I've spent the better part of yesterday and today bouncing around names for my new pup. Amongst doing other things of course.
Now I'm heading down to my buddy's house who is doing the bulk of the work on a rifle I'm playing around with and turning into a bench rest rifle.
I will stay away from BK and TB as I want to try to eat normally today.

I didn't realize he had to stay there for that shot.

It's an I-131 shot. It's radioactive. He isn't allowed to come home until his readings are at less than 10 microSieverts of radioactivity.

It had better be something you don't mind shouting while outdoors in public.

I had no idea. Interesting.
So they keep him in a special room and wear special clothing to take care of him while he's there?

Yup. And only specially trained staff are allowed in the "iodine room".

Yeah, yeah... I don't go for knucklehead names.
I was taking care of a dog once named Bad Hair Day. Are you serious I asked the owner

I've been trying to draw the name back to the Italian heritage, which falls right into mythology, but am probably going to go in a different direction.

How can you name a puppy until you have an idea of its personality?

Beats me. I've been doing it all my life.
I already know if I ever get an English Setter her name will be Heather. I've had that picked out since the early nineties.
Just don't ask me what's for lunch today
