I Love My Dogs

I have a beautiful Airedale Terrier named Hayley Mills after a childhood favorite actor.  I also have an adorable mutt named George Bailey after Jimmy Stewart’s character in the classic It’s a Wonderful Life.

I’m not the only person to name their dog with the full name of a favorite star or character.  Lorlei Gilmore did it:

And in this weeks episode of The Middle Patricia Heaton names her new found dog Colin Firth (sigh).  You can watch that full episode here:

These two totally opposite doggies are so much fun and great friends.  Couldn’t have picked better furry companions and so gentle with kids of all ages.

What’s in a name? that which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet

It seems like the simplicity of the “Happy Days” (aka the 50’s) is gone. We called our Grandmother, Grandma. Grandfather, Grandpa.
My kids called their Grandmother, Grandma and Grandfather, Grandpa.
My first 3 grandchildren call me Uma and their Grandfather, Pop-Pop. The other side of the family is Nana and Grampy.
Second son and his wonderful wife to have a child (due next Spring) decided we needed to be called Mammy and Boompa.
To quote Jimmy Stewart in Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation – who was also called Boompa by one of his Grandchildren – “BOOM-Pa????”
I think my husband has a bit of a harder time than I do with the name choices. I tend to be a bit more creative and silly and fun loving of the out of the ordinary in life. Could my son have gotten that from me? Hmmmm.
First daughter-in-law called today to state that the first Grandchildren get to name us and Uma and Pop-Pop it is!
Let the games begin! This could be interesting. I think I will get some popcorn and hot chocolate and sit back and enjoy.
I love being a Grandma- Uma – Mammy. 😉
