I am not so creative, BUT I am looking for an inanimate object that is caramel in color and would be good for a dog's name. Any ideas?

XH and I used to talk about naming pets after alcohol. You know, a Scottish terrier named Scotch, a poodle named Champagne, a hound named Bourbon.

What about a boozy name?

Not quite an inatimate object but how about Butterscotch? That's caramel colored.

OMG I am SOOO opposed to alcohol! Joking! I think that is a great idea. Regarding her personality she is a rescue so she has a lot of instability, but she is sooo sweet and I can tell she is very loyal.

Do you know what, GA, I actually thought about that name because she looks butterscotch in color, but the name doesn't really flow.

I believe that dogs should have "people" names, so I wait a bit to find one that fits. I have:

Willie,
Norm,
Katie,
Bert.

I like Nougat a lot and was thinking of something like "nougie" with the "g" as in "luge". She is a girl though and that sounds masculine. So cute though!

We did opposite names; our first mastiff was Tiny. Our (black) Belgian Sheepdog was Whitie.

When growing up we named our dogs after alcohol because my father owned a bar; we had Bourbon, Schaefer and Whiskey.

Sad in Az,
I adore Mastiffs. Have you seen my two new pups? My Stella is 10 yo this year. Still hanging in there, but like a 90 yo woman.

Hhhumph!!!

That is a GREAT name!!

I had a horse named Snickers. She was a chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail with a white blaze and three white socks. She looked just like a Snicker's bar.

Come to find out, Mrs. Mars named the candy bar after her favorite horse, Snickers.

Dog names should be two syllables and easy to yell.

Or can be shortened to two syllables..

Whisky, yes. Scotch, no.

Taffy yes, Butterscotch no.

Hmm. Sandy?

These are all great names. I have always gone with unique names and I am really liking Remy. Great idea to take a brand of something! I am still going to keep thinking and taking ideas, and I will toss this one around today with her.

Kajem, Sterling actually engaged her in a little play today, which I am surprised that he did so this early on. It made me happy though because I just want him to have the companionship that he has been missing. Also, supposedly she never played with toys before but after watching him chase his around the house she decided to do the same a couple of times. I can tell she does not know "how" to play but really wants to play. She will catch on.

I disagree with this philosophy. I did not want to find out later on that my beloved pet shared a name with an asshole.

Since you have chosen to name her Josie, any chance you will be getting any pussycats?

You don't have to announce, but announcing it is sort of like an apology...
Or an "in yer face" kinda thing.


Your mileage may vary... in accordance with the prophecy.
