Where did you go Van Gogh?

Today I saw the best name for a pet that I have seen in a long time.  

It was a simple sign someone printed at home that read "LOST DOG" and had a picture of an adorable mixed breed looking loving into the camera lens.  I skimmed the sign quickly and was about to pull away when what I read finally sunk into my heat-stroked brain.  

The poor run away puppy's name is "Van Gogh".  Why did this particular name make me do a double take, stop the car and get out in the unbearable midwestern heat & humidity and send me into fits of laughter?  Because the pup is missing his right ear!

So if you are in the Westport area and you see a cute one-eared dog, now you know Van Gogh.
