This morning Gus was hanging out on the stairs, waiting for me to tell them 'let's go crates.' He knows when I'm about to leave for work. But he was sitting there so cute, I walked over to the stairs and stuck my face between the balusters while I was petting him. Now Gus is not known for being sweet or lovey-dovey. He's know for saying, 'Give me a ball,' and 'If you're lucky, you can rub my belly. But only for a minute. I've got things to do.' He's just recently started to sit with us on the couch, and only for a few minutes at a time (he is a MAN, after all). Well, as I was petting him, he just looked over at me and gave me two little licks on my face I think he was trying not to mess up my makeup before I left for work. Maybe there's a sweet puppy buried inside that big ol' man after all!
