Born five years ago, she’s a dog of leisure these days. When we got her, my husband said, “I can’t be an artist and walk a little white dog. People will talk.” So he insisted on naming her after a brand of Scotch. But I added an old lady name, which I think belongs with the breed. That’s how Talisker “Talley” Beatrice Bergren was named. Aren’t you glad you know that?

What’s your dog’s name and how did you come up with it? Comment below.
