What’s in a Name? Hopalong Cassidy

Our new puppy is a pouncer and a jumper and a hopper and a leaper. She pounces on balls, big and small, snow drifts and errant towels that wind up on the floor. ┬áSo after a few days of trying out a few monikers — Shadow, from the name of her litter; Kansas, the state where she was born and Tawney, for her coloring and an artist friend — we transformed that trait into a name. Hopalong Cassidy she is; Cassidy for short.
