A Penny For Your Thoughts

By Nancy Whitaker

JUST CALL HIM ROVER

It is always fun to get a new puppy or kitten. They become a vital part of our family and selecting a name for your pet may take some time.

A lot of thought goes into selecting just the right name for a much-anticipated new family member. When I was growing up, we always had a family dog. My grandpa, for some inane reason, always named our dogs “Rover.” We had three different Rovers that I can recall.

The first Rover met his demise when he was spotted killing the neighbor’s sheep. He was banished from our farmland and given to a city dweller.

Rover No. Two liked to bite and chase people and vehicles. He chased anything that moved, including anyone on a bicycle.
