Footy Team Tee - By Gizmo

Awesome! I got a Tshirt from Petitude in my favourite AFL footy team colours.
Even though I probably shouldn't admit it with the way they've been playing this year but can you guess which team I go for???

That's right the Essendon Bombers!

Give me that scarf Bomber Bear!

Don't make me bite you!

Making my own fun - By Gizmo

I was soooo bored today and mum forgot to put something in my Kong to keep me amused so I had to make my own fun instead.

Beverly Hills Chihuahua

Ooh, we are very excited about the new Disney movie and can't wait for it to be released over here. Yay

I'm thinking about sneaking Gizmo into the movies to see it when it comes out. hehe
Watch the trailer for it Here.

My very own boat - By Gizmo

Look at the new exciting toy I found to play with over the weekend. It's bigger than me, just like a real boat is. I play an action game with it where I pretend I'm at sea, chasing the bad guys.

Did you notice the jacket that I like to wear when I play with my new boat? And can you read the words that are on it?
It's from Petitude and mummy says it really suits me. What do you guys think?

Gizmo shops online

Shhh, don't tell mum, I'm shopping for her birthday present which is in only 2wks.
Mum's gonna be 28 in human years. Gawd, good thing she's not a dog or else she'd be ancient. hehe!

I'm thinking about getting her a new handbag she can smuggle me places in. What do you guys and gals think?

Gizmo the adorable Teddybear

Gizmo absolutely adores his new Teddybear outfit from Petitude. I had it on him for at least 6hrs last night and he didn't try to get it off once. I think because it's so soft, warm and comfortable to wear. Plus it makes him look adorable too.
He even slept in it last night so maybe I'll make it his Pyjama wear from now on.

Gizmo goes grocery shopping

Gizmo's very first time ever in a supermarket and he was on his best behaviour.
Hidden in his bag, inside the trolley, being pushed around for about 45 minutes. He didn't even play up when his food got put in the trolley next to him.
What a good boy. I was very proud of him!


By Gizmo

When mum told me I was going grocery shopping with her today I got very excited. I'd never been grocery shopping before and it sounded like it'd be really fun ... I was wrong it was extremely boring.
Mummy bought alot of food and alot of cleaning products too. I mean why did she have to buy so many sponges for anyway? Green for the kitchen, blue for the bathroom, yellow for the toilet and pink for everywhere else. Geesh, the whole thing sounds kinda silly to me.

She had so many items to pay for at the end, the checkout girl was so busy she didn't even notice me stick my nose out of the little air hole to sniff.

I sniffed all of the items mummy placed in the trolley as well to see if she put anything in there for me and she did. She bought me my first ever Kong.
I was so excited by my new toy I even forgot about the boring thing I had to go through to get it.

I can't wait to play with my new Kong. I've seen how much fun my friend Charlie has playing with his and I'm soooo excited.

Mmmm, it smells good. Thanks mum.

Gizmo finally goes shopping

Well we finally did it, after all this time. Hoorah!

I had to rush into Harvey Norman this morning and buy a new mouse because my old one snuffed it last night and I decided it was finally time to take Gizmo with me.
So with Gizmo safely hidden in the bag and my heart racing at 100 beats a minute, I took a deep breath and entered the store...

Nobody took any notice of us and not even one person looked at the bag, let alone confronted us so my heart slowed down to normal and I calmly walked through the store.

While I was browsing through all the different mice, Gizmo decided to shift positions in the bag. I glanced up to see if anybody noticed and nobody did, so with that I decided to take my time and look around the whole store.

At one point a sales lady wandered over to us and I thought "oh no this is it" but all she did was ask if I needed any help.

I couldn't believe how easy it was after all that stressing I did about it.

Then it came time to pay for my items and leave.
Gizmo started to panic because he thought the barcode, from the microchip in his neck, would set off the alarm. I told him not to be so silly.

The checkout guy didn't even ask to look in the bag to make sure I hadn't stolen anything. Phew!
I walked outta there with a great big smile on my face.

That was it, task finally accomplished, Yay!

Next time I'll take Gizmo grocery shopping with me and father's day shopping so look out for those upcoming adventures to find out how they went.

Oh No...Bath Time - By Gizmo

It's been 3wks since my last bath and mummy says I smell like old socks so she gave me a bath today.

I hate having baths, am I the only dog that does?
I like the hair-drying part at the end tho because it's nice and warm but that's about it.

I go crazy after a bath, rubbing myself along the carpet because it feels funny being wet.
Mummy filmed me doing just that this afternoon. Take a look.

Boaz ain't no Harley - By Gizmo

When I told mum I wanted to ride something with Horse Power this wasn't exactly what I had in mind.

Oh well, what can you do?

Anyways, what do you all think of the new jacket I'm wearing from Petitude?
I think it's smokin'!

Invisible bone burying

There is this really cute thing Gizmo does.
He buries his bone, inside, on the carpet.

He'll pick a spot somewhere, usually in a corner. Then he'll scratch the carpet with his front paws like he's digging a hole.
Then he will place the bone, ever so gently, down where he just dug.
And then finally (the best part) he will use his nose to scoop invisible dirt over the bone to cover it.

How cute is that!
I've been trying to video it but he's more interested in the camera then in his bone.

Thursday night is Inlaw night

Went to my inlaws place for dinner last night. They have cats there so instead of leaving Gizmo at home, I took his new playpen, which is actually a 4XL soft kennel I won on Ebay from Pet Attitude.

He has tonnes of room in it to play or sleep plus it has a waterproof bottom in case he has an accident but he's pretty much toilet trained now so that's not an issue.
He's safe in there from the cats plus the cats are safe on the outside from him.

I can fit in there with him as well which is good because I can't stand being away from him for too long.

Gizmo gets a parcel

Gizmo got a parcel from Petitude today.
He was really excited to see what was in it.

WOW, A Pirate Top!
Aaaarghh, me hearteys!

And beautiful new weatherproof boots!
He'll be right if it snows again now.

Thanks Petitude.
Gizmo loves you.

What dog breed would I be?

I took the quiz and if I were a dog I'd be a.....

We have Snow

Gizmo had to stay in the car while I fed Boaz this morning as it was too cold and slippery.

Poor Boaz needed an extra rug.

A Dogs Life - By Gizmo

It's hard work being a dog.

I sleep for approximately 16hrs a day but it's not true sleeping because I always have one ear open, on alert, for anything out of the ordinary.

I go out with my mummy everyday, in the car, and then I get strapped to her back while she goes and feeds that gentle giant of a horse called Boaz, who never seems to stop eating.

Sometimes she leaves me at home because she's going someplace where I can't go and it's my job to protect the house and guard it till she comes back.
I don't like being left alone and sometimes I howl and cry till I can't cry no more. Then my mummy comes home and I'm so happy to see her, I lick her like crazy.
I just love my mummy.

I eat 3 meals a day. 2 of those meals are dry food which I don't like very much but mummy says they're good for my teeth so I do as she says. I also get raw chicken wings, which took me a while to work out how to eat them cause they're very chewy. I think I've finally got the hang of it though.
Sometimes if I've been really good I'll get some of mummy's food. I love my mummy's food. It's the best food in the whole world.

That big, grey furry thing they call Prince the cat doesn't like me very much.
He looks down on me from places up high and then when he comes down low, and I go over to say hello, he swipes his paw at me which isn't very nice.
Doesn't he realize I'm only trying to be his friend and play with him?

Thankfully my mummy plays with me everyday. My favorite games to play are fetch and tug-of-war. I just love to play and wish I could all day long but it's no fun to play by yourself and mummy gets bored after a while.

At night I curl up in my mummy's lap while she watches t.v. Sometimes I'll watch the t.v too if there's animals on it making lots of noises.
There were wolves howling on the t.v last time I watched it and it was very interesting. I wonder if they'll be on it again?

I love my life now. Before I used to live with people who kept me outside with 6 other dogs because they wanted me to breed. I didn't want to though.
I was very cold and lonely there so one day I decided to run away and that's how I found my mummy.
I'm so glad I ran away because now I have the best life a dog can have and I'm very happy.

I love my life, I love my mummy & my mummy loves me right back!

Busy Weekend

Gizmo and I had a busy weekend picking up horse poo. The weather was pretty decent for a change so we got to catch up on a few weeks worth. Even though Gizmo didn't do much helping, he was too busy saying hello to the ponies next door.
