Feb 25, 2021

Owner: Traci Beninate

Location: Harvey, La.

Affiliated Wine Business: Artisan Fine Wines

Dog Name: Bruno

Age: 2

Breed: Mixed-breed

In a Word: Energetic

Job Title: Boredom Disruptor

Star Quality: Snuggly and lovingly needy

Favorite Activity: Alerting us to deliveries ... Ring has nothing on Bruno.

Favorite Getaway: Back of the couch ... has to flatten the back pillows and blend in.

Forgivable Flaw: Smelling my wines. Nose in the glass if I sit it next to me ...

Backstory: We rescued Bruno to be a companion to our older dog, Ella, after we lost our big boy, Beaux. Ella loves to chase him into the back of the house and not let him pass in the hallway. She puts him in time out.
