My name is Gus! I'm a really sweet boy that loves to snuggle] I get along well with other dogs, but if you have another canine companion at home make sure we meet first! I can get s.tartled easily, so I think a home with older children or adults would be best. I can't wait to show you how loving and playful I am!

Letter to To the little girl at the Post Office- I went to the Post Office here in Gridley today and was promptly helped. As I came out of the inner door to the desk, a mother with a little girl was coming down the hall. All of a sudden I hear almost at the top of her lungs, the little girl calls out "Hi Jake". And I turned around and .said "Hi" to her. So as I am putting stamps on my envelope, I could hear through the glass and door this little girl again: "Hi Jake". And [ turned and saw her through the window and we waved back and forth. About that tin~e, the mother eame through the in- ner door with the little girl next to her and the mother says "You remember Jake. He's the one that gave you the Flu shot". And the little girl pipes in right away- "and it didn't hurt at all". And I said "That's because we're good, huh!" and she said with a loud "Yes". As the mom and daughter were walking away, I was chuckling to myself and yelled "Merry Christmas" after them. So, to the little girl that called out to me "Hi, Jake"- Merry Christmas. Hol Hol Ho!
