Leo the Garbage Picker

Leo the Garbage Picker

Recently, Leo has developed this new behavior, and it’s entirely my fault. The garbage can never interest Leo, whether it was open or closed. I was always surprised that he wouldn’t try and knock it over to get the remains of dinner or whatever else might smell good in there. Leo was notorious for counter surfing especially during the time between cooking a meal and cleaning up afterward so I […]

Leo’s New Buddy

Leo’s New Buddy

Things could not get any cuter here at the PetMeds office. There is now a new pup here who visits about once a week. He’s still part-time, but maybe he’ll switch over to full-time soon. His name is Dexter and Leo can’t get enough of him! On days when Dexter is in the office, Leo is head-over-paws excited to sniff and play with Dexter from the moment he catches his […]

Leo Loves His New Home

Leo Loves His New Home

Last weekend, we upended Leo’s life by moving into a new apartment, and he was, understandably, NOT happy about it. The days I took him over after work and on Saturday, he was excited to explore the place and sniff every crevice and corner. However, after the initial excitement wore off, he was clearly stressed out and wouldn’t relax until we went home for the night. On Sunday, the day […]

Leo’s First Move Pt. 2

Leo’s First Move Pt. 2

We found a Leo-approved apartment that is large-breed friendly and are moving in this weekend. We already know Leo is going to love it because of the fenced-in dog park that’s 30 feet from our front door, but we also know he’s going to stress out and get upset from all of the changes since he’s spent most of his life living in our current apartment. Leo can already tell […]

Leo Loves the Beach

Leo Loves the Beach

When we first brought Leo to the beach, he was about 12 weeks old. He was excitedly played in the sand and seaweed but was not a fan of the water. He would sniff at it but as soon as a wave would break and the swell would rise, Leo would run for dear life in the opposite direction. For some time, I was sure Leo was the only Golden […]

Leo’s Day

Leo’s Day

In my totally unbiased (just kidding!) opinion, Leo has a pretty exciting life for a pup. While we make sure to feed him at the same time every day and also put him to bed and wake him up at the same time, that’s about as routine as Leo’s day gets. It’s pretty rare that Leo does the same thing more than 2 days in a row. Since both Erich […]

Leo’s Treats

Leo’s Treats

Finding the right treats for Leo was not a challenge I was prepared for nor was it something I thought would be a huge deal. I did know that I wanted Leo to have high-quality, healthy treats that didn’t contain anything artificial flavors or preservatives or fillers. Since we feed Leo Blue Buffalo Large Breed Puppy food and he both loves it and responds well to it, we got him […]
