When the Bears announced their 2019 schedule, we decided to have some puppies reveal the opponents. Now, we have taken it a step further. We have a puppy that will make weekly picks for the Bears games.
Walter has been through a lot during his young life— NBC Sports Chicago (@NBCSChicago) August 29, 2019
We introduce you to the pup who will be predicting Bears games all season in our first edition of Puppy Pick 'Em! (@onetailatatime) pic.twitter.com/S3AVfKMALx
Walter’s picks have been back and forth and for Week 3 how he couldn't resist the
Maryland crab cakes that represented Washington. Though dogs do love cheese too!
This week we have a liquid instead of a solid. Milk is the state drink of Minnesota and though Illinois does not have a state drink, the MOST ORDERED drink is an Old Fashioned! Crazy, right? It is Week 4 and Walter is hoping to improve his 1-2 record.
The 9-week old dachshund was hand-selected by the scouts at NBC Sports Chicago and hails from One Tail at a Time rescue. He came from a shelter in Alabama and was transported to Chicago. At just 7 weeks old and without his mom, he beat a deadly virus and spent some time in the doggie ER, where he healed and became strong again.
Now, Walter is ready to rumble between the well-manicured lines of Sweetness Field. He will be adoptable soon via onetail.org and has two adorable sisters named Martha and Millie.
Walter will pick the games throughout the NFL season, including the playoffs and we hope that his nose follows the scent to the Bears every week, all the way to that magical game in Miami in February. Narrated by Jason Benetti, play by play announcer for the White Sox.
It is time for Puppy Pick ‘Em presented by Nissan.
