Pictures or it didn’t happen. From the owner of Shep and Molly Claire. Names have nothing to do with music.I know for a fact that we have many dog lovers here. I wondered what names guitarists pick for their dogs. Debi and my new pup is a toy / miniature Australian Shepherd. He's a beautiful little guy. My wife and I chose Arlo for his name. Yes. We were thinking of Arlo Guthrie. Once "potty" training is behind us I and Arlo will be working on a duet of "City of New Orleans". I'd like to play banjo while he plays guitar but I'm learning that his half of the vocals alone might take some time. If we record it I may have to play all the instruments. That's OK. His little claws are hard on rosewood. The little guy is working hard on getting his enunciation just right to not only deliver the lyrics but fill them with the emotions they deserve. I'm so proud of him.
Anyone else hear name their pups after songwriters / guitarists / bands?
One of my all-time favorites of our many rescue dogs, our Toby was a Lhasa Apso, killed by a neighbor's wolf-cross dog who got off his chain one Christmas morning. I swear, on our walks we could have gone all the way to Roseburg and never caught sight of him, but when you got there he'd have come when you called him.Our current dog, a 9 month old Lhasa Apso is named Enzo. Mr Ferrari’s name actually came to us from the book: The Art Of Racing in the Rain, which is told first person by Enzo the dog. Since reading that book, my wife‘s mind was made up that the next male dog would be Enzo.
The first picture was last fall, the second a month or so ago.

Enzo is our second Lhasa. Lucas was our first. Lived to be 14 when he passed. 24 pounds of the biggest dog in the world. He was the alpha male and size didn’t matter to him. Totally fearless.One of my all-time favorites of our many rescue dogs, our Toby was a Lhasa Apso, killed by a neighbor's wolf-cross dog who got off his chain one Christmas morning.

I've read that Lhasa Apsos were bred to guard ancient royalty, against wolves among other threats. Toby guarded us as he was bred to, but he didn't know he was supposed to have 20 or so more LAs with him.
