Bruno is a funny little dog,
His ears standing up like bat ears,
Alert with his paw lifted up,
Suddenly ready to run in fifth gear.

Out in the open Bruno is lively,
Chasing anything that moves suddenly,
He is so alert to any sound,
Suddenly still then back on the move.

Being on the beach is more fun,
Birds to chase then in for a swim,
Summer or winter he doesn’t care,
Swimming for sticks isn’t so grim.

Back at home Bruno is so good,
He collapses on a chair to sleep,
Still alert ears laid back prettily,
For hours we don’t hear a peep.

Bruno pretends to be a brave dog,
So willing to protect and guard,
Standing so proudly and alert,
My little angel who isn’t so smart.

About Philippa

I am married to Rick and we live in a small town in County Durham. We have two dogs, a cat and two budgies. I am also an adoption survivor. In 1981 my son was born and I was then forced to surrender him. It took 23 years and reunion for my to find out that my son's adoption was legally known as a forced adoption and illegal but social workers got away with it because mothers didn't know their rights.
