the secrets to life...

If there is any secret to this life I live, this is it: 
the sound of what cannot be seen sings within everything that can. 
&  there is nothing more to it than that.

And what cannot be seen in this life of ours sings out loud in this little crazy dog!  In his song lies loyalty, faithfulness, unconditional love, trust and joy......pure, simple joy.  Those that know Gus have heard him sing.  He loves to sing...loud and way off key...and puts his whole body into it, knowing that a trick biscuit waits for him at the end of the song.  He knows the secrets to life.  He learned them early.    He shares them willingly, should you choose to come visit.  Secrets like nothing beats a  good truck ride.!  (He understands those two words....truck ride....they make him twirl and bark and jump for joy!)  Secrets like... take a nap every day...and on the good days, take two!   Keep digging until you find what's buried. (even if it does lie under the flower that Joe just planted.)  .Drink lots of water  and find some shade to rest in..   Play every day.  Protect your territory.   Never turn down the chance to roll in the snow.   And never let 8 pm go by without a greenie.  (we swear he can tell time too!)    There is nothing more to it than that!
