Name That Puppy!
Yesterday I was reminded of where all this licking comes from -- Cadi's dad, Marshall. Marshall's mom wrote, "... I have always called Marshall the "licky freak" so I fear Cadi comes by that gene naturally..." So, cleanliness is a family trait -- wish that particular trait extended to my human family members!
Puppies are doing so well but they are a talkative bunch. This is, no doubt, Marshall's fault as well! Cadi is a girl who likes to share her opinion and apparently the puppies are starting early. Everyone is doing so well that I moved to my bed last night, which is located about ten feet from the whelping box, as I have previously mentioned. The puppies are a chatty bunch and their every noise wakes me up. I literally got up 6 - 7 times last night to make sure everyone was okay. Usually it was just someone practicing an opinion but occasionally someone had wandered away from the rest and so was sending one of those puppy SOS signals.
Cali asked if Geneva does better with low flow nipples and we think she does. The rear of the Dairy Bar is where the prime seating is -- no sucking is required as the milk practically gushes. Geneva does better in one of the forward seats where the milk flow is less abundant.
Today I wanted to share more names (with comments) from Elizabethanne; I share them with her permission. I am sure you will agree that she is quite entertaining -- and good!
"Going Places (gee, where'd I get THAT idea???)
Global Affair (any of the names you picked for the puppies are nicely
Golden Jubilee (Still working that party theme)
Gimme Shelter (Mick or Jagger)
Gideon's Trumpet (call name Henry, cuz Henry Fonda played Gideon in the
movie; or some appropriate legal name)
Just kidding on this one: Groundhog Day (cuz didn't you just HAVE a bunch
Get Your Groove On (Dancer?)
Greased Lightning (Danny)
Gold Rush (Rush)
Golly Gee Whillikers (call name Will or G)
Going My Way (Bing)
G.I. Jane (Jane or Demi)
Go West (West)
Get Real (call name Truth)
Gidget Goes Hawaiian (if you had a puppy going there this would be cute!)
The name you'll want to give all the pups by the time they are 8 weeks: Get
