Big success: Gizmo was outside with Grace. While she was reading and more or less ignoring him, he went over the bridge (which he fears just a bit), went on to the path behind the palm trees and relieved himself, by himself, with no prodding from us.
In other words, he has now learned to take care of his own business on his own. VICTORY!!!
