DEAR ABBY: What do you do when your best friend knowingly names her dog the name that you had picked for your future daughter (should there be a daughter)? Am I being silly to feel upset? -- HURT IN MINNEAPOLIS
DEAR HURT: What your friend did was doggone insensitive, and could create real problems should you have a daughter during her pet's lifetime. What does she think will happen if she calls her dog within earshot of your daughter?
Tell her you have a bone to pick with her. If she refuses to rename her dog, consider that a clue about how she prioritizes your feelings.
