Frankie's 4th of July Name Game

My new furiend Frankie over at his blog Frankly Speaking suggested that efurybudy do a post for 4th of July about how they got their name. I just recently explained that it my post about My Family, but here is the story again:

Mom and dad are big Scifi fans and wanted to name me after a Star Wars character. Dad liked Chewbacca but mom thought naming a puppy Chewie was a bad mistake. So they decided on Yoda. This picture does show that my ears can do special things.


I also have some nicknames. Mom calls me Pumpkin and Pumpkin Pie all the time because I am the same color as pumpkin pie. At Christmas she also called me Gingerbread. Same reason, same color. They still call me Puppy and Sweet Puppy even though I am 2 now. There is only one nickname I do not like: Bad Dog.

Yoda,I am SURE that you never hear that "bad dawg" nickname very often. I'm kinda partial to the Pumpkin Pie thingy though. I LOVE the name YODA. It fits you.
