Henry and Gus

This is about the fourth meeting of Henry, the cat and Gus, the dog. Unlike most dogs Gus absolutely adores cats and always wants to make friends with them.
With a bit of encouragement from us, Gus has grown very patient at waiting for the cat to make it's move and start contact.
Henry has gotten better at understanding that Gus doesn't want to eat him like all the other dogs in the neighborhood. Upon their first official meeting Henry walked up to Gus and smacked him in the face with his paw to establish who was in charge. Since then Gus keeps his distance and lets Henry approach him even when we aren't there.
