Sure, dogs are man's best friend, but not every dog. In fact, no one likes Gizmo. He really likes my mom, but that only makes it worse.

Gizmo, my brother's dog, has issues. He doesn't like other dogs, and they don't like him. In fact, Gizmo doesn't like anybody. There's something seriously wrong with him. He just barks at everyone and everything and won't shut up.

When my family all gets together, after an hour or less the whole family will be yelling, "SHUT UP GIZMO!"

At these family parties everyone brings their dog so we end up with five running around and they all love my mother. Gizmo is like the kid at the party that always acts inappropriately and bothers everyone. When all five dogs are circling my mom and being happy, it's just too much with him.
