The big discussion on a name had to take place.  Pets in our family ‘always’ have been names car names, and then to add to the complication I started an added tradition of naming my first cat Dodge, and then added to that with the next Charger, and then when 2 guinea pigs joined the family last year they also ‘had’ to be Dodge car models.  So we have Nitro and Charger.

Looking down the lit of Dodge models it wasn’t terribly inspiring for girls names, but then Dakota appeared.  I wasn’t sure at first, Dan quite liked it, but Ben wasn’t keen.  So we carried on making a list of other names too.

But then Dakota kept beating all the other names, and I loved the fact it was different too.

So Dakota was chosen.
