HER STREET name is Sadie. But among the canine elite, the Scottish terrier who won last week's Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is known as Roundtown Mercedes of Maryscot.
You have to say that in sort of a nasally British accent to get the full effect.
In any case, I'm thrilled for Sadie, who overcame an embarrassing potty accident in the ring last year to win this year's title.
But her creative legal name--and that of her fellow competitors--makes my husband and me feel a bit inadequate about our own dog-naming skills.
