I Should Start A Movement

During lunch, I met my husband for a walk on the W&OD Trail. While I was driving him back to his office, we passed this abomination:

Yes, I understand that doggie salons require cutesy names, just like cupcake store owners are required to wear tutus and government workers are required to take the entire month of December as vacation. And I can appreciate that. What I cannot abide is when a PERFECTLY GOOD play on words is RIGHT UNDERFOOT (so to speak) and the business owner falls just short of a spectacular naming opportunity. It is just such a waste (snicker). I mean, don't these salon owners have a duty (heh) to brainstorm until the perfect name emerges from the pile?

DOG 'DO, for CHRISSAKES! DOG 'DO is the perfect name! It was right there! Dog-a-Do isn't even an acceptable #2 choice (cough, cough).

They better not come crying to me when it all hits the fan.

Available for all of your corporate naming needs,

P.S. Many thanks to The Poop Thesaurus -- what a fantastic research tool.

Raining on My Charade

Scene: Me, during a game of family charades, attempting to act out "two front teeth" by pointing at my two front teeth

Daughter: "Big teeth?"

Husband: "Buck teeth?"

Daughter: "Gigantic teeth?"

Husband: "Cartoonishly large teeth?"

Me: >Looks up number for cosmetic dentistry practice<
