Meet Mike Rowe's New Puppy, Freddie
After asking for help from the fans and playing a messy game of Puppy-Poop Bingo, the "Dirty Jobs" host finally settled on a name for his new adorable pup.
What do you do when you can't decide on a new puppy's name? Play Puppy-Poop Bingo, of course!
"Dirty Jobs" host Mike Rowe recently rescued a homeless puppy that was living on the streets, but he had a harder time than expected coming up with the perfect name.
To help him decide, Mike employed the little-known messy game he calls "Puppy-Poop Bingo." Before leaving for a few hours to record narrations for "Deadliest Catch," "How the Universe Works," and "The Bait," Mike wrote his top name choices on the back of a puppy potty-training pad and let the little guy make his—ahem—mark.
Mike elaborated on the tough decision process in a Facebook post, writing, "It was a tough call. Barsky is fine name and a dear personal friend. Fred King was a highschool music teacher who changed my life. The dog has qualities that remind me of both men - including a propensity to crap on the floor. In the end, I deferred to the wisdom of the old chestnut, “It’s Not Where You Start...It’s Where You Finish.” And the pup clearly finished on Freddie."
