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?

"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."

So far all of the dogs we've had in my lifetime have had names that started with a C and in alphabetical order too somehow(cue Twilight Zone music).

So far we've had:

Candy
Chip
Cindy(short for Cinnamon)

And now we have Clifford.

For a little white Shih Tzu mix he has the power of a German Shepherd. LMAO I'm a 200+ lb guy and he drags me to the gate to go in the yard for his walks.

As for the topic at hand, I would suggest

Serena and Venus

Quote from SelfRighteousDbag(Romeo from CAG) :
From my own experiences, he uses and abuses the sites he is a member of. He cares about no one but himself. If there's a deal ANYWHERE, he is the person to buy 100x of whatever it is to resell for profit, and usually get the deal pulled or canceled.

He lives near me. A couple years ago, he bought five copies of a game on clearance at target closest to me. Bragged about it here then soon found out the trade value wasn't worth a 'flip'. When I called him on it for being a scumbag for buying out the stock, he PM'ed me and told me he would now purposely return them to a target far away from me so I can't get a copy for myself.
Whine more, please.

Themes are good. Greek gods. Flowers. Months - like April and May. We had a biblical streak here which I'm debating continuing. Scratchchin

from what I have found a two syllable name works well the first gets their attention then they know you are talking to them.

Abby over Bob, Briscoe over Rose, Trapper over Fred etc..

Biscuit

My default name for ANY animal other than my own is Biscuit regardless of what the animal's real name is.

You should name your future dogs Autumn and Summer. Autumn would be the good dog, probably your favorite. Summer would be a girl dog so you could call her a bitch. She would probably also pee everywhere and you could yell at her all of the time. Autumn would be awesome and you could be like "Autumn, you're such a good girl, yes you aaare! Wtf? Bad Summer! Bad dog! Stop pooping on the floor!"

I say go with Tango and Cash.

But don't listen to me. The last dog I named was a female beagle named Kevin.
