Gone to the dogs

Marriage doesn’t only affect two-legged creatures. My dog Charlie just had his name changed, too. His veterinary records now read “Charlie Mahmoud”. I realize it didn’t matter to Charlie what the vet’s office called him, but it did to me. However, it struck me as just a tad funny that my American Cocker Spaniel, who will also be moving with us to Germany, now has an Arabic name. Talk about the impact of globalization, huh?

We have always giggled at the thought of our animals being known as Storm and Eclipse Kenju. It just sounds funny!
