Our furry, feathered or finned friends
On the Weather thread I mentioned our new puppy & nettiesaur requested a pic. Hope you don't mind me startin' this subject.....Pets! They're just so darn cute, and I love to hear stories about how people choose their pet's names.

Our new West Highland Terrier pup, Hamish (8.5 weeks):
   
He's named after the lead character of one of our favorite (now defunct) shows on BBC America, "Hamish Macbeth" (HB was a Constable in a small north coast Scottish town called Lochdubh). In the series HB has a Westie named Wee Jock, but we preferred Hamish for our lil' critter....

Previous pets were named after characters of a favorite comic strip, "Bloom County" (Milo, Lola Granola and Hodge Podge). We had a black Lab named Mojo Jojo, a cartoon character on a show our then-4yo liked to watch. Growing up we had 2 cats, a Siamese & a Burmese named Mimi & Tuptim (characters from the musical "The King and I"), but for whatever reason we just called 'em "Kitty."

Blah blah blah....yada yada yada!

RE: Our furry, feathered or finned friends
As well as William Wallace' best friend (Hamish)

Bloom County, you say? Oh ya - you and I need to meet for a drink! My all-time favorite strip, along with "Outland".

"Cinder": Our Chow/ sumpin' girl. Found her abandoned in a snow bank when she was just a ball of fluff and teeth.

My buddy, "Dublin Bruce": My Border Collie/Aussie Shepherd.

Most of us are so caught up in life that we forget to live it.

RE: Our furry, feathered or finned friends
Here is 3/4 of our pet population

"Aslan", who is actually my husby's cat, but is my daughter's buddy http://www.flickr.com/photos/30255666@N0...hotostream

"Fonzie", who is a female, but my daughter didn't know that when she insisted on the name, http://www.flickr.com/photos/30255666@N08/5878923814/

And "Oscar", the most "relaxed and content" to do nothing cat, http://www.flickr.com/photos/30255666@N08/5878940338/

We have one more cat, but I'll need to find a picture of him.

A party without cake is really just a meeting
