I am slightly scared, but sign me up for random name change!

(On a related note, I think the starship name is tons cooler than Donald's new one)

My only request: don't give me a name that gets cut off my the name length. If it's too long to fit all at once, could you click 'random' again? Kthx :grin:

Both the person and the dog are the same (the dog turns into the girl). Does that clarify a bit?

Hmm... A little bit of inquiring from my Japanese-obsessed friends tells me that guru guru is a vaguely onomatopoeiac phrase for spinning or dizzy, which can mean lovestruck or lovesick in slang. -chan is a feminine diminuitive suffix, very informal and usually used to address pets, boy-and-girlfriends, and young girls.

So yeah, you're a lovesick little lesbian labrador, chief.
