On the way home yesterday...

There was a guy walking his West Highland White Terrier. I grew up with one, so had to stop and fuss--really sweet adorable little dogs, if a pain in the ass (stubborn as all hell).

anyway, so he sez the dog's name is John Paul, named after the Pope.

as in, Pup John Paul.

sadly, no Pupmobile.

Cutest story ever... I have a friend with a Westie called Jeremy. They all have such noble names (actually, I had a aunt with one called MacIntosh - like the British raincoat.)

Ok, that's kind of awesome.

I am sure that he meant as an honour but know that someone somewhere is saying blasphemy. LOL I kinda like it.

Considering it's in the Castro there's about 90% chance the guy already officially qualified as blasphemy incarnate, so, you know, what the hell,

"and your little dog, too."

Yeah, Westies are cute though I am reminded of Scottie dogs as well.

Yeah, they're related. Scotties are very cute too; sometimes I think they maybe tend to be a bit more bad tempered? so I've heard. cute as hell though. all terriers actually. wire haired fox terriers are adorable.
