Watch it here now!  Starring - GUS -

Mr. Gus Goes To The Ocean!

The driver got to have a little fun, too, some pretty pictures from the Ocean (did the whole Hwy 101 loop - starting from the north on Friday, Oct. 29 - lovely)

We love beaches, too, but we're not allowed to cavort in the water frown.gif  frown.gif  because of our ears. Keep chasing them, brother.

Jasper - Gus said he would tell his agent that he knows a stout, belligerent dog, that rolls in questionable biomass, in case Hollywood needs you!   lol.gif  tongue.gif

Well, there were a few "items" on the beach that he probably DIDN'T need in his mouth!   shakehead.gif  eek.gif

Good catch, Niko!  It looks just like Gus (and, sadly, yes, his ears fill with water too - but that's what otic drops are for, fortunately!)

Half Fast - Lovely backyard you have!  up.gif

Nancy - Nope, I still need to get up Mailbox - you game??   winksmile.gif
