Me: Hi, I'd like to make an appointment for Panda Boo Bear's yearly check up.
Vet's Office: Panda Boo Bear ... let's see ... is your last name Bear?
Me: No, my cat's last name is Bear. My last name is Schwartz.
Vet's Office: Oh, there he is! Panda Boo Bear Schwartz.
Me: No, when I adopted him I didn't make him take my last name.
Vet's Office: Well, that's how we list them. So, just so you know, he's in our records as Panda Boo Bear Schwartz.
Me: I feel like we should hyphenate that?
Vet's Office: I'm sorry?
Me: Can we hyphenate that? Like he's Panda Boo Bear-Schwartz?
Vet's Office: ... if you'd prefer.
Me: Yes, thank you.
