The number one question I get asked when talking to people about my new family member is “Why Mr Tuna?”
My response is always the same – “Why not?”
Names are seen (as far as humans are concerned) as being a vital part of our identity. We embrace our names, our friends create more intimate versions to call us by, and those who have unfortunate ones even have the option of changing them.
As far as I’m concerned, I’m not the kind of person who could ever name a dog something like “Sasha” or “Fido” or even “Buddy”.
The “Mr” is a tribute to my darling Mr Woofy – I thought that this would be a nice way to keep his memory alive with the new puppy.
And as for “Tuna”?
Feel free to guess
