Leo’s evolution

I’ve known Leo, the adorable longhair dapple chocolate, for several years now; I remember when his parents first rescued him how shy and apprehensive he was. Recently I got to doxie-sit Leo and his brother Polie for a day, and Leo is significantly a more confident doxie today. He may never be the bold dachshund his brother is, but it was certainly a joy to watch him with his tail erect and head held high as the self-assured Leo explored and guarded the backyard. For me, it’s amazing to witness the evolution, and I attribute his measureable progress to his devoted parents. Great job!!!
