In recent weeks, Leo has become much more vocal than he used to be. Not only is he barking more, but he is also making all kinds of noises. He even howled for the first time! Thankfully, he isn’t barking incessantly. Now that we are home all the time, Leo spends a lot of time sitting by the sliding doors watching what’s going on outside. If someone or something he […]
Like most of us and our pets, Leo has been feeling the effects of social distancing. Unfortunately, Leo doesn’t understand why he hasn’t gone to the park or the beach, and he really doesn’t understand why we don’t stop and say hello to the neighbors on our walks. Now, every time we see other people or dogs on our walks Leo lights up and tries to direct the walk towards […]
For a while now Leo has been pretty good off-leash in certain situations. At the dog park, he usually ends up walking with us along the trail. Even at the beach, he’ll run in and out of the water or play with dogs walking by but generally stay near us. When we are visiting his best friend, Oscar, we need to block off the porch or dock so Leo doesn’t […]
Leo is finishing up his 3rd week of staying home full time and he has fully transitioned into his new routine.

We are getting up at the same time to feed Leo at his normal feeding time and using the time it takes to commute to work to give Leo a nice, […]
Leo has been home for a full week now and he’s not happy about it. Even though he is getting the same amount of exercise every day (maybe even more), he is confused by the change in routine and unhappy about not being able to see all of his friends at work.
Although Leo’s 2nd birthday is just around the corner, he is still brimming with excitement at all times. When Leo was a puppy he went through a phase of tinkling when he was excited. Thankfully, for my carpet’s sake, he grew out of that. Now his usual form of “can’t. contain. this. excitement.” is an uncontrollable butt wiggle that is not in sync with his tail. Sometimes his excitement can […]
No matter how well we try to make it seem that everything is normal, Leo always knows when we’re about to go on a trip. Either he can understand us when we’re talking about it or he can just feel it in the air. Even though Leo has a great time with Oscar or with the other pups at daycare, being away from home and away from us is stressful […]
