I Have a Grand-dog!
My son, Jon and his partner, Sarah have adopted a dog in New Mexico. My grand-dog does not have a name yet. Jon and Sarah say he must earn his name. I suggested Dubh after discovering it meant black in Gaelic. Sarah is of Irish descent so I thought that would be fun. Or it could be Kurochan. Kuro is black in Japanese. The "chan" ending is usually given to a child.
I forgot my grand-dog was a boy dog in my excitement and suggested Mollie to represent where Jon and Sarah met. They met in West Africa's Mali.
I have the hardest time naming things. We managed to name Jon after the seagull (Jonathan Livinston Seagull) and Tiffany after the lamp. Art and his family ended up naming their three dogs Finnegan #1, Finnegan #2 and Finnegan #3. Hmmmm... I guess I'd better leave the naming to Jon and Sarah.
