Mimi’s Oskar Diamond Magic

Reilly is having a naming contest over at his blog, so I thought I’d tell you my real name & how I got it.

That wee little tot was named, Mimi’s Oskar Diamond Magic on his AKC papers. 

Once they had picked out my breed, German like my dad person, they decided they wanted a German name and settled on Oskar.

The way my mom person was able to get me is that she won some front-row center Neil Diamond tickets on a radio station named Magic.  She sold the tickets & picked little old me!  So Mimi is my mom’s nickname, Oskar is my name, Diamond for Neil, and Magic for the radio station that gave her the tickets.  That’s how I got all of those other names for the AKC.

Now hop on over to Cowspot Dog to play along yourself.

  11. hey Oskar,

    What a great story! Your name is so fun, and so full of cool facts! I think your name suits you perfectly! Your humans could not have done a better job!

    Thanks for sharing!


  12. I like your AKC fancy name! I have a CKC name – Sir Kirby Kingston Martin of Mississippi. I'm a Dorkie (Dachshund/Yorkie) so I got English names. No German name cos we couldn't think of one 🙁 although mama once had a german shepard named Konig which is "king" in german.

  13. Hi Oskar – am still catching up on my blog friends so I'm only just reading this now! What a great story about your name! How perfect! (And my human, Hsin-Yi, says she would have sold anything too – probably even real diamonds – to get a doggie!) 🙂
