Twix and The Name Game

As most of you know, Frankie Furter has asked us to post about our names today. I did a post about how I got my name in the past and here it is for those of you who haven't read it before.
When people meet me for the first time, they look at me and then ask either Mom or Dad, "Is your favorite candy bar a Twix?". Of course, they reply, "N0".
Lets go back several years....My momma met me for the first time when I was 3 weeks old. That is when she chose me out of all my brothers and sisters--lucky me! At that time I was a tiny chocolate and tan (caramel is what Mom prefers to say) dachsie. After I came home, Mom had a hard time picking out my name but finally decided to name me after a candy bar because of my color. Okay, so we finally have it narrowed down. I mean, how many candy bar names are there anyway? Well it seems I was a bit naive because there are hundreds of candy bar names.
Here we go....Hershey--no, most chocolate dogs have that name. Zero--kinda cute but no, don't want to be thought of as nothing. Rolo--maybe. Snickers--no, same reason as Hershey. Chunky--NO! for obvious reasons. Reese's--maybe. Kit Kat--I hate cats! The list went on and on. I came very close to being named Rolo but Mom finally decided on Twix. After all, I kinda look like a Twix bar...or at least, I did. You know, long and thin, chocolate and tan. At some point I started to change color and Mom was not too happy about it. And that is how a red dachsie ended up with a name like Twix.
I hope everypup and everycat has a wonderful Independence Day!

Hi Twix,

I didn't knows you before when you posted this story, so I am so glads that Frankie thought of this name game!

My mom thinks Twix is a pawsome weinerdog name. She had an extra-long weinerdog befores that she named Tootsie, for da Tootsie Roll candy. But Twix is so much mores unique!
