Love your name Booker! What made Mommy name you that?
And to answer Marley's Mommy's question, we actually didn't name her. Her first owners (the ones who tried for 3 1/2 years to make her into a golden retriever) named her that and we thought it fit her so we kept it. Apparently they had been to a Washington Huskies basketball game just before getting her. One of the players had the last name of Booker, and throughout the game the crowd kept cheering for "BOOOOOOKKKKKER" . Their two young girls liked the name and wanted to name their new puppy that when she arrived - they didn't care that Booker seemed more like a boy's name and that's how she became "the Book"!
