    I know it's been a while since I have given everyone a Gus update!! Sorry I've been incredibly busy! Poor excuse I know!!

    Well Gustav the wonder dawg, has learnt a new trick!!! He can actually speak!
    Now when I say to him "say hello to Jon-a-than" He says " Woo Woo Woo" He listens to the number of syllables in each word and copies it! It's truely remarkable! lol! If I say to him "Say hello to your mummy" He says "Woo Woo (mum-my)" This dog will never sease to amaze me he really won't! lol! It doesn't matter what you tell him to say or how many syllables are in the word, he listens (His eyes drift off and you can really see the cogs turning in his head) and then he replies!! :D

    Oh how I loooooooooove this dog!! :D He is a constant source of wonder and amusement!!

    Ps: Renee, the herding thing has sorted it'self out, with the help of a tap on the head from one of Tollys feet :eek: :rolleyes: !! Gus wasn't at all hurt but I think he's learnt his lesson!!

    I just love the sweet intelligent Gus! I love his stories. I know if he and Brady were around each other, they would be such great buddies!

    I haven't had time for taking many pics at the moment, which is a real shame because I am at my happiest when i'm snapping away! :(
    I will take some this week, I promise!! Gus is such a ham he just loves to have his picture taken!! I have never seen an animal pose like it! lol :D
