I’m not totally sure how he keeps getting away with it, but my guess would be his sweet puppy dog eyes (those […]

Leo the Little Guy

Leo the Little Guy

As I’ve mentioned before, Leo’s a healthy, 95 lb puppy. He was the biggest puppy in his litter and is the biggest dog in our neighborhood. Most days he’s usually the biggest dog in the park unless we’re lucky enough to see a Great Dane, St. Bernard, or other larger breed. Since he was about 10 months old, we’ve rarely come across dogs that are larger than Leo. As a […]
