So I was thinking the other night about how our pups got their names. Right now the girls have first and middle names while our little one only has a first name (though it is a two part name).
Baily Sue- Baily did not have a name when we got her from rescue. I originally wanted Bella but the DH didn't like it. For some reason the name Baily popped into my head and the DH decided on the spelling. Notice that there is no E :) we are very particular about that! Later that week we went to pick up our new sofa and I realized why that name was in my mind, we bought the sofa at Bailey's Furniture (yes we know the spelling difference)! I had started calling her Baily Roo because she bounced around like a kangaroo but our friends who watched her while we went out of town started calling her Baily Sue and it stuck.
Mesa Grace- Mesa came with her name from animal control. We thought about changing it but we loved the uniqueness and it seemed to suit her. After Mesa settled in we realized she was such a bulldozer and had no idea she wasn't a tiny dog. We started commenting on how "graceful" she was and she got her middle name.
Big Carl- So a couple weeks back we were watching TV and saw the add for the new "Big Carl Burger." The DH and I laughed and said it would be a great name for a small dog if we ever adopted one. 6 days later we met our little guy at the adoption event. He came with the name Cat (which we found out was short for Cat Von Dweezle) and have since learned that his name was Weasel at animal control. Eventually I am sure he will get a middle name :)
