My boss and I each adopted dogs in the past week. Each of us changed their names. My process was simple. My son and I came up with a few names and finally agreed on Marley.

My boss was a bit more strategic. His wife didn't want a third dog in the house. However, Brian was deadest on adopting. So he named his new pal Buffy. Buffy just happens to be the name of his wife's best friend! Now if she gets upset and yells at the dog...she's screaming her best friends name. It's a great story.
