    Well my new little mate is settling in great. She is an 11 week old Maltese Shih Tzu and was an early 70th birthday present from Lyn. We were not going to get a pup, but the process you have to go through to adopt a dog, and with the new law changes coming into effect in Victoria, on July 1st, Pet shops will no longer be able to sell Dogs or Puppies. So Lyn and I went out looking, now we have a cute little ball of fur.
    Both of us are very impressed with our new car, it's economical to run, comfortable and very roomy, I still haven't learnt how to use everything, but I'm getting there.

    That's great, Kev. Waking up each day to a new car puts a smile on the dial and having a new dog in your life keeps you smiling most of the day.

    Cute dog Kev, not so sure about the wheels though LOL... Nah the car is kinda cute in a small hatchback kinda way, I do like the rims though and low profile tyres make it looks pretty neat overall :D

    Suzuki have reclassified them from a hatch to a mini SUV. We liked the wheels to they came with the deal, it should have steel rims. The decals were an add on later. Lyn and I are very impressed with it.

    Bet it handles pretty good and light on the juice unlike my clunky 105 Land cruiser...

    Always nice to get a new ride and a new best mate, I wouldn't like to not have either my 4wd or my dog Zephyr (kelpie x cattle x Rottweiler x black lab) blasted big sook of a dog but crap he got a mean bark on him, and he's nice and warm and cuddly when it's cold... Way better than a moggy hahaha
