A New Face

I went to see some puppies today, they were very nice puppies.  I had a terrible time choosing!  I kept trying to pick out the one i thought was prettier, but every time I tried to look at him this little devil kept crawling in my lap.  How could I say no?








He is an 8 week old male Border Collie and he needs a name.  Any suggestions?  So far we've come up with:

Granger
Xander
Mason

  1. Congratulations on your new puppy. He is beautiful and I can feel those puppy teeth from here! Sounds like he picked you and you took a chance. How about "Chance"? Wait, I'm voting twice -- second choice is "Tucker." Have fun!

  2. It does'nt look like you chose him but he chose you.

  3. Oh Kris, I am so happy for you!! A house is not a home without a dog in it -- and now a new chapter in your life begins. I can see why you couldn’t pass him up for the one you thought was maybe “prettier’. That little face just grabs at your heart. He looks like a real “keeper” for sure. Oh the fun in store for you and him. My two cents for a proper name: Keeper, Shiloh, True, Morgan. Doesn’t the puppy breath get you? 

  4. I think he looks like a Sully-short for Sullivan. I don't know why I think that but he is adorable! I want to smell his puppy breath!! I know. Gross right??!! LOL!!

  8. I am so completely thrilled for you. I like Xander.

    Another fun idea would be to find a word synonymous with "fate" since it seems fate played a role in him choosing you.

  12. Isn't it funny how it works sometimes? And how it's meant to be I think :) he looks like a perfect border collie and like he has a ton of energy!

  15. Haaa! When i read this i said "What are the chances of that happening?" My first thought was Chance.
    What ever name you pick, i'm sure it will suit him. Congrats!

  16. He's just adorable! All my adopted pets came with names. I'd never be able to pick a name for one ;-)

  17. He's adorable! And I see you got your PC Virus eliminated :)
    Names; Jack, Brodie, Jasper.

  18. I'm so happy for you. He is the cutest boy! I'm terrible at picking names. For a dog that likes the water, I like the name "Splash".

  19. OMG! Cutest puppy ever! Butter wouldn't melt in that angelic mouth! I like Sully, Chance, and Keeper, but you're the one who has to live with it. Pick a name before he becomes Hey You! Best wishes for a long and happy relationship!

  20. I am so happy for you. Best of luck with your new buddy. I have always liked the name "Ryder"

  21. He's sooooo cute, love that he did the picking. He's marked like a dog I had years ago. So the name Coach came to my mind.

  22. He's adorable. I can see why you couldn't walk away from him. I'm partial to Jake. I always think of someone down-to-earth and friendly when I hear the name.

  23. By any name, he is filling the hole in your heart... well done, Kris!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Congratulations, Kris! He's certainly a little cutie-patootie. I like Jake, and also Thunder and Badger. Maybe you'll have to wait and see what pops into your head in a few days! Gosh, he's a pretty boy. Adorable markings, too, like he got into the white paint. Maybe Dutch, like Dutch Boy Paint :)

  25. When a puppy picks you it's meant to be. Best wishes for many many many happy years together. How about Bart? Congrats!!

  26. Not sure why it didn't take my comment. But Congratulations if it shows up two times!!! For boy's I like Rance, Ranger or Rawhide or Stormy if it was a rainy day!!!! Many years of happiness for all family members

  27. Congratulations from Gilly and me! He looks perfect! My suggestion is Chaser. Have fun!!

  29. Oh, so glad for you! I'm glad you went with the snuggler. My two current dogs aren't very snuggly and I miss it. For a name, I really like Ninergirl's suggestion of Keeper.

  30. Oh I am late on this because of being out of town....he will make his own name won't he?
