    John, I am so very sorry to read the news about Gus. He may be gone but he will live in your heart forever. You and he had so many good times together.

    John I am so sorry to hear about Gus I know he has a special place in your heart. I never saw him run but I have seen his son BK Picasso run and he definitely has influence the breed in a good way. I have a friend who had a litter sired by BK and they are really nice pups. God bless Gust and hopefully he gets special flyers.

    I am so sorry to read this. I feel like I knew Gus from the stories you've told. I hope your heart heals soon and you can smile at the memories.

    So sorry John...As much as I loved watching him run the National Am with such style, it was the way he left the line afterwards with his complete focus on you that won my heart. You two were blessed and lucky to have each other and I hope memories comfort you.

    Godspeed Gus. Good Dog.
