Dogs, horses, hogs & friends

Sometimes, it takes a while to name something. My dogs have pretty normal names for dogs, Daisy and Odie (supposed to have been Otis Cranfills, but that didn’t stick). My best friend, BFF, or Mary Pat, has her menagerie of animals. She will always wait until the animal tells her what he or she wants to be named. Her mixture of mutts is named Roy Gene, Rose 
Bernice, and Barbara Jane. All of these critters found her and these dogs found the life of Riley with her.
