Need I Say More.......

With the winter months upon us here in Atlanta, Lawn Maintenance slows down and major Landscaping projects commence, which in turns, gives me time to reflect back at how last year went business wise and what we can do to progress upward in the future.

But along with those thoughts, I still have time to enjoy the pleasure moments....And here he is!

 Leonidas Adrenalius aka "Leo"

The Master of our Domain, The Head of the Household, The Ying of our Yang!  Yes, I went out, found the newest member of our family and bought a Boxer.  What the heck was I thinking!  I guess nothing, since it is the winter time and my industry is in relax mode.  But, nonetheless, he's here to stay.

Let me explain how this happened: 

My wife called me up one morning while I was out looking at properties that we service.  But, really I was at Starbuck's picking up a Low Fat Grande Latte w/ two Equals and eating one of those huge blueberry muffins.  Insight - My wife is a personal trainer and makes it a point that this family eats well and avoids getting out of hand with the junk food and I would have been shot dead chowing down on that "Awesome" delight.  So I had to hide it, go figure.  "She's a cheater, too, don't let her fool you!"

Anyways back to the story.  I was out and about and I get this call from her saying "Hey, do you ever wonder if Princess gets lonely since Hogan is gone", We lost one of our labs to cancer last year (R.I.P Hogan, you were the King of the tennis ball.  We Love you always!).  And I knew at that moment, she wanted another dog.

We were contemplating the thought of a new member before then, but life was moving fast with 3 kids and all and we put it on the back burner.  But, being in Landscaping, there's downtime and downtime means, "Clete, we have the time during the winter to buy, deal with night sweats of no sleep, block off every room he's in, watch ever move he makes so that he doesn't pee or poop, go inside outside inside outside every 20 minutes and train a puppy before the Spring rush kicks back in".  So, I said "Honey, if you want Princess to have a buddy, I get to pick the breed".  She agreed.

She knew that I wanted a Boxer and also knew that he would be a great running partner for her on her every other day jogs.  So, I made a few calls, checked on the internet and finally, one day after her initial phone call, went and found this adorable little flat face box of sunshine that became Leonidas Adrenalius aka "Leo".

And that, my friends, is the story of Leo.  Thanks for reading, But I have to go clean up POOP!  Yee Haw!

P.S.  It's February, and in Atlanta, it's time to cut back the Crape Myrtles.  Be sure to tell your lawn care provider whether you want them cut back or just snipped BEFORE starting the job!  If you don't have one and you're here in Atlanta, by all means "Request A Quote" from us.  Mention "The Blog" to get a good discount!
