What's in a Name??

After much much discussion our family finally agreed on a name for our new puppy. She is a Havanese (weighs in at 3.16lbs and will get to about 12 -15 lbs) We decided to call her Harley Quinn or just plain Harley for short ! No, I am not into motorcycles nor do I read romance novels . So here is the significance behind her name...... The dog has a constant grin (it is really a line of black fur that makes her look like she is smiling) and reminds us of the Joker from Batman. Anyways when she is laying on her back her ears go up her eyes get goofy and her Joker grin is very prominent. Since she is a female we couldn't name her Joker. Did you know that the Joker has a girlfriend in the comic series/animated series? Neither did I, her name is Harley Quinn. So here is a photo of the Joker's girlfriend Harley Quinn and our puppy. Hence the name for our new puppy Harley! I know I am strange but It is the creative part of me that is always present even when choosing a name for our pooch!
