Every Day This Old Dog Walks 4 Miles To Town Just To Say Hi To Everyone

ADVERTISEMENT

Bruno, the wandering dog, has been walking 4 miles almost daily for the past 12 years to Longville, Minnesota, just to say ‘hi’ to the town’s people.

Bruno started travelling from his earliest days. More than a decade ago a man came into Larry LaVallee’s driveway holding a small pup. The passer-by thought the dog belonged to those who lived there and figured it could get lost. However, the little guy was a stray and had nothing to do with Larry or any of his neighbours. But as soon as LaVallee looked at the dog, he decided to keep it.

Going on journeys was all Bruno ever wanted. Larry even tried to chain him, but the dog nearly hanged himself, so the owner had to make peace with his pet’s adventures. The master even got used to the town’s newcomers calling and claiming they’d found his dog. He also got used to the confusion at the other end of the line when he’d tell the good samaritans to let go of his dog since Bruno is perfectly capable of walking back by himself.

During the years Longville’s residents have grown accustomed to seeing Bruno walking around. He usually visits the city hall, the library, the ice cream shop, several offices and grocery stores, where workers greet him with meat scraps. Actually, people love Bruno so much, they named him the town’s dog and ambassador and even gave him a carved wooden statue!

The vid is cutie but I'd be crazy anxious if I had a dog walking alone in a road he shares with cars ;/

I just Love dogs so much. They are really children, who never completely grow up and leave home.

Oh man, I really hope he is neutered. Our dog Brownie is the son of the town impregnator, Blackie. He lives at a bar but wanders town getting girl dogs pregnant. And they all look like him! I've had people call and say, Brownie is wandering outside! Nope, just Brownie's brother from another mother... 13450964_1...28493f.jpg 13450964_10153551567337115_4494081333554622869_n-57c7d1928493f.jpg
