Lenny

17 07 2011

Some of you know my dog. Some of you do not. I was having a hard time today thinking what I wanted to write about. The I thought “hey, my posts are usually a few thousand words, and the saying goes ‘a picture is worth 1000 words,’ so why not show off Leonard?”

This is Lenny. Lenny was rescued from a puppy mill and rehabbed before being adopted out. He and his brother Squiggy were saved from a bad situation in West Virginia. No, you are not seeing things and it isn’t a cute trick – Lenny only has one ear. Well, technically he has the other ear, but it sustained an injury when he was born in the unsafe conditions and cauliflowered. His hearing is not impacted by it, he just looks a little silly at times.

Yes, he is adorable. No, you can not have him. He weighs 7.5 lbs. He is full-grown. He also has extra teeth and pretty stinky breath, but brushing his teeth regularly helps that.

 

Yeah, he knows he's cute.

 

All the sadness of the world can be seen in the eyes of a dog

 

Pure, unadulterated rascal

 

He was so insanely happy to be in the car

 

Yes, he can shame anyone.

 

I hope you enjoyed the Lenny show. Pens Preview: Kris Letang coming tomorrow night or Tuesday morning.

Actually that’s his “it’s cold and I’m not getting off this bed” look. He’s hilarious during the cold months. He has a little sweater with an embroidered bone and he likes the covers pulled up over him when I leave.

Spikey on the outside, marshmallow fluff on the inside. That’s how I like my Walt.

I love Lenny. I think regular Lenny updates are a must for this blog.

Hopefully there will be somewhat regular updates.

Lenny is so cute! I agree with Yinzer – he doesn’t look sad. He’s just content.

Little did I know that 5 minutes later he’d be tear-assing up and down the hallway at full speed like a maniac.

Oh, little dogs.

I did not know Lenny’s story and what a sad/happy one it is. Sad because places of such evil still exist and happy because no one could love him more than you! What a sweet little buddy and oh, I cannot handle the cute!

Just think – one day, maybe, possibly, you could get to meet him (he’ll just lick you and run around and jump at your knees until you pick him up…and then he’ll want right back down to jump at your knees again).

Lenny is solid!

In case you’re wondering Walt this is marioISgod from cblog. I was just lurking and read that you were banned or something and was led to your blog. Good stuff. Pets are the best! Keep up the good work and I will check in for Letangblog!

Yeah, Bubbles dropped me a line – perhaps it was time to move on from being in there and doing my own thing. Glad to have you here. Hopefully we’ll see you around in other posts.

Oh, God, Letangblog is already making me pull my hair out. What the eff kind of season did he have? 50 points this year, +15…but only had something like 9 points total from February-onward. Ugh. Defense up, offense “down” (without actually being down).

Just imagine seeing him every day. I’m not a small guy and I’ve got this little 7 lb bag of furry fury. The contrast is hilarious.

I’m glad he found a good home, If there is anything I can’t stand it’s animals living in bad situations

“No, you can not have him.”

Oh. *sadly grumbles*

I hope that there are regular cute dog posts here like there are at Joe Mallozzi’s blog: http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/

Hey Walt, glad to see you in zombie form last night.
Lenny’s the TK of dogs. Good stuff. Looking forward to seeing you rip Tanger a new one (as I think you alluded to in the Z post)
