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?

And IIRC it was the old Dodge Darts that were most seen on the roads dog tracking. Maybe it was a testament of their worth to try and repair after a bad accident Dontknow

yea, IF I go the route of taking on another dog in a few years (hey... I am old and in pain most of the time so I might not)... then I might wait to observe them

I do laugh about the golden girls names still ...I hope those names don't keep coming back so much that I end up going with them out of familiarity
laugh out loud
Well I'm gonna go ahead and apologize right now because I'm already calling your future dogs Blanche and Rose and will long after you name them something else laugh out loud

I've never heard it called that. It was/is called crab walking in my neck of the woods.

I'm not kidding, I wanted to name my cats Blanche and Dorothy but then we ended up getting two boys so we went with Lightning and Thunder. I'd love to have Golden Girl theme names for pets someday though. And with Golden Retrievers...man, those are the perfect names. I bet Blanche and Rose will love their names too Big Grin
