OMD was I excited when I got this email the other day:

Dearest @gizmogeodog!

Brace yourself, this is official communication from your one and only elected Purrime Ministerettes of Planet Purrth, Shiva and Jaya!

We are here to concattulate you because you have won #pmcontest! Standing O for you!

Yes, this scruffy terrier was the lucky winner of the official Purrime Ministerette high-res wallpaper … pawtographed and all.

Not only that, but I had the distinct honor of a major shout out on the Prime Ministerettes blog…I was all happy ears & wagging tail that day.

Here’s our prize


And here’s what it looks like on Momz ‘puter…she really needs to clean up that desktop

PMsPurrfectDesktopIf you haven’t yet visited with Shiva and Jaya at #10 Downing Street, you really should…they’re very gracious hostesses and will even show you their baby pictures if you ask…You can find them on twitter @ShivaandJaya and watch their award-winning videos on YouTube.

I also got a kewl award from my sweet friend Misaki who’s made me a very happy dawg by agreeing to be my date for Mollie & Ranger’s Valentine’s Day Ball (there’s a link for that in the sidebar).


Here’s the  rules  for this award…

1) Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you…check!

2) Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and link back to them…check!

3) Answer 5 simple questions….

1) If you could change one thing, what would you change?

More walks for me, less working for Momz!

2) If you could repeat an age, what would it be? any year?

Two years ago Momz wasn’t working as much and we got to travel a lot and have many adventures…but this year Momz is working at home so I get to be with her all the time…it’s a tough choice, but I’ll take this year when we’re always together

3) What is one thing that really scares you?

I’m not really afraid of anything but when we’re in a crowd of people I do worry about getting stepped on…Hoomins can be very inconsiderate about invading my personal space

4) What is one dream you have not completed, and do you think you’ll be able to complete it?

I do want to meet some of my blog and twitter pals and I’m going to doing that in February when I go visit my pal Oz the Terrier…and I hope to meet a lot more at Barkworld in Atlanta in August 2013…My other dream is for Momz and me to go to the Blogpaws conference this year, but right now that doesn’t look possible…so I’ve got my paws crossed for Blogpaws 2014

5) If you could be someone else for one day, who would it be?

I would be a dawg with the ability to fly so Momz & I could visit our many pals all over the Blogosphere

4) Display the award on your blog somewhere…it’s on my Awards page now…check!

5) Nominate up to 20 blogs for the award and notify each of them…

We’re nominating 5 blogs today…I’m hoping that there might be one that’s new to you that’ll become a favorite…

About Gizmo

Hi! I'm Gizmo...a handsome terrier-about-town with a distinct point of view. I will write about whatever interesting things come across my desk, appear on my twitter feed @GizmoGeodog, or meet me out on the geotrails. I love to geocache cause it takes me to all the wild places & I can get back to being a real dog. I care about all my brofurs & sisfurs who haven't found their own forever homes yet, & raise funds to help them whenever I can. My girl brought me home from the shelter & together we explore our world. I do my best to make her smile, & she does her best for me. We are a team.

  3. Clowie says:


  4. BOL Gizmo!! You are the award-king of dogville lately!! Congratulations!!! I get nervous in a crowd too. Being a small dog, the humans sometimes don’t notice you until they step on you. Ouch!

    • Gizmo says:

      Our furriends have been very thoughtful and generous to us and we do really appreciate each and every award we get…It’s pawsome to know that folks like this scruffy little terrier

  5. Oh very cool, we will have to pop over and check them out.

  6. Congratulations, Gizmo! What a fabulous prize! Sounds interesting must see the baby pictures ;o)

  7. Shiva & Jaya says:

    OMC, Purrime Ministerettes is nominated?! What an honor! *blush*

    We informed Secretary of Writings & Speeches about nomination. She gonna take care of the rest Caturday.

    We thank!


  8. Dood, you got an awardie from the Purritime Ministerettes? You’ve really arrived!!
    And concats on the reality award too! Wee sure wish *our* mommy worked from home…*sigh*

    Maxie’d probably be the only kitty who’d be okay with travelign & meeting other twitter/blogger peeps. Faraday freaks when strangers visit and Allie can’t be bothered (MOL!). But we do think it’s cool that you’ll be doing that!

    • Gizmo says:

      I know…the real actual PM’s … is that pawsome or what! The work from home thing is pretty neat for me…I even get an afternoon treat break 🙂 I am a traveling dawg and can’t wait to meet up with Oz…We promise to rain Terrier Terror on all in our paths 🙂

  9. Congratulations on you award. Well deserved. Wow look at the cool cats outside Nos 10. Does our PM ‘Just Call Me Dave’ know they are there and more impawtantly Larry the failed mouser of Nos 10? Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

    • Gizmo says:

      I believe that Shiva & Jaya have taken control of all kitteh-related activites in the UK and have everything under their well-groomed paws BOL!

  10. Loy says:

    Gizmo you and your Mom are soooooooooooooo cool! Congrats on your new award. You sure have a busy year planned–I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Gizmo, you Rock!

  11. Ann Paws says:

    Congratulations Gizmo! You’re a very lucky pup to be going with Misaki to the ball, she’s very pretty!

    • Gizmo says:

      Yes she is most bootiful and i wuz very happy she agreed to be my date…iz going to be a wonderful event…Shiner & Nibblet have found themselves some great dates too 🙂

  12. Congratulations on your award. Just popped over from Roxy’s site to say hi. Glad I found you.

  13. Congrats on the awesome prize Gizzy. I wish i gave this to you now sooner seeing this award you received….your gonna hate me lol. http://kirbysdawgblog.com/2013/01/17/new-domain-awards-kirbys-favorite-spot/

    • Gizmo says:

      Kirbster I’d never be mad at you pal…It’s all *highpaws* and *tailwags* between us…I’ll have to think about your questions and get Momz to write down my answers…and you know what pal…I lay on the top of the couch too…it’s how i get my best view out the window 🙂

  14. Thank you so much for the award Giz! 😀

  15. That’s a pretty spiffy looking wallpaper you got from your friends. Does it also make you a dual British/American citizen?

    And congratulations on your award and awesome date with Misaki. You’ll make quite a stunning pair.

    • Gizmo says:

      Dual citizenship would be great…I’m a closet anglophile and would love nothing more than to spend a few months roaming around the British Isles…with Gizmo of course 🙂 Just wait till you see the romantic historical couple we’ll be dressed as…it’s gonna be great

  16. Congratulations on your award, Gizmo, and, wow, what a price 🙂

  17. BJ Pup says:

    Gizmo, it’s BJ. I love your answers to the questions. It made me think about my answers. My Mom is going to Blogpaws this May in DC. If your Momz could swing it my Mom would love to meet her. Mom won’t take me even though they would allow it. She said i would be alone too much and would be happier with my dog sitter. YUK!

    • Gizmo says:

      BJ you’re momz is lucky to be going…my Momz can’t do it this year ($$$) but she’s hoping for next year…We are going to Barkworld in Atlanta in August & that’s gonna be big dawgie fun

  18. Wow Gizmo, that’s fantastic 🙂 wez will pop by and say Hi 🙂 Have a great Furiday and big congratulation’z xxxx00xxxx

    Mollie and Alfie

  19. Congratulations! Off to explore some of those blogs new to me 🙂

  20. I love Shiva and Jaya and am on their cabinet. Now if I can only find out how to open it. MOL!

    • Gizmo says:

      I love them too Oh Stunning One…the trick is opposable thumbs…the PM’s staff has them and takes care of such mundane details BOL!

  21. PepiSmartDog says:
