If you read this post, you know that Lenny is the inspiration behind my starting J.P. Dogs. I’d taken a picture of him on that fateful day but didn’t get his human’s contact info. Delightfully, word about J.P. Dogs is spreading and I received an email from Lenny’s mama because she’d seen the blog! She sent me this photo of Lenny on vacation in Gotts Island, Maine. When I look at this photo, I FILL with glee.
Dog: Lenny is an eight and a half month old Tibetan Terrier. He goes by Lenny, but “his formal name is Leonard III. John’s (Lenny’s human) two childhood dogs were Leonard and Leonard Jr., so Lenny is following family tradition. It suits him!”
Humans: Lenny lives with Britta and John on Boylston Street. “John has lived in JP for 9 years, Britta has lived in JP for 4. Lenny has only been here since March, but that’s more than half of his life!”
Does your J.P. Dog have any funny quirks, odd behaviors, or defining characteristics?
“Lenny always has to go find something to carry in his mouth when he is greeting someone he loves. He prefers to carry one of his toys, but if he can’t find one, any object will do: a shoe, a rag, a piece of paper, a rock – whatever’s available and portable!
What do you love most about your J.P. Dog?
“Lenny loves nothing more than being with us and gives the most effusive greetings. He gets very excited to see us again after short or long absences whether we are coming home from work at the end of the day, or we have been in another room for ten minutes! It is the best ego boost ever.”
Your J.P. Dog’s favorite outdoor spots in J.P.?
“He loves the park near the pond – especially when there are other dogs there who want to wrestle or play chase! He also loves the Arboretum.”
