Deb, I hope you do not lower your appreciation when I tell you that I only 
watched Star Trek two or three times.

Dax was the name of a German character in The Day of the Jackal. I 
remembered it and always thought it a great dog name. It is one syllable 
and easy to say loud if necessary. Benny, the Aussie, hm, I think Chris 
named him. I shout Ben if I must get his attention fast, like when I see 
someone approaching in the desert with another dog. Benny thinks the world 
is his territory and strange dogs are enemies. He grew up on the farm, 
where those conditions exist.
