Anyways, Gus is doing great. We were wondering what we were doing wrong as he has not been able to figure out his name or other commands. My 11 year actually figured out that Gus is deaf. We still love having him as we adjust to training a different way. He is doing well with the 11, 5 and 8 month old kiddos in the house. His big brother (the Aussie) Cooper, has learned to love sharing the attention and being used a pillow. As he now has someone to play with and run in the back yard. He’s slowly understanding that the cats do not appreciate the attention he tried to give them. Less and less is he bothering them.

We are looking forward to warmer weather and less snow for longer walks and trips to the dog park.
