    My dad suggested the name Forrest for our Golden Retriever. I love the movie Forrest Gump, and the name just sounded right! Here is Forrest, AKA Mr. Gump, AKA Mr. Dump, AKA Stinky Poo.


    Fittingly he LOVES to run. His registered name is Goldenquest’s Run Forrest Run 😀

    He is actually very smart but likes to sleep like an idiot…

    We named our puppy a traditional “doggy name” (think Charlie, Max, Fido, etc). I would have went with something else but I picked the breed and my husband picked the name.

    @MrsPanda99:  Thank you! She has grown up a bit more now. (7 months) But I still think she’s the most adorable dog ever. And SO expressive! She huffs and whimpers and sighs and squeaks, all depending on how she feels about whats happening around her. 😀

    Let’s see..


    I have a horse named Sky – because his eyes are blue. 

    My second horse is named Tuff because he had a really tough start in life. 

    Then there are the three cats.  Mia – No idea why Fiance named his cat that.  Stinker – I named her that because she has an attitude.  And the third is simply called “the little cat”…  Here is the little cat hanging out on the window bed:
