TV SHOW! Well not entirely but that's where I first heard of the name, Micah.

Hoagy was named after the golden from Jimmy Buffett's book "Where's Joe Merchant?"
Maggie was short for Magnolia...a great southern name...she was born on a early Sunday morning when all our magnolia's were in bloom.

Now Mr Wilson & Rocky
Wilson real name before I rescued him was Woody...his foster mom changed his name to Wilson..cause every time she would look and talk to him..she thought of the movie that Tom Hanks was in the "Castaway" and the ball that he named Wilson
Rocky's name has not been changed...there are days that he is called "The Rockster"

Got Miley's name from the Disney show Hannah Montana (starring Miley Cyrus). My daughter is a big fan of the show and we watch every night. We were originally going to name her Hannah, but decided on Miley 'cause it was different.

Tucker's name came from him falling asleep as a pup as soon as anyone picked him up, mom said "Look, he's all tuckered out, thats so cute" therefore Tucker came about. To this day you can still find him napping around often

A quote from Trixie - Am thinking about bacon. Bacon is very good. I am good too, me, Trixie Koontz, dog. People call me "good dog, very good." Bacon is very good. But I am not bacon. Why not? Mysterious.

Ginny got her name because we intended having her speyed when she was old enough and hubby said she would be a virgin. Holly got hers because when i first saw her at 2 days old we were going on holiday the next day. People think she was born at christmas but she was actually born in june.

Ours are named after bodies of water. I have grown up and always lived closed to water so their AKC names are after Rivers, streams or lakes.

The boys were super little when we got Emmy. We were discussing names and one of them said 'Sara' which is my name. I said, 'oh that would be really confusing having two Sara's' then said how it would be like having two Aunt Monica's or two Aunt Emily's. (My sister's). As soon as I said Aunt Emily they both were like "NEMMY, NEMMY!" That's what they called my little sister who they still love to pieces. So we named her Emmy....actually Nemmy...lol

I had a few names in mind but I really liked Muffin, it sounds so cute.I do thinks she's the only Muffin in Belgium.
Emma, well, she's really my husband's dog so he had to pick the name. When I put her on my lap, I thought, Emma but didn't say anything.
We got home and all wrote names down. My husband took the lists, looked two minutes and said : ...Emma.
