A couple months back we met Leo, my friends’ Bernese Mountain Dog puppy.
Leo is the cutest little stinker
Recently we invited Andrew, Megan and Leo over for another playdate. I couldn’t wait to see the little pup. Except there was one problem. Someone stole their puppy and replaced him with this dog:
Where did Leo go!?!?
Andrew and Megan insist this Leo is the same Leo we met, but I’m not sure. Neither are Eko and Penny.
They towered over Leo less than two months ago
Now they look back at me saying, “No way this is the same guy.”
Despite our uncertainty, we welcomed the new Leo with open arms. Penny even decided to show him a few tricks.
“Ok, you see how Andrew has food? Now go over there and overwhelm him with cuteness in hopes he drops some.”
“Nice try kid, you almost had it.”
I’ll admit, this new Leo did have some striking similarities to the puppy we met.
He knew how to beg for a turn with the antler
And he certainly knew how to give those same puppy-eyes
The pups and I still think Andrew and Megan might be pranking us. But new Leo seems like a sweetheart so I guess we’ll play along.
Imposter or not, this cuddle monster is impossible not to love
Alright new Leo, we won’t report you to the authorities, but we’re watching you closely. We even took down your dimensions – you’re nearly Penny’s height, you’re about twice as wide and you tip the scales around fifty pounds.
If the next time we schedule a playdate with Leo, Megan and Andrew show up with a dog twice this size we’ll know they’re messing with us. Surely no dog can grow this quickly…
