While vegging on the couch over the weekend, I caught a rerun of The Real Housewives of New York City. Just joining one of the families was a new ($1,800) West Highland White Terrier puppy named Aston. With some skepticism (and sarcasm), the Countess LuAnn de Lesseps and fam discuss the reasoning behind the name and mention adding another pup named Martin before picking up the car. Surely, a second dog (and Aston Martin) are not beyond a Count's budget, but hey, who knows?! While the son earnestly agrees with the dad's name, and I've heard of many different reasons for naming a pet, I couldn't help but wonder if the name of this pooch was entirely the boy's choice. After all, I named my first dog Joey after a boy I had a crush on in preschool. Now I'd love to hear the name of your first pet in the comments below!
