It's like the Ashes with hot dogs...

The Angels Stadium - one of my favourite pictures from holiday

The Red Sox did it.  Or rather, David Ortiz did.  A convincing 4-2 win over St Louis and I confess that I watched pretty much all of it.  Great stuff.

We're talking baseball, in case you're wondering.  I don't fully understand how it works but having seen a game in the summer, I was immediately hooked.  A friend took us to see the LA Angels.  We chose Mike Trout as our favourite player before we saw him play because how can you not root for a guy with a name like that?  Turns out he's their star player but we didn't know that - honest.   "We" beat the Toronto Blue Jays.  A brilliant evening that the whole family enjoyed.  Normally that would be the end of it but on returning home I found that, due to a BT broadband line, I was able to watch baseball here too.  Hence being able to watch the World Series.  Had we made the trip to watch the Dodgers instead we'd have had a longer season as they were contenders at one point.  But you know how it is, support your local team.      

I see that there is a South West League over here.  It comprises four teams, Bristol, Plymouth, Exeter and (oddly) Torbay.  If I was ten (or twenty) years younger...  As it is maybe I'll take a camera along sometime.

So, it is best to check the list of dog breeds or consult your vet in order to identify what the most favorable times for mating are. In some cases, you’ll also have to go through some trial and error just to learn what works for your female dog. By following all of these advices, you will be able to have good and healthy puppies in a few months’ time.
