The change of the call name of the Boston Terrier Formerly Known as "Smooch."
I didn't name her. That was the call name bestowed by the breeder from whom she was re-homed, and she was a stranger to me so why mess with changing her name right off the bat? While Smooch is cute, it somehow never seemed to ring true with her, or me. In short, she didn't answer to it with any great enthusiasm. I found myself making up names for her - "Smoochie, Smoochy-poochy" all sorts of combinations to get that two-syllable name dogs like best. Meh. Nothing clicked. So we tried other names, and tonight I think we agreed on her name. She wants to be Sophie. She likes Sophie! Sophie made her dance!
So we are going to test-drive Sophie, and see if we agree that this is her name.
