My dog Bruno turned 10 today. Hip hip hoorah! His greyish muzzle shows his age, but I can’t say the same about his behaviour. He still behaves like a pup. It’s true what they say, Labradors have a (very) long period of puppyhood. In Bruno’s case, I’m afraid, it’s never ending.
Bruno is a well travelled dog. He was born in Lommel (Belgium), 10 years ago, and moved with us to Australia when he was 5. He left Belgium a month before we did, and he had to stay for 1 month in quarantine in Sydney. He has his own passport, and I remember that his travel/medical document was one centimetre thicker than all our family’s combined.
He is a happy 10 year old dog. He makes me and my family happy, and we are endlessly entertained by him. I am a less crazy person thanks to him. His healthy vibe gives such great comfort and joy. I do believe that home is where my dog is.
Happy birthday, my gorgeous pup!
