Bodie and Max
Owner of an 8 year cat, Max, that I have had since he could curl up easliy in my hand. I have had Bodie (Boxer) since Sunday who is a 1 yr old Fawn male.
Max was easy, went to the shelter and took him home. I was watching TV and it was the ending of the movie Down and Out in Beverly Hills, awesome movie. As the credits were rolling it showed the dog was played by Max The Dog, so I went with it. He seems to like the name and talks back whenever he hears it used.
Bodie was more of an issue, he is from a rescue leage that had no clue what his name was and the one they used my girlfriend and I were not overly fond of. I used the web to look up a million names and decide on something the gf and I could agree to. This was not easy, I liked names like Rocky, Buster, Bogart, etc.. My gf was much more of the artsy type Aristotle, Plato, Caesar....
I sat down and thought about what I like and what she liked, that did not work out well for coming up with names. I changed my thought process and decided to think of her and mold myself into things we could both agree to. She is from CA and loves to surf. I am a movie nut so I thought of surfing movies that I liked...Point Break.. Keanu Reeves, Patrick Swayze... Bodie was Swayze's character in the movie and was an easy name to agree on.
Luckily the names suits the pooch very well, he is wild yet focused at the same time, smiliar to the character Bodie in Point Break.
Ok, that was more typing that I planned to do, and I am sure more reading than you expected as well...
