oh boy!

Picking names in our house for dogs when I was little, was a family event. The first dog that joined us in Indiana was MacGregor. A good Scottish name for a Collie.

The next dog to join our family was a Newfoundland. My dad said we should call her Phoebe, and in honor of our friends and the way she looked we added Kuma to her name. Phoebe is a blackish bird. Kuma is Japanese for Black Bear.

Now, the couch in the cover picture, that is pure 1970s Americana.

  1. My dog is very small. But I like it being small, they live more and they are easier to handle. The name of my dog is Evarista, there is a great Spanish punk singer called Evaristo from the Basque Country that sings with rage like a dog barks. All my dogs will be called Evaristo o Evarista. I love his music.

  3. My brother left me a rottweiler once. She was huge!

    In the past months, our home became an involuntary shelter for strays. We now have 5. Plus the surviving 4 liters that’s probably descendants of my old dog that passed away last year.

    I have named only two of the dogs. I haven’t named any of the surviving pups yet.

  4. Well hello Phoebe. My don’t you look pretty and so laid back. My previous dogs were a Shetland Princesse, an American Eskimo Belle and Tasha who was mix German Shepherd and Husky but not that big actually. Great to meet Phoebe…
