Quick Bio:

December 26th 2005


Any other doggies gettin' near his din-dins! Grrrrrrrrr! x

Favorite Toy:
Anything that squeaks - or if it's edible!!! Corrrrrr, he likes his food!

Favorite Food:
Again, cheese! Also biscuits. Also, Caesar. And what you've got, and what they've got...! He def has an eclectic palate! Yummy yummy yum...

Favorite Walk:
Walkies?! WALKIES?! Oh, anywhere!!! Park. Beach. Round and round in circles!!! If you're offerin'?! ANYWHERE!

Best Tricks:
Erm... errr... well... bein' Brucie I guess. Just a cutie! (He does try, bless! Kinda gets confused between sit and down!)

Arrival Story:
We (my boyfriend and I) decided we would like a new addition to our little family in early spring 2006 to keep our long haired Chi, Theo, company during the day. I say this... when really, I fell in love with Theo sooooo much, that I craved adopting another little love sponge into my life, to increase the LOVE LOAD!!! And Brucie fit the bill perfectly. The exact opposite to his bro, he is cheeky, energetic, mischievious, loyal, loving, greeeeeeeeedy, playful and all mine! Hee hee! And as a result, the Theo-Brucie combo met for a perfect friendship match x He was adopted from Donami, a breeder in Porth, Wales. Well... need I say more??? I love this boy with all my heart! The alfa male of the household - he is both my strength AND my weakness! x x x

Awww, this beautiful boy was born on Boxing Day 2005. Originally (and provisionally) named Noel by his breeder, he was soon renamed Brucie to suit his boisterious and endearing character! He is a gleaming white MIGHTY MOUSE!!! A teeeeeeeny dog with a HUGE personality! Unfortunately we have just discovered that poor Brucie suffers with Epilepsy. Even worse, we found out the hard way. He suffered a massive seizure in the early hours of Monday morning (11th June 2007), that he failed to come out of until the vet could sedate him. A condition known as Status Epilepticus - a serious and continuous seizure that lasts over half an hour and can be fatal. I was absolutely heartbroken as we nearly lost him and we weren't sure whether he'd pull through. This was all so shocking as we never even saw it coming. Don't forget, he's only 18 months old! Thankfully, we were able to bring him home three days later, and although he is not 'out of the woods' as the vet keeps pressing, and the seizures have clearly 'knocked the stuffing out of him', he grows a little stronger and a becomes a little more his former self each passing hour. So I am thrilled! Here's to mighty mouse!!! GET WELL SOON! x x x

Well, I'm finally home and boy is my mummy pleased!

I'm still not well, don't get me wrong. I'm not 'out of the woods' as the doggy doctor said, but both the doggy doc and my mummy have agreed that being at home in familiar surroundings will help my morale and help my mummy learn how to help me. I'm a little frightened as the fits are still occuring and they leave me very very tired and a little disorientated but everyone has their fingers crossed for me - I am very popular after all!

When I was picked up from the clinic, I was so excited that I had another funny turn, which wasn't very nice and then again as we were leaving. I understand that my mummy is very upset so I'm trying my very hardest to get better.

Please send me your love 'cause I've always thrived on that in the past!!!!!

Got to go - need to snooze!

Lotsa love Brucie x x x
