Leo Gets Fixed

Leo Gets Fixed

Last week, Erich and I decided that it was finally time to get Leo neutered. We always knew we wanted to get him neutered, but we were iffy on the timing of it. Of all the articles I read, half of them said we should wait until he’s 18-24 months old and the other half said we should do it before he turned 1 year old. All of them said […]

How to help out your senior pet

Unfortunately, time passes much too quickly.

Leo Graduated!

Leo Graduated!

*cue the graduation song* I am proud to announce that, through hard work and intense late night study sessions, Leo has successfully passed and graduated from puppy class! I’m so happy we did a puppy training class. It was definitely worth the money. Not only was it fun, but we learned a lot. In addition to “sit”, “down”, and “come”, we were able to teach Leo “leave it” and loose-leash walking. […]
