Her Name Is R-O-G-U-E

Over the past month I’ve had several friends and family members ask how rouge is doing.

Her name is Rogue!

Not Rouge!

Maybe it’s just a slip up of the fingers, but for some, it seems to be a pretty frequent mistake.

She may be a Fox Red Labrador, but her name is still not Rouge!

According to a definition I found via Googgle, “Rogue” means: “One who is pleasantly mischievous or frolicsome; hence, often used as a term of endearment” (Webster, 2011).

From our first couple days of having our little butterscotch puppy, we knew we’d picked the perfect name for her. She’s not like any other puppy we’ve ever known. And she’s definitely not going to be like any other service dog either.

She doesn’t seem to be afraid of anything. She seems curious about the world around her. And, she isn’t concerned about telling us what she doesn’t like (i.e. being restrained, crated or denied food).

So, please try and check your spelling before asking how my little Pupparoo is doing, okay? Because I’m really getting annoyed with the Rouge questions.

I’ll now stop ranting, and return you all to our regularly scheduled topics.

  1. LOL I know one day when I was tweeting to you from my phone the auto-correct spelling thing suggested I change Rogue to rouge. Maybe that’s what is happening for others too?

  2. Hi L^, it’s possible people could be having an auto-correct issue, but it still seems to be quite often.
