And She Has a Cat Named Pen Elope

I heard an interesting pet name last weekend.

There was a woman at the dog park who had apparently adopted a dog named Socrates. Only...I guess she didn’t know how to pronounce it, because she called the dog ‘So Crates’.

I wonder if So Crates had a litter-mate named Hippo Crates?

Okay, not to scare you by leaving two consecutive comments, but I just finished reading more of your posts and being awed by your GORGEOUS illustrations and I have to say I love your blog!
Alright. I'll go now.

I love that story!

Years ago, I briefly worked with a man whose name was Donald Key. He was called Don for short and never batted an eye telling us this. No one can tell me his parents didn't give this any thought before they named him.
