I have always prided myself on being a rather original thinker. But recently I got a press release from the AKC about the current most popular names for dogs, and what do I find in the top twenty? Both Rose and Lily/Lilly.
The next day, a man driving past pulled over and got out of his car to meet Rose, and told me that one of his pugs had recently passed away. Her name? Cocoa Pig.
I felt bad enough about that. And now today on Pug-a-day? King Snorkie von Squigglesworth.
I have to conclude that at least, I did not put an adequate amount of effort into this important subject.
