Our new addition to the Nantucket Home Family needs a name. We have tried various and sundry ideas but none seem to really fit. Our pal came from the Butte Humane Society where we are sure that his fellow inmates primed him on how to behave in his new home. The first 48 hours were a breeze, he was the perfect gentleman. He came to any name when called, did his duties outside, slept in his crate without a whimper and generally had us eating out of his paws.
Slowly his true colors emerged. His has a fondness for chasing cats, birds and squirrels. Our cats haven’t been home in a week. We occasionally see them slinking through the bushes and making a mad dash for their food bowl which we now leave outside on the deck rather than in the house. He has had a few mishaps in the house and he has learned to pull down the zipper in his crate so he now sleeps on our bedroom rug instead of in the crate.
We know he loves us and he does really want to be loved in return as shown by the fact that he would rather roll over and have his belly scratched than eat his dinner.
Can you help us name him? Please post your ideas in the comments. He is learning to become a shop dog and will sometimes be found in our showroom if you want to meet him in person. Bring a tasty treat because he won’t accept a dry dog biscuit!
