Humans name their children with no idea of a personality all the time.

Does not compute. What means "too much garlic"?

There is no such thing as "too much garlic". It is forbidden by law

Some humans name their children with no idea, period!

We used to have a cat called Pandora (due to the fact that she was trouble from the minute we opened the box we carried her home in! ). She was nicknamed Pandy and came when called. The next door neighbour's wife asked my mother if it was embarrassing having to shout "Randy" every time we had to call the cat!

My GSD of treasured memory came without a name and was a rescue so we called her Vashti after the queen in the Book of Esther who refused her husband's drunken command that she come and "show her beauty" (yes, that is interpreted as meaning what you're thinking it meant!) to his friends at a banquet and was banished for her pains. We thought it apt for our dog as she was unwanted and cast aside too.

All of our pets have been named after Lord of the Rings characters. They're small, furry, intelligent creatures, after all We did have to branch out from the hobbits, though. Right now, we have Elwing, Pippen and Belladonna.

When I was a kid, my mom named a black cat we had Bagheera, for the black panther in "The Jungle Book."

True tale: Neighbors back home had been among the first of the families to move into their new home in a brand-new development. When saying goodbye to their kids at the front door one day their little dog went right out the door. The kids had to get onto the bus so Mom, a petite attractive lady, started to chase after the dog. Yelling for the dog. In her slinky little robe. The dog's name? Mister. "Mister, yoo hoo Mister! You get back here!" Poor woman never showed her face during the day until their phase was completed!

I got back from the vet with Shreddy about an hour ago. It took him 45 minutes before he came for a scritch.

My next-door neighbors have a dog named Peter. When they first moved in, I thought the lady was yelling for one of her kids all the time: "Peter! PETER! Come here!" Who names a pet Peter?!?

I just put a pot of chicken stock on to cook. Took lots of frozen ingredients and threw them together. The only fresh stuff is garlic, bay leaves and thyme. btw, we learned in culinary school not to use parsley leaves for stock because they're too pretty They should go in or on the food. Use the stems instead; they have just as much flavor and are usually discarded by home cooks.
