Just collected our border collie puppy and hope to think of a suitable name for him...hopefully easier as we assess his personality.
That said, a French acquaintance has just told us that the French have an alphabetic / year requirement for dog names; and for 2012 it must start with "H". Neither the vet (who wants us to let him know the name we choose) or the vendor told us of this, so can we assume this requirement is purely for the formal names of "LOF", which we assume is French Kennel Club/pedigree, dogs?
Slightly worried as we do know the vendor's daughter called this puppy "Honda". He is clearly border collie, & we've seen the parents, both clearly border collie so possibly he is "pure race", but neither parent is "LOF".
So; do we need to think hard about a name beginning with "H" or are we OK to pick any name?
