Texas Trip: Part II

After spending a night in Houston, mom and my Big Buddy (who you'll meet soon) took me on a road trip to Austin! Traveling by car has always been my preferred method of transportation, especially since I have my own seat.

Austin was my first home, and I love going back to visit for many reasons. The BIGGEST is definitely my cousin Leo.

Leo is a Rhodesian Ridgeback, and even though we're only 3 months apart, he weighs 110lbs more than me, and his butt is too tall for me to sniff. When mom brought me home for the first time, Leo was ecstatic that he had a new toy to play with! On the other hand paw, I had a few reservations about this horse-like beast that I heard could hunt lions in Africa.

While Leo and I definitely experienced our fair share of squabbles....

...I eventually realized that all he wanted to do was cuddle.

Now that we're both a little more mature, Leo and are I are the best of friends. When I visited him in Austin, Leo let me use his crate...

....and even shared his toys (something I'm working on).

When it was time to leave, Leo and I said our good-byes and tried not to whimper. 

See you soon Leezorator, I miss you!


  1. I love the picture of Henry and Leo on the couch! And I have the same seat for Spencer. :-)

  2. Why didn't you choose to get a Rhodesian Ridgeback too?

  3. You look like your visit was so much fun! You will miss your friend
