Local personality and Shihtzu. We are not certain that the Gizmo in our picture is the Golden Heart Gizmo since, despite what his plaque says, 'Gizmo' seems to be a common name for Shihtzus. Are we missing some reference here? Anyway, enjoy the ickle cutie.
2014: we are grateful to J. Ripp for writing to us: "re: the prevalence of 'Gizmo' as a name for shihtzu, please see the 'good' Gremlin from the 1984 film. http://gremlins.wikia.com/wiki/Gizmo". Thanks, J.
