On August 1st, I surprised with the best birthday present of all time. His name is Leonardo (Leo) and although I’m partial, he is about darn-near the cutest pup (and maltipoo) on the planet! I’m kind of proud of the little guy. In his first month-and-a-half of living with me, he’s wee pad trained, can sit, shake and give paw. And he brings immense joy to everyone who sees him (including the barristas at the Starbucks drive-thru window, who have to hold him when we come by.) He’s gone from a 1.5 pound wee little thing to 5.5 pounds of “all boy”!
