Appropriately named


As you all know, our new, sweetie pie of a dog is named Dewey. This came after narrowing down all the options that Mike, the kids and I had. Dewey is after one of Brooke's favorite places to eat, Deweys pizza. We all thought it was the cutest name, and therefore the winner! Well, today, Mike and the kids were out and about, since I had to work nights at the hospital last night, and was sleeping. They decided to take Dewey shopping with them at a local pet store. While there, they discovered they were giving nail trims with buffing for $5.00. Mike decided to have this done, as Dewey has never had his nails trimmed before. (My parents recently bought us a Pedipaw, nail groomer, but it is a gradual process when you first use it, as you have to introduce it a few times without doing anything and offering a treat, then eventually do only 1 nail, then 1 paw, etc). ANYWAY..........He needed all his nails done now. Well, the ladies at the pet store thought Dewey was the cutest thing - can't argue with them:) - they also said he is a very RARE dog. WHY?? you ask??!! He has a DEW claw on his BACK paws. Which is very uncommon??? All dogs have them on their front paws, to help hold things, but NOT on there back. Those of you out there can check out your dogs back paws and let me know if this is, indeed, true or not! So long story, short.....Dewey turns out to be a great choice for his name, because of his unique dew claws on his back paws. Who'd a thunk it!!

I have never heard of a dog having dew claws on his back feet. Killian only has them on his front so I believe that lady was correct.

I thought I felt those DEW claws when he was trying to climb up on my head on Tuesday while sitting on the couch with him! :) Do the initials DEW stand for some longer, canine term?? I wonder how rare is rare?? He's a keeper!

The picture cracks me up! Maybe my family could meet yours at Dewey's for dinner some night. We've never been to the one at Clayton and Clarkson, but I've been wanting to give it a try! What do you think?
