leo.


I have a list a mile and a half long of things I want to tell + show you about our new house, our new neighborhood, and all things in between. But for now, I'll show you the newest member of our family. The sunshine of our day(s).

Leo. 

This sweet little boy came to be ours yesterday afternoon and is never leaving (since we love him too much). The way we got him is one of the saddest stories (it still makes me tear up thinking about it): my mother-in-law heard from a former coworker that Leo (then Bentley) was in a foster home because his owners were going to put him under since their cat didn't get along with him! Can you imagine putting that sweet boy under?? Neither could we. So we got in contact with the right people, did a major shopping spree at Walmart + Petsmart, and took him home and introduced him to Karma (our cat).

Needless to say, he has completely turned our lives upside down. We now have to wake up early to take him out, come home for lunch, and give him treats after he listens to us say "Sit", and snuggle with him. :) It's been an adjustment...

but a good one. :)

He's super cute. And I'm looking forward to hearing about all the other changes going on, when you've got a few free seconds!

I can hardly believe that someone would put down a dog simply because it didn't get along with their cat.... how horribly sad!!! I'm happy to hear he is with you now instead!!!

Those first months are SO hard. We are still learning with Ellie. Life is never the same, but in the best possible way.

Leo looks like such a sweetie.
