Leo and Bean

This past December, when Sabrina came home for Christmas, she brought along both of her sweet cats (Kamaji and Dusty) and her gentle rescue boy Leo…

She told me she had tried to get a picture of him several times before, but it had proven to be an impossible task; Leo is like most other dogs who know when a camera is pointed at them – which of course means he looks anywhere but the camera's direction. However, we were determined to get a good photo of him, even if it meant resorting to trickery, distraction techniques, or flattery…

We clearly underestimated Leo's intelligence… by the way, his "proper" name is Leopold Rogue, so named because Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was just out in theaters when Sabrina adopted him.

Almost! He almost looked!

We had just about given up (mostly because it was freezing out), when Sabrina decided to give it one last-ditch effort: she hoisted Leo up in her arms to see if she could bodily turn him toward the camera…

Nope, but close….

  1. Paulette, I’m swooning for this smart and shy fluff of pupper! Leo is so cute! Do you know the IG account “mysterypibble”? Leo is reminding me of him–and in more than just looks! What sweeties!

  2. Totally understand your missing them. My “baby” girl lives 900 miles away with 2 kitties. So wonderful when we’re together — just like you & Sabrina. Love our girls!!!

  3. Awesome pics of Sabrina and Leo. He looks like a sweetie and thanks to Sabrina for rescuing him…we have two rescues. Rescued dogs really seem to appreciate having a family. Love it!

  4. Hooray for determination! Leo is beautiful, as is your sweet Sabrina. The best part of your blog is having the privilege of watching your kids grow up. They are all special girls.

  5. Love that you kept trying as the shots are great! Your girls are all amazing and have turned into such giving independent women! Of course, they are also gorgeous but your heart must just burst with pride every time you look at them! I know you do enjoy your time with them and their pets! See you soon!
