Lord Bruno





Mighty Bruno,
Lets out a growl so low.
He is lord of his alley,
And wont let anybody pass by,
Without the close scrutiny,
Of his condescending eye.

His only weakness,
A momentary glimpse of meekness,
Is a bowl of milk,
Or a delicious mutton bone.
No sharing with his ilk,
His lordship will have it alone.

The neighbor’s new dog,
Would rather sleep like a log,
For each time he slyly,
Tries to step out,
Lord Bruno quite emphatically,
Barks, “You lout!”

At night is when,
In Bruno’s majestic den,
A primal calling,
Nudges his lordship from slumber,
He starts his incredible yelling,
Rending precious sleep asunder.

Bruno and Granny are both beautiful. I am a big fan of grannies, yours is wearing white, most greek grannies wear black. i prefer white clad grannies, they look like good angels.

How:
Yeah - nothing like Granny's smiling face :-)

Deepa:
Aldo is extremely cute... When one is cute, things are compensated ;-)

Nidhi:
Thanks Nidhi ...
Is that Lucy in the sky with diamonds?

Chloe:
She is always dressed in white. But notice her hair - She's 83 and no grey hair! Also she is a quite a scholar in literature and am very proud of her :-)

Maybe our dogs are related. While yours is a Lord of all he surveys, mine is a Princess. She requires pampering.

Your grandmother is very sweet looking. You have a reason to be proud. ^_^

All dogs have personalities. Ours seem to have an attitude ;-)
