All in the Family



Gus found us while we were shopping at Home Depot. Some folks had him in their cart and my husband pointed him out to me and I said "That's the type of dog I want". 10 minutes later we're in the check-out line and hear the folks with the puppy in their cart say "He's free to a good home." My husband and I looked at each other and 5 minutes later we had Gus! Gus, (named after Augustus McCray in Lonesome Dove) was very mischievous at first, but grew into an awesome dog. We had almost 12 wonderful years together, traveling, hiking, backpacking, and just hanging out. He's now hiking the Spirit Trail and still brings us smiles (and a few tears) everyday.
