In my family, we’ve never been creative about naming our pets. Usually, the name is indicative of their floof or coloring and that’s why when all of Mama’s little birds left the nest, she got a pup and named him Sandi. But at some point over the years, I started calling him Rooney Toons. And lately, just Toons.

Toons is getting up there in age and he’s had a lot of pup problems, most noticeable is his skin condition due to Cushing’s disease. He’s not as shiny and floofy as he once was, but Mama has done a lot to keep him happy, out of pain/discomfort, and in a relative state of health. And no matter how stubborn he can be sometimes and even though he’s officially Mama’s dog, he’s still my Toons.

The same Toons that barks at all the deer in the front yard and would pee all over the floor just to show you he was mad. My Toons that would run down the hall to greet you in the morning, or ride in the back seat with his nose pressed against the window. And the same Toons that even after I moved away to Virginia, slept in front of my old room for at least a year.

I’ll always love Toons, but I look forward to the day (hopefully soon!) when I will have a pup of my own.
