One of my favorite animals are dogs. I love how friendly and playful they are with everyone. One dog inparticular that I love is my dog Gus, He is fully and entirely The Man in any way you define it. He is always so playful and happy and always does tricks no matter the time. I spend almost all of my time with him when I am home and he fallows me everywhere. He is basically a brother to everyone in my family. He is eleven years old now, and is a Black Lab. One behavior that I think is so funny about him is that whenever we bring him down to our lake spot across the street, he always runs into the water, dives underwater and grabs the biggest rock he can find with his mouth and brings it back up to our dock. He will keep doing this until we make him come back up to the house and by that time there is always a huge pile of rocks on our dock with zebra muscles on them that we have to throw back into the lake. I believe that he does this because he is clearly a show off, and wants to show everyone how many rocks he can get without hurting his mouth, and also thinks he is so cool that he can go underwater. Either way we all love him to death and think this behavior is hilarious.
