It was something I could never explain. Long before we joined the blogging world. I just knew there was something different about Brut and I that I could never really put into words. Brut was almost two years old and while we were out on a walk, my conscious translated that knowing feeling into a simple understanding. Brut wasn't a part of me, nor was he an extension of me; we were a complete unit walking as one being. My best description for a term I would later come to know as a 'heart dog.'
