Happy Valentime's Day!

SO I named my first dog Valentine, and would then know the joys of year-round mispronunciation of said poochie's name. Some people would ask if she was a Valentine present.

Uh, no. Didn't get her on ValentiMe's day, either. I liked the name, and Jack Russells are stealthy when they are pups, you can't for the life of you believe they'd ever turn into one of those wild Jack Russell adult monsters, so, if you're a dim bulb, you give them a sickeningly sweet name such as Valentine or Praline, when something like Popcorn or Mandible would be more apropos.

Anyhoo, nothing says Valentine's Day like this 1956 classic from Screamin' Jay Hawkins.

I always thought Hannibal or Lecter would be a good name for a JRT :-)

Buck - you too!

LabRat - Next time, it's totally "Mandible"

Old INFO - I think you're spot-on. Also, Genghis. Wiener dog could've been, Vlad, come to that.

Love Genghis for a JRT. Had a teddy bear called Taras Bulba as a kid...Thud's influence!!!
