BIG DOODLES NEED LOVE TOO!

Is it just me, or when someone talks about “cuddling-up” with their pup, do you envision something small and compact like “Toto” from the movie classic “Wizard of Oz?”…

Toto-The-Wizard-of-Oz

Or does your mind conjure up something like this?…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I would bet “Toto” images appear more often!
At 7 months old, Leo was the same size as our two year old Doodle…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So cuddling with him came as easy to us as it was with Harley. Then almost overnight I looked at Leo again and OMD, our “Gentle Giant” had arrived. My boys were no longer the same size…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BTW, can you tell whether or not I gave a “sit” or “stay” command with that picture?

Whenever people ask about their age, Leo’s size triggers the same responses:

  • Oh my, He’s the baby?
  • This is the youngest?
  • He’s too big, how much bigger is he going to get?

Generally after that, Harley becomes the crowd pleaser. Now don’t get me wrong, Harley works harder for it. When people approach us, Harley gets to wagging his tail so hard, his entire backside starts to dance! Leo just stands around like the stage manager almost as if he “wills” Harley to perform for treats and praise!

The older Leo gets, the more of a “cuddle-bug” he becomes. Poor thing still try’s to sit wherever you sit, underestimating his size most of the time. He likes to get “up in your face” also, and will command attention from you too!…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Non the less, our “big guy” is truly unique with his comical personality and affectionate manner…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Always – always – always giving tons of love. He seems to constantly remind us not to be thrown off track by his size, and to always remember: “Big guys need love too”
