Don't Call Me Boy! by Joan Bolger
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Fling a frisbee across any park in the land and count how often it will be returned stickily to you by a wagging rascal with 'Spot' or 'Rover' on his collar. How is a young pup expected to grow into a fine individual when he shares the same moniker as every other mutt? Be wary too of idly choosing names that seem funny with friends but could cause blushes in public. When you choose a name for your pet, remind yourself that one day you may have to yell it across a packed park or stick it up on a 'missing' poster. Give the dog a name that suits his/her looks and makes them easy to pick out in an identity parade. But go for originality where you can or if irony's your thing - the great Dane called 'Tiny' or the bulldog called 'Gorgeous' is far more effective than 'Hulk' or 'Ugly'.
