The Racing Sausages

We love going to Brewers Baseball games. And I, particularly, love 3 things about going games:

3) Miller Lite
2) Hot Dogs
1) The Racing Sausages

Every game, at the bottom of the 6th Inning, The Sausages come out and race around the track while you predict which sausage will win. 

Let me introduce you to the famous Sausages:


From Left to Right, we've got Bratwurst, Polish Sausage, Chorizo, Italian Sausage, and Hot Dog.

The races are actually meant to be a promotion for the Klement's Sausage Company, which is located in Milwaukee, and whose sausages are served at the stadium. And I must admit, it is the most entertaining 30 second promotional piece of advertisement I have ever seen. Clever, clever thinking Klement's. 

Before you watch, don't forget to take a guess as to which sausage won the race last night...

Our Newest Addition


Meet Kenzie White. 

Today has been our 2nd full day with her. And let's just say...she is THE best puppy you will ever meet. Like, really....the best puppy. Let me explain why:
Number of "accidents" in the house = 0. 
Whining and barking = nada.
Waking us up in the middle of the night to go outside = nope.
Stubborn and high maintenance = yeah.right.

We could not have lucked out more with such a sweet, lovable, smart, easy going pup. She has without a doubt won us over. 
And I guess you could say she was sort of an "impulse" decision as well. We really had no intentions of getting a dog this soon, but had definitely been "browsing" the idea. We would occasionally check the Humane Society website and told ourselves that if a Poodle mix ever came up for adoption, we would consider it. (A poodle mix specifically per Andrew's request because they don't shed. And the only reason he would agree to bring a dog home). We also figured that it would be rare for a poodle mix PUPPY to be available since word is they get snatched up fast.
So Saturday when my parents were here, we had some down time, decided to randomly just peek at the site...and whatd'ya know. There she is. Our sweet 10 month old Poodle/Bichon Frise mix just staring at us on the screen. I told Andrew to grab the keys, told my mom there was a change of plans and we were going for a ride. We got to the Humane Society 30 minutes before they closed, and left 30 minutes after they closed with an extra little passenger in the car. 
Kenzie is seriously is a dream dog, and the best outcome for an impulse decision :)
