Lave it to an overprices bureaucracy to muddle anything that is already straightforward. I agree w/Grillmaster, Mutt would have been ideal; universally understood/unambiguous. Of course, the next choice would be "Heinz" or "Heinz 57".

Wasn't that the name of one of those crazy Aztec dieties, like Quetzalcoatl, or Whoatethelastacocapetl?

My dog is NOT a Xylophone! She's furry and BIG. God love her, I'd hate to be an intruder in this house, but the cat has her number. She's scared to death of it. LOL
