Dog Love of my life- Bruce

Happy Wednesday blog friends. It was a pretty day here, cool but the sun was out most of the day. The picture above is my GSD -- Bruce!!! This dog was the smartest dog I have ever known.
The dog love of my life!!!! I was married to my first husband and father of my 2 sons, at the time Bruce came into my life. Bruce was the stud fee for mating with a female GSD. My then husband had a GSD male dog . He wanted him to mate so he could have a puppy from his dog love of his life. Bruce came from that matting.
Below is a picture that is not suppose to be in this blog, but here it is. That is Maggie. A spayed female we rescued from the local shelter. She was an older GS that needed a home. We was a very Sweet dog that lived with us for 4 years. She loved sticks and would go around with a stick in her mouth all the time. But this post is about Bruce so lets get back to him!!!
Below Bruce the first day he came to his forever home. 6 weeks old!! A bundle of energy!!
Wanting to go go go. I had just come home from cancer surgery. I really didn't need a bundle of pure love. It was just him and me and the cats!!!!!!!!!!!!

The cats taught him who was boss real quick!!!
I spent every waking hour teaching him!! He learned so fast. I was his Mama. If I had it to do over again I would spend more just lovin on him!!! Sleeping with him. being close!!!

Here he is about 14 weeks old. A fine dog by that time. We were going to obedience school and he was doing great. At the end of 8 weeks of going 3 times a week he won his class. But that was not what we were there for. We were there for bias training.
Bruce and I were a team. When I got divorced he was there for me!!! It was just him and I. We got through it.
I hope you have not been bored. Come back soon, I love company.
Love you all lots, Bambi & Fern
