> Kicking the dog
> The process of restarting the watchdog timer's counter is sometimes called "kicking the dog." The appropriate visual metaphor is that of a man being attacked by a vicious dog. If he keeps kicking the dog, it can't ever bite him. But he must keep kicking the dog at regular intervals to avoid a bite. Similarly, the software must restart the watchdog timer at a regular rate, or risk being restarted.
It does seem to be the defacto word used in must watchdog implementations so I would keep it.
