When and why did you change his name to Panda?

(I never make it through a day without a cry at oes.org)
Panda is sure one lucky boy.....
|Happy Anniversary!! to both Panda and Marianne!!!
|Thanks for the well wishes everyone!
Wendy, I wanted a new name to go with his new life as his former name may have been said too many times with angry tones. We had a contest of sorts on the forum and Panda was the chosen name. I wanted a name that represented his Asian roots but showed his cuddly side..Panda was perfect!
Still can't believe it was four years..wow!
His former owner still keeps in contact and always ask about him. Her family came to visit Panda when they visited Canada and were thrilled when he appeared to recognize them. They knew him for the first year of his life. I know now that the owner was just overwhelmed at trying to find a placement for him as dog shelters are rare in Asia. The "breeder" was charging her 500 monthly to keep him in that horrible place as she had very little options. She continued to pay it while searching for someone that would take him. I'm also grateful to Roy and Elby the original posters as because of them - Panda did find his forever home.
Here's a photo of Panda with his relatives..Grandma and Grandpa and aunts and uncles when they visited.
His Grandpa and Grandma both cried when they saw Panda again
Geesh you have made me cry again today!!! Happy tears!
What a great job you did with Panda and I am so sure the love is returned!
Good job Panda and Mom!
