You decide what to name my doggie!

These are the only two options.

The fate of this canine hangs in the balance.

Woo! I hope the puppy is a good match for your Chris! I vote Taco Sauce all the way, he just has that Taco Sauce look in his eyes!
I'm glad you adopted him, I've been sort of wanting a dog myself, because I've met sooo many awesome, sweet, calm puppers between volunteering at the animal shelter, and people bringing their pups into my dog-friendly work place. It's an outdoor gear store, so almost everyone who works there is outdoorsy, and has a cool doggie.

I have thought seriously about (when I'm older and have a place with a yard) adopting a greyhound/other racing type dog because the dog racing industry just tosses any dog that's not a good racer onto the street. As a result, and lot of them need homes. Plus the long skinny racer types seem to be way calmer than your average spaniel or what-have-you.

My initial vote was for Zarkon, since it reminded me of Zarquon from Adams's H2G2 books. Looking into that kind face, though, I'm thinking Taco Sauce might be the right direction.

He has the ears of a Zarkon and the face of a Taco Sauce.

If you name him Taco Sauce, you can call him T.S. for short, and then you can have Fun With Acronyms!

Too Smooth
Ted Stevens
Try Singing
Twelve Sausages
Talk Softly
etc.

...what? T.S. stands for [i]what?[/] Nevermind.

see i would say he has the eyes of Taco Sauce and the nose/muzzle of Zarkon.
but i always go with the eyes
an i would be amused to hear someone calling for a taco.

I hate you Chris....I always wanted a german shepherd but my mother doesn't want a dog in the house.


But you should name him Zarkon of Taco Sauce, or Zarkon dominator of Taco Sauce

I went with Mr. Zarkon. For some reason I think all dog names are funnier with a Mr. in front of them. Especially if the dog is female.

This is a win-win situation. You can always save the other name for your first born child!

If his name can't be OOP OOP  Smiley Smiley, then I'm pretty sure I also have to go with Taco Sauce. Why, you may ask? So that he can be the mascot of Death Taco, of course!!! http://www.chrisyates.net/deathtaco.html



He is absolutely precious, Chris. Sometimes here at school they have Therapy Dogs, where owners bring in their puppies to play with the college students. There is a husky with two different colored eyes, a beagle who always wears incredibly dapper bandanas, and a big white fluffy thing with his tongue perpetually lolling out, among others. It is always so exciting when it is a Therapy Dog day! Mayhaps your doggie being in your comic can make him a sort of Therapy Dog too! I can have a Repro Therapy Dog. Huzzah!

I had to vote for Taco Sauce because that dog is clearly a Taco Sauce. You could compromise. Zarkon Sauce?
