Happy Golden Birthday Leo!


Yesterday was our wonderful one-eyed Boston Terrier Leo’s Golden Birthday!  The big 11! I am so lucky and blessed to have this little black and white bundle of joy in my life.  Thank you Leo for being such a great boy!

Samsung Cell Photos 232Over the weekend we did our special birthday tradition where Leo gets to go to the “toy store” and pick out any toy (or two) that he wants.  Leo is yelling at me in this photo because I am not playing like he wants me to!

Of course, as we all know, you can’t celebrate a birthday, none-the-less a GOLDEN birthday without your own special bowl of ice cream!  Leo got spoiled with ice cream and his very own dog-friendly cupcake.

Our very handsome one-eyed boy Leo decided to try out a new disguise today…we think he pulls it off very well 😉

This is our little Kuki monster, she is a Bug (Boston Terrier/Pug mix). Kuki has one ear that flops over and the other one that is perky, her eyes go in different directions, she has interesting markings…oh, and her tongue is too long for her little mouth, so it is sticking out 99% of the time. Kuki just looks schnockered in this photo or else like she is saying “the schnozzberries taste like schnozzberries!”

One goal for today: Go and put up a few flyers to help with Leo’s fundraiser. Hope that it will help as Leo is having a very bad eye day today. Leo has spent most of the day sleeping and is struggling to hold his little eye open at all. Yesterday he was playing and got bumped a couple of times, yelped and we could see his pain all evening and today 😦 Poor Leo dog. We also have to be very careful about how much time he spends in the sunshine because the sun makes his eye even worse and hurt more. If you can donate or help at all by sharing Leo’s story please do so: http://gogetfunding.com/project/leo-s-luxated-lens-surgery. If you are interested we can also send you the address for Leo’s vet so donations can be made directly to them.

“What is this silly moo cow doing on my head?”



Thought I would share all of these wonderful pictures of Leo through his life with you and then share the medical issue that he currently going through.  On April 2nd Leo had an emergency visit to the vet and we learned that he has an “anterior luxation” which means that the little fibers that hold his lens in place tore somehow and his lens came through his pupil and is sitting in the front of his eye.  This not only effects his vision, but is also painful because his eye is getting more fluid in it than it should.  Leo is on two different medications, one to help with pain and one to help with the eye swelling.  Unfortunately our options are limited and Leo will be needing to get enucleation surgery (aka my baby needs to have his eye removed).  Surgery is expensive and we are doing a fundraiser to help get enough money for Leo’s surgery.  The sooner we are able to do the surgery, the less pain Leo is in.    

To learn more about Leo’s condition & to donate please go to:  http://gogetfunding.com/project/leo-s-luxated-lens-surgery


Also, the more we can spread the word about Leo’s eye condition and surgery needs the better.  Please re-blog, share on facebook, tweet, pin, stumble and everything else you can do.




The milky white thing that you are seeing in Leo’s eye is his lens.


You can see that it is not comfortable for Leo to keep his eye open.  He is also tearing a lot which is causing the tear stains on his face.
