He's Neurotic, He's Anxious but he's so FULL OF LOVE! We adopted LEO 8 years ago from NEBHR, Life with LEO requires a great deal of patience due to his chronic anxiety & multiple phobias, but in the end, he may be the MOST LOVED BASSET OF ALL TIME! (at least by me anyway)
We adopted LEO in 2005 from NEBHR click on the link below to learn more about them!
Leo is 8 1/2 years old now and I couldn't believe it when my Vet told me that he is now a senior basset. This depresses me! I can see that he is getting a lot more white all around his face! I don't want him to get older! He is forever a terrible two year old to me, my little toddler! I can't wrap my brain around the fact that at 8 1/2 he's a senior already! They want him eating senior dog food and having senior blood work! Maybe just a way for the Vet to get some more money but even so, I am faced with the fact that he is getting older and I hate that! I want him to live forever! Despite all of his phobias, post traumatic stress and anxieties, I love him more than life and would be lost without him! He is sound asleep at my feet right now after having a mild anxiety attack over some rain earlier tonight! No thunder, No lightening, just some rain! POOR BABY!
