Gizmo the Chihuahua

Larbert’s Julie Campbell had a few good reasons to celebrate her 21st birthday, but the biggest and the best was also the smallest and the cutest.

Julie said: “I got Gizmo for my birthday. We had two dogs already and I got a little dog all to myself. I called him Gizmo because his big pointy ears made him look like the character from ‘Gremlins’.”

Little Gizmo, who regularly dons jumpers and jackets to look cool while keeping warm on winter walks, is not the slightest bit scared of the family’s black labs Abbi and Bonnie and often uses them as pillows to sleep on. “He is always sticking his tongue out,” said Julie. “Even when he’s sleeping.”

A really loving small dog that Julie cannot imagine her life without, nine-month-old Gizmo can also pound the pavements with the best of them.

“We didn’t think he would be able to walk long distances, but he just keeps on going and going and never seems to get tired,” said Julie.
