Mr. Michaels... I have to just tell the quick story on our shih tzu .. Milo. When we got him, we all wanted Milo except my one daughter - Jenna. She was about 6 at the time, and she wanted to name him "cookie". We told her that we would make his middle name "cookie". She was so happy and we were relieved we wouldn't have a boy dog named Cookie. Anyhow, at his first vet visit, some lady came up to my husband and said "oh, what a cute dog, what is his name"? Jenna pipes up "Milo Cookie (my last name)" Jenna never stopped calling him Milo Cookie..so we often refer to him as Milo Cookie..or even worse "Mr Cookie" We rarely call him Milo!
