Red and Gordo: An old timer and a young pup.
Red is described by his person, Amy, as a crusty old man (which made me giggle). But he has a ton of love left in him, and it was amazing to watch how much Amy loves him in return. He's not so great at walking, so she wheels him around in a wagon to take him for walks. There's a picture I saw from his birthday in which his wagon is decorated with balloons and bunting, and he doesn't look the least bit embarrassed. Red is awesome, as is his brother Gordo. I had the pleasure of walking Gordo for a week a few months ago, and he's so much fun to be around. We walked to City Garden, where one of the security guards is gaga for him and has to give him a meal's worth of treats. Amy is a dog trainer, and she has taught Gordo some great tricks. Hey, as long as there's a tasty reward, he'll do just about anything.
