What goes in the middle?

Today is Middle Name Pride Day, according to Ranger's wacky howliday list. So what's YOUR middle name?

Casey: My middle name is Houdini. It's in honor of my mad skillz at escaping any place I want. I can get out of my crate no matter HOW Momma locks and zip ties it. I just stay in now because I choose to. BOL. I can also get out of the bedroom once I open my crate -- yup, I know how to turn doorknobs!

 Jessie: My middle name is Ella! It's in honor of my angel sister Cinderella, who went to the Rainbow Bridge just a few months before I showed up at the shelter needing a rescue. Momma and I both know that Angel Cinderella had a paw in getting me home, so my middle name is to remind us of her.

Pigeon: My middle name is Lipstick. Momma actually named me Lipstick at furst because I reminded her of the kitty from the book "Koko's Kitten," about an ape named Koko who adopted a kitten. She named it Lipstick because it was red. I look a lot like it, so that was my name at furst... but it just didn't suit me! She switched my name to Pigeon because my purring sounds like a pigeon cooing, and Lipstick became my middle name!

    All admirable names indeed! I never every had a middle name until I got my new first name... and now my original first name is in the middle. Which is a bit like Pidge's story I s'pose!!! Hugs wags and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx
