Gus
7/25/2003Gus was my best friend, my everything, for 15+ years. He was my loyal companion, my shadow, and my adventure partner for so long that it is a struggle to learn how to deal with this new life without him. There is simply a hole in my heart that may get smaller as time goes on, but will never fully heal.

While the sadness of the current moment is crushing, it can not come even close to outweighing all the wonderful, happy memories I have of Gus. I wanted a dog for so, so long that the life pictured in my head seemed unattainable - but Gus surpassed every expectation. We did everything together. And I am so, so proud of the life I gave this little shelter dog from New Orleans. He truly made me a better human being, and I hope he understood what an impact he had on my life and how much I loved him.

Gus was so much more than a dog, he was my family. Kenny, Cannon, Tilly, Izzy and I will miss his physical form immensely, but his memories and spirit will absolutely live on forever.

Gus - I hope you’re running around and tearing apart a million stuffed animals and eating all the ice cream cones up there - and remember that I love you more than you could ever imagine, my little legend 🐕 ❤️
