Saturday January 19, 2002 we went to Castletop Kennels in Pleasant
Valley New York. We picked out a puppy and brought him home
on Sunday January 27, 2002. We will be registering the puppy with
the AKC with the full
name of Castletop's Tramp Bella Note Fudge.
The process of naming a dog in the AKC requires that the name never be duplicated, so it is necessary to come up with a multi-named dog in order to make sure you will not have trouble with the registration. Since the movie Lady and the Tramp was the beginning of my love of Cocker Spaniels, I am using the TRAMP BELLA NOTTE name as a tribute to that movie. You might remember the scene where Tramp and Lady have a spaghetti dinner at a fancy table behind the restaurant. The restaurant owner/chef serenades the young dog lovers with the song Bella Notte (Beautiful Night). He is a rich milk chocolate brown hence the reference to FUDGE.
Ebony will make a great big sister we are sure.
