Eighty Five Paws

Dear Leo, This morning we played outside together and it was not as cold as it was yesterday. Your shovel or trowel as mama and dad say, was not frozen with water, we learned that when you splashed the water down. It surprised you and mama and we all laughed. When you checked on yourContinue reading “Eighty Five Paws”

Eighty Four Paws

Dear Leo, Sometimes our routine changes during the day. I think between the two of us I don’t like changes as much as you do. My go to way of processing it is running around in a circle. I get the feelings outside of myself after I run. This particular morning we all had aContinue reading “Eighty Four Paws”

Dear Leo, Hello buddy! Today you went with the mama to the book place. You didn’t smell like soap when you came home though. I wonder if they did the bubbles with you? I’m currently sleeping on part of the blankets on the couch to hold up your fort. It’s an important job and IContinue reading “Eighty Three Paws”

Eighty Two Paws

Dear Leo, Today you started sharing your feelings rather early in the morning. 4:30 a.m. to be exact. I heard momma move around and then she and dada were up and at ‘em before I knew it. I ignored dada when he came downstairs. I’m good at pretending to be sleeping. Then I start groaningContinue reading “Eighty Two Paws”

Dear Baby, A word of advice, don’t run on the slippery wet concrete or rocks unless you have paws and long nails. You will fall. I notice these human fails or learning opportunities as our humans say. This morning we were playing in the back yard. I wasn’t particularly happy about any of it becauseContinue reading “Eighty One Paws”

Dear Baby, Today was holiday, or at least that’s what I heard repeated throughout the day. The humans love to make lots of foods on this day. They often hang out in the kitchen, it gets really warm and cozy in the house and everything smells delicious. I like to be near their ankles inContinue reading “Eighty Paws”

Seventy Nine Paws

Dear Leo, Today you and I had breakfast together. Momma helped me finish my crunchy food. I didn’t want to eat it, but she put a little bit of chicken in with it, then she fed me each piece or two pieces together. You helped me by laughing, calling my name, and being near me.Continue reading “Seventy Nine Paws”

Seventy Seven Paws

Dear Leo, Do you ever cross your paws and feel really relaxed while laying down? That’s how I like to start my naps. I usually curl up on the couch, think of things like running in the sand in summer, and then I begin to drift off to sleep. I often wake up and realizeContinue reading “Seventy Seven Paws”

Seventy Four Paws

Dear Leo, Today we played in the backyard. You were so excited when mom booped me, that you came running over and hollered about it. You’re a silly lil’ dude. I like to get all the doggy smells in first things in the morning, so I mill around taking in the smells on the groundContinue reading “Seventy Four Paws”

Seventy Three Paws

Dear Leo, Today is a good day for naps. We had a nice long neighborhood walk with daddy today. We went the same route with him that we do with mama. You filled daddy in on all the important things, the plants, the squirrels, the dried sunflowers, the cats, the leaves, the wind, the trees,Continue reading “Seventy Three Paws”
