San Juan Councilman Says He Named His Dog 'Muhammad'
by Adam Elmahrek
San Juan Capistrano City Councilman Derek Reeve announced at last week's council meeting that he gave one of his dogs — animals considered particularly impure in the Muslim world — the same name as the Muslim prophet Muhammad.
"That's right," Reeve said at the council meeting, "I named my dog Muhammad."
The remarks came during a discussion about a planned dog park in the city. A council action related to the dog park was scheduled for adoption without discussion, but Reeve pulled the item to ask questions and make a brief comment.
