Gus – 7 years ago


Google photos presented this picture as a reminder from 7 years ago.  It’s so strange seeing this because Gus never really does this.  There are only two or three times I’ve seen him carry a toy around.  He doesn’t play with them at all.  He would walk around like this moaning or whimpering as he walked.  It wouldn’t last long at all. Then he’s put it down and walk away.  Poor little guy. He’s so sweet.

Trixie, on the other hand, loves to play with toys.  We have to silence the squeakers on the toys or we would go crazy in a short time.

  1. He secretly thinks he’s Popeye…”I Yam what I Yam!”

    No, seriously, old folks get a last spurt of life and do things that remind them of their youth…I expect dogs do the same thing.

    p.s. We didn’t have to worry about squeaker toys… around here. Our chocolate lab was a surgeon when it came to a new squeak toy. It took him less than 5 minutes to extract it and prance around the house squeaking like he was possessed.


  2. An old fur buddy of mine, Jake, used to do the same thing with toys. He mostly ignored them, but every once in awhile, he’d pick one up, walk around with it and put it down.
