Fritz Fisher

We have a new addition to the Fisher family already. I have been obsessed with the thought of having a puppy for a very long time, and I somehow convinced Jesse into getting one. We did a lot of looking around and finally found the perfect lil guy on a website called CAWS (community animal welfare society). We met him and instantly fell in love, he really is the cutest puppy I've ever seen. Fritz is part chihuahua and part ? You would not really guess chihuahua when you see him, but I think it means he'll stay small and I'm happy about that. Fritz is ridiculously scared of everything at first, but we force him to do a lot. We have him meet lots of people and dogs, and we took him swimming at Bear Lake (he's a natural) this last weekend. We held him right above the water and before he even touches it he starts swimming, it was so funny Fritz had all of us laughing for a while. He is like a baby because he likes to be craddled and he is an Attention Hor! Jesse is head over heels for Fritz, he loves him and is sad because Fritz loves me more and follows me everywhere. As with most puppies he has some incidents, but so far he's been a great puppy and we think will turn out to be a great dog.

For Jackie's twenty-first birthday she wanted to have a fiesta, so a fiesta she had. My mom got her two pinata's - a 2 and a 1 (21) this was awesome, only problem was she never used them. Being the genius that she is, Jackie gave them to me for my twenty-first birthday three years later. I also did not use them...until the other day. My twin nephews Carter and Kenji were punching them so I thought "Why not!?" I took it outside and hung it from our swing set and told Halle and the boys to get a bat. They showed up with a woody-buzz bat and two ping pong paddles! I found that immensely funny. They tried to go at it, but luckily I stopped them before they destroyed it and forced them to play by pinata rules. We blindfolded them and spun them around and they started swinging their lil hearts out, it was loads o' fun. I took my turn as well...of course! I had to spin lots more because of my obvious advantage and wasn't allowed as many whacks. Despite my obstacles I came out the victor! The best part of the whole thing was how nasty and old the candy was. Yet this did not keep them from eating as much of it as they could. It was a lot of fun and I was smart enough to save the other half of the pair of pinata's so we can play another day.
