Need Suggestions for Pet Name -- Update 7/29 - She's Doing GREAT!
Well, I'm at it again...

My dd and the little girl she babysits sold lemonade yesterday using a sign that stated that they would donate their proceeds to our local animal shelter. So off we go with the money, a new bag of dog food, and a couple of other items...

And I've just fallen in love with a little female stray that just got dropped off yesterday. They don't know what kind she is, and a look at the dog book doesn't help. She's white, possibly three months old, and might weigh ten pounds. She has a couple of brown spots...one around her eye and others elsewhere. But she's mostly white. They wouldn't let me see her up close (in case the owners walked in and thought I was taking "their" dog), but I don't think she's got very big paws...hopefully she will stay under 30 pounds.

She won't be available to adopt until Saturday, unless her owner comes to claim her. I'm seriously, seriously thinking of adopting her...much to my dh's chagrin. After all, we just got the rats... But he likes her looks...

Anyhow, what names do y'all like?

FYI...my other two dogs' names are Aubie (cause we're Auburn fans) and Pele (as in the famous soccer player...he's my dd's dog).

I'm kicking around the names Mia (as in Hamm...famous female soccer player) and Daisy.

What'cha think (other than I'm tenderhearted but crazy)??

How about "new giant pain in the ass?"

Or just how about some pics?!

I don't have any pictures. They have her in a cage that is enclosed by another wire fence that people have to stay outside of.

I don't look at my animals as pains. They have all brought so much joy to my family's life. I can't imagine not having them.

I hope that came off as sounding like the joke I meant it to be

I like Daisy!

I have a Barnum and a Bailey ... because it's like a circus, and a Reba (I think like McIntyre because she's orange, but we didn't name her).

And if I take the stray at the nursery, I think I'll call him Claude. No reason, just Claude.

I met a man and his dd the other day at the park with a new golden puppy they named "Bruce". I thought that was cute.
I thought if I ever got a bassett hound I would name him "Fred", I don't know why, but that it sounds cute.
Hard to name without seeing pictures!

Oh, you're fine. I'm sorry I got defensive. I just know that three dogs sounds like a lot.

All of our dogs (we've only had 3) have been named "Buddy", we just really like that name.

I really like my aunt and uncle's dog's name, "Trudy".

My dh had a dog named, "Kellie", growing up.

I like both of the names you've picked too, hard decision! Good Luck!
