2007 was a good year for Gus.

During the holidays our family was commenting on how mellow he’s become. TTO and I have known this was his true nature all along, but it’s nice to see it recognized by others. I think he’s really moved out of the puppy stage and into his dog days. Initially I thought I would be sad about this, and sometimes seeing pictures from when he first came to live with us makes me nostalgic for puppy Gus, but I wouldn’t change a thing about him right now.

Here are a few of my favorite Gus photos from 2007.


This face? Kills me.


He looks calm enough, but those ears are on high alert.


Enjoying his first trip to the river on the 4th of July. What a smile.


The new deck offers a much better vantage point for hunting wabbits.  He looks so huge here!


Thanks for a great year little brown dog.
