Everybody, say hello to Gunner!!
We've had him for almost a week and he already plays soccer. Sorta. He boxes at the soccer ball and barks at it. He's a ton of work right now but he'll be a great dog once he's grown (he's already mostly house trained and knows what 'NO' means ... though he clearly ignores it sometimes).
We spent hours trying to come up with a name. We went through literally hundreds of names from traditional to goofy. We tried to come up with a name about the way he looks, about the way he acts. About his birthday (Feb 14th). Nothing quite clicked. I told my wife that when we come up with the right name, it will just feel right.
We were all quiet for about 10 minutes and my wife said "Gunnar." I said, "That's it!."
It is perfect because he's a German dog (Gunnar is a German name) and I just spelled it like the Arsenal nick.
Anyway, thought I'd share!
