Gussie

Matthew Dayton from Visions Service Adventures

Gussie is a wonderful soul who has mostly transcended an imperfect past.

Clearly he was misunderstood and just needed a new chapter as the enforcement officer at VISIONS. He’s protected us from many UPS deliveries, for example, but now is mostly retired at the age of 15. He enjoys bountiful naps and humorously keeping an eye on things when he’s so inclined.
