Hi again everyone. Gizmo here.
I do think it's a bit unfair. Yes, she does have more chins than lives and yes, her gut does keep our hardwood floors freshly buffed, but saying that's it's no longer safe to lift her without a spotter is going a little far.
It is true that Rosanne fits through her kitty door without the aid of lubricants and that Larry King has tried to kiss her full on the lips. It is however a rumor that she no longer cleans herself unless coated in Cheese Whiz and there is no truth at all to the rumor that she only catches mice that get trapped in her gravitational pull.
To find out the truth, join me when you're here and we'll go looking for her. She's the one who looks like Queen Victoria from behind.

Eden Dog Carting...Sledding.
We had a blast!! The owner Jim Blair introduced us to the dogs and the sport of dog sledding on wheels. We harnessed our own team and set out on the trails with eight dogs leading the way.
The dogs are lovable, huggable and live to run. They are free-range dogs whose year-round well-being and quality of life is their passion. They are located on 75 acres in the midst of 3000 acres of protected Vermont wilderness. Upon our return home the smells on our clothes drove Gizmo and Utah into a jealous frenzy.
