Really? When the writers for the Yahoo! front page started putting dog’s names in quotation marks, I couldn’t help but wonder what was next.
Maybe we ought to put the name of every animal in quotation marks. Roy Rogers rode “Trigger,” while Dale Evans rode “Buttermilk.” And who can forget those other famous equines, “Phar Lap” and “Secretariat”? I’m thinking if animal names are in quotation marks, shouldn’t people’s names be in quotes, too?
