A Rose By Any Other Name...

Would that apply to a dog, too? Does a dog still smell like a dog regardless of what you name it? Of course it does, but that doesn't mean I want to be heard shouting "Sir Snuffles McBeth Von Schnauzer Fluffypants the Third" every time I call the dog. I recently posted on Facebook for suggestions on what to name our soon to be addition to our family, but instead got a lot of reasons that I shouldn't own a new puppy right now. Granted, there were a couple names suggested among my friends and family, but thus far, the names my family likes I've found myself. Here's a list of what we've got so far.

There are other names we liked but those are the top ones thus far. Garen has a few other choices in mind like Thor and Odin... but I'm really not digging on those. We'll have to meet our new pup first, and then decide upon a name suiting of his/her personality, and of course of his/her being a German Shepherd. So it's not too late to throw out your .02 cents on this issue, if you've got an opinion on naming it, that is. On owning it, well that's a mute point now, it's already paid for.

I still vote for Trocar. Google it, but beware of yucky pictures.

@Dedra - That sounds incredibly painful but cool at the same time. I wonder how you came upon it?

For those who might be a bit more timid about Googling it... here's a safe for work link to Wikipedia describing what it is with nice safe pictures.

A trocar is an embalming tool. Aspiration is table talk at our house...good or bad? I'm not so sure.
