Mostly True Memoirs
WE NAMED HER BLUE
We named her Blue.
We had a hard time coming up with this.
I wanted to give her a flower name.
The guys nixed that idea.
She could be an impression of a flower.
They nixed that as well.
They suggested all kinds of hooker names.
Yeah, I nixed those.
Our neighbor dog who we all love is Bear.
We thought of Bear variations.
Yogi. Boo Boo. Smokey. Ted. Paddington.
What about Baloo from The Jungle Book?
We all liked that.
But when we called out the name, it came out as Blue.
The dog responded.
And so she chose her own name.
