Anyone who's worked as a news producer can tell you: when there's a problem with the show, cute puppy video can save the day. Planned live shot fails leaving gaping hole in your news cast? Roll the cute puppy video. Satellite feed goes down causing you to miss a story? Roll the cute puppy video.
It's a lesson that's stuck with me. No time to blog about your recent trip to Chicago because you're too busy watching a not-yet-house-trained-dog? Roll the cute puppy video.
Gus, meet your reflection.
What else did we learn during his first full day in our family? Gus does not like leashes, does not like his kennel and has a long way to go to be house-trained. Good thing he's so cute.
