Leo vs. the bed

Leo vs. the bed

Well, technically, this is Leo’s third bed (and hopefully his last for a while).  His first bed lasted less than a week, and his second bed lasted less than 10 minutes (talk about a waste of money). We got Leo his first bed when he was about 3 months old. He had a couple accidents on his first bed, which wasn’t a huge deal, but then he chewed right through […]

Leo Has Two Jobs

Leo Has Two Jobs

Like I said in the Leo the Office Dog post, one of the reasons we got Leo when we did was because I was lucky enough to be able to bring him to work with me, and Leo didn’t have to be stuck at home all day by himself with no potty breaks.  A few months after we got Leo, Erich started a new job that was, coincidentally, dog-friendly! How […]

Leo’s Birthday Party

Leo’s Birthday Party

I haven’t been to many dog birthday parties (Ok I haven’t been to any), but I think Leo had the best birthday party ever! We, of course, showered him with love and attention from the moment we woke up, and by the time we were leaving, Leo knew something was up. It probably helps that I was carrying yummy smelling (homemade) pupcakes and people cupcakes. We got to work early […]

Leo’s Birthday

Leo’s Birthday

On Wednesday, March 27th, Leo will turn 1! As his birthday approaches, I can’t help but reminisce about Leo’s puppyhood. Almost a year ago, Leo entered the world looking like a little potato with a head, legs, and a tail, and about two months later I brought home my tiny, 13-lb Leo. Sometimes it’s hard to believe how much he has changed and grown in just 1 year! Even though […]
