        1. Ginger was a chow collie and had a little snippy side – the chow in her – but did better when she was the only dog – in 1990s our first dogs – we had ginger and Maryann (black lab) and went with males after that

          1. The dynamics between dogs change so much when there is more than one in the household. I had an only dog – I never knew there was such a preferred thing until I had her – but when she got old and became deaf and it was harder for her to see, the new dog helped her. How was Ginger when she was older?

            1. Ginger was actually not that bad at all – just a little snippy once in a while to the young black lab but we had ginger seven years and was perfect with two small children and lots of your group kids coming and going (at that time) and she as our only dog for a year and was also good – so I hope I did not make her sound horrible – was only a .2 out of 10 with a crabby side and then that is comparing it to the loving lab breed! Lol

        1. Spicy Beans from the Chinese restaurant, Donna I assume that Chinese restaurants in your part of the world have a vastly different cuisine to Aussie Chinese restaurants. Our Chinese restaurants or more realistically, takeaway food places, have dishes like Stir fry vegetables with meat and Spring rolls. Not authentically Chinese, although there are some with Yum Cha dishes.


          1. Since living in China for fourteen years, I am particular about my Chinese food. 😀 Those lovely beans were a staple part of our diet…and it’s hard to find authentic ones here. The restaurant that we ordered from yesterday is very authentic Chinese, with the menu written in Mandarin, and dishes that we have only ever seen in China. We were introduced to it by another couple we knew when in China. We are soooo glad to have found it. We are having the leftovers tonight…and I already cannot wait!

              1. Great question! I hadn’t heard the word ‘Yum Cha’ until an Australian friend who I met in Beijing mentioned it. Both of us spent heaps of Sunday afternoons looking for great Dim Sum (preferably on the carts) in Beijing. It was very difficult to find there. Hong Kong, Macau and Guangdong on the other hand, always had great Dim Sum on the carts so that was always my first stop whenever I was visiting any of those places. We do have some good Dim Sum places in Victoria and Vancouver but sadly, my husband is not a fan. I definitely need to find a new Dim Sum/Yum Cha buddy out this way! 😀

              2. It must be another Australian Chinglish variant! Food like art can evolve in isolation from the origins, I guess. I hope you find another Dim Sum buddy. I do miss the wonderful flavours that one can experience when travelling. So different to what we can access at home. I especially miss Norwegian and Polish food! And Italian Gelato too!

      1. Wegmans is a grocery store that is sorta upscale and sorta value – hard to explain but they have amazing customer service and the newer stores are ginormous and sometimes too much – I happened to grow up going to one of their few locations in upstate New York (my mother gave us a monthly amount and I’d save coupons from the Sunday news and get stupid stuff because they had triple coupon day and then I’d get items for a quarter – lol – )
        They took a long time to trickle down the east coast of the US and there was some agreement that kept them out of VA – but when ukrops (an upscale grocery chain in our area) closed or sold their stores – it opened the market for wegmans and others
        The one in our area is also not close enough to go all
        The time but some of they carry the “Veritas farms” hand sanitizer I love and a few other goodies
        And they might have some of the absolute best customer service out of any grocery store chain around!

      1. And craft supplies. Kissel is a dessert from Eastern/Northern/Central Europe made from potato starch and fruit juice concentrate. I got a packet from a friend to try and found it in the cupboard recently. Nice warm afternoon snack.

    1. Hi Tanja, or should I say, Lady Munchkin. Such a cute royal name. Thanks for alerting me. When I wrote the post, I had a photo of Christiansborg Castle in Copenhagen and replaced it with the castle in Sirmione, but clearly the caption did not update in the editor. Great pickup and well spotted. I will update.
      I assume Lady Munchkin that you have been to both locations?


        1. Munchkin is a cute name especially suited to a cat.
          Copenhagen should be on your to do list, but I am terribly biased! The day I was in Sirmione was so very hot, and that is saying something, given that I live in Australia. I do wonder what it is like in winter? What time of year were your visits?


  1. Lady Princess, Walter, Turbo Danny, Zina Cherry of Norco. Lol that was hilarious fun. I couldn’t decide which pet & thought I’d better stop at Zina as I have poultry with names as well. I’m so gonna ask my friends to do this. Awesome smile.

    1. Oh that is very distinguished Laurie, I mean, Lady Pear of Target (pronounced in the French way). Lady Pear sounds like a good character name for a novel! The mind boggles with visual imagery!

        1. I think we all used that with sarcasm, Alejandro. We have Tar jae stores here too. Several years ago, they were the highest selling store for women’s apparel in Australia. They had a good range and moderately priced. Then they got greedy and upped the price for everything. You could pay a similar price for nicer things in Target as you would in a higher end department store and sales dropped off. Now they are closing a whole lot of stores and that decision was made prior to Covid hitting our shores.


  2. Wow. It sounds like a very aristocratic lineage of pet names, @workinginacres (Linda). Especially with Princess sqeezed in there. What fun to add them all in. Although I am unsure of adding in the chooks!! Rofl…

  3. Lord Wolfgang Nachos of Walmart? Um…I don’t think so. My first name is George, which I believe has some regal history. On my paternal grandmother’s side, Queen Isabella of Spain was an ancestor. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s some regal ancestry on the German side of me or even some ancient Aztec royalty on either side.

    I descend from some fine stock in both Europe and North America. It may not readily manifest if you know me, but it’s all there!

    1. Knowing a bit about Wolfgang, (from what you have told me), I would tend to agree with you, Alejandro.
      Although it does reflect on your Germanic heritage – maybe just not the Walmart part! Lol. Perhaps if you had last eaten a Spanish dish it might have worked? It is fun for a laugh and light distraction anyhow. How are things going over there? I heard some parts of Texas had some snow?

      1. If I could avoid shopping at Walmart, I would. But my present financial state won’t allow it. A slave to retail? Sadly, yes. Texas always gets some snow during winter; particularly in the northwestern part of the state, which is at a slightly higher elevation.

        1. Ah I see. I wonder why it made the news here. I will have to ask my son as he is the one who commented on it. He has many internet friends so I suppose it was a comment on a forum or suchlike.


            1. I like most succulents. My father was an avid grower of them. I have an aloe vera plant a friend gave me a few years ago. As for BEING a succulent, I definitely fit the criteria on that! Now before this gets any more erotic, reach out to me on my own blog and we can trade stories about our extraordinary succulence.

      1. I come from the land of the Scots. Pleasure to meet you too!

        (All jokes aside though, very nice post. Good for a little laugh haha. Had trouble choosing which of my pets to name myself after though!)


        1. Thanks so much, IanSlav. Comments are a bit part of blogging I think and something that can make folks laugh is even better. I like that you gave your royal name so much thought. I used my dog’s pedigree name!

      1. Oh in taking my pick, I’ll take Lady No-Pet Jollof of Nordstrom. Will take the pleasure in explaining Jollof to every curious mind, and of course, you can find me at Nordstrom (or its Rack) window-shopping! 😊

          1. Never! As a child, I watched my brother fiercely bitten by a dog – we thought he wouldn’t survive it. Being scared of dogs since.
            Didn’t know that Nordstrom is a Swedish name – now I do. Thanks

            Let’s set a shopping spree day. I’m sure the store would love us for it! 😍 Enjoyed reading all the royal names – very creative.

            1. My mother told me, when she was about 6 years old and still living in México City, she and her older sister saw a Doberman attack a man and almost rip him to shreds. At that point, they developed an intense phobia of dogs, especially large dogs. Ironically, their family had a golden retriever at the same time. I even have a picture of my mother with that dog.

              But, after my parents and I moved into a new house in 1972, they promised to get me a dog; a German shepherd in particular. My mother was willing to set aside her fears for my sake. We got the new puppy in June 1973 and named him Joshua (Josh). And he took a particular liking to my mother. He got very big very quickly, ultimately reaching about 100 lbs. (45 km). While he loved my mother, he also bent to her ever whim. She always joked, if he only knew that all he’d have to do was bark at her, she’d pass out.

              A couple who lived next door to us (mid-1970s) had a large collie-mix who was pretty docile. Then they got – of all dogs – a Doberman. He eventually grew to the size of what looked like a colt and – as fate would have it – took a liking to my mother. Every time we visited them, that dog would hover around her. He was also one of those dogs who wouldn’t leave you alone the moment you petted him. LOL!

              I understand, though, why you have a canine phobia. But trust me on this one: in general, dogs are only as aggressive as their owners allow. The miniature schnauzer I had until 2016 thought he was the size of that German shepherd! But that seems to be a common personality trait among smaller canines.

              1. “She always joked, if he only knew that all he’d have to do was bark at her, she’d pass out.” Lol that’s how I am. Can stand the small dogs but sometimes those get unnecessarily aggressive sometimes too. My kids, when they were younger, wanted one so bad. I told then that I couldn’t take care of them as well as have to worry about their dog especially when we’re out of town. One of them had one in college and I was okay with it as long as it doesn’t bark at me or get too friendly!
                Thanks for sharing.

              2. Ironically, my aunt (who had witnessed that Doberman attack) got an Italian greyhound sometime in the early 1970s. That dog had a loud bark that would echo throughout the house and an equally loud, even stranger growl; it sounded like he was yodeling. My father joked it was because he was Italian; he would imitate the growl almost perfectly, which drove that dog insane!

                My schnauzer had a tremendously vociferous bark that made him sound like a gigantic canine. It would also make my mother’s head hurt. And she’d tell him that! Of course, he would just respond with that doe-eyed puppy-dog look, so she couldn’t be mad at him.

            2. They have been extremely creative names, thinktalk. The attack on your brother sounds devastating. My own two dogs were attacked by another dog some years back. It left me and my dogs terrified of that breed of dog forever.
