The Gentle Beast
I was just sitting watching Brut and thought, I wish all of you could get to know him like I do. He isn't the monster I once thought him to be so long ago. Some may never get past his aggressive behaviors with other dogs and I understand that. I used to be like that. But one on one with someone he trust tends to break all those rules of what this awesome dog is like.
When I really take the time to get in tune with him and he feels safe and unguarded Brut is a spectacular being. He has a very expressive face. He can show you humor, disregard, or sarcasm with the quick switch of his facial muscles. But it is Brut's eyes that set the stage. Full to the brim with love, security and a burning torch that sets his face ablaze as each emotion flickers through.
So while I get to see a different side of Brut than most, I appreciate the whole package he delivers. He's taught me things no human could have done in my own recovery and for that we have each other's back. He used to scare me quite a bit, I never knew what to expect from him and now we have found an understanding that lies between and within us. And full blooded love.
