Have you ever heard the story of Duck the Dog? Kinda confusing, huh? You’ll have to watch Duck’s video to understand the story behind his name. It’s so sweet. A young boy who can’t pronounce his new dog’s name, so his parents just change the name. A classic story of a dog who sticks by his boy for his entire life. It really reminds you how much love a dog has for their owners. It also really makes us think about our dog, CiCi, and how she got her name.
Sean got CiCi about a year before we met. I actually first noticed Sean around our apartment building because he was always walking his cute puppy. So CiCi really helped us meet!
For some reason, I always thought that CiCi was named after CiCi’s Pizza, and that she had been found in the dumpster behind the restaurant. I swear that’s what Sean told me when we started dating. But CiCi is really named after C.C. Sabathia, a pitcher in Major League Baseball. He is Sean’s favorite player and played for his favorite team, the Cleveland Indians, when Sean got CiCi. He wanted a unique name, so he went with CiCi.
We also have a cool story behind our cat’s name. Her name is Bear, and she was named after Bear Grylls. I know that Sean loves Bear Grylls, the adventurous survivalist from the TV show Man vs. Wild. Our cat Bear was actually found in a dumpster with two of her siblings, both of whom had passed away. We knew that our Bear was a survivor, so it worked perfectly to name her after Bear Grylls.
If you have a cool story for how your pet got their name, we’d love to hear it below!
