duty of Official Sniffer, sitting with his chin on the corner of the table whenever we sit down to eat.  Trouble is…Bruno can’t reach it quite as naturally as Xaro did!

With Zippy gone Bruno seems to have relaxed a bit.  He is still the most active Berner I’ve ever met, always on the run, with his crazy ear cocked at a silly angle.  He loves to pick his own fruits from the trees and veggies from garden, and taught Becca and Xaro the joys of “picking your own”.

He is our loving, goofy, alarm-barking protector.
