Yogi (Gus), I did rename him, hope that is ok and no one is offended. He is doing great, I feel like I have won the lottery with him! He is such a sweetheart and well behaved dog, everyone he meets they instantly falls in love with him. We have only had a few small instances where he chewed a remote control and shoelaces, no big deal. He gets along great with other dogs, loves little kids and is great at retrieving his frisbee and tennis ball. We worked on walking on a leash, that was a little challenging at first but now he is able to walk without pulling. My mom has a 12 year old Golden Retriever (Eddie) that he just adores, anytime Eddie lays down Yogi loves to cuddle up next to him or at least be touching him. You will see that in some of the pictures. He likes to sleep in his dog bed on the floor but every morning at 6:30am he asks to come into bed with me and we get our cuddle time. The picture with his tongue out was taken at the Vet for his ID card, people there just loved it. His weight as of a couple weeks ago is 75 lbs, the Vet was happy with that weight but did not want him to gain anymore, he really hasn't grown all that much in the past year.
I am very grateful to have him in my life, couldn't ask for a better pup!!
