August 16, 2005 Puppy Names

Most of you that have been out to the kennel or around Mark and I at races or such know that Mark is very good about deferring to me in most matters relating to the dogs. However, every now and again he gets an idea in his head in regards to a dog name, which dog to keep, etc and just won't let it go. It would be extremely foolish of me to not take these requests very seriously.

For the last few days, as I've been bouncing names for Nahanni's pups off him he keeps referring to the puppies by a set of names he picked out for them. This morning, as we were returning the latest 'escapees' to the pool, he picked up the boy and again referred to him by the name he's been calling him for the last 4 or 5 days. "Are you serious?", I asked, "Do you really want to give them those names??". He looked at me incredulously and said, "Yes".

I spent a couple hours seeing if I could get my head around these names and finally agreed that I could and that, actually, in a twisted sort of Mark way, they were kind of cute names.

Now, we've decided to not make this too easy on you guys - we are going to play some Trivial Pursuit.
Here goes - Nahanni's puppies are being named after the members of a fictional rock band that spent some time with some castaways in 1965 TV series.

Do you know????

Well, the show is Gilligan's Island, the Band was the Mosquitoes, and the names are Bingo, Bango, Bongo and Irving.

Jim and Melissa, I'm blaming the two of you for this one. For my birthday the Geeks gave me the complete 2nd season of Gilligan's Island on DVD (I watch DVD's while working out, so I'm forever looking for stuff to watch). As soon as I got home with it, Mark had it open, had rifled through the menu, and was watching that episode - which he declared his all time favorite. *sigh*
