BRÜNER

There's no other way to say it, but I've fallen in love again and his name is Brüner. He has been with me for six weeks and I think we are both quite attached. He had another name when he arrived, but I decided to name him after a dog that my dad had when I was born that was named and registered as Brüner Von Bierstein. So this is Brüner Von Bierstein the Second.


He is a prince. Well behaved, mannered, smart, and quite handsome. He knows what he wants and is willing to wait for it quite patiently; sometimes with a few groans and whimpers. Dogs are amazing. Of course, he hates cats, loves squirrels (or is that one in the same), sees every bird in the area, and can sniff out food anywhere. He is not a counter surfer and is quite trustworthy.

He was off leash for the first time last weekend in the Arboretum. Twice. That is all I could handle as it was quite frightening to see him disappear, either by his camouflage abilities or simply running out of sight over a hill. However, he did look for me on his "return" and ran as fast to me as if I were the squirrel. It made me quite happy.
