What's in a name?

Póg's PonderingsPosted by Trish Anderson Mon, April 18, 2011 18:40:55

Some of you may be wondering what my name means so I'll try to explain as best I can but do bear in mind that I am still only a puppy so please be patient.

Firstly my name is Irish which is only right and proper for an Irish Terrier, well I think so anyway.

The name Póg is an abbreviation. The 'P' comes from 'Peadar' which means 'Peter' in Irish and 'óg' means 'little' or 'junior' but the really cool thing is that when you join them together you get Póg (pronounced pogue) which means 'kiss'. I reckon Trish must have know that I'd grow up to be a handsome boy and that just about everyone I'd meet would want to cover me in kisses. Spooky!

Some people think I'm named after the band 'The Pogues' but really - I have MUCH nicer teeth than that Shane McGowan! It's true! Even the vet's receptionist has admired my white teeth!

I also share my name with a very special boy named Póg who lives in Co. Galway in Ireland and I hope to meet him one day soon.

The photos are of me when I was just 3 months old. Cute huh?
