On Friday, October 8th, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., Book Court in Brooklyn will host a release party for Show Dogs: A Photographic Breed Guide by Kate Lacey, which features Leo’s by the Sea Furion as well as other AKC show dogs. The book is a collection of funny, sweet, and compelling dog portraits on candy-colored backgrounds. Each of the American Kennel Club Dog Breeds--Terriers, Hounds, Sporting, Working Dogs, and more--is represented by a unique individual dog with a personality all its own. Kate Lacey, a freelance photographer in New York, started photographing show dogs in 2005 when Life assigned her to cover the Westminster show. Instead of shooting documentary style, she decided to rig up backdrops and made classic portraits of dozens of dogs. Kate and Furion will be at the Book Court Store to sign and paw print your books personally.

May 2 - A early morning start at the Belmont Lake State Park for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Dog Walk a Thon. Furion was very excited to participate from the beginning to the end. He met all types of dogs and people that wanted to pet him and talk to him. This was a great fund raiser that was enjoyed by all. The Long Island Chapter gave tee shirts and dog treats with their motto "Walk to create a world free of MS". It was a beautiful day and a great walk around Belmont Lake. Furion wanted to jump in for a swim but we didn't have time.
May 2010 - Furion finally gets his new ride. A new Ford Transit Connect for Furion. Furion, Zanzibar and Apollo will be riding in style. This new truck has more room and a new plush bed and easy on and off access. Don't look now...here comes the puppy mobile.....
On May 1st Cesar Milan signed his book for Furion and Zanzibar at the North Shore Animal League Adoption Day Event. Cesar was very excited that Leonbergers will be recognized by the AKC in July 2010. He said he was looking forward to seeing Furion and Zanzibar in dog shows in the furure.
On May 1st Furion and Zanzibar spent fun time with Cesar Milan, "The Dog Whisper". The North Shore Animal League had their annual Adoption Day for the sheltered animals and Cesar Milan flew in from California to make a personal appearance. Furion and Zanzibar wanted to share some Leo love so, Zanzibar stole and kiss and Furion went in for the hug. They had a great time playing with the Dog Whisper and showing their support of the adoption of the large dogs as well as the small dogs. A fun time was had by all.
