TTT 111720

 

Today's topic is animals you've named after a book character.

Over the years I've had many.

Growing up these were my families dogs:

1.  A Toy Fox Terrier we named Hector after the Trojan warrior in the Iliad.

2.  A half German Shepherd and Blue Heeler named Arwin after the elf queen from LOTR.


 
3.  A German Shepherd/Collie mix named Harvey, after the title character of the play Harvey.










4.  Another Toy Fox Terrier named Circe, from the Odyssey.

5.  A Toy Fox Terrier the mate to Circe, named Charley. From the movie adapted from Flowers for Algernon.


Recently: 



6. 
A black Toy Cocker Spaniel named Watson after Dr. Watson from Sherlock Holmes. 


And a Black Labrador named Lucy after the the cartoon character in Peanuts. 









The ones still alive:

7.  A beautiful red Beta fish named Scarlet after Scarlet O’Hara.



8. 
A German Shepherd named Smokey from the movie.




9. 
A Chihuahua named Bandit.





10. 
A sixteen year old white and orange Teddy Bear cat named Pippin from LOTR.







11. A Jack Russel terrier named Sammie. Named after Samantha Brady on Days of Our Lives. She's a really bossy lady.

Pippin is such a sweet name for a cat!

Verushka said...

Arwin is a fantastic choice!! And Sammie Brady made me smile! I know that character!!

Poinsettia said...

Hector and Arwen are great names! Here is my Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

Elza Reads said...

How Lovely! Thanks for sharing all your lovely pictures of your pets. My mom had a cat called Pippah, almost like Pippen.

Lucy is a beautiful name for a labby. Will keep that in mind!

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

Lydia said...

Oh, I loved seeing photos of all of your pets. You picked great names for them.

Thanks for stopping by.

Pippin is cute. Bandit is very, very accurate. And Scarlet is a great choice. Happy TTT!

P M Prescott said...

Thanks Jess, it's more because just like Pippin he's always getting into things and making a mess.

P M Prescott said...

Glad someone understood me without being vulgar, Verushka.

Quite a funny coincidence that your spaniel was Watson, a friend of mine also has a spaniel, but called Sherlock!

Elsa, Lucy is a good name for just about any pet.

P M Prescott said...

My heart soars like a hawk that you are pleased, Lydia.

P M Prescott said...

Lexlingua, you're right, he is very aptly named.

Savannah@ReadingBifrost said...

Of course you can't have Smokie without the Bandit!

P M Prescott said...

Savannah, you've got that right.

Debra Eliotseats said...

I love the name Pippin! I also am infatuated with Jack Russell terriers. I hear they're a handful, though.

Lindsey @ Lindsey Reads said...

So many fun names! I love Circe, Watson and Pippin :)

Deanna @ A Novel Glimpse said...

That's so cool that you had pets actually named after book characters! My dog is Winnie, but not after the Pooh.

Lisa @ Bookshelf Fantasies said...

Wow, so many beautiful dogs and cats in your life! I'm chuckling over Sammie. :) I was a Days fan pretty intensely for a few years. I love the LOTR names too!

P M Prescott said...

Debra, she is. Thanks for dropping by.

P M Prescott said...

Nice to know you liked them, Lindsay.

P M Prescott said...

Thanks for coming by, Kate.

P M Prescott said...

Glad you think they're cool, Deanna.

P M Prescott said...

Lisa, wife and I watched it for years and the name suits her.

Greg said...

Nice names. I like Arwin and Circe a lot. Names drawn from mythology are fun! :)

P M Prescott said...

Growing up it was our family tradition. Now we go with literary names. Thanks for coming by, Greg.

P M Prescott said...

Thanks Leah for your kind words.

Cherry @ Cherry Actually Reads said...

OMG - would definitely love to name a pet after Greek mythology characters. Circe is such a lovely name for a pet.

Yes it is, Cherry. Thanks for coming by.
