Full Dentition

Yellow (not carrying chocolate)



At over 11 years old, Gussie is spayed and retired to the couch, and takes her job as grannie/auntie to the next generations very seriously!  When planning the litter, I hoped to name one of the pups "All Gussied Up" to combine her father's name, "Gus" with a diva-like name.  This girl fits the name-- she's dressed and ready for a party when you are!  Gussie is trouble (and was almost named that!)-- she's cute and she knows it! 


Gussie is an avid retriever and passed her JH easily.  At age 9.5 she earned her Dock Novice title along with her daughters Kizzy and Julep, grandsons Gibbs, Risky and Cinch, while her son Bugle earned his Dock Junior title!  The water-loving gene is strong with this crowd!!  She also passed her CGC and Therapy Dogs International (TDI) exams without any training at all!

At the Greater Atlanta LRC Specialty, Gussie was 2nd under Laura Reich in 15-18 month sweeps, and was pulled both days in the 12-18 regular class under Marion and David Hopkinson!

At the DFWLRC Specialty, Gussie placed 2nd in 15-18 sweeps under Mary Roseberry and 1st under Rusty Howard, and was pulled for Best in Sweeps.  Then, in the Bred-By class, she was 4th under Lisa Weiss and 3rd under Diana Beckett behind the 1st and 2nd place winners of Potomac's BBE Yellow class!!  Not too shabby for a 17 month old!! :)

I took Gussie it out to the field for the first time, June 2005 and she loved it! 

Yes, princesses do wear pink even in the field, in case you're wondering!
