Pets make you stupid

My good friend, former co-worker, and current client Beckley once told me that having a pet makes you stupid, which he thought explained what he called his cat (which contained, if I recall correctly, “Chairman Miau” and “Monkey”). edit – the neighbor’s cat was Chairman, Beckley’s cat is The Monkey. He documented the slow and horrible transformation of his cat’s name on his blog.

I am afraid he is completely correct. These are the names I have used for my wife’s dog:

  • Lucy
  • Lucy Loo (Lucy Liu?)
  • Lucy Doops
  • B. Doops

So we’re now to the point where we refer to the dog as B. Doops. It’s not even as if I know what the B stands for. That’s just what she’s called now. I may have mispelled it – it could be Bedoops or something. Who knows.

So be careful. If you get a pet, it will make you dumb.

Edit – Lucy Loob, Luby Doo, and Luby Doob probably gets us closer to “B. Doops”.
