Gus may not be one of Queen Elizabeth’s pets, but his breed still has the royal seal of approval. The 1-year-old Pembroke Welsh corgi lives like a king in his White Rock home. “He’s a super fun little guy,” owner Rhonda McGaughey says. “He always looks like he’s smiling.” Gus, named after Gus Gus from “Cinderella,” gets the royal treatment with lots of walks around the neighborhood and plenty of chew toys, which he destroys in about five minutes, McGaughey says. He also has the run of the house after his sibling, an aging shih tzu, began a self-imposed exile in the bedroom because of Gus’ high energy. “He’s social. He loves people, and he loves other dogs,” his owner says. “Sometimes he’s just too enthusiastic.”
