Faithful Friend

Gus hung very close to Laura after school today.  He followed her, and would lie down beside her when she was still.  At one point, we found them like this.  Laura didn't seem to mind that this huge friend was hogging the camera! 
 A couple hours later, right before dinner, Laura became very somber and whiney. Gus would stick close to her, and then come over to Jamie or me, almost nervous-like...then head back to her.  Kind of like he was telling us...hey...she's not feeling well!
 I held her and she started to cry these silent tears that not only break your heart, but also make us wonder what on earth she's thinking about that makes her suddenly so sad.  Well, Gus was right there with her, and she actually laid her head on his back while she cried.  So sweet!  I wasn't paying attention at the time, but from this photo, it looks like Gus is crying on my shoulder!  Ha!
He stuck close before bed, too.  It makes me wonder if he knew she wasn't feeling well so far ahead of when we knew.  Perhaps that's why he was staying so close this afternoon.  Love this pup!

Awww...so sweet! My stepdad had a little poodle who would sit on his lap and stare straight at him for bout hour before he would have a grand mal siezure. Dogs are amazing!
