What's in a name?

March 20, 2011

Are you picking a name for your new puppy, kitten, or hamsterette? Dr. Rowan's pets are named Maggie, Laughlin, Vega and Haatim. (Maggie and Haatim shown.) Each one of those names has a special meaning to us. Some are unique and some are, well, Maggie. She was named after the Rod Stewart song, but little did Dr. Rowan's wife Arnica know she was picking one of the most popular names for female dogs. Nonetheless, Maggie by any other name, certainly, would not be our Maggie May. But when you are yelling a after a dog at the dog park, or trying to catch your cat's attention outside the aprtment window, it's nice to have a name all their own.
