For everybody, saying we should call it LoLaBuBiLand... One needs to put a stop somewhere, you know I like short names:). Imagine how long you would need to pronounce our Center's name when I'm 80 or something:). Lo, La and Bu were my dogs when I opened a virtual LoLaBuLand and then decided to keep the same name. LaBuBi is our video team and I guess eventually I will need to think of a product to be named BuBiLe and then BiLeBo etc. Yeah, just in case you were wondering if I still have some names ready:).
Now, the story with names is actually a very long one too. When I decided Lo will be called Lo, I still thought she will be a Samoyed and will be called Lo, as in "Law of Nature". To make my parents happy (or let me put it this way: a little less unhappy) I decided for a smaller dog then, but I liked the name so much that it was a keeper.
When I started to search for La, I started to learn French, borrowing the tapes in library to listen&repeat some basic French sentences. I was always good in math and physics and stuff where things makes sense and foreign languages were always my weakest point as NOTHING makes sense, you just need to remember million of words, how terrible is that for somebody with my memory!?! One of the sentences I needed to repeat like an idiot was "The church is over there". The rest was difficult, but "over there", la-bas was somewhat catchy. In the next session, the man on the tape explained "la" means "there", but can also mean "here" in same cases. Sounded as a perfect name. La - here and there in the same moment! Can't describe La much better than that!:)
And now we had a pattern... Lo and La. For Bu, my first choice would be Bo (means "will be" in Slovenian), but as it sounds too much like Lo, I decided to only use Bo as a name when Lo gets deaf. So I was thinking Pu or Bu and went with Bu, so Bi could only be Bi or Be, that's why she is Bi and if you follow the pattern you can guess my next one must be PyrShep Le, followed by BC Bo (Lo turned deaf just few weeks ago, so we are ready for Bo now...:) and eventually, I will come to Ej too, I have that one ready for ages, but it somehow doesn't fit in.
That's in short a history of my dogs' names, in case you wondered where they come from.
