How we got our names...and Mom is outraged!

Hello all our furry and not-so-furry friends! Noah the Airedale asked if all our names starting with a "P" was by design or a coincidence. Well, many years ago, our mom & dad had a Miniature Schnauzer named Daisy. When Daisy was about 12 years old, they got another one that was a puppy in hopes of keeping Daisy active. The puppy was black and silver and the black was so dark that they named her Pepper. Right before Daisy went to the bridge, they started doing research on dog breeds. Mom went into an antique shop and a large curly black and tan dog followed her all around and kept putting her face in Mom's hand. She asked the owner of the shop what kind of dog that was. It was an Airedale so they concentrated their research on Airedales. Eventually, they found a breeder that had a one year old with some genetic problems that were keeping her from finding her fur-ever home. She was already named Pockets by the breeder. Her kennel name was Mega-bucks Deep Pockets because the breeder had spent a fortune to keep her alive with all her health problems. Mom and Dad fell, instantly, in love with Pockets and they knew that she would be a good fit with Pepper. Well, as time went on, Pepper started to bite Dad almost every time he came near her. He was very upset and wanted Mom to have Pepper "put down". Mom couldn't do that so she placed her with a new family through small animal rescue. The same day, they went to a breeder to get another Airedale. Mom took a dictionary with her to pick a name that started with a "P". When they met the new dog, she was so red that they chose the name Penny. Fast forward a few years to the day after Pockets went to the bridge. Dad called Pockets' breeder and she didn't have any Airedales ready at that time, but she contacted a breeder in South Carolina that had a one year old female that she was training to be a show dog. When the breeder heard Dad's story, she agreed to sell that dog if Mom and Dad wanted her. This time, they didn't take the dictionary because they were too distraught to even think about it. When they got there, they fell in love with the new dog, but couldn't come up with a name that started with a "P". Mom called Pockets' breeder and told her that she needed a name that starts with "P". The breeder named her Poppy... so that is the story of why our names always start with a "P".

Now, we are turning our blog over to Mom so she can tell you about her outrage!

There is a small town in Georgia called Sugar Hill that is trying to ban Pit Bulls and Pit Bull Mixes from all public places. Although I am not a "Pit Bull person", I do know that not all Pit Bulls are aggressive or dangerous. They are only that way if people have taught them to be! I have met some very sweet Pit Bulls and I have met some very aggressive and dangerous small dogs. If that city is allowed to ban Pit Bulls in public areas, what breed will be next? And where are the people with Pit Bulls and Pit Bull Mixes supposed to walk their dogs? This just has me very upset! ANY dog can be made to be dangerous! I don't know what these people are thinking! There are lots of animal shelters full of dogs already and now, I am afraid there will be even more when Pit Bull owners start turning in their dogs so they don't have to move. I know that not ALL of them will do that, but I hate to see it happen to even one dog. I certainly hope the city of Sugar Hill comes to it's senses before they start banning Any dogs!

Our mom feels better, now that she has "vented".

I agree, punish the deed not the breed!

We like the stroy of your names. I seem to have become Hairy Harry at the moment as I am hugely fluffy!

We think your names are just perfect.

And we believe every dog should have a chance to show how nice and lovable they are. One of the nicest dogs I know is a Pit Bull named Pickles (another "P" name!).

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

We love the story of your names..

We don't agree with that city either. Pitt Bull's are not mean to start with it is how they are raised. Jan has a very nice story about the Micheal Vick dogs on her website. You should go check it out...


Urban Smoothie Read said...

hey, my name start with a 'P' too...

Ferndoggle said...

My name is Penny because I'm the color of a penny too! Your pawrents have excellent taste in names.

Boooooo to Breed Bans!


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Breed Bans are so wrong. Any dog not properly socialized can be mean....bad owners...not bad dogs.

We agree with ur mom 100%!!!

Loved ur name story! Half the time Mumsie can't remember what our names are and goes through 3 of them before she gets the one that goes with the right dog.

Mumsie is losin' it, obviously.

Airebarks etc to you guys...!!!

Thanks for the story about your names...just Perfect! :)

Your friend, Lenny (rhymes with Penny)

Noah the Airedale said...

Hiya Penny & Poppy
Thanks for the explanation.

Personally we think people should be "banned" not dogs, no matter what the breed. Humans are full of dumb ideas....typical!

Hugs and tail wags

Навеянно прошлой темой. Почему мужчины и даже некоторые женщины (! ) считают, что мужчина ничего не должен: что он не обязан выплачивать в ресторане за даму, что он не обязан ухаживать, что он не обязан выплачивать алименты, что он не обязан быть кормильцем? кто вам дурь таку в голову вбил? отчего вы проституткам можете выплачивать, а за девушку в кафе жаба душит?
