Friday Favorites: Why I Like Gus Better than Most People

1 - He's secure with himself. He knows he's the king and doesn't need anyone else to stroke his ego. When he's scolded, he recovers quickly. You can't keep him down.

2 - Gus does what Gus wants. If you don't like it, he does not care.

3 - He will stare you down like no other.

4 - He's independent but always returns to sit or lay next to me. He's my SnuffleupaGus. Get it?

5 - He greets me at the door every day bearing a gift. It's a dirty gross dog toy but still, it's a gift.

Happy 9th birthday to my Gussie, my first dog. Please live until the day I die...you can go a few hours before me. Wouldn't that be something? If our beloved pets could all die at the same time as us? Cheeseburgers for the dog members of our household tonight!

My posting schedule will be a little different next week due to a travel weekend:
Monday: Remember to look out for a special holiday edition of Shit MFD Says - it's his birthday
Tuesday: No blog post
Wednesday: Things I think are worth every cent
Thursday: an overview of the books I read this summer
Friday: Our trip to Chicago. So basically a TWTW post on a Friday - hashtag YOLO.

  9. Happy birthday Gus!

    His little puppy picture is sooooo cute! Do you find having a harness keeps your dogs from pulling when they walk them? Salem likes to pull specifically when he see's people, he thinks he should say hello to everyone. So not my style. :)

  11. I think #4 is an important factor in determining whether or not I like a dog! I want them to cuddle with from time to time, but it gets annoying when dogs have to follow you everywhere/get overly clingy & whiny. Gus has got it right!
