Phew! Gus is 12 years old today. What a fantastic day. His favourite toys have been bought – a bag of tennis balls. But he only gets one to play with until it’s been “destroyed”. He’ll play “chase” with it for days and days, and then on a whim, the poor thing thats given him pleasure – gets the chop by his teeth! It’s so much fun watching him. We’ll be off for a walk shortly, nice ramble in the woods near our house – he love’s it.
