BFF in the Making?

Today Leo and I visited with my friends Angie and Seamus and their new 'puppy' Bailey. Now Bailey is a rescue dog as well and is thought to be about 2 years old, which makes her probably 6 months older than Leo. She is also a couple of inches taller and 10 pounds heavier. Leo, however, is as solid as a brick house.

These two hit it off from the moment we arrived at the house. There was the initial sniffing and acknowledging and the we took them out to the backyard and let them go. They took off running and playing like they had been together all their lives. During the 4+ hours that we were over there, the two of them played and wrestled.

Upon coming home, Leo had dinner and slept and slept and slept. I've realized 2 things out of this little experiment...

1. Leo is going to be fine staying with Bailey and family while I'm treking through Europe.
2. Upon my return from Europe, Leo is going to be spending more time with other dogs; including dog parks and definitely Doggie Day care because Momma likes a worn out pooch!!

AWESOME! He just needed someone his own size :)

I'm also thinking one of my dogs is going to be a doggy day care regular at some point....
