    Her orignal name given by the shelther was delta, but she just wouldn't respond to it at all, and it didnt suit her (she's not a strong personality type dog if that makes sense)..

    My daughter had been telling me for about a year she was going to have 18 dogs when she was older and she rambled off a whole heap of names, and they always changed bar chloe (which always seemed to be apart of the naming process every few weeks/days she told me)...

    When we saw her, we just called out chloe (without my daughter around) and she just looked right at us...

    She;s a lovely girl, but shes not a leader defiantly a follower and a bit of a free spirit which i associate the name chloe to be with

    I recently named a tame Rainbow Lorikeet Hyacinth. I started out calling her "Bucket Mouth" and when I discovered she was a girl Hyacinth stuck. She is very opinionated and noisy indeed...

    My saluki was named Eugene by his breeder, after a dog show judge. But I'm not a fan of Eugene so he only gets it when he's in trouble. It very quickly became Genie when he came to live with us.

    We did report the incident to the pound, they told us bluntly that any dog not 100 per cent fit would be put down right away as they were full beyond capacity. Well no way were they going to get their hands on her after hearing that.

    She was a part of our family within minutes of picking her up. If the pound had taken her in we would have been there to get Chloe back asap. Nearly 15 years on and I'm still p@##$@ at their attitude.

    Pounds in those days were only holding areas for euthanasia. Animal welfare has moved forward in leaps and bounds since then thankfully!
