Canine 99

In my 20s, I owned a Beagle/Lab mix so when Rhody the Coonhound came into my life, I was rather familiar with some of the houndish traits.  For instance, spying on your neighbors is always popular.  

When considering a name for Rhody, I actually thought of "99--" the female spy on "Get Smart," especially since she has long legs like the lovely Barbara Feldon.  But how do you call a dog named "99?"  "Nine!  Come here!"  Sounds rather cryptic so we went with more of a "real" name.  However, 99 certainly would have fit!
