When we adopted our second puppy, Chuck, there was a definite negotiation between me and The Lovely Mrs. Tophour. See, we already had one dog and I thought that was enough, but Heather saw Chuck (then named Squeak) and had to have him.
So, in exchange for getting the dog, I got the right to rename the puppy plus a new iPod. (Yeah, I’m a radio guy with an iPod. I gotta have someplace to listen to jingle demos on the road. What of it?) However, in a fit of generosity, I let my wife choose between two names: Chuck and (my first choice) Ike. Heather chose Chuck, and this seems prophetic, as we’d never be able to move to Houston with a dog named Ike, and I’m a man who likes to keep my options open.
So, what does this have to do with Toppy? Well, Voice Guy Chris Rollins was on a trip in early August before the devastation of Hurricane Ike, and he sent along today’s IDs from H-town.
Next week: IDs from some place that hasn’t been bitchslapped by the weather lately.
