10/25 A good long walk with Gussie

The breast cancer walk was great today. The weather was perfect, the leaves were beautiful, and Gussie was well-behaved. We met Jan and Kris at 9 AM and the walk started around 10. I thought Gus and I would only do two miles because we usually only walk one mile, but we ended up doing all three. I sued my walking sticks and they really made a difference. I was so proud of both of us. He did get tired after about two miles and he just stopped abruptly which was hilarious. I think Cindy said he's done that with her before.

I ended up carrying him for about a half block and then he was ready to go again. I felt proud of both of us.

Tonight we went to Matt and Beth's for a fall fiesta. What fun! I brought Gus because he loves their kids and the feeling is mutual. They have a huge huskie named Storm and he is so calm and sweet with the munchkins. The kids played well and Beth had craft tables set up for them, and the evening culminated in a hay ride and hitting a pinata. Beth made it herself. She is so great with kids and so very creative. There were tons of kids there and every one of them had a great time. Most of them are still there, but Gus and I got tired. :)

That is great mom, 3 miles. I'm glad your back held up to all that walking.

It is hysterical when Gus just STOPS. He gives you that look like "I'm done". For me though it is ususally right when we start out so I know he is not tired so I make him get up and go and by then end of our walk he is keeping up well.

Isn't Beth the greatest mom, and she extends it to all the kids around her....It looked like an art class in her garage last night.

Thanks, Beth. I have one of your serving spoons. It was left in my salad dish. Sorry, I should have taken care of that. Will return it one of these days. :)

Yes, Jill, it was sure a good day.

Cindy, it really made me laugh. He knows what he wants, doesn't he?
