What to name the new dog

A very literal family discussion.

My granddaughter was planning to add a dog to the family. She asked her 2-year-old daughter what she would name the dog if it was a boy, and her daughter said, “Boy Dog.” So her mother then asked what she would name the dog if it was a girl, and her daughter said, “Not Boy Dog.”
