Dearest Gizmo, you are adorable! What a beautiful young Pekingese guy you are. You are adorable in all those great photos, and how nice to see your mom and dad there, too. You and they all love each other dearly, don't you. What a delightful love-filled home you share, there in New York City!
Congratulations, darling Gizmo, on being chosen today's Dog of the Day! We hope you and your dear parents and all your family and friends are enjoying a fine celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats.
