Meet the newest member of our family, Gus!
Because, you know, the best time to get a new pup is when you have a three year old and 6 months old to take care of. Gus is a soon to be 100 lbs, snow white, bundle of puppy love. He came by way of Virginia and his arrival was a bit of a surprise. Sure I had been filling out applications and trying to contact various breeders but hadn’t heard back from anyone until Tuesday. By Friday, he was ours.
Gus is a Dogo Argentino – a breed know for their devotion to family and a strong desire to protect them. Enough said.
Lola seems a bit indifferent. She has been patient, sweet and a bit cautious. I think the picture below sums it up.
I would like to believe their relationship will eventually be the kind people write children’s books about. I mean, I know they are both dogs, but something similar to those books about the hippo and tortoise. Fun fact: hippos are my favorite animal. Not sure what it is about them, I just can’t get enough.
Another fun fact: Potty training in a “Polar Vortex” is the worst!!! I am half tempted to put a diaper on him until Spring. Wish us luck.
With love from Detroit,
