The gentleman and the pup below were sitting outside one of our local drinking establishments. And everyone who went by was stopping to pet the puppy, so naturally we had to too. But when we asked about the pup, we got a surprise: most people are happy to tell us the dog’s name, but may or may not know the breed. This guy knew the breed (part German shorthaired pointer, part Labrador retriever), but the puppy was so newly adopted that the family hadn’t yet decided on a name!
Well, I’m putting the word out to all my readers… all, what, five of you? 🙂 Suggest names for this pup in the comments section. The pup’s dad is going to come look at ideas, although no promises whether he’ll use any of them. Guess you’ll just have to come up with something so awe-inspiringly (aww-inspiringly?) appropriate that he’ll have to use it, right? [Edit: the pup is a girl, and my memory is just as weak as ever.]
Three more pictures, and of course the comments section, after the break.
This is our dog and “he” is a she! Can’t wait for the ideas!!! She also has a black tail with a white tip at the end!!!
Considering the black & white, I’m going to have to go with Domino.
I was thinking typical black/white names like Oreo or Barack (before it turned out he was a she), but for some reason, Jezebel sticks in my head. Totally unfair as she’s just adorable, but there you go.
Got 3 suggestions – In honor of To Kill A Mockingbird’s anniversary Scout, Harper(although I think it sounds too masculine. Also too, she looks like a Penny to me.
Don’t know why, but she looks like Bella to me.
I was thinking Lola. Which, when I got down here, kinda sounds like Bella.
Domino has a James Bond thing, too. Is she a Bond Girl?
I’d go with Zoe, myself. Short and easy to call.
She’s adorable! How about Phoebe?
Domino is a great idea!
We decided to name her Luna! Sometimes I feel it might be short for lunatic. She’s quite a handful.
Awesome. Send us a few pictures of Luna once she’s grown up, if you remember, and I’ll post them in a followup.
Luna seems like a proper name for the young pup. ?
I agree. And I love your email address. 🙂
