dog haiku

Someone called her Flo
I am taking out the L
I will call a truce

boynton was inspired to pen a quick haiku to youknowwho after reading this crop (via Making light)

and on a dog theme, I saw these beautiful dog tags last week on fishbucket.
There are several reasons that motivate me to make my special one-of-a-kind creations. One being the idea of giving. Giving is loving. As an artisan, I throw myself into each piece.
Also, I love dogs and adorning a beloved pet is, I think, a wonderful thing to do

Max or Spot (or Doug for that matter) might be one thing, but it would be more challenging to inscribe a name like Sir Theodore Stormy Day, Tarmack Von Bruno or Seabreeze Seclusion which are some of the more unusual dog names listed here. (see Dog name results)

Those tags are funky.

That's great. And what a name for an artysan - Goodman Griese. Made up? if so, inspired by seventeenth century puritans, pilloried brilliantly by Ben Jonson as "Zeal-of-the-Land Busy". When i googled that name I found "Tribulation Wholesome" as well.. and John Littlewit, Win-the-Fight, Dame Purecraft...

I think my fave is "spot".
Almost makes me want to go out and find a 'spot' to match.

Cancel that Call.
I think the name of my next dog will have to be "Tribulation Wholesome"
Altho' "Win The Fight" might be a good name for a bluey - not that I'd be ever tempted to go down that track again.
On the other hand - a pair of litter mates named
"Win The Fight" and "Wa La Wa" might work ;)

& I'll have to follow that Ben Jonson lead myself...

that's an interesting site - hypertext based on names. I've been wandering around literature at the whim of a Selima or a Caledonia.
From the T list, I like the "Virtue" names myself, although there would be a certain irony (or perhaps just Hope) in bestowing such a class of name upon a non-virtuous breed of dog.
Still "Tamer" springs to mind, or even "Tensy"

"This is about me!
Possums are my thing, y'know.
Hey! Get off my bed."
