Gizmo - the shelter dog
This is Gizmo, an 8 year old apricot poodle, given a home 6 months ago. Prior to that he'd been in the SPA refuge in Nice and now - as you see - basks in the sun on a bench alongside his new and forever owner at Cap Martin.
Note he wears the medallion from the SPA and also a St. Christopher (I think?) to protect him.
I heard President-elect Barack Obama talking about the new puppy he will be getting his daughters and said he'd like the dog to come from a shelter. I do hope that happens. T00 many puppies, as well as older dogs in refuges. We should always give unwanted dogs a home, where possible. There are so many of them.
