My Dog's Name is.... uhm....
We came across a gentleman with a Havanese while walking around the neighborhood yesterday. All was well and good until he found out my dog was named Castro, he got very offended and went on to say that he is Cuban, and that it was like naming a dog Adolf or Hitler and telling a Jewish person that. I immediately apologized if my dogs name offends him, but he continued on ranting about how his uncle was executed and that I should be ashamed of myself. He picked up his dog and walked away, leaving me and my husband speechless...
Don't get me wrong, I completely understand and would probably feel the same way, given the same circumstances... I just feel that since I don't know him, and he surely doesn't know me - there wasn't really a reason for him to scream at us, or act as if we were deliberately trying to offend him.
This has been bothering me since.....
Was I insensitive and politically incorrect to name my Havanese dog "Castro"? Aside from changing my dogs' name - what should I do, if any?
But most importantly, to those I may have offended by naming my dog Castro, my sincerest apologies...
