What's in a Name

Since you and I are still gettting to know each other here in blogland, I feel that I still have a few introductions to make. Tyler and I have a son, and his name is Strongbow. He is a tri color Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and he is just the light of our lives!
Strongbow at 11 weeks


at 4 months with his favorite toy that he has aptly named Flippy Floppy

Today at 6 and a half months



If you are thinking, "wow Sara, Strongbow is a very strange name for a dog!" I agree, so I'll tell you the story. Don't worry, I will be quick.

Before Strongbow was even a twinkle in our eyes, we had him named. Tyler and I backpacked through Scotland in 2008 and on the train from the Highlands to Edinburgh we drank a 2 L bottle of Strongbow. Don't judge, it was a long ride and we weren't driving. Strongbow is a British cider and, fear not, you can get it in the U.S. but definitely not in a 2 L bottle! So after drinking 2 L of the stuff we thought it was a brilliant name for a child. Low and behold it stuck and 2 years later our child was born! Joy to the world!
