"This is my dog, a Pekingese and Poodle mix. His name is Gizmo and he's 8 years old in this picture. I like his hair kept short so he goes to the same hairdresser (since he was a baby) every 4 weeks in the summer months and 6 weeks in the winter months. When he was younger going there, the hairdresser’s daughter used to read him a book after she got out of school to keep him from whining until I picked him up. He is a momma's boy! He follows me everywhere. My family gets upset with him (as well as others) because they'll say something to him or try to get him to do something and he doesn't acknowledge them or even look their way; they don't exist. When I take him for walks (which he knows he's going when I say the word) he has to hang on to his leash in his mouth. You always know when he's tired because he goes right to bed—that either being his kennel in the family room or in his own bed in my bedroom. Sometimes I think he's part cat because when we go on a trip he climbs up my neck and lies there between my neck and the seat. He is the best dog. Everyone wants him. I bring him into work and he stays right by my side. He stays in my office until I go out and then he'll follow me wherever I go, just like glue. Although, every time I take him in people are always telling me he needs braces because of his under-bite. I tell them that's how he gets the girls. Anywhere I take him people offer me money to buy him. He is so well behaved. I took him to the mall to get his picture taken with Santa Claus and he ended up being on the front page of the Lansing State Journal. He loves to have his picture taken."

"This is our pet Gizmo. He is a Pomeranian / American Eskimo mix shown here at 5 years old. He was born on Christmas Eve. He is very talkative and has an "I am the king" attitude. But this king loves to roll around in the mud digging for worms. YUCK!!!! It is not a pretty smell."

A wavy-coated black Pekepoo dog is laying in the backseat of a vehicle looking up and to the right. Most Likely at the person in the drivers seat.

"This is my Pekingese / Poodle mix Gizmo at 7 months old. He is the smartest and the most well-behaved dog. He stays by my side everywhere I go and when I'm not there and you say my name he starts jumping to the door waiting for me to get home. He is a miracle dog. When he was just 13 weeks he was scratched in the eye by a cat. The scratch was so deep it punctured the lens. The doctors told me he was definitely going to lose his eye if I didn't get this 4,000-dollar surgery. I couldn't afford it so I treated it with medication 4 times a day for about a week, and going to the vet every other day to check for any improvement. Long story short, he pulled through and his eye healed back to normal. I have 4 other dogs all purebred and my Peekapoo Gizmo is the smartest one out of them all."
