It’s official! We have formally adopted Gizmo, the lhasa apso, from the neighbor. He’s been staying with us for the past few days and we have all become very attached. I took him down to visit his mom yesterday and she told me that she had to get rid of him as her husband did not want Giz coming back inside in the winter and she realized that she just could not take care of him properly. It was a bittersweet moment.
