Our chocolate lab is a rescue so she came to us as "Greta". Funny I could not imagine her with any other name. FYI she's currently snoring!

Ever wonder why FDR called his little Scottie "Fala"?    and LBJ's beagles were named "Him" and "Her"?   There just have to be anecdotes about that . .  

A former neighbor of mine named one of her cats "T. D. 'Cat;"    I asked why.  She said it was short for "That Damn Cat".   But she was fond of that feline!

You make some good points, Bonnie!  :)  Do you by any chance know the stories behind these names?

Your comments about T.D. Cat resounded! A bit off the subject, but our obedience trainer related that he was having a good deal of trouble with a huge German Shepherd puppy he was training. The dog would NOT come when called. In frustration, the trainer called the dog by name and stuck a dammit on the end. No more problems!

Guess that comment from trainers that you hear is dead-on. It is the tone of the voice ----

I just recently adopted a Minnie Dachshund from my local shelter. He is so sweet and cute but such a little shit he gets into so much mischief. I really struggled to find a name that fit him. until I stumbled onto Mikey by remembering the commercial from my childhood, cause you know Mikey Did IT! LOL!!!
