LAST CHANCE TO NAME MY DOG

Picture 1320We are less than 24 hours away from picking up our new puppy, a female black golden doodle. We have really enjoyed everyone’s suggestions for a name. The top three on the poll are Pepper, Luna, and Scout. Since those names generated 70 percent of the votes last week, we decided to ask for a final vote among the top three below.

  1. Geeba: My vote for Pepper was not based on color; I just like the sound better and the implication is spicy. My neighbor has a fluffy all white small poodle she named Snowball, the dog is professionally trimmed twice a month to look like almost like it is made of snowballs.

    I don’t think that reflects any racism or bigotry. Racism and bigotry are demeaning, unless the name of the dog itself is a racial slur or is demeaning to others (for example naming a dog “faggot”), IMO naming a dog after a trait of appearance is not demeaning to the dog or anybody else.

  2. Eh, using a little sarcasm here people. Could care less what one calls their dog or other captive animal. (Excuse me, domestic pet). But don’t try to sell me the idea that naming a black dog “Pepper” isn’t based on it’s color. that’s all legalese lawyer banter.

    If you really want to get your panties in a knot look up the name of the beloved black dog in the 1950’s movie “The Dam Busters”. Oh, yes. Now you don’t even have to look it up, you know what it is right now. But you don’t believe it and the doubt compels you to research it anyway. Then you reflect on what it all means. Anything?

    And the Moesha bit – c’mon.

  3. Plus folks these are dogs; animals. Naming conventions are not as they are for persons.

    1) Dog: Fido; Fluffy
    2) Horse: Seattle Slew; Affirmed
    3) Chicken: Clucky; Barn32-row49-cage802-000912
    4) Guinea Pig: Sample-2013-539M

  4. G.Mason – That is a hilarious video – and Fenton is yet another poor (albeit distinguished-sounding) doggy name choice!😉

  5. Darren Smith – “4) Guinea Pig: Sample-2013-539M”? Aw c’mon, we’re talking about pets here. Think of the children!

  6. I voted for Luna…

    But if you want a last minute change, the golden yellow ribbon on her neck looks like the flower petals of a Black-eyed Susan flower… so I still opt for Susie! She is, after all, in a flower pot. A girl’s gotta bloom where she’s planted, right?

    She is SO adorably cute! Give her a little hug from me!
    🙂

  7. I suspect that she’s naming herself and taking her time… Welcome to your new home, sweet pup. (She is absolutely adorable.)
