ABC Wednesday G is for Gus


Denise Nesbitt and her Gallant Group Gaily organise and host this weekly meme. Want to have a Gander at what others have Generated? Click here.
Augustus Lazarus Cooke, usually known as Gus, Gus-Gus, Gussy or Gustopher, will be one year old next Monday, September 6th. How can he ever have been smaller than our cats? I used to carry him downstairs in the middle of the night when he wanted to go out – I can't lift him now. 
He has grown from an adorable small puppy into a handsome, athletic, large dog. He hasn't finished growing yet and will broaden in the coming months. His Labrador instincts are fully developed, evidence of the fine working stock from which he comes. He is intelligent and quick to learn, naughty when the mood takes him (when he hasn't had enough exercise!) and a great smiler.

  3. I had to laugh aT THE photo of him on the sofa. And he surely is athletic jumping at the waves like that. I must comment about the cat though. It has a most gorgous coat. Just a delightful colour.

  12. Okay, the sofa photo made me spit my coffee all over my screen :-)
    He is a very handsome boy, with the most wonderful name a dog can ever have. Friends of us have a labrador litter now. We are not going to visit. I know we will end up with another one, making the total 4. We are definitely not going to visit!
    Far too adorable.

  21. What a regal name for a pupper! I know what you mean about Growing up so fast. We have a Golden that just turned three and I can't even remember him as a puppy. (if you are curious, search my blog for Big Dog of Three). Thanks for sharing. Big dogs are the best!
