New puppy needs a name!!

webkat5(Z6a MO)February 22, 2007

OK...this little guy needs a very special name....would love some ideas to jog my mind!! (Right now I just call him "Baby Boy")

He was born on Christmas day, but I don't think I necessarily want anything to do with that...not sure...

He is at least 1/2 Border Collie (momma).

Ohhhhhhh my.

Precious or Sweetie come to mind right away.

Will you be keeping him yourself?

How about something Latin?

Mei (May-ee)... means...Mine

Anima....life/soul
Animus...courage/bravery, spirit/soul
Carus....Dear
Animi....at heart
Dulcedo.....Sweetness, pleasantness
Mellitus....Sweet as honey
Uranicus....Heavenly
Canis....Dog....

How's that? LOL!!

He is so gorgeous! I want one, wah!!!
I don't know why, but when I scrolled back up to look at him again I thought of "cotton".
Just gave up cigs and the mind is all a scrambled! LOL!
Good luck with your new baby boy, he sure is adorable.

First thing that came to my mind was "Noah" - haven't the slightest idea why ...

Whatever you decide to call him, can I have him? LOL!

He is too cute ....

I had thought about Dulce (like Dulce de leche), Vera...but it just doesn't roll off the tongue like I want it to.

I had also thought of Noah...that is good too....

For some reason, I am thinking Rudy....

Ok...here are some thoughts from DH :D
Noah is nice though too.

Brewster
Shakespear
Apollo
Zeus
Bodacious (as in the baddest rodeo bull)
Wiggles (how lame!)
Domino
Shister (oh please!)

It needs a name, and I need a snuggle....what a cutie.

We had a Rudy once, Herr Rudolf VonReedcroft, but he was a red dachshund

He's adorable! I have his cousins - two border collie/dalmation girls, Molly and Maggie.

With those red ears, how about Rufus?

Well....I think Rudy (short for Rudolph Valentino) is sticking...he seems to really like it.

Such a silly boy!!

Vera, I loved DH's suggestions...we all think quite a bit alike...I had thought of many of these suggestions!

I like Rufus...but for some reason, I like names that I can shorten to the "e" sound on the end.

Thanks guys!!!

Little thing had a rough time of it from the beginning...was the runt, his brothers kept kicking him off momma (kind of like Rudolf the Reindeer), then he was chuck full of every worm imaginable and to top it all off, he must be on Albon for coccidia...

The cute little thing...I wrap his little pill in a tiny bit of cheese and he sits for it, takes it gently, swallows and it is gone!

He doesn't wine or cry, just waits patiently for just about everything...OH SO wonderful!!

Wish I could share him!!

webkat - such a sweet face - so precious and cute.

I am at a loss for a different name other than "Baby Boy" cause he is such a cute little "baby boy"... How about getting ideas on the net? Google - Dog names and one may hit you.

It is officially Rudolf (Rudy), but pronounced Rrrrrudy (with a rolled "r")...he really likes it when I do that...

He is such a love...

We had to go down to the cellar last night (was very scary...tornado passed right by me) and he was so calm, cool and collected...didn't wine or struggle one little bit as I held him on my lap for about 20 minutes in the cold icky cellar.
