In Memory

Leo
May 2, 2013 - December 14, 2016

Leo passed away as the result of an accident on December 14, 2016.  It has taken me some time to be able to write and share this.  I want to focus on the happy times and the things he loved. 

Leo joined our family on May 2, 2013 and was the tiniest puppy.  He fit int he palm of my hand and fell asleep on the way to his new home.  He grew from that tiny puppy into a "big kid" who wanted to do everything the big dogs did.

Leo loved golf cart rides, cheese, cheesy crackers, treats, and eating in general.  He loved playing with tennis balls, sticks bigger than he was, his best dog friend Jack, and his best cat friend Thea.  He loved visits to Grammy and Grampy's house and truck rides to the feed store.  Leo loved belly rubs from me and playing "gotcha" with W.  He loved wallowing in the grass and napping in the sunshine.  He loved climbing in his bed at the end of the day and settling in for a good night's sleep. 

Leo was a rescue and while his life was short, he was loved and spoiled.  I always told him he was the greatest puppy dog ever.  He has forever left paw prints on our hearts!
