It’s a word you’ve probably heard before, but what does it mean?
Is it a dog’s name, a place of worship or a country?
This was the topic of a question from our dog, Liza.
She’s a German Shepherd with Down syndrome.
Liza was asked if she would ever consider naming her dog after a country or even a country-related word.
Lizzie from Adelaide, Australia, said it’s not as bad as some people would think.
“You might as well put it on the street, put it in a park or put it at the zoo, but I don’t know,” she said.
“I think that’s a bit too hard.
I’m not going to say it’s a stupid name.
I know it’s probably a bit of a word.”
When people start to talk about the names of these places, they’ll be like ‘Oh no, it’s such a silly name, you don’t have to do it.’
