Gizmo got very anxious when Dad went into the bottle shop without him! Thankfully it has all these windows, so he can keep a close eye on him 🐶

It’s been many weeks since we’ve had a day as warm as 24°, but today Melbourne finally delivered! I had a great afternoon walk at the beach. There were loads of dogs there, and I have to say, I love those puppies that haven’t yet learned the social norms of being a dog at the beach. They’re hilarious and cute. There was a black labrador one (not a puppy-puppy, but not a full-grown dog either, if you get my drift) who kept tearing away from his owners to try to get attention from everyone else at the beach, or on one occasion barge into some other dogs' game of fetch, including patiently waiting for their owner to throw the ball… 🤣 Dogs are so great.
We got to see this little guy a couple of times over the Easter long weekend! Despite Gizmo’s best efforts, he even got tricked into getting his photo taken a couple of times 🐶
Got to catch up with this little guy last night. While Gizmo was excited to see us, he was also very concerned about the volume of bikkie thieves around him. Never mind humans gave him the bikkie, and could easily get their own if they wanted bikkies… they cannot be trusted! 🐶
Gizmo has met the third cat in his life who didn’t immediately hate him! Timmka here was full of curiosity, actually, but Gizmo scuttled their emerging friendship when he went in for a bum sniff (not pictured). Timmka was NOT happy 🙀
Gizmo has seemed a bit subdued today, especially after Gidget hissed at him when he just wanted to play (twice), but he livened up when he reached the beach. Unfortunately, he got himself so filthy there that he needed a B-A-T-H when we got home… and now he feels traumatised.
My folks and sister are going away for the long weekend, so they’ve dropped Gizmo off to have his own little getaway at my place. Gizmo’s feeling disconcerted at being left behind, and also that the cat is hiding from him in the cupboard (…), to the point that he doesn’t even want dog biscuits. Hopefully after a walk (and Gidget coming out of the cupboard), he’ll cheer up a bit.
Last night we went to my parents' place to celebrate a big occasion with them: their thirtieth wedding anniversary! 🥳 A huge relief to have made it after Mum’s health crisis last year. Gizmo may not look it in this photo, but he was thrilled to have visitors over, too 😉
🐈 My parents and sister paid me their usual Sunday visit yesterday, and for once, Gidget came out and accepted pets from them! In recent times she’s spent their visits hiding in a cupboard 🙀
🐶 Then my sister, Viv and I walked Gizmo to the beach. In the 28°C weather Gizmo immediately flopped into the water, and then he enjoyed an impromptu conference of little dogs 😅 I know he thinks every walk is amazing, but this one was especially amazing!!
Some of my favourite recent photos that I haven’t already posted are these: Gizmo munching on his dentastick! Probably anxiously, to make sure notorious bickie thieves (me and my family) can’t steal them. It’s a hard life being a dog 🐶
