Gus invites his producer Scooterman, Scott Shea, on to talk about his pet, a pug named Eunice. She suffered a stroke this weekend and will be put to sleep a little later on this morning. Scott talks about his dog, which he bought 17 years ago with his college graduation money, and how he and his family, including two children who've know her their entire lives, are coping with losing a big part of their lives.
After talking with Scooterman, Gus talks about the fate of our pets. The Church teaches that only humans have an immortal so and, therefore, are the only creatures that go to heaven or hell. But, as pet owner, that can be tough to hear. Gus asks listeners what they believe.
Also, today is Gus' brother Gary's birthday. Gus and Gary are "Irish twins," which means they were born inside of 12 months of each other. For the next 15 days, they will both be the same age. Gus asks listeners who are Irish twins, or who have Irish twins in their family, to call in and talk about what that's been like throughout their lives.
