Leo the Lovebug

Leo the Lovebug

One of Leo’s greatest qualities is that he is so loving. He loves anyone and everyone unconditionally. I’m absolutely positive and also worried he would walk away with anyone. Nothing, except for food and squeaky toys, makes him happier than the presence of other people.  At work he always enthusiastically greets anyone willing to say hi to him. Even at the park Leo makes sure to say hi to every […]

Leo’s Walking Adventures Pt.  2

Leo’s Walking Adventures Pt. 2

Since Leo was a little puppy one of the biggest challenges we faced daily was walking him. He was always a puller and we went through many harnesses and collars to help the situation as well as many training sessions to help the situation. About a year ago, we found a front-clip harness that worked wonders and we still use today. Walking is always a fun time for Leo and […]

Leo Loves the Cold

Leo Loves the Cold

There’s been a cold front moving across South Florida (lows in the high 30’s/low 40’s) and unlike the iguanas, Leo has been loving every second of it. He is so much more energetic and will tolerate longer walks. If Leo had his way, the weather would be chilly all year round. We are hoping to take him up north so he could see snow because I know he would have […]

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 […]
