|Charger was our first family dog after my husband and I got married and had our daughter. We're from San Diego, my husband is a Chargers fan, and back then, the team was doing really well. Plus, Charger was really fast and loved to play fetch, so she became our own version of a "Charger."
Penny is named after the little orphan in that old Disney movie, The Rescuers. Even still, if I hear the "Be Brave, Little One" song that plays when Penny is at the orphanage, patiently waiting for a home, I cry. My own Penny was passed up by 3 different parties at the shelter before I adopted her.
Olive got her name because it was the only name my husband and I could agree upon. Originally, I wanted to name her Astraea, which is Latin for "justice," but it reminded my husband of an ex-girlfriend of the same name, haha.
Charlie is so named because it just fit. I kept looking at him on the 2-hour ride home, testing out everything from cute to pretentious names. In the end, my best little boy turned out to be good ol' Charlie.
