Yogurt Cones and the Name Game

Look what mom made us! It's an ice cream cone and it's filled with vanilla yogurt!
You've got yogurt all over your face, Mitch! hehehe
Boy is this ever yummy!
Mine is almost all gone! Do you want yours or can I have it?
Can we do this again tomorrow, mom?!

We were at Tank's blog and he was playing the name game and we thought that might be fun so we decided to tell you all how we got our names!

Dad actually named me! Mom wanted to name me Winnie after Winnie the Pooh but dad didn't like that! So Maggie was settled on! Actually, my registered name is MagapeeBriddleBritt! Yup, that's dad for ya! AKC wanted it to be different and it sure is!

When dad bought Mitch, he came with the name Ruger! ewwwwwwwwwwwwww
Mom always said that if she ever had a boy Airedale his name would be Mitch, after Mitch Miller, who had a cute little goatee!
So mom got her Mitch and dad has his Maggie and we are very lucky pups!

So until next time..................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

You are, indeed, lucky pups! Our mom had to laugh about Mitch Miller! When she was in high school, there was a boy who sat in front of her, and he used to pretend he was Mitch Miller conducting an orchestra. Mom laughed so hard that she almost got thrown out of class.

Aire-hugs,

Hi Maggie & Mitch
Yogurt cones sounds like a nice summer treat. We only get to lick the bottom of the yogurt cup.
We loved your name stories.
Love Ruby & Penny

Hi M & M,

Oh yes, I prefer Maggie and Mitch to Winnie and Ruger. Good choices on names!

BRUTUS said...

I do see the resemblance to Mitch Miller, especially in profile! It's been perfect weather here for ice cream, but I just keep getting frostypaws... Bet the real tuff (yogurt, sherbert, sorbet, or ice cream, I'd take any!) is better. You lucky ducks, you!!

On summer time, those yogurt cones are great!

Sue said...

We get yogurt before bed every night. A long time ago one of mom's dogs decided that strawberry was the best flavor, so that's what we get, but last week the store was out of strawberry so we had banana and peach. They were tasty, too.

Mom chose the names for all eight puppies in our litter. She had a lot of fun selecting them she says we've all grown into our names, whatever that means.

Cool info on the names! My mom used to watch when Mitch Miller had a TV show. She claims she was just a wee biped puppy... but I"m not sure. I think she had a pet dinosaur. Ha roo roo roo!

Chef ·˙ ۛ ♥ said...

Those yogurt cones are making me so hungry. In fact, I'm going to and sit in front of the fridge right now til someone gets the hint.

Interesting how you got your names. Mitch, I think you're much better looking than that Miller guy and your goatee is much more impressive. And Maggie,I'd love you no matter what your name is.

Those yogurt cones brought back fond memories of ice cream on the beach. We'll be SURE that Moma sees that special treats in cones come in lots of packages in lots of places.

We love your names, and we love the stories behind them. We love you!
