The main Characters

Bruno from Potsdam-Eiche (near Berlin, Germany) was a giant-schnauzer dog, who was quite famous in the small town. His friendly and loveable nature will always stay in the memories of all the people who had the pleasure to meet him. Bruno loved his food, which he always eat within seconds. He enjoyed hunting foxes and birds, which he never caught, of course and to play with dog sticks, which his master Mathias  had to try to get  out of Brunos snout and then the game started over and over again until Bruno  got tired. Afterwards they went home,  layed on the carpet and cuddled for a while.

Boris from Potsdam-Eiche is a cat,  he lives across the road from Bruno. He likes to be around people and loves to relax in the hammock, in summertime. Sometimes he sneaks up in the bedroom, to lie down on the bed for hours, when his master and family are not at home. Occasionally he accompanies the kids to school,because he enjoys beeing around children a lot. He is a lovely, calm cat, full of new ideas.
