Sunday Sharing - HOWLiday Style

Thanks for Frankie fur the pawesome Name Game suggestion fur today's post!
Furst some summer smile pikhs
My tree!
I was watching the neighbour fill their bird feeder!

Now to the story of how I bekhame ME - I've shared it in the past but we wanted to pawticipate in Frankie's Name GameMeet Whitney - taken August 19, 2006 with Mom's furry reliable Samsung Cell - it akhtually achieved 3-1/2 years plus in operation

In going thru past posts to share my name and such, I diskhovered THIS ONE from August of 2009 -

It is furry khool fur it shows the nice Amy lady's khanines - as they eye up 'Yvette' that Mom had transported - it turned out later that 'Yvette' was really 'Yves' - BOL!

Mom just knew I wasn't a Whitney - so she made use of the name she had khonsidered using if she evFUR had a human pup: KYRA - but she got khreative and went with our now patented trademarked khopywrited h addition to bekhome


I asked Merdie if she wanted to play along too - she woofed SURE - so we hit the arkhhives here and found THIS POST that shows Merdie and her sister Lexie and shows that Merdie was previously known as TALLULAH - she needed a name to khomplement the Lexus already in the fleet ;-)

BTW, Merdie and I have some Merdie moment pikhs to share tomorrow - all we khan say is be ready!

******It looks like BleuJaye is getting ready fur the fireworksBath timeMaybe I need to get some wee rubber dukhkies!

This is truly one furry busy publikh bath - there is a nevFUR ending flight path in - somedays Mom fills it multiple times - she swears and dekhlares the khatbirds return 0.000002 sekhonds after they've flown away - the robins, sparrow, and finches have khome to rely on it - and so have those tree rats - Mom should have inkhluded the pikhs of them we snagged last week - maybe she'll do that fur Monday - AND of khourse the khats like it too -

We hope evFURRYone has a safe Sunday - and if woo are 'here' a HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

I think she'll get out and take some videos of the fireworks later this evening so we khan all enjoy them from the safety of not being there fur them but getting to experience the beaWOOty they do khontain!


Whitney and Tallulah



JackDaddy said...

Tallulah? Really? :)

Amy / Layla the Malamute said...

WOW!! You are the FARTHEST thing from a Whitney!! I can't believe that. "Spot" would've been a more accurate name!

Tallulah is a little odd too. Mercedes is much prettier.

Great name choices! I especially like the personalized/patented "kh" in Khyra. It makes it even more special :)

Thanks for posting the old links, we loved looking at them!

Jan said...

I was Missy, Chamois was Sugar, Tudee was a stray with no name. Timmy was--wait for it--

Tinkerbell on his AKC papers.


See, Whitney is not as bad as our old names.

Happy Independence Day!
Kisses and hugs

houndstooth said...

I think you and Merdie both ended up with the names you were meant to have!


giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Whitney? what were they thinking?

Samantha said...

Whitney? I like the name, but it is definitely NOT vous!!! We love you Khyra!!!
Massively Big Hugs and Happy 4th,
Sammie and the crew

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

And I-I-I-I-I will always love Youuuuuu! As Khyra, of course. BTW Dad, the car nut, loved the Merdie/Lexus name stories!

Batu said...

Happy 4th of July to you! Great to hear the story of where your names came from....

Maggie and Mitch said...

You are definitely a Khyra and a Merdie! Those names suit you both perfectly!
Happy 4th of July!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Clive said...

Happy 4th of July!

Can't imagine you as anything other than Khyra! Merdie's name suits her much better too!

best wishes
Clive and the NSLM

The Thundering Herd said...

Which is why I will always think of the first Whednesday of the month as Whitney's Whicked Whednesday.

1000 Goldens said...

You are for sure a Khyra more than a Whitney - good call Khyra's Mom! P.S. We liked the puppy pictures of your human Mom in that link...very cute :)

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Our silly Mom loves the name Whitney AND Tallulah. In fact Dakota could have been a Tallulah if it weren't for the Dadster nixing it bigtime. We do think it fits Merdie for some reason. But you are so NOT a Whitney - Khyra is pawfect.

That was one big bluejay in the community bath.

Happy Fourth of July!

Mango said...

So that "h" in your name was just a leftover letter banging around the DOH's brain, huh. Most khurious.


Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! Great name choices ... I do have a doggie friend named Tallulah ... Merdie just fits you a Golden. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Ricky the Sheltie said...

Yes, Whitney just didn't suit you, Khyra! Lucky for you your mom changed your name!

Birds love my outdoor water bowl - we have a fish pond right there with a bird bath rock and still they prefer the bowl!

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

OMD! Your Whitney and Merdie's Tallulah be as bad as my September! Aren't we lucky we all gotted new names, not to menshun furever homes! Happy Forth!

Raising Addie said...

Khyra your name is as beautiful as you are!

We recently entered Lucie into a pet model contest in our area. She lost to a beautiful husky that reminds us of you! So we were ok that she didn't win.

Hope you have a great holiday!

Lots of Luv & Kisses
Addie, Lucie and Hailey

Alien said...

They are all good names.

Anonymous said...

Ahh, the letter "h" -- you took this somewhat forgettable 8th letter of the alphabet and made it a ☆!
Happy Holiday KHyra:)

Ruby and Penny said...

We like Khyra & Merdie so much better than Whitney & Tallulah.
We have 1 bird batch & a couple of bowls we keep filled with water for the birds.
Love Ruby & Penny

AFSS said...

We will play the name game this afternoon. Scylla is throwing a picnic this morning and giving a garden tour.

We loves your names. And we thinks Khyra with an h is purrfect for you. ~Fenris

Gus said...

You and Merdie got much better names out of the deal. Have a safe and happy fourth.


Furkidsmom said...

Happy 4th of July!

JD and Max said...

Hi Khyra! Frankie is a genius to have come up with such a great game! We're having so much fun finding out how our pals got their names. Funnily enough we posted about how we got our names just a few weeks ago so we haven't joined in this game in pupson, we're just enjoying 'watching from the sidelines'!!

You are a Khyra through and through, we couldn't imagine you as a Whitney! And we've always loved the name Merdie, we were delighted that she joined in the game too.

Great pics as ever!! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Dory and the Mama said...

What very cool name stories!!Thanks for sharing them and the beautiful weekend pictures!!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

"Whitney" and "Tallulah" sounds like the other half of a tennis foursome where the men are named "Biff" and "Prescott"! ;-)

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Teehee. We may have to start calling you Whitney and Tallulah, just because! (I would think Tallulah would be tough to call out... Sort of like Mom thinks 'Vercingetorix' is a cool name, but can't ever imagine trying to call "Here Vercingetorix, here!") I love reading how everyone got their names - very clever humans we hang out with! Happy Fourth of July!!

I wonder how our dogs will feel about fireworks. Good luck! Happy 4th of July!

Heather and Ellie said...

No, really? Whitney?? I cannot imagine you as a Whitney! But Khyra fits you perfectly.

Martha and Bailey said...

Happy Independence Day to you all - we have kept our original names as they were the only things we had.
We would absolutely have had to change them though if we had been called Whitney or Tallulah!
Thanks for sharing the stories.

Sally said...

Wow a BleuJaye, they are so beautyful and so rare here. They are strongly observed and protected. What luck you have to have a friend like this.
Nice woooh

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

Whitney and Tallulah...hehe
We prefer you as a Khyra and a Merdie. :)

The name game is fun, thanks for sharing with us.

That blue Jay is so pretty, those birdies must really trust you and your mum to come so close like that. Our human loves watching the birdies out there doing their thing. :)

Happy 4th of July to all of you. :)

3 doxies said...

I knew was a Whitney cuz we dicussed it befores and that is soooooo NOT a name fur a beautiful Sibe like you. Mum wasn't crazy bout sissy Whitney's name but her was already 8 yrs old and thought it would be best to keep it.

♥Da fambly kitties♥ said...

We hope that you have a wonderful 4th filled with excitement and happiness.

Huffle Mawson said...

I remember your name story Khyra. I like Khyra better than Whitney, it definitely suits you.

BeadedTail said...

We think your and Merdie's real names are better than your first temporary names!

We like your summer smile pikhs Khyra! You look so happy!

Those birdies sure do love your bath. Does Butterscotch and Brofur keep an eye on those birdies there too?

Hope you have a safe and happy 4th!

Maggie Mae said...

I luvs your names too! Great choices. :)

Happy July 4th!

Woofs and Licks,

Tiki and Mowzer said...

:) hi :) thanks for the comment :)
kitty licks,

Frankie Furter said...

Hi Khyra, it's Frankie Furter's cousin Sarge. Great name stories. I agree with Dennis that Whitney and Tallulah sound like posh, stuffy country club names. Definitely not creative and fun like your Khyra. Love the many "H's"...they are soooo fun. Merdie is great too. Much better. Thanks for sharing the stories.
Grr and Woof,

Moose said...

Whitney? What? Tallulah? ok that one is ok but does not seem right either. Khyra is definitely the right name!
He he he tree rats... he he he.

THE ZOO said...

Happy 4th of July!

those are grate stories of how yall gotted yur names. beans can gife bad names sumtymes (we mean yur furst names not yur names now, yalls current names really suit yoo two).

yoo say Merdie and her crew iz named after luxury cars?? we are all named after wrestlers here.

Keisha said...

Wow, I liked reading the story of Merdie. The birds are pretty too. :)

Happy Fourth of July!! :)


Kari in WeHo said...

happy 4th! I love your name :)

Cheyenne -Millie said...

We don't think that you look like a Whitney! Your name Khyra most definitely suits you!

And Merdie is a Merdie!!!

Monty says "Hi Khyra!"

Cheyenne -Millie said...

Oopss!! Happy Fourth of July!!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Hi Khyra
I think you look like a Khyra, not a Whitney!
And Merdie- that other name Tallulah is kinda- strange. I like Merdie for sure.
I think you need to get a bigger pool for all those birds, tree rats and kats that like to use it.
A nice pool - that is what you need.

the booker man said...

miss khyra,
yup, you are so not a whitney, and miss merdie is so not a tallulah!! khyra and merdie are just the perfectest names for you two ladies!
i hope you had a super awesome independence day!!
the booker man

Rambo said...

Khyra is much prettier than Tallulah or Whitney. Plus...I know a pug named Tallulah and Khyra suits you much better!!
Great name game story K.

Twix said...

I've wondered about your name. I knew you used to be Whitney but didn't know where Khyra came from. And Merdie as Tallulah? OMD!
I hope you had a wonderful 4th!

ocmist said...

Khyra fits you MUCH better than Whitney, and WHO would name some one like Merdie, Tallulah? She's a classy one, and Mercedes is much better! Thanks for sharing in the name game. It was interesting. The CCC

Teddy Bear said...

We love Khyra and Merdie a lot.:)
