I saw your recommended name of Kaya and decided to put a twist on the letters…Kyla. She’s an older rescue dog, I think part Pyrenees breed. Vet thinks she might be 5 yrs old already, so it’s been hard for her to learn a new name. Thanks for helping me out with the choice.
I love Nanook….and may steal it for our little guy. 🙂
