I was out walking the boys today...and was stopped by a fellow dog lover. appicon...she has 2 bulldogs. She was with a friend, and her friend heard me call Hercules' name, well, she said "Hercules"...and laughed! I get this all the time! People will say "Hercules, Hercules"...like from the movie "The Nutty Professor" (this doesn't bother me)...but it seems like some people will just say his name and giggle or snicker! I am not a snob...but I don't find his name to be funny! Hercules is on the smaller end of the boxer scale, only about 62lbs...and kind of short....but I love him all the same! And his name fits him VERY well....because he is strong as an ox! I just don't understand, as no one laughs at Kuma's name! How would they feel if I laughed at their child's name? Thanks...just had to vent to people who would understand!
