How In Da World I Got My Name

This will NOT center...dagblamit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess ya’ll be wanting to knows how I becames Puddles Duddles Rainwater, huh? Well let me begin..

Once upon a time, roughly two years ago…remembers, it be’s my birfday day month…now where was I? Oh yes, once upon a time, I was but a mere drop of, dat ain’t it.

Let’s try dis, when I was just a wee little puppy and not potty trained…oh no, dat not it eithers.

Dis was me on da night I came home...ya'll do a collective Ooooh and Awwwwe.

Ya'll sees how sweet and innocent I was

Okays, I gots it now.
Ummmm, to tell you da truths, My Girl totally made my name up, it came from absolutely no wheres and has no fantastical story behind it. Hers had da name Puddles picked out before hers had even met me. Howevers, mum tried and tried to gets da Girl NOT to name me Puddles, hers tried reals hard to persuade da Girl to name me, wait fur it….MARIE! Yea tell me bouts it, Corny.
I told da Girl, “Don’t you dares name me Marie, does I look like a Marie”. Why Marie you be asking? Well mum thoughts her would haves dis cool science thing going, you know cuz Albert was named afters Albert Einstein. Well in mum’s head it was cool but in reality it was just ridiculous. Oh Marie, as in Marie Curry. Now you see how stoopid dat be. All I can say is thank goodness My Girl didn’t gives in to da idea. I mean, I just couldn’t imagine my furiends saying, “Hey Marie is overs there dancing on da table.” or “ Marie be gone on a beer run’. See, it just haves dat ring like Puddles has.. Duddles came along shortly afters only cuz it rhymed. Okays, Rainwater came about cuz of da whole Puddles part. Gosh, you gotta loves da brain workings of a small child…nothing makes sense but yet it does.

Puddles suits you. I am glad you are not Marie. So not a wiener dog name, yuh.


Sam said...

I think Puddles is a great name!


Minna Krebs said...

Dear PDD,

We were reading along all nice and stuff, enjoying the story of your name.......and then we gots to MARIE ! My moms let out a HEEHAW that could have waked the dead, she be laughing so hard she had to take a break while I finish this comment.

She said she not sure why this 'tickles' her so much...cept in her whole life (and that be a long time) she ain't EVER heard of a dog named MARIE!

I betters go check on her...she still gots tears running out da eyes

Mr. Pip said...

Puddles works for you - your girl is very smart! I think sometimes kids "get us" more than adults!

Your pal, Pip

P.S.: how are you feeling today after last night's pawty?

Ruby and Penny said...

We love the your name, Puddles Duddles Rainwate.
Happy Independence Day from your relations in Canada.
Love Ruby & Penny

Maggie Mae said...

Puddles Duddles Rainwater works for you....Marie, not so much. :)

Happy July 4th!

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

Sam and Pippen said...

Yeah... looking at your baby picture we can see how your mom would want to name you Marie... a nice sweet innocent sounding name... so totally not you! AND I don't think you can really say Marie in an exasperated way like you can with Puddles...

Your girl is way smart!

Sam and Pippen

JD and Max said...

Hi Puddles - a rose by any other name....and all that! We're not sure what that quote means really but we DO know that Puddles really suits you and we can't imagine you as a Marie. MARIE??!! No - your girl is wise indeed and chose you a great name! When Pippa comes to live with us we think we're gonna re-name her Pippa-Puddles, he he he! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Madi and Mom said...

Oh Puddles kudos to your Girl for sticking to her guns... you are no Marie we are sure of that.
Mom said, our Doxie Toto, was also named by my human sister when she was 3. Seems my sister was and still is (35 years later) a big big fan of Wizard of Oz. Mom tried to tell her that Toto in the movie was a not a Doxie but she did not care. Mom was convined no matter what bred of dog or how big it was it would be Toto.
Happy Fourth and give your girl a lick from us,
Madi and Mom

I'm getting around to the name game bloggies a little late this morning. What a night at the pawty? At one point I think I was dancing with a palm tree!

I have to admit, I did BOL at Marie. I think your girl was right on the mark with Puddles. Knowing you now, I'd say it's too formal for you! Though my two leggers would have been on your mom's side. They love the theme names!

Did Whitney come to you with her name?

road-dog-tales said...

That is the cutest ever puppy pic and Puddles totally suits you!

houndstooth said...

You definitely do not look like a Marie to me! LMTO! I think you have one of the best names ever, and it does suit you perfectly.

I see that it really is all about you this month, since you're not telling how Albert and Whitney got their names. Tee hee!

I hope that you never have to enter the witness protection program and change that fabulous name of yours! Nothing else would suit you!


Lola said...

Out of the mouths of babes as they say. Puddles is just the right name for you. I'm so glad that your girl prevailed.

wags, Lola

Puddles is a good name and it really suits you fine!! Marie going on a beer way. Puddles doing it...,everyone is okay with it!! The picture of you as a puppy did get a big awwwwww out loud!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Yoda_the_Dog said...

Mom says she do understand the reluctance of your mom to embrace the Puddles idea. Same thing with my mom and the Chewbacca thing. She could picture Chewie chewing up the house and your mom probably was thinking about Puddles puddling all over. I do think Marie was all wrong though too and your girl seemed to know just the right thing to call you!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Puddles be woo -

And so NOT Marie!

Happy FoURth of WOO-ly!


the booker man said...

JackDaddy said...

I don't know. I think Marie would have been a good name. You could have been Rose Marie and then everyone would have thought you were on the tv show!

Oh Puddles, my dear, no way no how, could you ever be a Marie:) We don't have to ask because we know what a great time you are having at the big pawty in Honorooroo - exactly how much do you remember?

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Frankie Furter said...

Well Puddles you did a grrrreat job on YOUR NameGame story. I saw that someone noticed that Albert and Whitney's stories are.. MISSING. I'm thinking they DELETED them... No doubt a bit embarrassed to be in the same blog with someone who.. danced on a table/up a palm tree, and all.
They will prolly spend the rest of their lives with a Kibble bag over their heads. BaWaaaaah HaROOOOOO

I do think that Puddles is the name you were destined to have.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Puddles!
You are so right. Marie does not sound like you!
Happy Independence Day!
Kisses and hugs

Martha and Bailey said...

Yes, Puddles is the only name for you - now way could you have been a Marie!
We have to say it- you were the sweetest little puppy that we ever did see!
But then you know that - right!
love you lots

Yo, Marie. Da girl, ours not yours, wanted to name me, Chupa Cabra after the mexican beast, and Frankie, Pebbles. Mom vetoed both. You know the rest. Now, would your mom like us to name our first born kitten Marie or Puddles? (remember, it's a calico BOL)
