Gus: The Ultimate Food Thief

Cuteporter Abbey R. in The Big Apple fills us in on the magnificence that is…..Gus.

“Hello Cute Overload: This is Gus, our basset hound keeping a watch out for all entrants and food-droppers at our house. He never seems to outgrow the name ‘Squat-O’. He’s about 75 lbs…the ultimate food thief.”

Beautiful Gus

“He doesn’t sit down long when the camera’s on him, if he sees someone paying attention to him he tends to get up and beg for food.”

    My college’s campus dog was a Bassett named Humphrey. He’s long gone now, but oh, my, he was quite the fellow. As good a food thief as Gus, I’m sure, and with so many different potential sources!
