He looks at me every day. He has a placard around his neck that commemorates our wedding day 14 years ago today.

We got to see him two weeks before his demise but I’ve photos of him younger and stronger and remember him balancing a treat on his nose and then tossing it up in the air and swallowing it.

I remember that his mom taught him to be able to take care of folks at the VA, and that when he started to fail she took him to swim.

When I think about it Gus’s dad took me down the “aisle” at our elopement in a grove of trees overlooking the ocean. It should have been Gus. Then the Best Man would have had only one job.

I loved that dog and know that he sees me and looks over me every day. Happy anniversary, Gus! Dee
