  1. Our cat is named KiKi, short for kitty kitty. How can you not believe that is an original great cat name.

  2. Our dog is Riley, which usually shows up as one of the most common dog’s names–the rescue agency had given him that name and he was already answering to it, so we couldn’t imagine taking it away–he had so little when we got him. So he has kept it and now has his self confidence back. We are so glad that we adopted and bless the lady who runs the agency for bailing him out of the Canton, Ohio, dog pound.

    But I am glad that at least Riley wasn’t one of the most common for 2011!
