More precisely, my dog, Gizmo. He wanted to be included in your dog friends, so I told him I'd write you. Gizmo is a 4 year old Pug/Cairn Terrier mix who was rescued from a pet store in Norfolk, Va. I say rescued because when he was a puppy, he was considered "too ugly" and no one want to take him home. He had been in the store for over 4 months and had marked down 8 times. When I asked to see him, I'd never seen a dog that wound up. The clerk said I was the first person to ask about him since he had arrived. In those 4 months, he'd never been out of his cage. She went on to say that if I wanted him I'd need to take him soon. She said he'd be there at most another week, and that he would not be marked down again. It doesn't take a genius to read into that comment. So, needless to say, he came home with me.

I wish I could thank all the people who thought he was "too ugly". He's the best thing that ever happened to me. Personally, I think he's cute.
