Why the names?

Have I ever mentioned who my boys are named after?

Alih is named after the famous boxer - Mohamed Ali. In order to be a little different an H was added to the end of the name. ;) Alih is a tough nut to crack in one way, just as well as he's a warm- and kind-hearted man in another. He's also a big jokster. Just like the great boxer! :)

James is named after 2 people. The lawless Jesse James (or the Monster Garage guy) and the smooth and dangerous James Bond - 007 with license to kill. :) The name suits James perfect considering he is as smooth & handsome as James Bond... while, at the same time, being wild and crazy like Jesse James. :)

My beloved Carlos, who's no longer with us, was named after the King of Spain - Juan Carlos. Why? I have always loved Spain and my family used to go there during my upbringing. The name was perfect for him since he was always well-behaved and well-respected. He was my very own king. :)

Thanks for visiting my blog. I also like when names are meaningful. My human brother named me Chef because that is what he is, a chef; it is his passion, and so am I! James and Alih are very good and handsome dogs and I'm glad to know them.
