Tales of Gusto: Psycho battles a rattlesnake and Bavarian finger wrestling

It's time – once again – for Tales of Gusto, when I celebrate those who do awesome things in life. I have three different stories to share this time:

1. Psycho the Chihuahua poodle mix

Yes, animals can for go the gusto, too, and be included on this list. Especially when a little bugger steps in front of a rattlesnake to save someone.

2. William Dillard the 7th grader

Dude can dunk in the seventh grade. I couldn't dunk with a ladder in the seventh grade.

3. Bavarian finger wrestlers

Yes, they actually exist. And they are awesome.

Be sure to check back in next Tuesday for more Tales of Gusto. You can submit Tales of Gusto to me by posting them at www.Facebook.com/GoingForGusto.
