Renaming Your Rescue Dog

"There are few things in life as rewarding as giving a homeless animal a second chance at life. Some have never had a proper home, many have never had a good home and some have lost their home because of their owner's life circumstances, often the death of the owner or the birth of a child who is dangerous allergic to pets.

One question that often arises is whether or not to give your new dog a new name."

This seldom-broached topic is  one that I've wanted to bring  to public attention for awhile. Thanks to Gina Misiroglu of The Red Room a marriage was again made between writer and PawNation. Hopefully, a lot more rescue and shelter dogs will be able to get a brand-new start in a new "forever home" with a brand-new name full of wonderful new associations.

I'm always grateful to Red Room for so many reasons. This is my "home away from home" on the internet, the place where a writer/author can dwell in peace with colleagues.  Thanks always to Ivory Madison for creating this virtual home and to Huntington Sharp for always being so helpful.  Have I mentioned lately how much I love my Red Room "family?"
