View Full Version : OT- Another puppy to name

11-07-2006, 12:37 AM

This past weekend I made the trip up to visit my puppy. Actually I picked her out. She is still at the breeders until the Saturday after Thanksgiving. She is a little Cairn Terrier. The most fiesty out of the three girls. I am sooo excited that I am finally getting my dog. It only took two years to find the right breeder.

Well now I have to name the little :twisted:

I had made a long list of names over the past few months and narrowed it down to these:

Fudge (my father's suggestion, of course named after the book that I read him every night while in the fourth grade; "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume, and the sequel, SuperFudge!)


I am really liking the name Greta, but Ginger is just as good. I am having hard time naming her Fudge, since I already have two cats named after foods: Cookie & Oreo.

Any suggestions?

Of course I have to post a few pictures of the little devil.

What a cutie! :muah:

I vote for Greta too, but that's partly because my college best friend's name is Greta. :roflhard: :roflhard:

Cairn Terrier? Her name has to be Dorothy, or maybe Glenda. She is sooooooooo cute!

I just thought of another one. Did anyone else see or read Wicked? What about Elphaba and call her Elfie?[/u]

:heart: awww to cute!! I saw sparky looking at the pictures.. out of the list I like Zoe

What a cutie! :heart: Out of the names on your list, I think she seems most like a Gretchen.

She's adorable. :heart: I don't think she looks like a fudge. I like Greta or Gretchen.

I had a German Shepherd named Gretchen, so I can't relate. I like the Wizard of Oz connections, though. :teehee:

What a sweetie! :heart:

I think she looks like a Ginger. Plus it seems like it would be an easy name to call out, and it goes well with Cookie and Oreo.

She is TOTALLY a Greta!! :hug: :hug: :hug:

I agree! Plus, I just like dog names that aren't the usual dog names.

I love Zoe or Gretta. What a little doll LOL.

11-07-2006, 01:23 PM
She looks like a Muffin to me! So cute!

11-07-2006, 01:49 PM
I like "fluff bucket" or "dust mop." :teehee: That's what I'd be calling the dog anyway, no matter what I named it.

I am a real, real doggie lover! I am mommy to a shih tzu, named Annie Rose. I've owned a Trixie, Baby, Betsy, Molly, Johnny, Maggie, Snowball, Fuzzball, Charlie Brown, and so many more animals, too many too count.

I'm no brain when it comes to names, but most of my animals tend to respond to names sounding like ey on the ends like Mikey, etc.

I love the name Zoe! The puppy is a doll and will be a wonderful addition to your clan no matter what the name! :muah: :muah: :muah:
