Names for Golden Retrievers... or any dogs for that matter

OK, I am hoping that Bea lives a nice long time, but she is already about 13 and had a very hard first 5 years.

A friend in MI has goldens in breeding age and for the last 2 Decembers I just fall for the pics of the puppies. Bea won't tolerate any other dog in the house so I cannot get one (or 2 )now. If they are still breeding in a few years after I no longer have her I think I may want to drive to MI for one or two.

I'd probably want sisters.

My mind already plays games with naming them.

First I thought..
Sanity (as my dogs have been my sanity...grounding me) if I got one.
If I got 2 though???

I had a golden when growing up, named Misty.

I saw one of Daisy's (the friend's golden...momma) puppies on FB and she was named Abby Rose which I thought was pretty

The names Blanche and Rose popped into my mind and cracks me up. On one hand I don't know that I'd want silly names but I keep thinking about that. *will wait for the joke part to sink in


Since dogs are precious to me I thought Sapphire and Ruby.. but it sounds... hmm ehhhhh



What would you name them if you could?

Earlier this summer we passed a house of another golden. Found out that while the owner had the female, her next door neighbor had her brother.
Bella enjoyed playing with both and has played with the female a few times since.
The lady loves dogs and loves spoiling them. She saw Loki and said she wanted a second golden..so I gave her the info on the breeder I got Bella and Loki from.
They have the English Creams as well as an American golden female they breed.
So she went and got one of the American goldens a couple of weeks ago laugh out loud

Today we got to all meet...
Bella, Loki and Brodie all have the same dad.
First pic is Bella and the brother and sister.
Second pic is Lokie and Brodie

Yeah I'm bummed about it too. Known that dog since they first got him. (Boomer)
They had another at the time, but I've forgotten that dog.
They still have one dog, (Carmen) she is quite a bit younger, but I wonder if they will get another dog soon for Carmen to hang with. Carmen replaced the dog that I can't remember the name of.
