Happy Birthday, Augusta!!

November 30, 2011

Happy, happy birthday (yesterday) to my darling god-daughter-dog, Augusta.  Augusta aka Gus is our brother Scott’s Chocolate Lab and is practically my second daughter.  My boyfriend and I watched her last summer while Scott worked in NYC (that gave us three labs at once), and I have been in love with Gussie ever since.  I have never seen a dog that is more human-like than dog-like.  Instead of swimming in the pool with the other dogs, Gussie would lay on the same lounge chair as me by the pool and when I got into my car to go somewhere, she…

Happy, happy birthday (yesterday) to my darling god-daughter-dog, Augusta.  Augusta aka Gus is our brother Scott’s Chocolate Lab and is practically my second daughter.  My boyfriend and I watched her last summer while Scott worked in NYC (that gave us three labs at once), and I have been in love with Gussie ever since.  I have never seen a dog that is more human-like than dog-like.  Instead of swimming in the pool with the other dogs, Gussie would lay on the same lounge chair as me by the pool and when I got into my car to go somewhere, she would climb under my feet in the footbed of the driver’s seat.  No floor sleeping either, she prefers furniture or beds.  My kind of girl.

Our brother Scott is the best dog-dad to little Gus and bought her an extravagant amount of new toys yesterday (including this pig) and even bought her a peanut butter doggie cake.  Are you crying yet?  Because Mol and I were wiping away tears over all of this.  So so sweet.   

I have been missing Gussie for months since she left Texas for Connecticut.  She is the best pup. And I wish her a happy, happy first birthday!
