The new puppy has arrived!
And his name is Goose.
Despite many people’s dubious reaction to his name, I’m keeping it.
Partly because within the first two hours the kids had already called him Goose 7 gazillion times (revisit the saga of Sarah Cat and wonder why I didn’t learn my lesson) and partly because I like it (and Mom still gets ultimate naming power because I did learn something from the Sarah Cat saga).
Besides, his dad’s name is Turkey so it makes perfect sense.
But now what I need is an official registered name for Goose. On paper he’s the offspring of Mr. Impressive and Fearless (none of this Turkey and Trixie business on the official documents) but so far my inspiration has only taken me as far as Super Goose.
And so, brilliant people of the internet, give me your best idea for a registered name for Goose!
… All this talk of turkey and goose makes think (rather morbidly) of Christmas dinner, but I’m not sure you want to go with that theme!
I thought of a character from Top Gun, when I read this.

Anser Branta! 🙂 – the biological classification for grey geese (Anser) and black geese (Branta) … (alas, there’s no classification for a Goose that’s white and brown) 😀
I’m voting for “Duck, Duck, Goose”
