When DH was young and learning to train dogs, his trainer advised him to never give a bitch a woman's name because that might also be the name of your future mother-in-law!
LOL!! Ok, so never name a dog of mine Pam, then...
If you have Katcher in your dog's pedigree, then your dog is related to my Pip and Phoebe, whose sire is a littermate to Katcher.
FWIW, I generally don't use people names for my dogs, just never have. I guess some could be considered people names, but that's not what's behind the reasoning for choosing those names. The only one with a definite people name is Jill, and she came with that name. The others are Willow, Twist, Kat, Farleigh, Lark, Phoebe, Pip, Ranger, and Kestrel.
Love your dogs' names and that is cool about Pip and Phoebe!
Looking at Bonnie's pedigree, Katch had been bred to Bess. He is her grandfather on both sides, so she's got his lines coming in from her sire and
dam. I need to go and make a copy of this pedigree before I mail it in to ABCA. Of course, the mail won't run Monday with it being President's Day, so I may just get it copied over the weekend and mail it on Tuesday.
Keep all fingers and paws crossed for good weather Sunday, so she and I can get to the farm!
I don't really want to wait another week. I'm too anxious to wait!
