I know I’ve mentioned The Big Hungry before, but, with Thanksgiving Day being tomorrow, and the way Kevin ended up with (and naming) The Big Hungry was due to a Holiday Dinner incident many years ago, I thought the timing was right for sharing.
Now The Big Hungry was a stray found by one of Kevin’s good friends back in ’99. He already had a dog, so he ended up giving Hungry to his parents to keep.
That didn’t work out to well, during the hustle and bustle of getting the Holiday dinner ready (Kevin and his friend can’t recall if it was Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner), the kitchen was left unattended for mere seconds.
But that was all the time The Big Hungry needed to swipe the dinner ham and wolf down half of it before anyone returned!
That was the final straw, he was no longer welcome at the house.
Kevin found out about the incident, and through fits of laughter said: “Well he’s just a Big Hungry Puppy!”, and offered to take him on the spot!
He was called The Big Hungry ever since!
