Our Pet Of The Day: Zevon

What can you say about a dog named Zevon? First of all, the question we always get is, “That’s an unusual name. What does it mean?” This Alaskan Malamute is named after Warren Zevon. Now, as Paul Harvey famously said, the rest of the story.

Our oldest son Quin was visiting his friend out in Inez one day when two stray dogs that had been hanging around showed up. His friend said he was going to call the pound since they had no idea who owned them and they had no collars or tags. One was a Pit Bull, the other our Zevon. Quin, being the animal lover that is said, “No, don’t do that. My Mom will take them.”

So, he brought the two dogs to our house where they were enjoying the back yard. Quin decided he would take the Pit Bull home with him and we fell in love with the Malamute. Noah, our youngest, who was 3 at the time, happened to glance out the window and noticed the dogs. He excitedly shouted “Mom, there’s a werewolf in the back yard!” After recovering from fits of laughter, we thought that we’d better give him a name, and since Noah mentioned a werewolf, the first thing I thought of was “Werewolves of London” by Warren Zevon. Then it clicked – “Let’s call him Zevon” I said. We all agreed that the name was perfect.

We did eventually find the owners, and they agreed the dog could stay in his new home. Zevon is extremely friendly, and rarely barks, and he accepts all kinds of playful attacks from our 2 new puppies and the occasional swipe from the cats.
