Please help! We need some fresh ideas in naming our new puppy.
I took me 5 years to get this 8 week old puppy. I had time to think of a name...but I didn't.
I have been working on my DH to get a puppy for 5 years. It was always one excuse after another. First it was...wait till DD is 8 years old...she is now 13. Then it was...wait till DS is 8...he is now 10. Two years ago I enlisted the kids in begging for a puppy with me. A little over a year ago DH finally said yes, IF HE could pick the breed. OK dear.
You are now saying, "wow, I am glad these two people found each other, that way, they are not screwing up two other people's lives."
It took months for him to research every dog book and the internet. He decided on an Australian Terrier. Last fall he searched and found one...we went to go meet him...he was deaf. So he wasn't sure about that. It took me 2 weeks to talk him into it...we went back to adopt him...and he was gone. So the search began again. Then right after Thanksgiving last year, DH fell out of a tree, breaking his @ss and shoulder...he is still not 100%...so puppy search come to a stop. In January he thought he was well enough to start the puppy search again. He finally found one...here she is...the newest member of our family...a female Blue & Tan Australian Terrier...when she is older, she will lose some of her black...and develop a scruffy mane around her face...full grown, she will be slightly larger than our cat...
We need some help in choosing a name...2 names...a first and middle.
There are some names OFF LIMITS...former pets or other family member's pets:
Cocaine (really...Teflon Steve's white cat)
And our current pet cat:
For the puppy my DS likes girl names:
My DD likes names:
My DH likes Australian names:
I like clever names:
Dandy Lion (when she is older, she will have a lion-like mane)
Any suggestions? We are leaning toward Sydney for a first name...but we need a middle name too. What do you think?
