Since Gusto is nearly 3 (or already 3, or 3 today - it is hard to tell with rescues), and since I haven't taken real photos of the dogs in forever, we went to the beach with some friends for romping and pictures. Sadly the lake is still really high and there wasn't much actual beach, but fun was still had by all!

There was a 6 month old lab there when we arrived, which briefly worried me, but he was pretty respectful of Meg and mostly just tried to play with Gusto and the goldens. He did get a little rough at one point...


But Meg was quick to step in and defend her brother.


At one point, Gusto was desperate for a break from the lab, and took refuge in his safe spot.


Then the lab left, and the fun really began.

There was tugging between siblings.


And a failed attempt by the 28 lb dog to pull a golden around.




There was adorable Gusto


And dopey Gusto


A few traffic accidents

A nine year old dog who hates fetching, but likes yelling at people to throw toys






There was begging for cookies like a bad dog


And generic water frolicking










And my favorite shot of the day:

I just love Gusto... I swear him and Watson were separated at birth
I feel like the only appropriate reply is something like "You have my sympathies" :p. But really, as weird and tough as he can sometimes be, Gusto makes me laugh so much it is worth it. I suspect Watson gives you the same!

You hush! I've been told that agility dogs are "babies" until they have been competing at the top level for 2 years. Gusto has another 20 months to go!

He most certainly is not a boring dog :D Between him and Miss Menchi our life is filled with comedy.

Maybe Gusto is a secret basenji ;)

I too love the last photo.

There just too much adorableness, it's overwhelming. Happy birthday Gusto.
