His Name is "Moe"

"So what are you going to name your new friend?" Tommy's mom asked.

"Moe",  he answered without hesitation.


"I don't know, he just looks like a Moe."  
"Hey Moe" called Tommy.  The little puppy's ears perked up and he wagged his tail.  "See, he likes it" shouted Tommy as Moe bounded toward his friend.

  13. Aw, reminds me of my little dog. Came with a hideous name that I simply had to change, and I'd test her on the old one to see how well stuck it still was occasionally. The day she stopped coming to "missy" and knew she was entirely and only "Allison" was a happy day indeed!
