Bold as Brass

Like all dogs I love walking, well running, ideally free from the restrictions of the lead.

Generally I like joining my owner on all his trips, work, meetings, shopping, the doctors everywhere.


The reason, I’m a registered Hearing Dog, one of the 6,000 specialist Assistance Dogs working in the UK. Read more about my daily work and training in this article.


Of course, sleeping and eating are high on my list, but responding to sounds that David should hear everyday, but can’t really drive me.


I’ve been told to stop using the ‘Bruces Blog’ as my secretary (himself) was getting tired of all the junk being sent to me. So, I’ve got a new place to type. Check it out, it’s here...
