As I mentioned in my post a couple days ago, we were fostering a puppy for a few days. I'm happy to say that he has been returned to his rightful owners.
While we were taking care of him, he went through many names: Hector, Zeus, Marc, Finn, and Plato being among them. But his real name is Andy, and he responded to it quite well when he called him by it. My mom and dad drove him to the owners' house and they were overjoyed to see him again.
Apparently they have a massive back yard and another dog, who Andy absolutely loves. And, unlike with Homer, this dog loves Andy back.
Obviously we will all miss Andy very much, but I'm sure he's happier now.
