Hey everybody! I'm glad to be back visiting with you on a daily basis. If you've ever listened to Mid Ohio's Country WNCO, then we're probably already friends. If not , let me introduce myself. I'm Matt Appleby, a Lexington native and Ashland High School graduate who's been on the air in mid Ohio since the winter of 1980. And yes that is my real name (who'd make that up?) My wife Kelly and I make our home in Mansfield and our daughter Sara is out on her own working as a case manager RN for a home health care agency. And while this is my first opportunity to DJ on Y105, I have been a fan of this station for a long time and I love the music. I'd be glad to have you as a Facebook friend, too. Thanks for tuning in weeknights on Y105!
My wife and I had a pet Yorkie named Murphy who passed away over two years ago. There's still a Yorkie sized whole in our hearts, but that sadness disappear for a brief period whan we rescued a stray dog.
A few weekends ago we took in a dog that had been dumped, at night, in the cold and rain. My wife, the bigger softie of the two of us, could not ignore his cries so we brought him in and dried him off. He was very sweet and tame. He quickly made himself at home. We spent the next five days checking all the local vets, groomers, shelters, even internet sources, etc. to see if anyone reported any similar dog missing. Without any luck on that front we looked for someone who might want a dog and found him a new home.
While he stayed with us, we called our litte Christmas miracle "Buddy" as in Buddy the elf. As you'll see on the list to follow that's one of the more popular names for male dogs. We've thought that if we ever decided to have a dog again...it would be a Yorkie and we might even get two, a male and a female. We agreed that perhaps a the names of a famous movie couple might fit. Rhett and Scarlet, Harry & Sally or my favorite Hannibal and Clarice! Still I think that's a long way off .
When the time comes to get yourselves a dog, consider these names which, according to VetStreet.com, are the most popular puppy names of 2012:
