Doggie Dynamics:

Quick Bio:

Following the humans around the house.

Not getting him out of the kennel fast enough.

Favorite Toy:
Sparky's green elephant.

Arrival Story:
Leo was presented at the animal emergency clinic in a lifeless state on 8/19/05. His head was either stepped on or he was dropped on his head by a small child. The physical exam found blood pooled in the whites of his eyes and diminished neuro functions. He was unable to walk and if propped up he just fell over. Please, if you commit to owning a toy or small breed dog, and you have small children, I would urge you to reconsider. The former owners were unable to financially care for Leo so he was surrendered.

After just over a week, Leo was running all over the house like a normal pup. Fortunately, there seems to be no lasting damage from the injury. Leo is a wonderful companion and is as sweet-natured as can be.

Forums Motto:
Born To Be Wild

Screams (not barks) as though being tortured to get out of his kennel.

More Quirks:
Slamming his body or his butt against Sparky (our chihuahua) for fun.

I'm In Big Trouble

It seems momma discovered my dirty little secret. You see, I tee-teed all over her bedroom while she slept. After a week of sleeping with her, she became suspicious of an unpleasant odor in the room. She switched all the lights off, turned on a scary light, pointed it at the floor, and my pee-pee glowed. Boy, she was hoppin' mad.

Three and a half gallons later of pouring some stuff on all the spots did not help; it still smells. Now she's saying the carpet will have to be replaced, but the worst part is that I can't sleep with her anymore. I'm jailed for good now. I thought it was okay to do that as long as she didn't see me. How was I to know that she would ever find out? Humans sure have their ways of knowing everything.

In other news, I now look like Pebbles from the Flintstones. I have a pony-tail on top my head 'cause momma wanted me to be able to see where I'm going. She really is a nice momma.


Destination: Vet Clinic

Tuesday morning, momma woke up early and took me for a ride. Something was definitely up, but I had a blast, looking out the window and helping mom with the wheel. Upon our arrival, my suspicions became keenly aroused. That smell...where do I know that odor? Oh no! Not the vet clinic! I squirmed like the dickens to escape any possible peril which might await me, but mom held onto me really tight.

A super nice lady took me out of momma's arms. Mom scribbled on some papers, talked about how sweet I am to the other lady and then left. The nice lady gently put a mask over my face. The room became hazy and despite my protests, I slipped into a dreamy state where I ruled a big forest and all the animals were at my beck and call. There were no potty rules, no limit to food (all you could eat) and best of all, no crates. We chased rabbits and squirrels until we were worn out. I had the time of my life.

When I awoke, something felt....different. Ah! Something was missing! Oh, no! My genatalia shrunk and I have a slice mark near the area! What the...?? Oh, well. I'm alive again and bursting with energy. I couldn't wait to return to my wonderful new home.

Momma came to get me the next day. Even though I was more than a little perturbed at the mutilation I was forced to endure, I couldn't help my enthusiasm at seeing momma again. I wagged my tail and licked her face while she giggled and buried her face in my beard.

My siblings greeted me with open paws (after sniffing my rear end first) and we all settled back into our boisterous routine. All of us are missing our important parts now, but that only means we are that much closer.


Sparky Finally Likes Me

Yay! I finally won him over. It just took time and persistence. My body slamming technique is what sealed the deal. At first he didn't like me slamming my body against his, but now he sees how fun it can be. He's really tough - so solid - his body doesn't really move when I do it. Probably more fun for me than for him. As long as he likes me and it doesn't make mom mad, everything is cool.

Thanks again to all my pup pals who sent nice e-mails, prayers, rosettes, bones, etc. to encourage my recovery. It definitely worked 'cause I'm as good as new.
