For Lenny, this IS big!

Most people take a simple "roll" of their dog as just typical dog stuff.

Well, for those of you that don't know Lenny's story, I adopted him 1.5 yrs ago as a 9 year old who lived in a cage 24/7 for all his nine years. Well, actually, when he was a "cute puppy" I think he was allowed out of his crate.

So, when I see this "simple behavior", I get all teary-eyed because Lenny has come A LONG WAY from trying to bite my face off and being non-social.

Wow! I cannot imagine keeping an animal locked up like that. My dog makes me feel guilty if she is in her crate for more than 15 minutes while I'm home. Good for you for giving him a real dog's life.

Thanks! While all my dogs are "rescues", Lenny is the one that had the most obvious issues. He is now just "one of the four musketeers".

Mr. Leornard Berstein looks very happy. What dog wouldn't be happy at your house? You and Lenny were meant to be together.

Thanks everyone! Lenny's just a "real dog" now. I love looking back at the dog diary I kept and the photos of him when he arrived. I swear, he has gotten YOUNGER!
