~Meet Wanda~

The Newest Member of our Family

I just wanted to share our newest member of our family with you . Her name is Wanda. She is a 7 week old boxer! We just picked her up from a family who lives in Fernley, a town just outside of Sparks, NV  where we live.

Wanda is the result of an ongoing three year old bet my husband had with our eleven year old son, Alec. The bet was that when Alec hit his first home run, he could get a puppy of his choosing. And, yep, you guessed it, he hit his first home run this year.

Alec plays on the major Astro team in the Spanish Springs Cal Ripken Baseball League. The fence in our league is 230 feet. For those of you with children in little league, you probably know this is a big deal. I only know this because my son is constantly telling me it is.

The other dog in the picture is my 13 year old baby German Shorthair Pointer, Tiller.He is our first dog and was part of the family before Alec and his twin sister, Kenna came along. Alec and Kenna both wanted  to experience raising a puppy (little did they realize what was involved in the puppy training process) and somehow the homerun bet came to be.

Unfortunately, Tiller somehow became a lap dog and was unable to hunt! He wanted to ride on the quad instead of being a good pointer. Oops!

So here are a few  pictures of Tiller and Wanda. Enjoy and have a great week.
