She Has A Name

Had a dream where I was playing with the new dog and kept calling her a certain name that I couldn't quite hear. When I woke up, I realized I'd been calling her 'Fiona' in the dream even though that is a human name & not at all Christmas-y!

Anyway, I looked up the meaning and it's Scottish for 'white' or 'clear' so it certainly seemed destined to be her new name!

Pretty name. Sounds like you have decided to keep her.

Yes, she's really settling down and fitting into the household!

Carol, it took me a while to get the Shrek thing - we don't have little ones and aren't big movie buffs!

Thanks, Emma's Mom, it wasn't a name I'd even considered but I like it too.

Jan - we need to meet up at a doggie park on a weekday somewhere between you and me and let all of the babies meet each other!

Ok - explanation needed. I've seen bits and pieces (very little bits and pieces) but I'm clueless.

That's a deal but let's wait for a little warmer weather! It's cold and I know you don't like it any more than I do!

I'll let Carol explain about Shrek!

Sorry about the Shrek thing. I have Shrek and the sequels and we do watch them with the grandkids.

So Diane, 4 animated movies came out starring a character named Shrek. Kinda of a big ugly ogre. He finds his love ogre named Fiona, they marry, etc. Can't really tell you how it ends because I haven't watched the last movie yet.

OK now I get it. I guess the bits and pieces I've seen didn't have Fiona in it.

Fiona is a beautiful name. it does sort of fit in with Christmas.....it means white and snow is white, so you really did get your wish.
Congrats on having her as part of your family. I'm sure she will bring you many years of happiness and Teddy will be so happy to have a sister.
