Lincoln Dog

28 May

Something a little less heavy!

This little guy is our 4 year old beagle – Lincoln.  I get lots of compliments on his name.  Most people think he’s named for his copper color and resemblance to a penny.  Only a few know the real story behind his name.

I got Lincoln in October 2008.  A co-worker was getting a dog and I decided it was also time to have a pal.  We poured over the internet for beagles.  We talked about how much we wanted to spend, how far we’d drive to get them, and names.  We tried to come up with fun names for these lovable animals, but we couldn’t come up with anything good.  Until we thought about our favorite movies and TV shows.  BAM!  All sorts of fun names!  Ok, there were still some upsets with our favorite movies and shows, but eventually we waded through all the ordinary.

Mr. Lincoln Dog is named after a character from Prison BreakLincoln Burrows.  This character is framed and sent to death row for crimes he didn’t commit.  His brother decides to break him out of prison and clear his name.  Now, my Lincoln has never been framed for anything, but he has escaped – from the house, his collar, a hand holding his leash.  And that’s about where the similarities end.  Oh, and they’re both very cute!

    I’d just like to take a moment to say “you’re welcome for introducting you to prison break” and also, if your journey takes you through Sparta, Mr. Lincoln and Miss Ellie need to play (there’s even a dog park in town where they can run free).

      Unfortunately, I don’t think we’ll be going by Sparta, but we’ll be so much closer than we were in ID, so I think Mr. Lincoln and I will need to make a trip to see you! :o)
