My wife (I swear she was not trying to make a joke) said, " Oh look, a Jack Daniels terrier." I wish now that I had take a picture of him.

To keep this on topic: Once I grew up and stopped naming stuffed animals, I do not name inanimate objects. In fact, even though I grew up very involved in boats and spent 5 years in the Navy, I did not fall for the brain washing. A boat or a ship (or a trailer) is an it not a she.

Just Dog... You want maybe the world believe your dog fair and impartial, beholden to none against enemies domestic and foreign, with liberty and justice for all? That's an awesome Dog!

I'm with w7ts on christening inanimate objects unless required legally - though in my case its probably because I'm not clever enough to pull it off...

You may just surprise yourself one day!
Looks like we will need to rename our Airstream now. When we first got her and were on our first shopping sprees, Becky would ask "where are we going to put that". My response was "well, on the boat of course..." (yes, we are also boaters with a J/24 and a Coronado 15 that we actively race). So we just started referring to our AS as "The Boat". So now what should we call her... Hmmmm.

Well, since we take our dog Heidi on all of our trips, each time she wakes up she is in a new and exotic land... and the AS does seem larger on the inside than on the outside... Guess we will start referring to her as the "TARDIS".

That's funny you'd say this...we had company over the other day and they ask us our Safari's name...

First, I digress, we name everything, that includes a doz chickens , 9 hawks in the propagation project, 3 dogs, a cat, a wild turkey turned tame,and there is the occasional garter snake that shows up in our garden and the neighborhood skunk.

So then, when we first went and looked at our so to be bought Safari, our grandkids wanted to know what it looked like... The wife quipped' Well it's silver and kind of looks like an Armadillo. That's what our our five year old granddaughter dubbed it... "The Silva-dilla" Dilly for short.

We are bad about naming things, we even named all four of our children!!!! In fact most of them have been called a lot of names over the years, but that's another story!!

Give it time, I'm sure it will name itself after some great adventure, mishap, etc.

Isn't it bad luck if you don't name your Airstream? Kinda like the bad luck from not naming a gnome when you get one. I started out calling mine the Silver Palace now it's . . .

The Silver Palace AKA "The Trailer Park Lounge"

Actually I think it is kind of arrogant to go around assigning names to things that may well already have a perfectly good name that they prefer.

I figure if our trailer wants us to know its name it will tell us.

In the meantime, I figure if I take care of it, it will take care of me.
