No, We Weren't Consulted on the Name

When the story appeared on last night's news broadcast, the resident basenji princess perked up when she heard her name said several times in less than a minute. The White House dog, for the record, spells his name Bo and is male. The first lady of the house is fairly unimpressed so far, but she wants it to go on the record that she had her name for six years before this canine came on the scene.

A coworker has a male dog with yet another variant of the name: Beau.

Rocketing up the list of most popular dog names soon?

Yours is actually the first picture I've seen of the First Dog. He's cute -- for some reason I've only seen pics in the past of Portuguese Water Dogs with that freakish-poodle-like clip.

Of course, Bow is much more elegant and regal looking; I like short hair best.

I keep meaning to ask -- I assume you realize that the "name" of your blog is just a hyphen. Why is that?

Joe - It is a cute dog, but I think it's got that cut because it's a puppy.

Ah, yes, regarding my blog being listed as "-". When I formatted with the fancy dancy hand-created masthead and in formatting listed the name of my blog, it comes up embedded in the arty masthead in ugly Courier type, so the only option was to come up with just a dot or hyphen that is not so obvious bleeding through if that makes sense. I'm sure there is a way to cure all of that if I want to spend an entire Saturday reading through Blogger instructions.

Mouse - It is a cute dog, but I hear that the jury is out on whether or not they are truly hypoallergenic.

I thought Bow's named was prounounced like WOW.

WAT - She is a big WOW, but her name is like a bow in your hair.
