Dog of the Day: Rolo the Leonberger
I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for nearly two years, and I’m still running into new breeds. (Heck, I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for nearly two years, period!) This is our first Leonberger, a truly outrageous breed.
Supposedly Leonbergers were bred to look like the lion on the official town seal of Leonberg, Germany. He does look a little bit leonine, doesn’t he?
We found Rolo outside of Real Foods on Polk Street, a great place for dog-watching.
The employees kept coming out to say hello to him. He liked that well enough, although I think he was hoping for treats.
Closeup of the last picture. So ridiculous.
I think mom and/or dad was coming out when I snapped this last one. Shadows are a bit awful, but it definitely shows his attitude toward life.
