Knowing the family my parents got Wilma from, I'd venture to say that they're decidedly NOT knowledgeable about Hackamore Brick.

i also like singing songs to my pets that have their names in them (or that i can change to have their names in them) and i thought maybe other people do and might like to hear some new ones!

i call all the animals pookie on occasion so my latest song is "my my my pookie face, my my pookie face".

i wouldn't have assumed lucy in the sky with diamonds for lucy except that their other dog is named ringo! it seems like there's a theme there. i'd be curious to know if i'm right.
I sing Cracklin' Rosie to my Rosie....Oh, I love my old Rosie dog! LOL Before I adopted Beatrice, I decided I needed another girl so I could name her Caroline and sing Sweet Caroline. I loved the name Beatrice so I made Caroline her middle name. LOL

I love old lady names for beagles.

I have a dog that came from the Humane Society with the name "McKenzie" she knew her name and didnt seem to have a negative history with it....so we kept it. I have grown to love the name and the way the McK sound catches in the throat....very distinctive. She comes when called better than any dog I have ever known. (We had a westie named "Cricket"....again that c-k sound....I really like it.)

We recently adopted a little beagle girl named "Allie"; we thought about changing it....but again....the foster mother who had been so good to her had named her...so it was a totally positive association for her....we didnt love the name.....but Love her....and have grown to like the name.

I hear that it isnt hard to teach a dog a new name.....but unless the old name had baggage with it....I accept them as t hey come. I did have one dog whose original family had been abusive to her so had no trouble giving her a fresh start as "Hannah". That is a name I would never re-use....the amount of love attatched to that name....would make it impossible.....besides I still talk to Hannah....and my eyes well up each and every time I say it. "Love is Forever"....."It is a fearsome thing to love that which death can touch!"
