Leo’s Toy Box

Leo’s Toy Box

As a spoiled puppy, Leo of course has his own toy box. It’s filled with his favorite tug ropes, squeaky squirrels, his blanket, and whatever else he’s acquired over the past couple years. Since we’ve been working from home, I’ve been able to pick up on Leo’s funny behaviors. Every morning, after I get settled into my work day, Leo likes to rummage through his toy box picking the perfect […]

Leo’s First Vacation

Leo’s First Vacation

Over 4th of July weekend, Leo went on his first long road trip. Right off the bat, we knew he wasn’t going to be happy about the car ride. However, we knew he would definitely be excited about his new buddy for the week and the very dog friendly beach a couple blocks away. On this trip, Leo left Florida for the first time and also visited South Carolina for […]

Leo is back at work

Leo is back at work

After a couple months staying home, Leo is back in the office! Coincidentally, just in time for Take Your Dog To Work Day. Since Leo’s new normal routine was staying home, I thought getting back into the “going to work” routine would be an adjustment for him. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Leo quite enthusiastically jumped right into the car the first morning we started going back in. To […]

Leo Found His Voice

Leo Found His Voice

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 […]

Leo’s Social Distancing

Leo’s Social Distancing

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 […]

Leo The Runner

Leo The Runner

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’s New Home Routine

Leo’s New Home Routine

Leo is finishing up his 3rd week of staying home full time and he has fully transitioned into his new routine. Leo’s new morning routine consists of a longer walk than he used to get, which he absolutely loves. 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, […]
