Wisconsin Dog Named After Adele Song Wins Westminster Show
The five-year-old dog took home "Best in Show" yesterday. Check out pictures and her story right here...
Rumor's family is from Edgerton, Wisconsin. This was her second year in the Westminster Show. Last year she finished as a finalist. This is the second time a German Shepard has won the show.
Rumor is named after the Adele song "Rumor Has It".
I LOVE clever names!
Meet my fur babies, Mika and Khuno.
Khuno - God of snow storms.
Mika - New moon.
The stories behind their names are super random:
Khuno is an American Eskimo dog, so, of course, I was searching Alaskan names. I was in love with Juno, until I saw Khuno (pronounced the same way - the h is silent) and after reading its meaning and authenticity, I decided it was perfect.
Mika on the other hand, was adopted. She had a very generic name when we took her home. My step son and I were driving, and trying to come up with clever names. That's when we went by Moka - we LOVE Moka. For whatever reason, the name Mika (mee-kah) came to mind and we just knew. When we looked it up and saw it meant "new moon", it stuck.
