Before I got my first cat I daydreamed about getting him and calling him Rat. He looked like a drowned rat when he was born. But when I got him several months later it didn't really fit him anymore.

This Is My Dog Shilo. I Spell Shilo Without The "H" At The End Because I Named Him After The Neil Diamond Song. In The Song Shilo Is Neil's Imaginary Friend Who Comes To Him When He Is Lonely. We Got Shilo After My Last Dog Samba, Also A Border Collie, Died. Samba Was The Love Of My Life And Even Though It Is 7 Years Since He Passed I Still Miss Him. Shilo Came Into My Life And Helped Me Live Through The Loss And Loneliness Of Losing Samba Just Like Neill Diamond's Imaginary Friend Came To Him In The Song. Thankfully There's Nothing Imaginary About Shilo! He's A Beautiful, Funny, Smart, Loving And Loyal Dog Who Is My Best Friend. I Love Him So Much.

A friend said she looked like a little moon and baptized her Luna. Her Cougar nickname explains itself. Pommette is a twin for her mom Billy (R.I.P) so a play on the idiom "The apple falls near the tree".
