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 […]

Leo Gets a Roommate

Leo Gets a Roommate

Over the past week, we have been dog-sitting Leo’s favorite doggy-friend, Oscar, and he has some very mixed feelings about it. Leo and Oscar have come a long way (see here and here) and now they get along really well and love to play with each other. When they are together, it’s usually due to us visiting Oscar’s home and staying for a weekend. This week, it’s just us and […]

Leo vs the Car

Leo vs the Car

Since the weekend we brought Leo home (about 1.5 years ago), Leo has been in the car just about every single day, whether it was going to work with me during the week or going to the park or beach on the weekends. After spending 1.5 years taking car rides daily, you’d think he’d grow accustomed to car rides and maybe even like them, right? Nope, not Leo. There has […]

Leo’s Rainy Day Adventures

Leo’s Rainy Day Adventures

Leo absolutely loves the rain and would play in it all day and night, given the choice. Not only is he fascinated by it, he loves to jump in all the puddles in his path. Although I wouldn’t be surprised if he did that because he knows a thorough towel drying session is coming and he loves getting towel dried. Unfortunately for him, we don’t like to stand in the […]

Leo’s Floppy Ears

Leo’s Floppy Ears

Leo’s floppy ears have always been one of my favorite things about him, especially when he was a puppy. When we brought him home, Leo’s ears were much too big for his head and it took him a while to grow into them. It was adorable. When he would lie down, his ears would reach the ground before his head, and if he tilted his head to the side, his […]

Leo’s Food

Leo’s Food

Before we brought Leo home, one of the things I thoroughly researched was what kind of food we would be giving him and for how long. We knew we would be getting a bag of food to bring home when we picked him up so we made sure to buy an extra bag of that food to make the transition to his new food easier on the stomach.  Since Leo […]

Leo vs Costumes

Leo vs Costumes

This year for Halloween, I’ve decided not to get Leo a costume, partly because it came up really quickly, but also because Leo does not like wearing costumes. Anything that I put on him other than his every day wear, he just tries to rip off. Leo has no problem wearing his collar or harness, but whenever I put anything else on him, he spends a good amount of time […]
