Man's Best Friend

I have written before about the relationship between Les and Bruce.  What they have is truly special, and I sincerely thought something that we would never achieve with Bruce when we adopted him nearly three years ago. 

Yesterday we had our first 70 degree day of the season.  It is three weeks later than normal, and our trees are still drab and brown.  Les took advantage of the nice afternoon to fish for a bit. 

He leashed up Bruce, and then connected his leash to the belt loop on his pants.  He is much braver than me, as Bruce is about 95 lbs of muscle, and built to pull.

It all worked out well, and Bruce was content just to be with Les, and have some male bonding time.

Bruce is not as big a fan of water as Neeko and Faolan.  This is a good thing, because if he were, Les would not have attempted this.  If either Neeko or Faolan were with him, they would both be trying their hardest to go for a swim.


  1. those are really good pictures of their can tell they were both relaxed and enjoying the day.

  2. Good to see they both had smiles on their faces.


  3. Great pics mates:) We just realized woo added us to your bloggie list over on the right there- we have added you too! Play bows,


  4. That looks so serene-what a great time and way to bond <3

  5. Looks like a nice moment for them. But I'm with you... I probably wouldn't try the belt loop thing either! Even with only 42lb Rita, she'd probably pull me down. But then, I'm klutzy. :)

  6. A grown up version of "a boy and his dog" - bet they both had a wonderful time.

  7. That's the same bond I have with Nola. It's a beautiful thing!

  8. This is so sweet. J had an amazing relationship with Blue and now he has one growing with Scout. What I love about our dogs is that they're great at splitting their love and loyalty with us. But I know that J has his favorite. It's always cool watching them walking around our property together.

  9. Aww, how sweet. So glad you got some pictures of this. Bruce is such a good boy.

  10. Looks like they had a ton of fun for sure!
    So nice to see the bond.
