The world of puppy raising is so small. I ran into the 99 cent store on Friday and ran into GDA puppy Jenga, she is a beautiful black lab who was out with her owner (I'm soooo bad, I forgot the humans name but remembered the dogs!) But we had a nice chat and I got puppy kisses so it was a good day.
I got to thinking about names, and I know for all raisers it is a pretty important issue, I've been at puppy presentations and pulled the 'eeehheww, what was that name?' face or for GDB people a common saying "what was Mick thinking?" (Mick used to be the GDB puppy stork, in charge of assigning names and arranging delivery and recall of dogs.)
Names get shortened, reworked, but we still love them no matter what. Since I don't have the luxury of naming my pups, I have taken the liberty of giving them middle names. Don't worry all my dogs have known, responded to, and been trained using their given names, but we all have pet names for them.
Tacoma became: Taco Bell, Tacoma Bell or just Taco
Waffle became: The Waffler, Waffle Lee, WaffleLani and Fuzzy Butt (you should see her after a bath)
Lani: Lani-lu, Lani-Bonnie, Laniwaffle and when she won't listen poopy head (but say it with love)
What middle names and or nick names do your PIT's have, leave them in comments and I will post them at a later date.
I leave you dear friends without a PIT to post pictures of, but don't fear Eggo, Waffle's sister sent this picture to me. what do you think? perhaps a bit too mellow for guide work?
