Our Japanese Names

Willow the Black Airedale tagged us to play this Japanese name game.

Spell out your name using the given Japanese letter-translation below.

A - ka, B - tu, C - mi, D -te, E - ku, F - lu, G - ji, H - ri, I - ki, J - zu, K - me, L - ta, M - rin, N - to, O - mo, P - no, Q - ke, R - shi, S - ari, T - chi, U - do, V - ru, W - mei, X - na, Y - fu, Z - zi.

My name would be Rinkajijikiku! What a mouthful!
Mitch would be Rinkichimiri! A little bit easier to pronounce!

Wow! Rinka and Rinki! This might get a little bit confusing when mom calls us!

We got a package in the mail yesterday! Mitch and I are thinking that we may want to re-wrap this and send it back where it came from!

Neither one of us is crazy about getting our toenails touched so we'll have to let you know how we love or hate this new idea that mom thinks could be the greatest!

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

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch


  1. w00f's maggie and mitch...hmmm me finks u 2 iz doomed...mama and daddy been lookin at dose fingys gonna hunt me a good hiding place..

    b safe,

  2. We need a manicure set at our house.Lilly went to the groomers today to get her nails cut and she pooped right in the middle of the floor! What a spaz!

  3. Isn't that a fun game?!
    Oooh, the dremel. We've heard about that. We hope it makes manicures and pedicures easier for you!

  4. Maggie and Mitch
    You should come wun wif me at my acts like a giant emewy boawd cause it's while you'we playing and wunning like the wind..youw nails get done, hehehehe
    I like youw japanese nameses
    smoochie kisses

  5. Boy, and I glad that your names are Maggie and Mitch and not those other names. I can spell Maggie and Mitch! Hehehehe

    I don't think that I'd like that package, either. That just goes to show you that not all packages are good and that you can't judge a book by it's cover. Right?

    Love and Koobuss Kisses,

  6. If it is a dremel, RUN!!! My person tried to have that done on me and I was horrified. I hope no one sends me one of those packages.

    Your friend,

  7. hi Mitch and Maggie, let us know how the toe trimming goes. we aren't the biggest fans of the toenail trims either. mom is always trying out crazy new ideas to make it more fun for her - torture for us, we think! maybe the dremel is the perfect too? please let us know.


  8. Hi, Maggie and Mitch!
    or Rinka and Rinki!
    You are right... re-wrap that thing and act like you did not see it!
    My vet tried to use one of those with me and I cried like if he was killing me! Torture I'd say!
    I hope it works better for you!
    Kisses and hugs

  9. Wow those names are some mouthfuls!

    Lets see ours are:

    Brutus: Tushidochidoari
    Rufus: Shidoludoari
    Apollo: Kanomotatamo
    Zeus: Zikudoari
    Hera: Rikushika
    Eris: Kushikiari

    and I am (saint lover)
    Arikakitochi Tamorukushi

  10. Oh no. Run, Maggie! Run, Mitch! Run as fast as you can...or hide that thing in a deep black hole and cover it with concrete. If you want to see a big brave Boxer whimper like a sissypants, cut my nails with one of those things ... oh I don't even want to go there.

  11. (Ssshhhh. Sorry M & M. We're hiding. Saw that Awful Machine. Shhhh! TTYL.)

    slinking away are the whippets

  12. I like Maggie and Mitch better than those other names that I can't even bark out.
    No on in this house is allowed to touch our toe nails. They would probably cut off our feet.

  13. What's that new chew toy you got that you don't like? I haven't seen one before, maybe best then for me? Oh, but paw you two.

    Wags, ERic

  14. that's are one looooooooong name. i'll never remember it. stick to maggie & mitch.

    wet wet licks


  15. Your names sure are hard to pronounce! My tongue doesn't roll unfortunately. Oh no! That looks like a nail grinder. Eeek!!! Take cover!

    Love licks,
    Solid Gold Dancer

  16. That looks like what they use on my nails. It feels really funny and makes your toenails kind of vibrate. You might not like that so much... good luck!


  17. We can't even say your Japanese names...

    Well stick with M&M.....

    Spa Day at your house be sure to order room service with those peidcures....We think ice cream and pizza & some beer for Mitch and oh BLT's.....


  18. Mom walks us on the concrete she says that she is killing 2 birds with one stone.. Nail trim and wearing us out..

  20. Yikes-is that a pedicure set your mom got in the mail....I hate having my toenails touched-maybe that's why mom takes me running so much! I hope you guys are having a great time this weekend! I'm heading out to go sheep herding soon!


  21. Looks like M & M just became R & R.


  22. Hey, R & R! We absolutely HATE having a pedicure! Let us know if that thing works. Mom and Dad have one, but they haven't tried it on us...yet! I think we'll go hide in the basement. Oh...wait...that's where the thingy IS! Maybe we better find a closet! Have a great Memorial Day!

    Poppy & Penny

  23. I scream and scream the whole time Mom is cutting my nails. Actually, before she even starts cutting them. hehe

  24. Hi Maggie & Mitch!

    I got your names for Chef's International Goody Exchange! I think you both have the 4B's if I remember right... Go over to Chef's bloggy & check it out!

    My email address is

    Can you send me your address so I can start thinking hard what you two cuties would like to receive?

    Love & Licks,

  25. Yikes! I've only ever had to have my dewclaws trimmed. I guess the city cement acts like a nail file. But I do have to deal with that buzzy thing that appears every 6 weeks so it can steal my manly fur patches.

    My brother and I got ice cream yesterday and I thought my head was going to explode with the shear deliciousness. But bacon... I've never had that but it sure sounds like something that needs to find its way into my mouth immediately.

  26. Dear Rinka and Rinki,(hee hee) PL2 said she is VERY interested in that dremel and if it works( or rather if you let it get done to you!!!0 Keep her posted. WE think M+M is easier than R+R!!! Love A+A

  27. Oh gosh I'm so glad Mom or our breeder who grooms us doesn't have something like that, that dremel thing. We just get the snip and that's it for the nails!


  28. Maggie & Mitch,

    I would hide that package! Nail clippers are big meanies I tell you! I don't like them and give Mommy the most meaniest look when she tries to clip mine!

    Here are our Japanese names: ( if I spelled the right...heehee

    Arikarinki is my name Sami
    Tukafutakuku is Baylee
    Karinfu is Mommys (Amy)
    Katatakiarimoto is sister Allie's using Allison her given name.

    Kisses & Licks, Sami

  29. Rinka and Rinki sounds nice but I still prefer to call you doggies Maggie & Mitch. Opps, did you get your nails clipped over the weekend?

    ~ Girl girl

  31. Who send those gifts? Return it back to the sender..haha

    Boy n Baby

  32. Maggie - your beard looks so beautiful and plush in that first picture! Did you have it blown out?

    Great names!

    Wiley & Fievel

  33. Maggie and Mitch!

    I get dremeled, but at the spa. I love it. Okay, I hate it, but I love my groomer, Uncle Mike.

    Lots of bisquits for about 10 minutes of torture.



  34. Hi Rinka and Rinki...err, I mean Maggie and Mitch!

    A dremel!!!!! Oh, no!!! You should take that evil torture device and hide it or bury it where no one can ever find it!
    Good Luck!

    Winnie :-)

  35. hey maggie and mitch... dun worry!! the buzzy thing rules!! much better then those other things that snap! we've only ever had the dremel. our uncle clancey made it possible because the snapper thingys reallly bothered the old guy. anyhow..just lay down and relax and listen to the buzzzzy thing it will make you drowsy....reeeeeelax....

  36. Maggsie & MitchMan!

    My girl is in the market for one of those buzzy things. Where'd your mama get that thing? My girl says I'm looking like a dragon lady with my claws so long.
