A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers

I haven't been on this site for a very long time ... life got in the way a bit.  That doesn't mean I haven't thought about all my friends here.  I have checked in from time-to-time.

The main reason I'm posting today is because it is Gizmo's 5th birthday today!  I can't believe that little ball of fluff and deviltry is five!  He has turned into the most loveable, sweeet and goofy baby ever!  He is The Best Dog in the World!

Some of you may remember when I joined this site, I was beside myself trying to train the little monster.  He bit and nipped, tore clothes, and all kinds of other "naughty" things.  Nothing I did seemed to get through to him.  I kept thinking someday he will grow up .... someday.  Well, I think we are almost there ... to someday.  He still bounces all over people; but not as long as he used to.  He still nips and bites, but knows the words "Stop It!  You're being naughty.  DON'T be naughty".  Then he stops.  There are other things he's working on, but all-in-all, he wonderful and I'd have another one if Terry would let me.  LOL

So for his birthday, he is getting a new bouncy ball that squeaks (for outside ONLY) and a special cookie from the pet store.  His old ball doesn't squeak anymore.  He took care of that a long time ago.

I'm adding two pictures to this post showing Gizmo at 11 weeks old - the day we brought him home, and one from a couple months ago.

Jo & Gizmo!  You're back.  Happy Birthday Gizmo.  Hope Terry is doing well.  I've had my own medical issues but I'm working on getting better.  Love you guys.

Sweet Gizmo, a little late because Mommy has been away from our beloved Doodle Community for a while (the work gets in the way!) but with lots of loving paws and hugs to your Mommy and Daddy, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! So happy to hear that you've trained them so well ;) A new bouncy ball, eh? Lucky friend!! With love, Pedro

Happy Birthday Gizmo! Mommy hasn't been on this site much lately either. Doodle Mommies get so busy sometimes. We hope your day is great and you gets lots of treats and presents. Lookin' good buddy.

Happy Birthday, Gizmo!  We have thought about you often, and the same as for you, life has gotten in our way and kept us from visiting much. You look WONDERFUL and I am so glad that you are "adulting" better now.  Dulcie is also, and has become a lap dog (albeit a big one!).  I look at the scar she left on my arm from time to time and think how far she has come from that jumping, rowdy puppyhood, which lasted a LONG time! Jo Bill, I hope all is going okay for you - have missed you and Gizmo much!
