Sasha the great!

This is my awesome dog, Sasha.

Sasha is such a beautiful name, yet we have this weird thing in our family that makes us want to call Sasha everything but Sasha. Don’t ask me how it started, or even to explain some of our crazy nicknames for her because I wouldn’t know where to begin.

So, meet Sasha. Her aliases include: Sasha-Bean, Bean, Schroeder, Shrewd, Shrewd-a-Bunk (again, please don’t ask — clearly we are a little crazy) Biz, and the list could really go on! Anyway, isn’t she lovely

Sasha has been a member of our family since before we had Evan and Kara, and it’s been so fun watching both of the kids have the opportunity to meet and play with her as they grow up. Sasha is a constant source of entertainment for my 3-year-old, which is great since they both have the same high level of energy!

So, what makes my dog so great? Well, aside from being a gorgeous animal (who happens to possess a lot of funny nicknames), she is also just a great friend and protector to our family. She keeps a close watch on our home, and that is invaluable to me.

She is also just so much fun to play with! I love that the kids will have such a great dog to run, jump and play with as they grow and mature. She is truly an amazing pup.
