If you have pet-related links, stories or questions to share, this is the place. I’ll start.
The Beagle mama we are getting from TN reportedly still has a pudgy belly. This made me think of calling her Weeble. I loved Weebles when I was a kid. So last night, I brought up the subject of names with Billy:
Me: What about ‘Weeble’?
Billy: Sure. What about ‘Lars’?
This is Billy’s way of saying that he thinks Weeble is a stupid name. I don’t know how this will come across today, via typing, but last night it had me in stitches. I laughed til I had tears. Anyway, we ended up agreeing on a name: Surrey, after the county in England. Not for any special reason, but Billy had asked about where the breed was developed and that lead to this. Probably he was just trying to get my mind as far away from Weebles as possible.
