Title: Help me, please!
Post by: Vivian on May 03, 2004, 08:42:35 PM
We have had a new puppy for 9 days now and cannot come up with a suitable name.  He is 4 pounds and won't get much over 7.  Is black, long hair and very fiesty.  We have tried all race related names we could think of but nothing really fits something so small.  I even went to a book of names and just nothing works.  Can anyone help????   Thanks.

If it has a red collar, call him Dale!

Or, if he's feisty enough, call him Intimidator!

I have a cat about that size. His name is SPUNKY but my wife insists on calling him the "Little Bugger" :lol:

I have been calling him Little Black Dog but haven't come up with anything that really fits him.  I do like Little Bugger.  I tried Racer and Chaser and have reasons for passing up lots of names:  neighbor named Dale, son in law named Jr and or Bubba, had a dog named Speedway once, only ONE Intimidator imo, not colorful enough to be Marbles, Don hates Tony or TS, Jamie, Smoke, Winston, Lug Nut, Pit Stop, and wants a one syllable word.  You know that spousal thing I spoke of yesterday-we agree to disagree.  Poor little dog, meanwhile he is nameless.  At this point we are almost agreed upon Jasper shortened to Jas.  What do you guys think?  He is sort of like a little engine the ways he goes and goes... :wink:

I think Jasper is a good name for him.  Lou's mother used to have a dog named that.  

Personally, I like Winston, but I can't remember if you said you had one named that before.  It would be a nice tribute to RJR.  :)

Benny isn't bad, but how about honoring ole DW and naming the pup JAWS? :lol:

Knowing what it's like to have anew puppy arounds, how about Dammit?


Title: Help me, please!

Been calling him "No, no, no" a lot lately and Dammit.  Everytime we think we have something, after trying it a few times it just doesn't fit.  I have never had so much trouble naming a Little Squirt and yes, we have tried that one, too.  NOTHING seems to fit.  I am going crazy.  I am going to try Benny tonight but can't go with Jaws.  Still working on it so thanks, Everyone, for your help.  Keep throwing in names and we will keep trying.

You know what my suggestion is?  Buddy Wayne!

Hope that's a great name for a humble country dog :lol:

By the way, this post makes me a veteran, I think!  Can't believe how quickly this happened!
