Everybody in Longville knows Bruno. He is the town's dog who is a wanderer by nature. He goes for long walks around the town every day to say hi to the town's people. Bruno has his daily stops, where he meets and greets people and then returns home to his owner.
This brown wolfy dog has been going for a walk around the town Longville for the past 12 years just to say hi to everyone. He loves people and often stops by the city hall, the ice cream shop, the library, several real estate offices and Tabaka’s grocery store, where workers welcome him at the back door with meat scraps they’ve saved. He is practically the town's dog and everybody from Longville knows who is Bruno.
Dogs are adorable, they love humans and can even walk some extra miles just to say hi to everyone. Meet Bruno, the 12-year-old dog, who has been taking a daily walk around the town since he was a puppy just to say hi to everyone.
“Everybody knows Bruno,” laughs Rouse, “may not know the people, but you’ll know Bruno.”
“It’s just been his routine as far back as I know,” Sharon Rouse states, she watches Bruno’s arrivals from the picture window of the Hansen Realty office, where she works the reception desk.
“The first time I saw him in town, he almost beat me to town,” laughs Larry LaVallee, who used to pick up Longville’s trash. “I was picking garbage on the way, and I get in town, and I wasn’t there five minutes, and there’s Bruno.”
“A guy came in my driveway, and Bruno was a little pup,” Larry LaVallee recalls, “and he says, ‘I found your dog at the end of your driveway.’ I says, ‘Well he ain’t my dog.’”
LaVallee says he immediately decided to keep the dog that he believed was abandoned.
“And that was the beginning of it all,” says LaVallee.
Bruno is a wanderer. he goes on long walks around the town. During the walks, his daily stops are city hall, the ice cream shop, the library, several real estate offices and Tabaka’s grocery store, where workers welcome him at the back door with meat scraps they’ve saved.
“He’s our buddy, we kind of watch out for him the best way we can,” says Patrick Moran, the owner of a real estate office on Bruno’s route. “Last week he came in and stayed about an hour and a half or two hours,” says Moran.
“He’s more friendly than most of the humans in town, and I’m not saying that in a negative way about the humans,” Tripp says. “He’s that lovable.”
