My Dog is A Nerd

If Leo was a human he wouldn't be as popular as he is in dog form. He'd be one of those guys that you know is cute under those thick glasses and acne riddled face. One of those guys that gets queasy when he sees deviants misbehaving and as much as he wants to be cool and fit it he must find an adult or authority figure to nark on said rebel rousers.

He would be one of those guys that is extremely sensitive and sits by himself daydreaming and writing poetry. He would get nervous and stutter when he had to speak to a pretty girl. One of those guys that you would love to hang out with but still have the urge to trip him when he walks by.

When I think of Leo I think of Christian Slater's character Mark Hunter in Pump Up the Volume. Quite nerd by day, rebel by night. Although I don't see Leo as a anarchist, foul mouthed DJ. Now I'm dating myself, yes I'm old and I used to have a humongous crush on Christian Slater. My poor Leo, I'm glad he's a dog and not a human child.

And Happy 3rd Gotcha Day my boy. October 17th, 2008 was one of the happiest days of my life.
