Our Newest Addition

Some may say we are completely crazy. I may have to agree with them after what I did tonight. I found this cutest puppy on KSL. We have been wanting a dog for years and we finally convinced everybody it was a good thing for us to do. Well, I went and held this baby tonight and just knew I had to have her. We don't have a name for her yet and I have no idea what I'm doing. What do you all think we should name her? Yes, it's a girl. Also, give me some suggestions on what I need and what I need to do. We are bringing her home next week so I can have some time to prepare for her to come home. Isn't she adorable?

I've always liked the name Ryan for a girl dog. Bavmorda is also good.

I'm jealous, I want a dog so bad but James won't let me get one.

As for me helping you with a girl name...well I can't even pick one for a human. Adam is good with animal names! Try him. I am excited for your addition! Tthis will break you in for a child of your own one day! Congrats!

Yay congrats!!! I love doggies!! Just maks sure you have a little kennel for her to sleep in {make her do it, even though she may cry the first few nights... you don't want to have to do it when she is older} and food and a vet appt and you are good. As long as she has food, love and shots, thats about it.... oh and a colar and name tag :) I want to meet her soon!!!

I like Harley. But you shouldn't name them something that you can't yell really loud from your porch at night.... even as a nickname. :)

My Mom left some fun names on My Family for you, here I'll paste them over for you:
I don't know how to email you on your blog so I hope you get this for your little babys name. It looks like she is a chiwawa (sp). How about Carmen or Miranda or Eidth, Lucy, Ethel, Little Miss, Baby, Gwen, Dittle. She is pretty cute just give her lots of love and little cheweys don't hurt. They kind of help her from chewing on shoes, and anything else she thinks she might need to. I thought of another name how about Lola or tinkerbell?
I will need to teach her how to be techie. I am so happy for your new addition. She will help you not be so lonely while Ryan is gone!

Oh fun! We got a puppy about a year and a half ago. It's fun but so much work. Be prepared to be tired and upset. :)
Take Dari's advise and make her sleep in the kennel. The crying will drive you crazy at first but it will do good to train her.
Good luck!

Ooooooo . . . cute! Now you have someone to comfort you in Ryan's absence. My secret dog names are Harris or Dawkins, but I think she looks more like an Olivia. How was Sundance? I looked at online pics of Ashton, Paris and (my personal favorite) Joseph Gordon-Levitt and thought of you. Hope you had fun!

How exciting! I have always loved the name Roxy for a girl dog.

Seth and Abbie Ollerton said...

I think you should name it after Ryan's favorite rockband, Nickleback. Yeah, that has a nice ring to it. Cute dog, can't wait to have one of my own someday. Congrats guys!

Dari said...

I just noticed that that lady suggested Lola.... good grief people!? Why does everyone think that's a dog name?! ha ha

Jaime Williams said...

What did you end up naming her?? I love dogs, so I'm happy for you. Is she full chiahuahua?? We are getting another dog when we move into our house!! And I want to send Brooke a dog and just make James deal with it.
