Yesterday I was at the University and we had to practise with some dogs. Of course, the University has its own dogs that are being used as 'study objects'. There are Greyhounds, retrievers, Beagles etc. But especially a lot of Beagles.. I'm always a little bit insensitive towards them. They are 'just dogs'.. 'Study objects'.. Sweet, but that's it. You can't get attached right? Or feel sorry for them..
Well.. yesterday there was a new beagle. A very sweet young girl, with a very cute puppy face. It was her first time on the 'Vet's table', so she was a bit nervous. But she was sooo sweet.. I asked the vet who was helping us how old this cute girl was.. His answer was.. "Uh.. number 6767.. Don't know.. I think she's about 2 yrs old" And I was like: number 6767?! Why hasn't she got a name? He thought "6767" was quite a nice name and that you can't name them all.. Pfffff.. I told him that was just stupid! All the retrievers have names.. and all the horses have a name too.. Why not the beagles?
I decided to give her a name myself: Lily. I think she was pretty happy with her new name I also took her for a nice long walk. She was wagging her tail all the way.. She stole my heart.. after our walk I asked the vet if I could steal her.. gg.. he told me I should try that.. Don't think I'm going to do that, but I'm definitely going to pick her up for a walk when I have some free time. And mabye buy an ID tag with her new name on it
