Leo Gets Boarded

Leo Gets Boarded

Even though Leo comes with us almost everywhere we go in a normal week, he, unfortunately, has to stay behind when we take a weekend trip somewhere that is not dog-friendly or requires an airplane ride to get there. The first weekend trip we took without Leo was when he was about 5 months old. Since we didn’t have anyone close to ask to take care of him, we did […]

[Giveaway] DOGust Celebration Sweepstakes

[Giveaway] DOGust Celebration Sweepstakes

When dogs come into shelters, it’s difficult to pinpoint their dates of birth, and all shelters can do is give an educated guess to each dog’s birthday. While an approximate age in years is possible to determine, an exact date of birth is not. So in 2008, August 1st was declared the universal birthday for all shelter dogs by the North Shore Animal League America, the world’s largest no-kill animal […]

Leo Squeaks

Leo Squeaks

Other than a bully stick, antler, or tennis ball, Leo’s favorite toy is any of the ones that make noise, especially the squeaky ones. In fact, the squeakier the toy, the more Leo absolutely LOVES it. Whenever he’s playing with one of the toys, he’ll find the squeaker and proudly parade around, while simultaneously squeaking the toy nonstop. For the most part, I’ll let Leo have his fun because it’s […]

Leo Goes Fishing

Leo Goes Fishing

A couple weekends ago, Leo joined us while fishing off the dock and he loved every second of it, except for the dock itself. It was Leo’s first time on a dock and he was very unsteady at first. He was walking around with his legs spread wide as if he was walking on ice. After he realized he wouldn’t fall through the cracks, he was overjoyed to be near […]

Leo’s 1st Vacation

Leo’s 1st Vacation

Over the 4th of July long weekend, Leo went on his first trip! Usually, Leo has to stay behind in boarding, but this time we packed up the car with Leo and his luggage (his food and toys) and set off on the longest car ride of Leo’s life. We gave him some calming treats for the ride, but Leo wasn’t very happy about the ride, even though he’s in […]

Leo’s Sensitive Skin

Leo’s Sensitive Skin

Leo is a pretty healthy dog overall. Thankfully, we haven’t had any major health issues with him thus far. Every once in a while he’ll get the occasional bout of diarrhea (probably from eating duck poop), but it’s nothing a couple doses of Fast Balance can’t fix. He’ll also get some ear irritations if we don’t clean his ear out quick enough after a day at the beach, but again […]
