Leo mellowed out
Where did my little monster go? It seems as though a few months ago, I was at my wit’s end trying to keep up with Leo’s antics and puppy zoomies. Once upon a time, zoomies were a daily occurrence. Every day after a morning potty break, Leo would run around our apartment in figure eights while simultaneously jumping between the bed and couch. Surprisingly, he didn’t break a single thing. In the evenings after work, Leo would also have at least 1 more zoomies session.
When Leo wasn’t zoomie-ing he was getting into anything and everything. We couldn’t take our eyes off of him, and if we did let him out of our sight, there was a pretty good chance, we’d find him doing something we didn’t want him doing.
Leo is no longer my little monster. He’s now my calm little cucumber. I can’t even remember the last time Leo went into zoomie-mode. It’s a little bittersweet because it was such a cute and funny thing to witness. Even though Leo is still a puppy (he’ll be turning 1 in a few weeks!) and definitely has his puppy moments, he’s matured a lot in the past few months. His terror moments are now few and far between. If Leo is out of sight at home, I no longer worry he’s off destroying something or peeing somewhere. If we’re watching tv or doing chores and we haven’t seen him in about 15 minutes, we usually find him sleeping by the door or in his crate, like the good boy he is.
I sometimes miss the crazy little puppy Leo used to be. Does it make me want another puppy? HA, not right now. I don’t think my patience has grown yet.
