Leon is like a toddler - he couldn't have enough toys. One of his favorite toys is this crazy looking ... almost Daffy Duck looking toy. It doesn't squeak, though, it almost tweets like a bird. The first time Leon played with it was one of the most hilarious things we have ever seen. He picked it up, shook it like crazy and pretty much killed it. After finishing it off, he walked away satisfied with a job well done. After just a couple of steps, the duck started twittering and tweeting again. It was such a cartoonish moment how Leon reacted... he stopped in his tracks and slowly looked behind him. When he realized it was still alive he charged it and killed again. And once again ... the duck would not shut up after he killed it. He was so freaked out he even started whimpering and whining - totally frustrated that he couldn't kill the duck. JTK and I started calling it "Zombie Duck" because it kept coming back to life no matter how times Leon "killed" it. :)
|Leon's "stash" of toys|
When JTK came home from his Dad's tonight he commented that the house seems bigger without Leon in it. It's true - all the dogs we have in our house are at least 8 years old. TRex, Hopper and Cooper do get playful but none of them have the energy of Leon.
