Brutus (AKA: Bruton the Crouton, Brutron 3000, Brubus, Little Bear, Wenie Bean, Little Pup, Brutie Pea Tutie, Brutie Bear) was a fighter, and I am proud of him for reaching 13 years of age. He made it through 2 close calls, gifting with me 5 more years of love and companionship that I cherished dearly. In his younger years he was an ornery little guy, stealing a wheel of brie and scarfing it down before anyone noticed, a few chewed shoes and some escape attempts that he thought were SOOO much fun! He loved going for long walks, swimming, lounging outside on the patio, and most of all our midnight snack time routine. Thanks for tolerating mommas photo shoots and cuddle sessions all these years. I know they weren't your favorite, but you were always a good sport. I love you with all my heart little bear and I will miss you everyday. It may be a long wait for me, but I will see you again someday.
