A big cheese?

One only meets the nicest of dogs in my local park.

This fine wee pug chappie is called Stilton. He is eight months old and already a big cheese on Instagram apparently.

I wonder what he thinks about being named after one of Gail's favourite foodables?

Given Gail's fondness for cheeses - the smellier the better - it occurred to me that I could have met with a similar fate, name-wise.

Can you imagine me as 'Camem-Bert'?
Is Gail teasing me when she says perhaps 'Stinking Bishop' would have been appropriate?
Tomme (de SavoieScotland) is, I think, suitably plain, manly and distinguished.
Or Rick-cotta? Rocky-fort?
Phil Adelphia?
Maybe Gordon Zola...

Er, I wonder if my friends ever speculate on this topic?


  1. Bertie that was 100% canine wisdom... and that is an important topic...we have a friend who is named after a worse politician (but the owner had a gun in his mind) and the poor pup gets many gleeful grins at social medias...

  2. LOL I like Gordon Zola we could call you Gordy!!
    This was particularly funny to me. My daughter's first job was in the Food Science Department.
    The professor was a dairy expert folks called him The Big Cheese.
    I woke up way too early this am I guess I'm eager for jury duty

  3. PS is Stilton a pug? I've never seen one that color he is a cutie though

  4. One more vote for Gordon Sola! Or maybe Gail can just save that for her “back up dog?”

  5. We are laughing at all your cheesy names. Stilton is a cutie but we can tell you are the top dog Bertie. We've never seen a Merle pug before.

  6. We would be Cheddar and Havarti if we had cheese names.

    OMD cuteness overload... I too have never seen a pug coloured like Stilton. Almost any of the names would suit you Bertie lad; but am rather glad Gail stuck with convention for you! hugs and wags YAM-aunty xxx

  8. That Stilton is a cutie...but we think Mamas should probably stay away from cheese-y names BOL!

  9. We have never seen a dappled pug before - what a handsome boy that Stilton is!!! Camem-Bert! You are a funny boy, Bertie - we love all your cheesy pup names:)

  10. Sorry....we think of CHEESE generically...BO! Just CHEESE.

  11. WE have never seen a pug that looks like that! He is a cutie though

  12. OMD, Stilton is ADORABLES!!! Um...I means HANDSOME!!! Bertie, I thinks you should be grateful Gail picked the name she did.....☺

  13. What a cute little guy Stilton is :) What a interesting coat colour for a pug. Milo,Jet & Arli

  14. OMD, Momma says she's never seen a pug that color before! Apparently when she was a wee pup, she had both Labradors and pugs, and boxers were her compromise between them.

  15. What a interesting pug color! Thank Dog we are not named after cheese....can you imagine 'ParmAiresan' or 'Formaggio Tegano'!

  16. Stilton is quite a handsome dude. My assistant is crazy about potatoes so I might been named fries, hash brown, or mashed potato. Ugh, thank goodness she didn't ever consider it.

  17. Hi hi hi! Ojo here! I wish I only met the nicest of Dogs at the park! It's very hit and miss! Also, I like Camem-Bert! Very distinguished! Also, I love cheese! My person sings a song to me, the tune is Beauty and the Beast, but she sings "Ojo and the cheese"! It is my favourite!
