52 Weeks of Happiness - Week 30

Meet Butch.

He's Ethan's new pet.
We met Butch two weeks ago,
and he was half the size he is today.

He's part boxer and part ridgeback.

Now you're probably thinking,
Butch is not a very original name.
let me tell you,
there is a story.
(Isn't there always?)

When we decided to adopt Butch,
we knew we needed a name.
I thought I could help,
so I offered Wrath 
as a name.
It was denied by Scott and Ethan.
But I did not give up.
I also suggested
Rhage, Vishous, and Tohrment.
(BDB fans - see a trend?)

Scott caught on
to the fact I was suggesting
Brotherhood names,
so refused them all.
I never got a chance to offer up
Blay or Quinn.
But then,
I remembered
Butch, the Destroyer.
Leaving out the Destroyer part,
I suggested Butch.

It was only later
that Scott realised that
Butch was also a Brother.
But by then,
Ethan was already telling people
his new puppy is named 

Happiness is a new puppy.
