Dogs and real estate blogs seem to go together. We’ve got Toby & Sadie — not to be confused with Jonathan & Tobey. And of course there’s Greg & Odysseus. I’m sure there are other human/canine combinations out there as well.
Pictured to your left is the latest addition to the Thompson menagerie. He’s 100% purebred mutt. He’s a “rescue dog” — the politically correct term meaning he was on doggie death row. Appears to be about five months old and his former owners apparently abused him (may they rot in hell).
Looks like he may be a bit of Golden Retriever and who knows what else.
He joins Trudy, the German/Australian Shepard mix (and truly one of the smartest dogs on the planet), the cats Buzz and Fluffy (as named by then 7 and 9 year olds), two bearded dragon lizards (Spike and Louie) and a ball python named Osiris. (links are to who they were named after, not to pics of the beasts themselves. As for Spike and Fluffy — that’s self-explanatory.)
This is one cute dog. The problem is the pound people named him “Baby”. Now I’ll concede that our pets may not have the most creative names ever bestowed on an animal, but I’ll be dammed if I’m going to go around with a male dog named “Baby”.
The children, being the teenagers they are, already disagree on a name. They have agreed however, to open up the naming to the known blogiverse, or at least the minuscule fraction of it that reads this blog.
So how about it, oh avid readers. Name that dog!
UPDATE: We went with “Riley”. Thanks for all the great suggestions!!
