The first person to answer the following trivia question correctly will win a copy of "How To Live With a Neurotic Dog" by Stephen Baker. Good luck!
What was Simon's name in the shelter before he came to live with us?
Now we shall see who has been *really* paying attention! My mom didn't even know this one, so it might be tough. If it starts to look like it is too difficult, I'll come back later with a hint.
OK, here's your first hint: The shelter people named him for one of his behaviors.
Second hint: I have spoken of this behavior as recently as within the last month.
WE HAVE A WINNER! Congratulations to Brigetta's Mom who submitted the correct answer, "Curly!" Or, as she put it, "This is a hard one. Bouncy, curly, flippy..." Still counts even if you're guessing! She did remember the behavior, and for that I am very impressed! 8)
Simon's shelter name, Curly, was very confusing until we got to know him. After all, he has the flattest, straightest, silkiest coat...I wondered what kind of drugs someone was doing when they named him "Curly." Until he got home and started doing that little back flip that he does. Then it TOTALLY made sense. Kevin and I often still call him "Curly" around the house.
So anyway, Yay for Brigetta's Mom! Please PM me your mailing address!
Thanks for playing everyone! Everyone made really great guesses!
