— — A selection of reader comments from our Facebook page last week:

On a date-stamp mistake bringing $9,000 worth of chicken to the Bluefield Union Mission:

• Not a mistake, a “random act of God” — Janel H.

• Was a human error, but was God’s plan to bless the poor. Thank you Jesus! — Janis D.

On unique and interesting pet names:

• My sister has a dog named Schatzi. That’s German, BTW — Neal V.

• I have a brother/sister cat pair named Pork and Bean — Kathy L.

• Nexxus. Bella Mae — Joya C.

• Mr. Biggles — Jamie L.

• OMGosh! ... I also have a dog named Schatzi ... It means treasure. And she sure is! — Teri S.

• I have German shepherd named Tanzy and a beagle named Buddha — Selina T.

• Our granddaughters named one of our cats Ninjaoreogus. (Ninja Oreo Gus) — Brian W.

• Mani (that is “peanut” in Costa Rican Spanish) — LaTrissia B.

• My cat’s name is The Cat but we call him TC — Charlene L.

• I had two dogs named Poodink and Chinky — Sherry B.

On a column about abundant plea deals in Mercer County:

• Very good editorial. Identifies a problem that I have noticed — that someone is charged with more than one offense but then a deal is made to plead to one or two and the rest forgotten. If they are charged with crimes, they need to go to court on all the charges — Bill S.

On a McDowell County rescue dog being featured on Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl X Tailgate Party:

• I watch the Puppy Bowl — Tammy H.

• Puppy Bowl is so cool. I watch it every year — Julia L.
