Friends, this girl doesn't give up easily... I'm back for round two of my new blog hop - Mid-Week Laughs!

This week's topic is:

Referring to her by her full name makes me laugh about MY PET!

Have you ever noticed that most pets simply go by ONE name?  Fluffy?  Oreo?  What would the world be like if our parents simply gave us one name based on our outward appearance.  I can imagine now a class full of 'Freckles' and 'Chubbys.'

Anyways, my girl has a full name: 
Adelle Girl Chapman

And, let's all just be honest, if it was more socially acceptable I'd have her full initials monogrammed on everything she owns! 
If that doesn't look like an Adelle, I don't know what does. 
(And, that may or may not be her coffee!)

I LOVE calling animals by their full name - especially, when the name is human-like. (Bonus points for senior-citizen names.)

Example:
Addy's boyfriend is named Nacho Schubert.
Addy's arch enemy next door is named Harley Cross.
My family cat growing up was named Muffy Mulvaney - porn star?!?

When Addy entered the photo contest a while back, she was the ONLY animal listed with both a first and last name.  Call me crazy, but I think that's why she won.

And... because I made this up, I write the rules, and I might be the only one participating...

#2. Car trips make me laugh about MY PET!

THIS is how Addy rides.  Every time.  We start out with her in the back like a good dog, and slowly, she makes her way to my lap.  It is awkward and uncomfortable, but I think it's hilarious.  You should SEE the look on people's faces in the cars next to us.  (Jeff is mortified, but I know they are jealous.)  Besides, I admire Addy's confidence in her 75 pound curvaceous bod.  The laughs are TOTALLY worth the dog hair and bruises I, undoubtedly, acquire.

Ok... your turn!

  3. she's too cute, and since she's famous and all I think it's definitely acceptable for her to get her initials monogrammed into her belongings! :)
