Leo the Self-Entertainer

Leo the Self-Entertainer

Playing with Leo has become one of my favorite pastimes. We play tug of war, hide and seek, fetch as well as other doggy games. We don’t play much at work, so while Leo is with me the whole day, we don’t interact as much as we would if we were home. Sometimes he’ll come over to my desk and put his head in my lap, and more times than […]

Leo’s Battle of the Bath Pt. 2

Leo’s Battle of the Bath Pt. 2

If you haven’t read part one of his battle with baths or want to see puppy pictures of Leo in a bath (and a video!), here it is. In that post, Leo was almost 4 months old. He is now coming up on his 2nd birthday in a couple months and he absolutely loves water. Whenever we take him to the beach he’ll dash towards the water and stay in […]

Leo’s Doggy Daycare Fun

Leo’s Doggy Daycare Fun

Every once in a while, instead of going to work with one of us or staying home alone, Leo gets to go to daycare. When he was younger, he would go to daycare much more frequently because we didn’t want to leave him home by himself until one of us came home from work. Now that he’s older we can fully trust him to be a good boy while we’re […]

Leo vs The Christmas Tree

Leo vs The Christmas Tree

Last year we were pretty worried Leo would knock down the Christmas tree. Luckily he didn’t, but he did come close! He was very interested in the tree, though. Every chance he got, he would sniff all around it and nudge the lights and ornaments. We made the right decision in buying all plastic ornaments because he would pull them down as well. This year he is still very much […]

Leo Gets a Roommate

Leo Gets a Roommate

Over the past week, we have been dog-sitting Leo’s favorite doggy-friend, Oscar, and he has some very mixed feelings about it. Leo and Oscar have come a long way (see here and here) and now they get along really well and love to play with each other. When they are together, it’s usually due to us visiting Oscar’s home and staying for a weekend. This week, it’s just us and […]

Leo vs the Car

Leo vs the Car

Since the weekend we brought Leo home (about 1.5 years ago), Leo has been in the car just about every single day, whether it was going to work with me during the week or going to the park or beach on the weekends. After spending 1.5 years taking car rides daily, you’d think he’d grow accustomed to car rides and maybe even like them, right? Nope, not Leo. There has […]

Leo’s Rainy Day Adventures

Leo’s Rainy Day Adventures

Leo absolutely loves the rain and would play in it all day and night, given the choice. Not only is he fascinated by it, he loves to jump in all the puddles in his path. Although I wouldn’t be surprised if he did that because he knows a thorough towel drying session is coming and he loves getting towel dried. Unfortunately for him, we don’t like to stand in the […]
