Meet Miloš!


Things are a little hectic around the RHOB household these days. On Saturday, we picked up a new addition: a French Bulldog we’ve named Miloš (pronounced ME-losh).

Miloš is a traditional Serbian name. It’s a bit unusual for a dog–kind of like naming your dog Richard in America–but we wanted to celebrate his Serbian beginnings, and it’s a name that’s easy for Americans to remember. Muz also wanted a “strong” name for him, and it doesn’t get much stronger than Miloš. After all, another Miloš, Miloš Obrenović, was a Prince of Serbia, part of the first uprising against the Ottomans, led the second uprising, and later negotiated autonomy within the Ottoman Empire. During his rule, he refused to share power.

Hmmm. Maybe that’s not the best example for our dog. In fact, our Miloš IS a little bossy. This morning, he glared at me for not letting him up on the couch. I hope we don’t have any dog uprisings in our future.

  4. Not when we’re eating or when he’s interested in chewing my laptop. He’s definitely a little dictator in the making.
