Melinda Poole-O’Banion loves her dogs like children, so when one of them became pregnant, she did what any proud mama would do,..She took her female dog, Sig, to the sonographer’s office to capture some a keepsake 3-d images.

“They look like little dinosaurs!”, said Melinda…who happens to be a vet.  “I’ve seen animals imaged with regular 2-D ultrasounds, but I’m never seen anything like this.  It was amazing!  We could see their paws and they were head to head and back to back.”

The problem was the Mini Aussie pups were in a bit of a well…a dog pile.   So Melinda knows there are at least four pups…but their may be a fifth that was hiding.

Sig is pretty well trained so when her owners told her to lie on her back on the table, she did it.   And remained their for 30 minutes while a trained baby sonographer got every angle imaginable.   The pups are 45 days old.  Sig will deliver them in another  2 to 3 weeks.

Here are pictures of the proud and very patient mom and dad.  Sig and Barrett.

If you are interested in purchasing one of their beautiful Mini Aussie Pups,  call Melinda at (913) 961-8835 and see if she will part with them.

Royal Baby!

Game 7 of the World Series in Kansas City became even more exciting when I met the couple in front of me.

Brad an Krista Sandt hoisted signs that announced their baby’s due date is opening day 2015.  The home opener is April 6 for all of us who wait with anticipation.


The happy couple asked people to vote for names for their tiny babe.  Hos or Salvy?  (In honor of the Royals star first baseman and catcher.)  “At first, we got a lot of texts an votes for Hos! However, as the game went on, people started liking Salvy Sandt.”

I suggested a write -in vote for Alex Gordon, because it would work for a boy or girl.   The day after Game 7, the Sandts found out they were having a boy so now I believe Salvy Sandt has a nice ring to it!

The Sandts both grew up in the Kansas City metro.  They are life-long Royals fans and season ticket holders.   When asked if they would be at opening day 2015 if the Royal Baby has “gone into extra innings”…Krista says, “Ha.  Ha.  Why not?”

That will give all of us something more to look forward to this Spring!   Congratulations Brad and Krista!
