Hi. I've been a memeber here for awhile but have been absent for awhile too. Had a lot going on. Now things are back to normal and I need help picking out a name for a schnauzer pup. Its a male and the coat color is salt and pepper. I was hoping to stick to a Greek mythology-so to speak theme for a name but any would be appreciated. I know there are a lot of good ones out there.
One such dog was Laelaps. Laelaps was a dog in Greek mythology. When Zeus was a baby, a dog, known only as the “golden hound” was charged with protecting the future King of Gods. This may have been the same dog Zeus later gave to Europa. Zeus had fallen deeply in love with the beautiful Europa, and when given the chance stole her away to the island of Crete. There he tried to seduce her by giving her three gifts: Tálos, a giant bronze creature (perhaps more accurately a robot); a javelin that never missed, and Laelaps, a dog that never failed to capture its prey. Europa eventually gave the dog to Minos, King of Crete. After being cured by Procris of a terrible disease, Minos gave her the great dog Laelaps. The dog was soon sent to capture the Teumessian fox, a giant fox that could never be caught. This created a paradox, for the dog always caught its prey, and the fox could not be caught. The chase went on unto Zeus grew weary and confused of the dilemma and simply turned both into stone, frozen forever in the chase.
PWhat about Prometheus, the rebel god who gave fire and comfort to mortals? Or Kheiron (Chiron) who was a powerful Centaur and a master of arts and sciences. Kronos was the father of the Olympians and a Titan.
In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog. ~Edward Hoagland
