6 | April 12, 2018 | The winnetka Current news Willow Willson The Sanderson family of Winnetka Willow Willson is the Sanderson family’s 5-year-old hound mix — Willow, for the family’s favorite tree, and Willson, for Willson Contreras, the Cubs’ catcher. Almost every morning, she meets her many furry friends at the woods to play. She is the sweetest dog ever. The family got her from an animal shelter in Indiana two-and-a-half years ago. She is really fast and likes to sprint around the yard. She curls up into a small ball next to the heater to stay warm. Whenever the family comes to pet her, she wags her tail. She loves being scratched behind her long, soft ears and also loves to go for rides in the car. The Winnetka Current is always in need of pets for Pet of the Week.
