I was bored Friday night and wrote this and some suggested i send it to you. 

HOW DID I GET HERE???  The story of gussie (that’s me on the left)
Do you remember when you were in your mom’s belly?  I sorta do. I think it was real dark and crowded cause I had three brothers with me in there.  We couldn’t see or hear anything cause our little eyes weren’t open yet and we couldn’t hear but we could smell and oh boy. . 

Well anyway the next thing we knew we were outside lying on a real soft blanket and our mom was feeding us.  We still couldn’t see or hear but we could smell, especially our mom and each other so for the next two weeks, we just mostly laid around and ate and slept. 

Pretty cool except we started getting kinda bored. Then one day the funniest thing happened. At first we started to see just a little bit of light and could hear some things. As we started to see better I noticed certain things. For one, my mom was huge. It took me awhile just to get from one end of her to the other. Of course I was still having trouble walking but still.  For another, my three brothers’ aren’t as good looking as I am.  Their cute, but I’m beautiful, I think.

Beside my mom being there all the time, there was a human person too and it was real nice to curl up in their lap and go to sleep. One day I was lying on the person’s lap cause she liked me the best and my brother Ziggy waddled over and started biting my ear.  So I crawled over and started biting his tail. Then pretty soon our other brother’s were biting each other. Not hard cause we really didn’t have any teeth but just playing.

Life went on like this for the next couple of weeks.  We explored where we were living and played with each other and mostly ate and slept without a care in the world

. Then one day, I was picked-up and put on this little table. There was a person holding me to make sure I didn’t fall off and a bowl of something in front of me so I tried it.  At first, I didn’t like it but pretty soon after that we were eating all of it. We kinda lost interest in our mom feeding us after that, and she was spending more and more time away from us anyhow.  It’s really funny.  I thought I would really miss my mom but we were growing and playing with each other so much I didn’t. 

Soon they brought in these metal bowls with this crunchy food in it and that was real good. Now we were playing more and trying to escape from this kinda pen they had us in. My brother, Hugo actually got out one day but was soon caught and returned. Life was good and fun.

One day this girl we came to know as Megan came and put us in a buggy thingy and took us outside. Boy what a difference.  She put us down on this stuff called grass next. My brother Emmitt took a few steps and then started running so we all did.  Wow. What a new world with all the new smells and things to see.

So time passed and we started getting bigger and bigger. Soon we were eating outside at the tables with holes in them.  Megan was being mean and wouldn’t let us eat until we all learned this new word WAIT. Boy I hate that word.  We were now eating twice a day and loved our meal time.  We moved to this new house and were able to go outside anytime we wanted through a little hole in the wall.  Not outside, outside but a little pen. A whole bunch of other dogs were living there too.

  Sometimes when we were let out to play, the big dogs would come and play with us.  They were always very nice.

Speaking of big dogs let me tell you about Bailey. She lives in the house with her mom Carlene and after we got bigger we moved from the puppy room to the kitchen.  It was real neat there. There were persons all around and a big bed. We got on the bed by climbing on this thing the persons called a taco bed. 

 Sometimes they let us into this other room where bailey and his mom live.  They open boxes and stuff in there and it’s a lot of fun.  One day this man person was there and picked me up and asked how little Gus was doing.  Everyone started laughing, even my brothers and I didn’t know why. Gus is a boys name and I’m a girl so why would he call me Gus??  I got real mad and stopped wagging my tail. 

This person named Tracy told me that because my mom couldn’t have us the regular way (whatever that is) the doctor had to help us come out.  When he came to me he told Megan that I was a little boy so she named me Gus. Well when Megan took a closer look and saw that I had much longer eye lashes and was so much prettier than the others they realized I was a girl and became Gussie.

 Anyway Bailey who is a giant would go and get this basket in his mouth and take it to his mom.  I sure hope I can learn tricks like that someday.
 Anyway, on some days when there were allot of people there and they would put us in a pen where the kids could come see us and talk to us.  I wish we could have played with them but some were to rough and they were afraid one of my brother’s might get hurt.  

The first time (I think) we were down there and all the people had left this person named Katie walked us back to the house. We got to go on our own and it was allot of fun.  She even took a movie of us and of course I was the star.  Hugo thinks he was but it was me.

Well we kept growing and eating and playing together the four of us, kinda like the four musketeers and then one day they put us in separate pens.  I was very sad.  I didn’t understand why until I was out one day playing and this giant dog with a shirt on his back sat me down and asked me why I was so sad.  I told him I missed being with my brothers and he explained that someday I was going to grow up to be a service dog.

Well I had no idea what he was taking about so he explained it to me.  He said that when puppies are born they grow up travelling many different paths. Some are fierce guard dogs some sniff out bombs or bad things. Some puppies grow up to find people and some just to keep a person company. He told me that some pups are what they call trained to help people who can’t see and others to help those who can’t hear.  I said that I just wanted to grow up and play with my brother’s all my life and he said that was very selfish of me.  He said I was selected to be a very special doggy who was going to be trained to help someone to walk and stand. He said that the person I was going to help would love me very much and I would grow to love him or her. I still didn’t understand but then Megan and Katie did start to train my brothers and I.

I’m a little older now and my training is going well. I’m proud of what I’ve learned and am looking forward to meeting my forever person. I realize now that service to others, dedicating your life to that is the most satisfying thing in the world. I still see my brothers but also know that someday we’ll part.  They’ll go on to be wonderful helpers to their forever humans.  They say that we four had the wiggliest tails ever at this place.  Knowing the life I’m about to embark on will keep my tail wagging forever.  Well bye for now. Maybe someday I’ll have my own puppies (I am a Gussie and not a Gus) and I can tell you all about them.
