In Memory of Leo
Former CFO (Chief Fun Officer)
Leo was a german shepard and hound mix and extremely friendly; he was loved by many. Leo was excellent at his job. He made sure everyone knew when it was time to stop working. If you tried to work past 5pm, you would get a nose under your elbow which meant it was time to stop typing at the keyboard. Afternoon play was a requirement and tug and catch were the preferred form of entertainment. If you really wanted to impress Leo and get on his good side, his absolute favorite treat was a molasses cookie.
