Was there a specific reason you named your pet the name you chose?
Willow got her name because my oldest dd had one of those dog games for her DS and she named the puppy on it Willow and it looked just like a yellow lab and for weeks she would call this "dog" on her game and it just stuck in my head.. So when I saw the ad in the paper for free Yellow Lab pups, I knew we had already found what we wanted and the name was a done deal.
For Lilly, it was more premeditated. I knew I wanted a black lab and I knew her name was going to be Lilly. I spelled it that way because Willow has 2 'l's' and I'm so anal about that sort of thing. And also because lilies are my favorite flower.
