Hee hee! When I was in high school, a neighbor, Jean* adopted a rescue Irish Setter that she introduced to us as Carrie. It wasn't until several years later that I learned the dog's name had been Karen when she adopted her, but Jean quickly adapted it to Carrie, as it would have been too confusing, particularly as I was often her summer dog walker/sitter!

*not her real name
