Leo and Taco are my pets. I love them both dearly and look forward to sharing our adventures with you. They’re wonderful pets, and I couldn’t be happier to have them in my life. Now, say hello to Leo and Taco.

Leo is the first of my pets. He is a dog known by many names, (Leopold, Cody, Lilo – to name a few) but his given name is Leon Pavlov. This dog has been by my side for roughly five years now, and we’ve been through a lot together. He’s a friendly, little dog with a lovable personality and eyes that stare straight into your soul.
Leo immediately stole my heart when he leapt into my arms and started sniffing my ear. Not much has changed since then except he grew slightly and learned that licking me gets my attention far faster than sniffing. He has never had a sense of personal space, and I’m fairly certain he never will.
Leo’s got some weird habits. He likes to sleep under the covers, roll around under his dog bed, and wipe his face on everything after he eats. He’ll steal your spot when you get up, and the older he gets, the less inclined he is to give it back. Once upon a time, he would move immediately, but lately he’s been pushing his luck. He’s been sat on many times at this point, but it doesn’t seem to faze him.
This dog has been on many of my adventures with me and has had to adjust to a variety of new homes. He’s always been very good about it, for which I am deeply grateful. Where we live now there is a dog park, a dog beach, and lots of dog-friendly establishments. It’s basically a dog paradise, and I’m happy to say he seems to really like it.
Taco is a horse. His mother, Belle, was also my horse, but I recently sold her. He is very outgoing and curious, though he has gotten more rebellious as he’s aged. Sadly, he had to stay in Minnesota and couldn’t come with me on my latest move. I miss him dearly and think of him often. Leo, who absolutely loved visiting the farm, also misses him.
Visiting Taco at the farm is almost always a lot of fun. He walks right up to you and has no qualms about being around people. He’ll sniff at your clothes and hair, usually looking for something to eat. When I would saddle up Belle and go for a ride, both Taco and Leo would happily follow along. My three beautiful pets and I made quite a group wandering around the farm.
Watching Taco grow for the last year and half has amazed me. At the rate he’s going, I’m pretty sure he’s going to be a very large horse once he’s fully-grown. I am hoping to be reunited with him someday, but in the meantime, I know he’s in good hands. He has lots of friends at the farm and is as happy as can be.
