Gus July 16, 2007 - March 7, 2018

Gus went peacefully during a lovely snowy evening, he did love going out in the snow. It was time, he rapidly declined physically and mentally his last two days.  

Gus came to us on December 31, 2010, it was a long journey from a questionable home from his puppyhood to being dumped at shelter and then rescued and brought to a kennel (no available foster homes) where he spent his teenage years (puppy prison as we call it) to our home for the rest of his life.  To say he had it rough is a gross understatement, so much disruption and stress for his first three years of life.  He overcame a lot to become a very happy, albeit, slightly neurotic dog, and my best friend.

We've lost three others previous to him, this one has been the hardest for me.

Thank you for all your good wishes during the last two months.  They have been very much appreciated.

It's not good bye it's see you later.

  3. So sorry, Beth! Gus was such a beautiful dog. I always enjoyed seeing pictures and hearing stories about him. It was clear you guys provided him with a greta life when he was with you.
