Someone said this to us at a recent baby shower. I started laughing out loud, then felt bad and ate my laughter. Clearly she felt very close to her dog, or she wouldn't have brought her up.
Growing up, I had dogs named Chester and Gabriela... but I usually don't bring that up when I meet their human namesakes.
Has anyone ever told you that their dog or cat has the same name as your LO? How did you respond?
