Just want to update you on Gus.
For the 1st month or so he panicked when we left him alone. Tried to
claw his way through the door we left by. I bought him a cage. He hated
that. We put the cage away, gave him the run of the house again, and now
he does great. He greets us when we return, and we are never gone more
than 2-3 hours. By the way, he was/is potty trained. Not even one little
I walk him at least 2 times a day, mostly on the golf course. He loves
that and goes nuts over each and every squirrel. Once a day I leash him
to our golf cart and let him run as fast as he wants. He loves that too.
In a little over 3 months he's the best known dog dog on the golf course.
He's so friendly, everyone loves him. The two gals that work in the Pro
Shop keep doggie treats for him and for other members' dogs. So do the
gals in the office. He always receives a warm welcome.
We found a groomer who just loves dogs. She has a place in Floral City
called Greta's Touch. Greta was her dog, now deceased. Her name is Jean
and she a fenced in yard at her house and also at her Grooming business.
We will leave Gus with her when we go to Connecticut for 6 days. Our
oldest grandson is graduating from HS on the 14th of June. I will miss
Gus and will worry about him. But Jean will bring him to her place of
grooming every day and let him run and enjoy her other dogs.
I know Gus misses being able to run the 15 acres you have. I can't give
him that, but he really loves having a full time people family.
I have some photos that I'll try to forward to you.
Thanks for your part in making Gus such a great
