Where's my- Tiara?

Seems like Mom is always changing the names of her rescues and fosters. Some of them came from such bad situations that she didn't want any trace of the negativity left on them, so new names came along too.

When she got me my first owners had named me......Chugger. I guess I do like my water, but Mom didn't think it befit a lovely lady like myself. Therefore, I became "Gretta", which means "pearl."

Mom got Rondo from a breeder, but they named all their pups. His name was "Spur" before she changed it.

So what was your first name? Did your Moms and Dads change it or keep it?

When I lived at the animal shelter, my name was Heather. That is Mom's name too.

When she adopted me, she intended to let me keep the name they had given me at the shelter, but Grandmaw and Grandpaw insisted they could not have a daughter and a dog with the same name.

So from then on I have been known as Duchess.

Such a Happy- Girl

I was "Katie". Everyone thought it was not elegant enough. Plus, a friend of the family has that name and is an extreme dog hater, so it had to go.


Oh oh oh! Pick- me pick me!

I was "Rodger". Mom thought it did not roll off the tongue very well or seem to fit me at all.

I have no idea what my name was, but mum named me Süsse, and it fits me because I am a very sweet dog. She wanted to name me Santa's Little Helper, but that name was already taken...

Too smart for my- own good!

I was Bear.

Mom thought it was a sign from Grizzly Bear and Kodiak Bear...

The were known as the Bears...

But it didn't feel right to keep me Bear... as we already had our bears.

The shelter lady named me Serena because it means calm, and I was very calm at the shelter. Thank dog my pawrents changed my name because that "calm" stuff was all a big act to get myself adopted. laugh out loud
