Soon, one of these two funny-looking puppies will be MINE ALL MINE. By then he will be even cuter. I'm not sure yet which one, but we're thinking about names.
I prefer to stick with the native American plant name, being that the Boston Terrier is a native American breed and all. Hence big sister Trout Lily (pictured below, ears up with their mother, ears back). When I say big sister, I mean just that: The two have the same parents. Because if something is close to perfect, why mess with that?
So. I loooove the name Sweet William (my daughter's idea!) but I don't think "Willy and Lily" is a great idea. Too similar. My husband likes Bastard Toadflax ("Toady," "Toad," "Flaxie," etc., but not "Bastard," obvs.). Someone recently suggested Figwort. that's kind of cute. Figgy. Related to the snapdragon. Any other ideas? I'd like a woody plant maybe. Very masculine. Hey! What about "Woody"?
BTW, this picture was taken at the Boston Terrier Picnic. Check it out, if you're into that sort of thing.
