In early February I lost my beloved fox terrier Roscoe. He was 13 and the best companion a guy could ask for. I was heartbroken.
I made a call to the wonderful woman who brought Roscoe into my life, Winnie Stout, to inform her of our loss. Winnie was as sad as I was. She has been raising champion smooth fox terriers since the 1950’s and Roscoe was one of her favorites….
I told Winnie that we would talk at the end of summer, as I was sure I would want time to think about a new pup. To my surprise, Winnie said she had a three male puppies in her kennel and “I must say, they are quite adorable!” She then mentioned that the new pups were from the same line of foxes as my Roscoe was. That sealed the deal.
It was like Roscoe had sent me a new pal. Two days later, I was on a plane to Orlando to meet Gus!
Say hello to Gustavo Brandywine Boy (his official American Kennel Club registered name!!) but we call him just plain GUS!
He is a wonderful sweet puppy. If you are not familiar with the smooths (as they are called) they are typical terriers: energetic, full of fun and wicked smart!! He loves his new home in Pennsylvania and he has also taken to NYC really well.
What can I say, the dog’s got style!
We are working with a dog trainer in NYC (the very same woman who helped us train Roscoe as a pup!) and he’s already mastered sit, stay and “leave it!”. (Working on “drop it!” for our time spent on the streets of NYC!!) Not bad for 4 months old! And I am happy to report we are 99% there with the house training, too!! And he has already gained 3 pounds!!
Playing with his cousin, Bailey.
I will be sure to post lots of pictures on Facebook and Instagram of his progress and development. Follow me there if you aren’t already!
I'll always have the most special place in my heart for my Roscoe…
