    If they ever allow sharpei x Afghan hound crosses in retriever trials, Bruce Gender's Return to Nip & Tuck Vendor, call name Cutter, might work...

    FC AFC Eva Ethyl Proby Weber is named for Mrs Eva J Proby and Mrs Ethyl Weber (Vern's wife)

    FC Remhocs Lejo Juderi was named for Lee and Joe Schomer, and Tom & Ric Martin's Mom and dad Judy and Enrique

    FC AFC Ole Yeller was named as a tribute to the character in the Disney movie and owner Cactus Pryor was friends with the author of the book Fred Gipson

    World Famous Mr Friendly( Lee) is named for Lee Jolley

    I also think Mr Freuhling had a dog named Kobe - maybe FC AFC Wood River's Air Apparent...not certain about this

    I have Usher, his puppy name he kept, the litter was rappers & rockers because they were noisy. His registered name is Hope Springs Hush Hush. Fortunately among his faults, noise isn't one of them. And there was a race horse last year that ran in the Kentucky Derby named after Bode Miller, Bodemeister. He was trained by Bob Baffert, well known trainer who is good friends w/the skier and named his own young son Bode.

    Oh! I forgot my own dog Darla and brothers Weezer & Spanky were named after the old Little Rascals characters.

    Er, good recall, Breck. The Rascals were playing at the same time as this movie with Charles Laughton's great recitation that inspired the naming of one of my field trial dogs...She happens to be British but she celebrates President's Day by not getting the day off just like the rest of us working stiffs, too.

    I had a pup that I registered as Redbranch MVP, and his call name was supposed to be Favre. Fortunately, somebody came along and made me an offer I couldn't refuse so I sold him. Another year later and I'd have had to change his call name.
