Is His Name Really the Foo?
I get asked this question quite a lot.
Like any dog, over the years, as more of Jake’s personality developed, I came up with different nicknames for him. When he was about 6 months or so, I just started calling him Little Jakey Foo Foo, which was shortened to Jakey Foo, and then to just Foo.
I’m not really sure how or why that name came to be. It just did.
Of course, there were other nicknames for him: Bubby, Jakey Poo, Poppy, Poppychooch, Stinkpot Mooch, Foo Man Choo, and Jakey Boy. But the one constant was always Foo.
His official name was Jake. But he was, and will always be, The Foo.
Oh, and in case it wasn't obvious, the Foo and I are huge basketball fans. Tarheel fans all the way. We'll leave our NBA team fav for another time....
