And the winner is…

I know, I know, you’re sitting on the edge of your seat. You just can’t wait to find out what we named our dog. Nothing more exciting has ever occurred in the universe.

Drumroll…

Wait, I’m sure the picture in your reader already gave it away.

We kept his name as Odin, *but* with a catch. Oats came in first in the polls, (70 votes, wow!). So, he will be Odin with the nickname of Oats, which works great, because, like I said, the long O sound catches his ears every time, (must have been destined to be Olivia O’Bryon’s dog, right? Enough long O’s for you?). Okay, really he’s more of my husband’s dog, but that’s beside the point.

And, in the spirit of any good marriage, it definitely checked the compromise box. Alex liked the Norse mythology behind the name Odin, so he keeps it, and I don’t have to call him the prefix odi- (aka hate). So, welcome Oats/Odin to the family. Everyone needs a nickname or two, right?

I know what you're thinking, wait, his name was already Odin-- but, his tag said Odi before, so he did officially receive a name change.

Looks pretty comfortable with his new identity, the Norse god of magic and also the father of Thor, (thanks for that suggestion Elizabeth!).

    Shoot, I missed the vote! Don and I were even brainstorming cute Odi-esque names before we went to sleep last night lol. I like the result, though, excited to see Odin/Oats again soon!

  2. He’s seriously adorable! I want a dog now!
