Oh, Leo!

We have known for quite a while that Leo does not like it when we hug. We will stand in the middle of the living room and hug in front of him just to make him upset. He howls and growls and barks at us until we stop. At one point this weekend, he actually sat between us on the floor as we were standing, trying to separate us! What we haven't been able to figure out is if he doesn't like the fact that I am hugging Tim or that Tim is hugging me. Well, we figured it out today! Tim had a knot in his back, so while I was home at lunch, I rubbed it a little as we were standing in the hallway. Leo just sat there and looked at us, so we decided to try a little experiment. I turned around and Tim started rubbing my back. Instantly, Leo was up howling and whining and jumping at Tim. Apparently he is quite protective of his mommy!

Thank you Randi! You're so sweet!! I'm sure I'm not the only one who's ever felt this way, but sometimes I think, "Oh my goodness, am I going to be a good mommy? I don't even know what I'm doing!" So thank you for your encouragment!!

I love YOUR blog!! That month of not posting was too long missy! :) I kept checking it thinking my blog updater thing wasn't work correctly and that you'd actually posted.

I don't know about you, but I love having a guard dog at home with me! Leo is so cute!!
