Da Name Game

We are playing a game with Frankie Furter where today you tell the story of how you gots yer name.  We are gonna let mommy tell the stories so take it away P P Nugget (a.k.a. our best mommy):

You know we got the babies when they were just 8 weeks old.  Having been litter mates they had personalities forming for sure already.  Still we waited and watched them.  And soon Bobo was definitely Bobo and Meja was definitely Meja and they could not be anyone else.

In Michigan when we (Jerry and I) grew up there was a famous black Big Time wrestler named Bobo Brazil.  After retirement in a rural town near here he had to fight with his image as a Bad Ass because he was really a gentle giant.  After watching Bobo the Shar Pei for awhile we just kept coming back to Bobo.  He IS Bobo.  He swaggers. he's tough, he's Bad Ass looking but while he won't shy away from a fight with his little sister, he's a lovah not a fightah.  I hope Bobo Brazil would be proud.

And Miss Meja was a delicate princess from the get go.  To her Papi!!!  To him she was his baby princess.  Even though when we picked her up she had stitches in her lip from a fight with her brothers.  She's a sneaky Bad Ass.  Her 'paper' name is Meja Caliente (fiery baby girl).  But she's the most loving sweet thing you'll ever know.  Unless you're Bobo!!!

You know if you've read this blog for long that these puppies are my heart.  And truthfully their names were somehow spoken to us, an other worldy thing really.  They were meant to be ours and we were meant to be theirs.

We LOVED learning about the history of Bobo and Meja's name. It felt like it was a walk down memory lane. The kind that makes you smile big :)

BIG hugs to all of you!

Hope you had a wonderful 4th!

Lots of Luv & Kisses

I love the name "Bobo Brazil". It sounds like one of those inflatable clowns where you punch them in the nose and they just come back upright again.

Yeah, funny how that works, find the right name and of course it could never have been anything else. Thanks for sharing your stories.

Slobbers,
Mango

I love the name Bobo Brazil and the story behind it! Thor's name was simple: He was a 20 pound, 7 week old puppy thundering around the house and crashing into shins, so he was named for the Norse god of thunder, Thor! Not as entertaining as your guys, but solid.

thanks for visiting me; nice to meet you!
