dammit_leon I have stated to archive digital files and found several video clips of Leonard. IG video wasn't around at that time and I thought it would be fun to post a few clips so everyone could see just how ridiculous Leonard really was. We adopted Leonard in 2006, and he was super quirky. He despised boxes. Yes, boxes. This video was taken in early 2007. Hope you enjoy! 11mon

dammit_leon I would gladly stare at you forever for a hamburger today. I mean, I would gladly pay you in hamburger for a dollar today. I mean, I would gladly pay you Tuesday for a ....Zzzz....Zzzz....Zzzz. Occasionally, Leonard would fall asleep while begging for food. Bless him, he was one of a kind. 1y

dammit_leon First iPhone photo I ever took of Leonard, in 2009. He wasn't impressed. I was overjoyed. He thought joy came from cookies, not camera phones. He remained unimpressed. 1y

dammit_leon Dear Leonard,
It's been one year. One entire year since you left us and went to that big dog heaven in the sky. Has it really been a full year?
Not a day goes by without you still in my thoughts, Leonard - you are definitely a legend in my mind and heart...eternally.
I can say that Gertie doesn't clean up the floors as well as you, but she tries, she's just a pickier. She tries though and she misses you too; however, she is still holding onto that clam shell bed. Victoriously.
I miss you...some very close friends have joined you recently, please be kind to them, ok? I know you will.
I love you Leonard.
Be good, love always, Mom.

  •   jhfit24 Love this.. And miss all the pics.. 1y
  •   danishauree I won't deny that seeing this broke my heart. Although I did not know Leonard personally, I miss seeing this guy pop up on my feed a few times a week. He always made my day as well as your narrations! 1y
  •   maruett God bless u and ur darling little angel 😇 1y
  •   mizztobers_bt We lost two bulldogs this past year. One almost exactly a year ago as i write this. Even though the pain fades something always makes you remember. Our baby has an exersaucer that plays bingo was his name-o and our old mans nick name was bingo. Bittersweet. watching our rescue bully playing happily in what was tanks pool. i hope this past year has brought you some peace. 1y

dammit_leon Many friends have asked how Gertie is doing. She is doing ok -- been a bit more in my pocket lately, but I'm ok with that. This is the first time in Gertie's life she is solo -- have always had a pack in the house. Luckily, she gets to spend time with my Mom (and Hans II) while I am at work, so hopefully that provides her comfort. While I am not a fan of Hans II, he is providing companionship for Gertie...so I guess I'll dial down the my annoyance for him. I'll try. 2y
  •   roccobeefcake @dammit_leon Be strong Gertie. We miss Leon so much 2y
  •   misstickvsangel Leonard is like James Dean! Short life but so talented :) Gertie Try to influence Hans II in the good way. We all know Stars are in heaven... 2y
  •   poleninja13 Again my offer to "accidentally kidnap Hans II" still stands in any case he in anyway displeases Her Gertiness... 2y
  •   rockinhair7 Be strong Gertie!!! 2y

dammit_leon I made these dishwasher magnets in 2008 and I still use them. It's hard to tell, but Leonard is wearing a shower cap in the 'DIRTY' photo as we wanted to keep water out of his ears. I'm really missing him tonight. #squaready 2y
  •   monicraig So adorable : ) I love him and always will - miss you Leon 2y
  •   rix7775 I am sad because u are sad :( 2y
  •   cereal_naps leonard had the best life and best parents for him. its nice to know he is not in pain. it is hard for us but we are strong humans. good energy to your family and friends and us fans. everything will be okay. no one can replace leonard. we will always know him as the funny troublemaker full of love. 2y

dammit_leon Happy Easter . I had taken this picture a while ago in preparation for this Easter since I had been unable to bunny ears last year. As ever, Leonard was patient. While this is bittersweet, I wanted to share as it still makes me smile and ever so fondly think of him. #squaready 2y

dammit_leon I haven't been on IG the past few days while I start to cope with life without Leonard. To address a few comments, I would like to say that I will not delete this account, in fact; I will never delete this account. I do plan to make it private for a period of time while I sort out my feelings and figure out what I would ultimately like to do. I had been in process of putting together a photo book of Leonard prior to his untimely passing. A completion date is unknown at this time, but should be before Fall. I'm sure it's no surprise I have several pictures of Leonard...some never posted. While I shift gears to work on this book, I will post some Leonard photos on IG. I want to preserve and continue to share my memories of Leonard as it will help me with this process. As always, thank you for loving Leonard, understanding how important he is to me, and supporting me and my family while we grieve. Let's continue to celebrate his memory moving forward. Lots of love to you all, Mitsu aka Leonard's Mom #tweegram 2y
  •   poleninja13 Oh no. I was hoping this was not the case in that I had not seen posts from you. I'm so sorry. You've been having such tough times. Stay strong. 2y
  •   mugsey_chunk I think it would be cool to have a photobook of Leonard and all the witty captions youve posted. 2y
  •   rockinhair7 Nice to read your thoughts..... 2y
  •   emily_roberts89 Aww. Poor Leonard. He was such a joy on IG and I know he brought ten thousand times that joy to you guys. I'm so sorry. :(:( he will be missed very much. 2y
  •   jojomccowan I haven't been on IG in months and this was the first page I went to. So so sorry about your loss :( I was hoping I hadn't missed it but I'm glad the page is still here so I could know. I'll still think of Leonard whenever I think of IG. Again, I'm so very sorry :( 2y
  •   downtownarthurbrown I am so so sorry for your loss Mitsu. I just found out about this. I was sitting on my couch thinking, "there haven't been any recent leonard posts for a while..." (I haven't been great about checking my feed) and I got a horrible feeling. I am so sorry for your pain. As you know, I was a big fan of Leonard's and it was from him that I got the inspiration behind my Arthur chronicle. Please know my thoughts are with you as I continue to photograph Arthur and his antics. Leonard touched so many lives through your feed and made hundreds of people smile daily. I am very sad to know there will be no Leonard pics to look forward to. 2y
  •   valeriehaines My heart breaks. I can't imagine life without my Flex or Maggie. You will meet him again one day. Until them, remember him & he will be with u forever 2y

Hudson Leonard
dammit_leon [Friends: It is with an extremely heavy heart that I share the news of Leonard's passing. Leonard had a grand mal seizure last night and was unable to recover. It's been a long day, a long day struggling with this reality] Leonard, you were with our family for too short of a time. You'll always be my favorite mischievous bully getting into trouble and begging for forgiveness...which I always fell for. Our house has more chewed door frames and slobber on the walls than acceptable...but I'm ok with leaving those things as is. Maybe not the slobber. I still have shoes, purses and belts that bare your teeth marks...and that's ok too. I'm going to miss you. Terribly. The house is so quite, so deafeningly quite without you here and I don't like it. Always remember we love you. I love you...and be good until we meet again. xoxo, Mom 2y

  •   dammit_leon @xxfallon_fatalxx thank you -- it's the reality of life though. We knew he had several issues when we adopted him and hoped for the best. Brilliant 6 years were shared. Better to have lost love then never loved at all, right. 1y
  •   meldotcom @dammit_leon I just loss my beloved cat Casper at 11 years old to kidney disease.we adopted him 4 years ago with serious health issues and nursed him back to health but ultimately he too was unable to recover and it was the most difficult decision of my life this morning when the vet told me that it was time. this is a very hard day for me, and I remembered your page and came straight here to feel less alone. thank you. 1y
  •   dammit_leon @meldotcom I am so very sorry for such a late response, and my belated condolences, sweet girl. I hope you are doing well. and always remember you are never alone. 11mon

dammit_leon We don't understand how or why you come to the same place all day everyday to do your 'business' as you call it. Where's your sense of adventure? You can come outside with us sometime if you want...wait...don't shut the door. #squaready 2y
  •   kari_s @dammit_leon hey this probably isn't the best way to contact you but I feel like I'm seeing some hip displaysia in Chloe. She's 4 1/2 so I don't know if that's common. I kind of freaking out!! 2y
  •   dammit_leon @kari_s Unfortunately, it seems hip displaysia is somewhat common. A quick X-ray at the vets office can confirm. I can tell you from our experience that the hip displaysia was never more than a nuisance because it causes him achy hips. Get Chloe checked with her vet -- honestly the best way we have found to manage is by keeping Leonard's weight in check to not stress his hips. Keep me posted and im happy to answer any questions. , don't freak out -- it's just part of being a good bully owner 2y
  •   agarvin78 That's just like my dogs but it's when I'm showering. They always seem so interested in the shower until its time for them to get a bath. That's when they run away! 2y
  •   fortlaudertales It's been 3 days. I need my Leonard fix!!! 2y
  •   kari_s Oh thank you so much!! You've made me feel a lot better. She rested and seemed back to herself yesterday but we're going to keep and eye on it and get an X-ray done. Thank goodness for IG/Internet for bringing perfect strangers that love their bulldogs together! 2y

  •   dammit_leon @gr8pmkn Leonard's doing ok - still seizure free since that crazy cluster episode but still having incontinence issues (pee and poop) so his medication was adjusted again after they checked his blood levels. He had a frequency of accidents in the house this week even though I am home and taking him out/letting him out/out out out. Otherwise, he has gained a pound which is good, he's back up to 53 where he was 51 a few weeks ago. It's a far cry from 80 pounds which is Leonard's "feel good fighting" weight, but I will take it as a 2 lb victory nonetheless. Thanks for asking. :) if I ever miss your comment or am 2y
  •   dammit_leon @gr8pmkn none responsive in comments pls feel free to email as I am always happy to provide health updates. Just don't want you to think I'm ignoring questions -- unfortunately I miss some. 2y

  •   keithtaylorphotography Thanks for making my day better Leonard! You rock. 2y
  •   dammit_leon @52east most things in the hall are 'Leonard height' for our toddler ;) We are teaching him some geography - or at least showing him where his other family members live in the US and overseas. Leonard seems to enjoy these lessons too ;) 2y
  •   52east @dammit_leon how great to be familiar with a real map from such a young age...all the better when it's a map of where love is... 2y
  •   52east @dammit_leon thanks for your message. I was very glad to join in @indiaust great idea for your wonderful Leonard. 2y
  •   robustsgirl @dammit_leon how is the bed battle going? Hope Leonard is still doing well 2y
  •   dammit_leon @robustsgirl the bed battle is still ongoing but Gertie has definitely put Leonard in 'stand down' mode so at this point he only sneaks it when she's with my Mom downstairs. Hilarious! 2y

dammit_leon Gertie most certainly won the Clam Shell Bed Battle. Her victory...is victorious and she reminds us that haters gonna hate. Haters gonna hate. But at least Leonard is trying to be a good sport by taking comfort in his baby blanket and new bed location. I mean, we all know location is important. Is this a Win-Win situation? No way. Gertie crushed Leonard's clam shell bed dreams. Gertie: 1 Leonard: Pout. 2y

dammit_leon Leonard, realizing defeat is imminent, takes a moment to collect himself for the final round of the clam shell bed battle. It's been a very tense 36 hours and at this time, Gertie is definitely ahead in points as they enter the final round. 2y

dammit_leon The clam shell bed standoff is now moving into hour 14. Gertie has been holding her stance to not give into Leonard's huffaling and puffaling and Leonard continues to complain. I don't know folks, it's getting pretty intense in here. 2y

dammit_leon Leonard fails to notice Gertie is actually IN the clam shell bed, and within a matter of seconds, judging from Gertie's posture and ear position...she's gonna get 'medieval on his ass'. Oh Leonard. #squaready 2y

  •   vincentv13 Medieval on his ass? You've got to b a Pulp Fiction fan. Hopefully Leonard never has to go through what Marcellus did.... :-) 2y
  •   dammit_leon @vincentv13 I do like the movie, and the line is definitely memorable and has made me giggle thru the years. 2y
  •   dammit_leon @mrspooh LOL, I can't claim it, it's from the movie Pulp Fiction 2y
  •   vincentv13 Vincent V short for Vincent Vega. Before Vincent we had Marcellus Wallace, our Boston Terrier rescue. He was the best dog. Everyone who met him said his name was well suited to him. In between there was Maggie the Bull Terrier. Also a rescue. We wanted to name her Mrs. Mia Wallace but our young children wouldn't have it. LOVE Pulp Fiction. Not many remember it. Glad to hear u r a fan! 2y
