Dog takes a 4-mile walk into town every day just to visit neighbors

statue-bruno-dog.jpg.838x0_q80About a dozen years ago, a man pulled into the driveway of Debbie and Larry LaVallee’s home in Longville, Minnesota, holding a squirming little puppy. He told them he had found their lost dog. The pup wasn’t theirs, but they couldn’t resist the stray, who they believe had been abandoned. They took in the dog and named him Bruno.

But Bruno had other ideas. He didn’t want to be tied down — literally — and soon started wandering. Nearly every day, the dog makes the four-mile trek into town and has became a fixture with area residents who have dubbed him the town dog. He stops at city hall and the library, a couple of real estate offices and the ice cream shop, and of course the grocery store where his pals at the deli meet him at the back door with meat scraps they’ve put aside for him.
