R.I .P. Leo… one of the Vicktory dogs, a precious therapy dog… how sad and sudden… Cici and I drove to and from Sacramento this weekend whew… got home Sunday to this news about Leo…
“Leo passed away this week from a seizure, but his story lives on. Once a fighting dog for Michael Vick, Leo was rescued and got a NEW OWNER. Under the guidance of his NEW owner, Leo became a “therapy dog” for cancer patients. Thanks Leo for the example you are for your breed. We will remember you with great fondness.”
Hector the Pit Bull
Rest in peace, my cool cousin Leo. The world is a better place because you were in it.
He passed away this week from a seizure disorder. Here is a video from 2008 highlighting his therapy work. Big Hector smooches to Marthina from Our Pack, Inc..
Such very sad news, today, as we all say goodbye to precious Leo. Our hearts should not be so heavy, because Marthina did show him a world filled with love, friendship and a firm place in life. Still so very hard to say goodbye to someone who has touched your life. RIP little man and thank you. ♥
Please, V Dog friends, take a small moment and share some love with Our Pack, Inc. and Marthina.
It is with great sadness I must announce the loss of a wonderful soul. This week Leo passed away from a severe seizure disorder. Leo was my working partner, friend and family loved one and I will never forget how wonderful he was. He was so many things to many people and to many dogs. Leo came to Our Pack from the Vick case and I was lucky enough to later adopt him. Even though he didn’t have a good start in life he made life for others around him better. Just after arriving to us, Leo quickly turned inhumanity into humanity. He gave love that wasn’t even given to him. He worked with cancer patients as a therapy dog. He showed kids that no matter what you can still show love and compassion toward others regardless of how life has treated you. He showed the world that one should not be judged based on what property he lives on but on who you are and what you do as an individual. Many dogs are alive today and many people have smiled because of Leo and his work. He gave a second chance to other dogs that may never have gotten one because of who he was and what he did. Please join me in remembering the good that Leo has done and pass it on. We’ve suffered a great loss but we’ve also received a wonderful gift in the time we were lucky enough to share with him. Leo accomplished so much in so little time. Thank you Leo, I love you so much and you will never be forgotten….Ever. For Leo, 2005 – 2011
