What's in a Name?

It's a long story...we wanted a dog to be a friend for our Molly....you'd think that having so many people around would be enough but she just seemed sad and lonely sometimes. So, we went to the Humane Society...we found a lovely friend for her....they played so well together (Molly came with us to the Humane Society). We brought her home, her name was Daisy, she was already potty trained she was perfect in all ways (except her shedding black hair). Then a fight...Molly was hurt it was so upsetting....after much worrying, much research on the internet and another fight we decided Daisy would not be the dog for us. We took her back...her story does have a happy ending..we know she was adopted by a family with two little boys...we were there, we saw it happen! So back to my long story. We had to find another dog....only exchanges, no refunds. I came home from work on Friday...the kids were so so excited....."there are some basset puppies on the website!!". Another trip to Omaha (third one this week!). There were two males left. We saw both of them...we fell in love with the first one. He came home with us after Molly met him and approved. Then the fun began....what shall we name him!!??? Boy the opinions!! Everyone liked something different. After two days of "discussion" he has a name!! We had to write everyone's choices on little pieces of paper, put them in a bowl and draw his name...but he has a name!! His name is.....MURPHY! He is adorable and cute and we love him!

You are never going to believe this, but as I was reading your blog I thought...hmmm, maybe they'll want name suggestions. I was going to suggest Murphy!! NO KIDDING!!!! Kowhai came home with a webkinz the other day and we all suggested a name. I said Murphy and she chose it, so I guess I'm on a Murphy kick! Great pick!!

Hi, Murphy! He's super cute! So sad it didn't work out with Daisy. Sometimes things work out for the best.
