Leo’s Sweet Dreams

Leo’s Sweet Dreams

When Leo’s not preoccupied with getting attention from anyone, he’s likely sleeping somewhere in an uncomfortable-looking position. Leo loves to nap. As soon as we settle in to work, he usually gets comfortable and starts his first nap of the day. Yep, Leo definitely naps on the job. 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 […]

Leo is the worst guard dog

Leo is the worst guard dog

Leo is many things, but one thing he is not is a guard dog. He doesn’t have one aggressive bone in his body. The only thing Leo has going for him that makes him seem intimidating is his 95 lb, muscle-packed body. If he barked or growled, he would seem more intimidating too because he has a very loud and thunderous bark, but we can only get him to bark […]

Leo Chews

Leo Chews

Leo has some massive chompers inside his mouth and he sure knows how to use them! When he was a puppy we always had to make sure Leo had something to chew on or else he would resort to the furniture. Most of our furniture survived except the corners of the TV console and a side table. We thought the KONG classic would’ve been perfect for Leo, but he was […]

Leo the Gatekeeper

Leo the Gatekeeper

In my office, I have a baby gate that keeps Leo safe inside all day and prevents him from bothering my coworkers.  When Leo was younger, I had a smaller gate. After he knocked it over a few times and got out, I got a taller and sturdier one for my peace of mind. Lately, I’ve been trying to train Leo to stay in my office with the gate open, […]

Leo’s First Hurricane

Leo’s First Hurricane

Last week we got news that a hurricane was heading our way and since it was also our first hurricane since living in Florida, Erich and I wasted no time in preparing ourselves and Leo for what seemed to be heading our way. We had recently bought a bag of food for Leo, so we had about a month’s worth of food for him, but we had to go and […]

Leo the Giant Furball

Leo the Giant Furball

Leo may not have a coat that reaches show dog standards, but he really does have a beautiful, full coat with fluffies in all the right places. With that in mind, maintaining his coat requires a lot of work. Leo needs weekly brushing sessions to keep his thick coat shiny and free of dead fur. He also needs it because he’s prone to getting mats behind his ear and armpits. […]
