Meet Brutus

Oh Brutus, aka Brutie. I’ve mentioned him a bunch and you may be wondering, who is this Brutie character? Gosh, what can I say about this adorable 6 lb, 11-year-old Yorkie Terrier? He moved here from Cincinnati, OH with my dear friend, Justine. Justine is a proud Ohio State Buckeye, so Brutus is named after the Ohio State mascot.

Brutie and I developed our bond in January 2015 when Justine and I became good friends while working on the same team at Amazon. Justine began a new project on our team that caused her to travel consistently over the course of 6 months. So, she needed someone to watch Brutie while she was out of town. I was happy to do it.

Over the last almost 10 years, Brutie and I became BFFs. Brutie and I travel together, hangout all day together at the office. We love spending time together. He has quite the personality.

He is incredibly high maintenance, requiring lots of attention, and demands to play all the time. He loves his belly rubbed and enjoys all the smells on our walks. Brutie is quite feisty and takes a minute for him to warm up to new people. He is a grumpy old pup so he is not thrilled with puppy energy and becomes friends with dogs who are mellow and geriatric.

Brutie and I (sometimes Justine) have traveled to Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Bend, OR and the list goes on. He loves to go on ferries and car rides. Brutie also loves watching TV, especially Jurassic World and football. Strangely his favorite toys are my Dyson vacuum and his Big Ball.

I can go on and on about Brutie. He makes me happy so he is almost always on the Happy List. You can learn more by following his antics on his Instagram account.

Are you a pet lover too? What do they do that adds extra joy to your day? I’d love to hear about it in the comments, or your thoughts about this post!

Until next time, have a joy filled day.
