A Personalized Gift for your Pet + Homemade Dog Treats

I have a 3-year-old Basset Hound named Walter. He has been featured in a couple of social media posts, just hamming it up for the camera. Around our house we call him Walt. Even our 10-month-old daughter yells out, “Wauullltt!” when he trots into a room. There are times when Walt drives me nuts (like really nuts!), but then he flashes those big sad Basset Hound eyes at me and I just fall in love with him all over again.

Others have enough love for multiple teams! All have plenty of love for their children’s or grandchildren’s school and summer-league teams. Yes, baseball is still America’s great pastime!   The game has been played in the U.S. since at least the early 1800s if not earlier.  When the New York Knickerbockers baseball club formally organized in 1845, they wrote down
