My mad dog

Writing about web page http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ySTY7HCLXM

Took Gizmo to the woods and discovered that he likes to swim…and then go mad.

Turn up the volume to hear me swear when he almost knocks me over half way through :)

Gizmo's first 36 hours

Follow-up to Yet another new member of the family…Zeno/Gizmo from Kieran's blog

We’ve had Gizmo now for almost 36 hours and he’s been absolutely fantastic.

Even though he did pee in the house a few times yesterday and first thing this morning, he is a lot better now and is getting the right idea now and has been good all day.

I spent the day at home and kept an eye on him and Maggie. As expected, Maggie is not yet his biggest fan and has growled at him quite a lot. However, they’ve not actually had a fight and don’t look like they will. I even managed to leave them both alone at home for an hour today and they were fine…I got a great double bouncy greeting when I got home :)

Gizmo is also really responsive to training already and is already being really obedient, he’ll be all trained up and into his routine in no time.

All in all Steph and I are really pleased with him and couldn’t have picked a nicer dog!

Yet another new member of the family…Zeno/Gizmo

Follow-up to New member of the family from Kieran's blog

After having a dog for almost 2 years…it’s time for another one!

We’ve had Maggie for almost 2 years now (2 years in January) and we’ve occasionally been thinking it’d be nice to have another dog, but we’ve never been that serious about it.

After going on holiday to visit my parents and yet again seeing Gina and Tiro and what good mates they are and seeing how well Maggie had got on with Steph’s Dad’s dog whilst we were away, it made us think again about another dog. This time, it seems right so we went and had a look around the Dogs Trust the last two weeks and yesterday we found the one :)

He’s currently called Zeno and was rescued as a stray from Ireland. He’s a Black Lab cross of some kind (possibly Border Collie) and about a year old. He’s a really nice boy, very friendly and seems to get on really well with Maggie when we took her to meet him both yesterday and today. We’re going to change his name to Gizmo as Zeno is just a made up kennel name and he doesn’t respond to it at all. With a bit of luck we’ll pick him up next Sunday!

It’s going to be hard work having a second dog, but I think it’s going to be really good for us as well as really good company for Maggie.
