Lennox

So here is the man!!! Lennox Lewis a gold medalist Olympian, and World Heavy Weight Champion. But don't be fooled! This man isn't just a pretty face! He also has a Honorary doctorate from the University of North London, and has used his money to open and fund the Lennox Lewis College as a three year pioneering education pilot to support disaffected youngsters at risk from slipping through the 'net'. But perhaps he is best known for this fight! "On June 8th of 2002 Lennox faced perhaps the most challenging fights of his career against Mike Tyson. The challenge consisting largely of the pre-fight hype from Tyson's bad boy reputation threats of eating Lewis's unborn children. Each fighter was to receive $20 million for the widely publicized bout. In a January press conference Tyson also bit Lewis on the leg. Lewis knocked Tyson out in the 8th round cementing his legacy as the greatest fighter of his time."


So what does all this have to do with my life? Well after a lot of talking and discussing, Niki and I have added to our family. We are pleased to announce that Lennox has joined our family!
He is a beautiful German Shepherd, Golden Lab cross. At five months old he still has a lot of growing to do, but he is very wonderful. He's quite (except when we leave him alone) and is SUPER friendly to everyone! In fact if you are in the market to steal a dog this would be the one. All you have to do is get him in the car with you, and you have a new best friend!.... but please don't! We like him too much for you to do that (Although if he keeps getting up so early!!!!) Niki and I have learnt so much in the day that we've had him. For example, our carefree days of taking off are gone, as well there is this little thing called responsibility that we (I mean I) have to learn. But he and I had a very nice hour long walk this morning. So yeah! I guess that's the big news for us today!
