In the name of....

Do you know, Iota mentioning about Daniel the Spaniel reminded me I had completely forgotten to tell you my choice of name for our dog.

I wanted to name him after the famous self-appointed king of Albania. A king whom many people have heard of even if they don't know where exactly Albania is.

His name was Zog. King Zog.

Zog the Dog. The dog for a family who once lived in Albania.

Perfect.

But the joke would probably wear off. Quite quickly.

And "Zog" is quite hard to call, & people would probably mishear & think I was calling "Dog".

Which would make me look a bit silly, & lacking in creative imagination.

I mean who has a dog called "Dog"?

Well, or Zog, for that matter.

And if people didn't know about King Zog, then perhaps they would just think it was Zog because I'm into easy rhyming doggerel. With made up rhymes. Zog -Dog. Like Dr Cheat Zeuss.

So no, fear not King Zog, I will not take your name in vain.

YOu're so right - I have head of King Zog, I didn't know he was the self-appointed king of Albania and, if I'm honest, I'm not certain of the exact location of Albania.
*Ahem* Did you forget to mention the name of the dog if it's not Zog?

oops, yes I did, but I mentioned her name in the previous post (it's Bingo, named after a PG Wodehouse character)

Oh & Albania is north of Greece, West of Macedonia & South of Monte Negro & Kosovo!

When I was growing up, our next door neighbours did have a dog called Dog.
