fortunately dogs don't have "gender identity crisis". I used to
know a big old Bull Terrier, about as masculine a dog as you could ever
hope to meet. His name was Pinky. My 13 year old female aussie is called
Robb. Plenty of dogs get named by the kids in the family and end up with
really bizarre names. Dogs don't care what their names are, they just want
to get called over for pets and food....
