A Rose by any other Name...

This is my 'Hollywood glance" photo.
So Mum, being Mum, has been thinking about our names. When she adopted me, lo' those eight years ago, I already was named Dozer by my previous family. I was named Dozer because I slept all the way home from the breeder's home. Not a name Mum might have picked out for me but she decided to keep it since I was a bit pre-occupied with bulldozing down everything in the house.

This is Cooper with his dragon
stuffie he got for Christmas.
He loves licking it
and cuddling it.
 I think Coop has gender issues.
Now when Cooper was adopted his name was Copper because of the color of his hair. He did not even make it out of the door at Greenhill Animal Shelter with that name. Mum and Dad had already decided on "Cooper" because it sounded so great rolling off their tongues and Mum loves Gary Cooper the actor.
Each year Mum likes to see what the most popular dog names are - not that she would change ours - I mean Cooper is 15 years old now - what else would he answer to? (Fatso comes to mind).
This year the most popular (according to Yahoo)
No.1 - Female: Bella, Male: Max

No. 2 - Female: Daisy, Male: Buddy
No. 3 - Female: Lucy, Male: Charlie
No. 4 - Female: Molly, Male: Rocky
No. 5 - Female: Lola, Male: Cooper
Lola: This cute name made the biggest chart hop of all the monikers on the top 10 list, moving up three spots from last year.
Cooper: A decade ago, Cooper was far from being considered a trendy dog name. But as celebrities like Anderson Cooper and Bradley Cooper gained popularity, so did the name Cooper for pets.

 I cannot believe my name did not make the list. I will be emailing Yahoo post haste!

I will preparing my New Year's resolutions later this week and shall get them on the blog so that we can discuss them in detail. Cooper says he has none, so I shall draw up some for him because he has some serious need for self-reflection.

Love, Dozer
