Gus goes to school

by Steve, Kat, & Gus


Last week I started preschool. I didn't know what it would be like. When we got there, Mom said I had to take a first-day-of-school picture.

During the first class, we practiced responding to our names and sitting. I think Mom forgot to take pictures of me sitting, but let me tell you, I am GREAT at it. I had a bit of a head start though because I had been practicing it at home before I went to school. Here's a picture of me responding to my name when Dad called me.

We took a lot of breaks at school. During one break, my teacher, Ms. Roiya, gave me this yummy treat ball for a snack.

There were other puppies at preschool too. My classmates are named Daisy, Rufus, and Fiona. Fiona is nervous around other dogs and Rufus is tiny. Daisy, on the other paw, is so dreamy. We are the same size and we both love to play. Here I am during another break trying to show Daisy my moves so she would stop paying attention to her dad and come play with me.

At the end of the class, we got playtime. Ms. Roiya tried to get us to play with each puppy, but Daisy and I only had eyes for each other. We played and played and played and played. We played so crazy that Mom couldn't get a good picture.

I can't wait for my next class so I get to see Daisy again!
