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

68,578 4,730 December 30, 2015 at 10:27 AM in Question
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?

I had a fish named fishy once. Embarrassment

You could have at least gone with DOG (pronounced "dee-oh-gee")

I've always picked a name for the cats after observing their personality for a couple of days.
But what if you get knocked for a loop? I got a new female pet 2 months ago and have been calling her just about everything but nothing fits. Dontknow Personality is like nothing I've ever seen in any animal. I'm not a fan of naming animals after inanimate objects. Back to dogs....

Marisa Tomei: (petting dog) What's his name?
Christian Slater: I don't know. He hasn't told me yet.

All three of my cats have human names but the names fit their personalities.

"Happiness and depression are both feelings, just like joy and anger. It's not feelings that give us problems. It's what we do with them that makes the difference."

"When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. They told me I didn't understand the assignment and I told them they didn't understand life."

Very clever name for a Golden Retriever. I had a neighbor years ago who was called Augie, it was short for Augustino.
