Disgustingly cute dog picture


She seems to be settling in well. The older dog is still going through the 'I want to play, but you're new! And in my yard!' stuff, but she's getting better. Still have to figure out a name. Of suggestions I've heard Mildred, Tip, Soot, and Smudge. I need to decide on something; 'Furball' and 'Dog with perpetually worried look on face' just don't seem to cut it.

Yesterday I got a bit sick. Sick as in throw up breakfast, throw up lunch(three hours later), eat a pint of ice cream for dinner because I thought it'd stay down(it did). Then go through shivers and fever after I got home from work, after which I actually slept well. Still a bit dodgy today, so this evening decided it might be easier on the stomach than other things to I hit a Chinese buffet. Either that food is easier on your stomach than a lot of people think, or I've got a weird system, as it sat very well. Anyway, I spent a while during the afternoon in the back yard stretched out in a lawn chair dozing, and woke up-in time for work, happily- with the older dog wondering why I wasn't awake and scratching her ears and the pup asleep under the chair. Belly rubs and dinner later I went off to work, and they seemed happy with things.

I thought of Dogmatyx, but my son's dog has that name. Hmm, maybe Getafyx, after the druid?

Well, once I knew a dog named Deogi, D-O-G, I thought that was kind of clever. Of course I was young and drunk at the time. If she was a black lab I would suggest "Coal". As it is, maybe spark? Flame? Bellows? Flux? Borax? OK, maybe I should think of dog names when I'm not drinking...

Dogma, perhaps? Now she's sitting up she kinda looks like Asteryx, though he was a guy.

I'm leaning toward Smudge, with the black on her muzzle & undercoat, looks kind of like she stuck her nose in the coal or something.

On second thought, if she got out I can just see myself walking the neighborhood calling "Getafyx! Come here!" "Flux" bring diarrhea to mind, and I'd like to keep even the concept of that in the distance.
