The Meaning Behind the Top 30 Male Dog Names

http://www.petplace.com/dogs/male-dog-names/page1.aspx

The analysis for "Cody" is on #7, David. I think it sounds like your boy.   ;)

My boys' names, Cam and Brooks, aren't on there. "Max" is on there. Isn't that Chrissi's beautiful dog's name? There may be others. Tell us if the description matches your dog.

There was a "Rusty" -- my "Rusti" was a girl, but she was a reddish color, and she was affectionate.
  :)

The only one of our dogs is this:

23. WINSTON Dogs given this rather distinguished name often uphold the name with dignity. They are commonly loyal and friendly. They like to meet new people and can be quite smart. Origin: English. The meaning is: Kind Town; or a friend's estate.


and it is nothing like our dog! LOL!! except the smart part....but I think it is because we didnt' name him Winston as in the name but as in the gun....We also have one named Remie (Remington) and one named Magnum, had one named Colt, see the trend there??  :laugh:

Winston is our best guard dog.

silkworms as pets?

Never heard of that, but if they have ant farms, why not silkworms?

"Until one has loved an animal, a part of ones soul remains unawakened"

...........every animal lover would agree with that.
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

NAIROBI (AFP) -  A baby hippopotamus that survived  the

tsunami waves on the Kenyan coast has  formed a strong 

bond with a giant male century-old  tortoise in an animal

facility in the port city of Mombassa,  officials said.

The hippopotamus,  nicknamedOwen and  weighing about

300 kilograms (650 pounds), was swept  down Sabaki

River into the Ind ian Ocean , then  forced back to shore

when tsunami waves struck the Kenyan  coast on

December 26, before wildlife rangers  rescued him.



"It is incredible.  A-less-than-a-year-old hippo has adopted  a

male  tortoise, about a century old, and the tortoise seems  to

be very  happy with being a 'mother'," ecologist Paula Kahumbu, 

who is in  charge of Lafarge Park , told  AFP.



"After it was swept away and lost its  mother, the hippo was traumatized.

It had to look for something to be a  surrogate mother.

Fortunately, it landed on the tortoise  and established a strong bond.

They swim, eat and sleep together," the  ecologist added.

"The hippo follows the tortoise exactly  the way it followed its mother.

If somebody approaches the tortoise,  the hippo becomes aggressive,

as if protecting its biological  mother," Kahumbu added.



"The hippo is a young  baby, he was left  at a very tender age and

by nature, hippos are social animals  that like to stay with their

mothers for four years," he  explained.



"Life is not measured by the number of  breaths we take,

but by the moments that take our breath  away."




Much  of life can never be explained but only  witnessed."
-  Rachel Naomi Remen, MD

People ask me what kind of dog I have and I just answer "that's a good question".

I rescued Keller when he was about a year old. He is white with one brown spot on his back and brown around the eyes, but not connected, so it's not a mask.

He is a mutant. Deaf. Blind in one scary eye. The eyes are ice blue and startling. For an idea, go to http://deafdogs.org/faq/ and scroll down. Look for the eyes with the pupils messed up and off center.

He is probably an Australian cattle dog, but we'll never know.

He's now six. Convinced he's constantly starving, he is always standing at the dog food cabinet behind me and whining. (He's very overweight.)

When we go for a walk, he thinks he's in charge and puts the leash in his mouth and loves to suddenly stop and pull hard on it. Good thing he can't hear my response. (Probably also good he's deaf and can't hear my harp playing.)

I was amazed when I read the description of your dog. Our son had a dog very similar, which sadly had to be put down only a month or so ago.

He too, was white with a brown spot, stone deaf, and blind in one eye,  and could hardly see out of the other one, and his blue eyes used to seem like they were looking in different directions. He was dumped out the front of our property, where we used to live, which had big properties around us with sheep, so we always assumed he was a sheep dog, (kelpie, or maybe a cross border collie). We live in Australia, so he may have been, as you say, an Australian cattle dog.

We called him Albie, short for Albino. We think he was also retarded or autistic, because for the ten years my son had him, he continually walked or ran around in circles. He would pick a tree, or a shed, and then continually run around it, all day long, until eventually he had a foot deep furrow around it. Even if we leaned a broom up against the wall, he would circle thru the broom. We figure he must have travelled nearly a million miles in his lifetime.

He never put on much weight because of all the running he used to do, but he had a huge chest, which we always said, was the huge heart he must have, once again for all the runnig he did.

He lived a happy life, and was much loved by all the family.
