The Middle Name Game

A and A tagged us, so here I go.

My middle name has a special meaning. Mom and Dogdad brought me home just before the Passover celebration in 2002, when I was 3 and a half months old. Elijah, called the prophet of peace, plays a key role in that celebration, so they decided to give me his middle name. I don't think they realized that my presence would guarantee anything but peace -- especially in those early days before I learned any manners (Mom still shudders when she remembers what I did in the kitchen and the upstairs bathroom before my training sessions). But now I do have manners, and somehow I think I have brought a sense of peacefulness to our house, despite my terrier ways.


E That's easy, it's for ENERGETIC
L That's easy too, it's for absolutely LOVABLE
I What about INTERESTED in everything and anything -- but also INTELLIGENT!!!
J How about the best JUMPING ever?
A ADORABLE would be too too easy, so how about ALL MUSCLE ?
H Again, HANDSOME would be too easy, so I think wholeHEARTED in everything I do!

Now for Just Harry. The problem is, that's his name -- and so far he has no middle name, unless it's goofball, or knucklehead, or goober, or you all get the idea. But just for fun, let's assume that his first name is Just and his middle name is Harry.

H HAPPY-GO LUCKY, fits the bill.
A But so does ANXIOUS...
R Sometimes he's REALLY SWEET!!
R And always REALLY FRISKY !!
Y But above all, he's YOUTHFUL and YOUNG AT HEART!!!

Gee, did I say all that about Just Harry? What's wrong with me? Didn't we just bark our heads off to see who would chase the trash truck away first??

Who shall I tag? I have to think about that -- and Mom needs the computer -- so more later. And maybe I will let JH have a go at it.

Hey, Jake Boy!

How cool that you adopted your peeps at the same time they were celebrating Israel's protection from the angel of death. I think there's something to that!

Very cool middle name - and very informative illiteration! How much younger is JH than you?

Goober love,

Pee Ess
If JH is a goober, would his goober name be Haroober or Goobarry, or something else?

Jake, isn't it weird that even though most times we think our siblings are the biggest pain who walk the earth, that when you get right down to it, we love them. Now that Scruffy is back from the Toad's internal plumbing system, I realize it was boring without him. Loved your middle name thoughts!!!

Lakie kisses, Lacie
