What’s In A Name?

I sometimes wonder what people are thinking when they name their dogs.  I happen to think that naming your dog, like naming your child, should take some thought. Perhaps the name should either match the dog’s personality, or at least the color.

I think Coco, is a great name, but shouldn’t the dog at be the color of cocoa, or at least brown? One of our senior rescues is a small “cream” colored Pekinese, and the other is a Chinese crested black and white in color.

Well, I guess, it doesn’t matter to either of the Coco’s, as they both seem to know and respond to their names, but sometimes I just think too much.

What is in a name anyway? Who am I to judge? I just named 4 of our 5 week old puppies after the “Ninja Turtles!”  What was I thinking??? And I am not even going to tell you what I named the other 3 puppies.  You will have to keep watch see for yourself.

Here Coco—come and get it!!!!IMG_3391 (1024x682)IMG_3358 (1024x682)

Could It Be—Jealousy?

Poor Blue, our very handsome boy seems to be the object of bullying, here at 12 Hills Dog Rescue. I never really thought about dogs being bullies before, but I think that is what is happening.
You see, Blue is a very handsome dog—part pit—with a shiny dark brown coat and huge ears. Besides his handsome appearance, he has a puppy attitude and a loving personality.

Most of the dogs really like him, but then there are a few of the males, that seem to think he is their whipping boy. He doesn’t deserve to be treated that way, when all he wants is to run and play and make friends with all the other doggies here.

As I was cleaning the kennels on Sunday (that’s where I think deep thoughts), it occurred to me, that it must be his muscular body,shiny coat and pleasing personality, that gets him in trouble. Or maybe it is his big beautiful ears. I guess, that bullying occurs everywhere–even at dog rescues.

We are hoping that he finds a loving family soon. H

We love your ears, Blue!

We love your ears, Blue!

He deserves it
