Thank You to Sue, On Behalf of My Little Brother

We have bark a big thank you to Sue at Dogs-N-More and also the Portuguese Water Dog Blog for devoting a whole post to welcoming Brooklyn. That was so very nice of her and we can't thank her enough. That is why we love the pet blogiverse. It's the friendliest place ever
Say "Thank you to the nice lady, little brother.
. Brooklyn will probably  be the dog formerly known as Brooklyn shortly. It turns out the whole family agrees with me, that while Brooklyn is a pretty good name in general, it doesn't suit the kid. He's not at all cool. Or tough. Or anything you might associate with a name like "Brooklyn". In fact, he's kind of nerdy, in a very nice way. We agreed it might be best to keep part of his original name, so we're strongly leaning toward "Brookstr", leaving off the "e" to be all Web 2.0 about it, like Flickr and Tumblr and whatnot. We have to get used to it ourselves, after calling him Brooklyn for a week.


  1. I like Brookstr! Very hip! And yeah, I agree about the blogiverse - it is one of the most supportive, least judgmental communities I have ever been part of - pretty great!!! Sure, glad I started blogging and met all of you!

    Your pal, Pip

  2. Awww...what very nice furends to welcome your little brudder in such a nice way! I likes the name Brookstr very much. But I'm still holding out for "Lou." Or maybe "Mayzie." Boys can be named Mayzie, can't they? Or - ooo! - how abouts Brookszie?

    Wiggles & Wags,

  3. You could call him Bridge, and then leave Brooklyn as his first name! :P I don't think it matters what you call him, as long as you call him to dinner! I do think Brookstr is rather a cool name, too! I suppose Lola 2.0 is out!


  4. Your friends were so kind welcoming Brooklin that way! I agree, pet blogiverse is wonderful!
    I like Brooskstr name.

  5. How very much nice of your furends to Welcome Brooklyn... I like Brookstr.. or even Brooks.

  6. I like the sounds like it's an easier name to call out. Isn't it great how welcoming everyone is?

  7. Just dropping in to say woof! Brookstr sounds really cool :-)

  8. "Brookstr" We like that name better .. And you are right.. it does suit him better.


  9. Lola,

    That was so nice of Sue, she is a good furiend indeed to many of us. :) Brookstr is a cool name!

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  10. You're right. Blogland is a very furendly place. What a nice welcome for your little brother! Can't wait to hear what name you all settle on... I'm sure he'll love it!


  11. Lola....Brookstr is a good name for the little bro but really and truly you could call him anything he would still be your very lucky and appreciative to be a part of your family.
    Hugs and Meows,

  12. We like Brookstr.
    Love Ruby & Penny

  13. Come Brookstr!
    Sit Brookstr!
    Watch Brookstr!
    Charge Brookstr!

    Okay, that's a good name, sounds right too... pass the mock squirrel run with flying colors.

    Licks, hero

  14. Brookstr! I like it too!
    What does he think about it?
    Kisses and hugs

  15. miss lola,
    heehee! i like brookstr. if he's kinda nerdy, you could even call him brookstone (as in that nerdy gadget store)!
    the booker man

  16. My hat is off to you, Lola. I had no idea peis were so brilliant. You are so good at handling your Brooklyn that you're going to have to share your training tips with the rest of us. From the first day he arrived up to now, you're a wealth of information.
    Thank you also about the Mango post. I had no idea, I'm so busy these days.

  17. Yep, the pet blogiverse IS the friendliest place ever! :-)
    And Brookstr is great!


  18. Woof! Woof! That's GREAT!!! Love it Brookstr. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  19. Aren't you guys sweet? We wanted to introduce your new brother to lots of blogsters and we hope they'll come visit with you.

    We think the new name probably suits him. I think it's kind of nice that he's a little bit nerdy.

    Have a happy day, you two.

  20. He poses very nicely for the camera :) Dropping the e is a cute idea!

  21. Holy Congrats =
    My typist has been so bizzie, she didn't show me the BIG news that you have a brother. Must say I was happy to hear brother and not boyfriend....
    So so happy for you all.
