Great Dog Names: Pippin

by Heidi
(Cupertino, CA)

We were trying to come up with names for our new little rescue. When my daughter said "Pippin" our dog's head came up. We laughed and said "she likes it". But we wanted to be sure, so we continued throwing out names, and, sure enough, when my daughter repeated "Pippin" her head came up again! Our dog picked out her own name. I asked my daughter where the name came from. It had nothing to do with the apple, the play, nor the basketball player. It was a derivation of pipsqueak, because of her little size. That's our (true) story.
