Life with Leo

Our Dog Nicky, 1995-2010, RIP

This is one of Sophie’s favorite photos of Leo and Nicky.  We had to put her down today, but we gave her one last really good day.

Leo, having a last rest on his “pillow with eyes”.

A cake for Nicky, with her age and initial (made out of pizza) on the top.

Goodbye sweet girl!  Thanks to New England English Springer Spaniel Rescue for placing Nicky with us — we’re so lucky we got eight great years with her.

February beach day with the dogs

I love Leo’s zen-like focus on the waves at the end of the movie.

Our Dog is Back!

After two weeks of living in her crate, Nicky is back !  She’s still very tippy (see her leaning to the right in the photo), but at least she was at the dinner table tonight, looking for scraps, just like her old self.

Spaniel Love

Filed under: Nicky, our Springer Spaniel — fehlhaber @ 4:31 pm

We mostly credit Sophie with passing on her love of spaniels to Leo. But here’s evidence that I loved them too!

I’m probably about 7 here. These are Grandpa Leo’s dogs, Junie and Peaches, I think — they are the ones I remember best.
