Gizmo - a 4 month old (Silken Windhound) Houdini!

We knew from the start that Gizmo was a smart pup.
When he was 5 weeks and 6 days he had already watched his elders using the doggie door and tried it himself. Alas - he was too small! He didn't reach up and he was not yet strong enough to jump up and push the flap open.

When he was 6 weeks and 3 days he had it all figured out and he mastered the doggie door.
From that day until he left for his new home with Marith in Norway, he was completely housebroken.

Not bad for puppy that age to figure out all that by himself just by watching the other dogs.

Little Gizmo did not disappoint Marith. He has proven to be quite resourceful.
But maybe it is a bit too much when you find your 4 month old puppy 5 meters up, at the top of the roof on the garage!
(Luckily he stayed put and could later be coaxed down with some juicy meat)

Pups love babies

Although my dogs are in no way used to babies, they seem to love them.
A very young baby visited us yesterday and all dogs were most interested.

Things I'm going to get when I can afford it

There area lot's of small things you'd like to buy if you had the money. Unfortunately money for all those really unnecessary things you want is scarce.

Here is a sign I would want at the gate, with a pic of my dogs and a kennel name, they have signs for you baby pram and all sort of things too.
Swedish Plate

And this company does pieces in silver from your photo, they only seem to do babies, but maybe they can be convinced to do dogs?
And look at the hand and foot prints they do from real prints of you baby in real crystal!
I can very well imagine a paw print from a dog as well

Ah, this is just a small amount of all of those completely unnecessary things I would really like to have
