'Tis The Season

Fa La La La Laa


Mummy put the Christmas tree up over the weekend.
I helped of course mostly chasing the baubles and decorations thinking that they were my new toys.
I love this time of year. It is my very first Christmas with my new mum and I can't wait for Santa Paws to come.

Happy Birthday Boaz

Boaz is 16 years old today and can you guess what his present was?
Yep food, food and more food.


Boaz got apples, carrots and a big salt block for his birthday.


Boaz's Life Story

Boaz was born in New Zealand on Nov 26th 1992
His mothers name was Joanna Bell also from New Zealand and his Father name was OK Bye from U.S.A.

Boaz's first 8yrs of his life was spent racing under the name of "Hydro Scooter". He won 19 races, 21 seconds, and 23 thirds. Approximately $59,000 prize money in those 8yrs of racing.

Boaz's last race was on the 19th Febuary 2000 and then he came to Australia on April 19th 2000.

He was sold and become a pleasure/trail riding horse after that.

My mum bought Boaz from a trail riding place in Leslie Vale on March 3rd 2007 (Yes the very day I was born. How's that for coincidence!)

Boaz's life now is spent lazing around, eating, playing in the mud, more eating and getting spoiled rotten.

I have no toys

By Gizmo

Aaarggh, it's not fair. My chew toys were taken off me over the weekend and put in the rubbish bin.

First to go was my purple bone that I had started to de-stuff.

Second was my chicken, I nearly ate his beak off and mum was afraid I'd swallow it.


And lastly my green boomerang that I decided to chew a hole in just today.


All of them gone for good. Why Why Why!
Looks like I will have to go back to playing with my food even though it's wrong.

By Katie

Why do they make dog toys that say you have to remove them if dogs start to eat them. Hello they're dogs, that's what they do.
How stupid is that!

Does anyone know of any toys that are safe if dogs start to eat them? I can't seem to find any.
And has anyone tried those latex type toys that are supposed to be bite proof?

I give Gizmo those rawhide treats to chew on but instead of chewing on them, he plays with them and his toys he's supposed to play with, he eats!

Huge Flower - By Gizmo

Oh My Dog, look what's come out in my backyard.

A humongous flower that's bigger than me.


It looks and smells so pretty. I wish it could stay that way forever.
Do you all like my flower?

Dog Whisperer - By Gizmo


My mum's been watching the Dog Whisperer on T.V lately and now she's starting to learn some things that she's trying on me.

On today's episode there was a miniature pinscher who had an obsession with his ball. Yes that's right, he had the same problem as me.
The dog whisperer told the Pinschers owners that this was not a healthy obsession to have and that they had to break him of it so now my mum is doing the exact same thing to me and Sweep.

On a plus side, my ball is no longer kept up high, out of my reach. Instead my mum owns the ball on the ground now and I must lay down and be calm before she will throw it.
Once she throws it, I must wait calmly and patiently until she tells me that I'm allowed to go and get it.
If I get over excited or I don't obey then my mum gives me the claw grab with her hand till I calm down.

Sigh This training stuff is really hard.

Dogs Day Out In Hobart

I had a very busy, fun-filled day today.
I went to something called Dogs Day Out or Pets on the Domain.
It's an annual event hosted by the Hobart Dog Walking Association and Hobart City Council.
This was my very first time there and I had loads of fun.

I got to see and play with all different types of dogs.

This Is Wellington

























Hey look it's a dog like Lorenza












I also entered a fancy dress competition to which I got 2nd place in the Category "Man about Town."
Not bad seeing how I was dressed 'casual' because I didn't know it was a black tie competition and most other competitors were wearing tuxedos.



After all it was a good day and I was very well behaved.
My mummy was a bit concerned how I'd be around all the other dogs but she need not of worried. I got on with everybody like a house on fire.

I am exhausted now and am going to have a very long nap.


I'll be by later to check see how everybody's weekend was spent.

To God From the Dog

Dear God: Let me give you a list of just some of the things, where I must remember to be a good Dog.

1. I will not eat the cats' food before they eat it or after they throw it up.

2. I will not roll on dead seagulls, fish, crabs, etc., just because I like the way they smell.

3. The Litter Box is not a cookie jar.

4. The sofa is not a 'face towel'.

5. The garbage collector is not stealing our stuff.

6. I will not play tug-of-war with Dad's underwear when he's on the toilet.

7. Sticking my nose into someone's crotch is an unacceptable way of saying 'hello'.

8. I don't need to suddenly stand straight up when I'm under the coffee table .

9. I must shake the rainwater out of my fur before entering the house - not after.

10. I will not come in from outside and immediately drag my butt.

11. I will not sit in the middle of the living room and lick my crotch.

12. The cat is not a 'squeaky toy' so when I play with him and he makes that noise, it's usually not a good thing.

Not Happy, Left At Home - By Gizmo

I was left at home all day today while my mum went Christmas shopping and I am not very happy about it.
I was really excited about going too and I went and got in my carry bag.


Then mum told me that I couldn't go because I hurt her shoulders too much being carried around in my bag all day Hmmph!
She was gone for days too! Well not really days, but that's how long it seemed like to me and when she got home I went berserk.
How dare she not take me!

However, on a plus side, my mum did buy me a new T shirt to wear on Christmas Day. I will model it for you guys to see sometime this week.

New Game - By Gizmo

Mummy has found a new game to play with me and Sweep. She puts Sweep inside one of her socks and I have to try and get him out.

Here I am on video again playing this new game.

video

It's not as much fun as Fetch and sometimes it takes me a very long time to rescue Sweep so I can get very frustrated. But when Mummy is too busy to play fetch with me it beats having Sweep get put away up high.

My K9 Horoscope - By Gizmo

PISCES

20th Feb - 20th Mar

The Pisces pooch is full of life. A positive collaboration of fun, energy and playfulness. Not one for sticking to routine, the Pisces dog will often follow his heart before head.

Agreeable and easy to get along with, Pisces dog is a great friend and confident although, he can be a very 'mucky-pup' with his disorganised attitude to life and cleanliness.

Not adverse to wandering off, the Pisces dog loves to roam wherever his heart takes him. Unfortunately for him, his head does not allow him to remember where he roamed from. Pisces dog is a sensitive soul with strong desires to be molly coddled and reassured constantly. Could be described as 'not the sharpest knife in the drawer' but full of love.


OMD this is sooo me, well most of it anyway.

I am full of life, fun, energy and playfulness and seeing how my mum found me twice after I ran away from my previous owners, then I guess you could say, I did roam wherever my heart took me. Thankfully for me it was to my new mummy and I'm very happy now and have not tried to run away since.

I do like to keep clean although I have a habit of leaving my toys and bones all over the place for humans to tread on plus my mum caught me rolling in a very smelly spot in the backyard and brought me straight in for a bath. I hate having baths, so I guess I am a mucky pup too.

I also love to be molly coddled and reassured constantly. This was especially true after I got my operation (neutured) I took a whole week to get over that. And sometimes now, if I hurt myself when playing, I will limp straight to my mum for cuddles and kisses to make me all better.

The only part I disagree with is the end part. "Not the sharpest knife in the drawer" That is sooo not true. Only my dad would think it was.

I love to Lick - By Gizmo

Have I ever told you all that I have a fascination with my tongue?


I love to lick people, even people I don't even know.


My Mummy has tried to break me of this habit but couldn't so she doesn't seem to mind it now. I guess she figured out that licking is as much a part of me as my tail is.

Are any of you guys lickers too or am I the only one?

According to google - By Gizmo

According to Google I Need...

A loving forever home (Nope, I already have one of those, thanks anyway)

Fixing (I am already fixed and it hurt something shocking. I am not going to go through that AGAIN!)

A skpecast (What the hell is that?)

A haircut (I don't have enough hair to cut unfortunately)

A good PR agency (No thanks, my mum is all the PR I need and then some)

A firm voice (Hello did you see my video with the vacuum and the ball?)

No Introduction (Well now I can agree with that one, 100%)

I think you all should try it. It's really fun!
Just go to Google and type in your name followed by "needs" and see what comes up.
My friend Rusty also did this and his results were hilarious!
