Try as I might, I couldn’t find a name that truly fit this gal’s personality. She’s bossy and demanding and sometimes she can even be a bit aggressive. When she really wants something she stands her ground, she will stomp her foot if the dogs don’t follow her directions. She wants so much to be the queen, to rule the roost, but behind that facade she is soft and affectionate, especially when she thinks no one is looking…
This morning I mentioned to hubby that we really did need to name this girl. We’ve been calling her Big-Momma because none of the suggested names have really fit her quite right. He started scrolling through a list of names. Esther, Lucy, Maude, when he got to Katherine I turned to look at him and he clarified “like Katherine Hepburn” and I laughed and said she’s Katherine McLintock. He just smiled and said we’ll call her Katie for short, or when she’s being nice.
Katherine Gilhooley McLintock, played by Maureen O’Hara, was the leading lady in the 1963 movie that starred John Wayne. I still contend this movie had one of the best chase scenes of all time. If you haven’t seen it, I suggest you do. It’s a true classic. Pretty good fight scene too 🙂
This name fits like a glove. As I watch her antics I can literally hear lines from the movie, other characters responses to Katherine McLintock. The only thing that would make it more perfect is if she was a red-head.
