On Wednesday (March 27), "Today" show, host (and major Blake Shelton
fan) Hoda Kotb
adopted a rescue dog, a Cockapoo, from PAWS Chicago, promising to reveal the name she had chosen on the following day's show. Hoda's niece Hannah suggested the names Blake, Ninja, Boom Boom and Charlie, and Hoda went with Charlie, so as not to be "stalkerish" with Blake.
