How can any puppy *be* that cute?

i have a secret to tell you. you have to promise not to leak it.

(all puppies are cute. it's genetic. it's because we're hardwired to want to take care of cute things)

Yabbut, that one really has it going on. It's the closed eyes and the upturned face.

so when does she come home? i bet she sleeps curled up in a tiny ball with her back against your tummy. that's how Lola slept when she was a puppy. that little ball of warmth and puppy sweetness was the best remedy for a bad mood...
now she sleeps with her feet in my face. it's just not the same.

Correct! But I'm not giving you $500. Sorry.
Orson was actually named after Mork's alien boss on Mork & Mindy, but most people who ask about his name don't remember the show, or I assume by their age that they wouldn't. It's usually easier to say he's named after Orson Welles.
So, do people ask you if Lola's named after the Kinks song? And is she?

As long as I'm asking, how'd you come up with Manu?

i understand that. i have a cat named Muad'Dib, but people just look at me blankly so i usually call him Mo.
So, do people ask you if Lola's named after the Kinks song? And is she?

they do, and no, she's not. when we first saw her, we were talking about adopting her, and my SO and i were playing around with names. he said "Lola" as a joke, but i just thought it fit her perfectly. it's just a wiggly name.
i usually say she's named after the other Lola song... "whatever Lola wants, Lola gets".
As long as I'm asking, how'd you come up with Manu?

we didn't. that name came with him. however, it is the name of my favorite sports star from my childhood, Manu Tuiossosopo. also, it means "second born" in swahili, so we just figured it fit and stuck with it.

sometimes i think his name should be "bubbah" though.

I get that in writing, but I'm not so sure I'd catch it if I were actually talking to you. :-)

Hey, at least it's a song that actually has her name in it! I've been asked on several occasions if Brenin is named after the Irish song "Brennan on the Moor". And then there was the person who asked if he's named after Brendan Frasier...
Not to mention the people who ask me if Morag is named after the marine eel.
