Was thinking about you naming your pup. You said you couldn't use DIXIE because of the CHICKS but you could still use DIXIE and say you named her after the new movie "Because of WINN DIXIE . My 83 year old mother wants to go see that show. :D

This is my first post on this new forum. So far I don't like it much. I need to get into archives and don't know how to do it. I promised someone I would print something off for them...guess I told a fib. Used to be easy now it's impossible!

Yeh, I just saw the preview to Winn Dixie. That might be good. My husband can't remember to call her Dixie anyway, so we need to come up with something else. The people we got her from called her "Cuddles"--cuz she likes to be with you. He has been calling her "Cuddles, Puddles and Cigars!"

Why not "Sadie" or "Shelly" or "Hermione", Sally Anne (ever read and/or see Harry Potter?) Hope this helps.

Our dog is Scarlett (O'Hara), but when I'm disgusted with her I can't ever think of the right name. I always call her Savannah or Saratoga or Sarsparilla before "Scarlett" ever comes to mind.

We tend to keep dog's names short. We have had at the same time, three stock dogs named Pat, Cat, and Toot.

We now have a Pete, so we can't have a name close to that one. This pup is a lot of fun and we are enjoying her immensely. She is light on her feet and fast. Really sticks by you when you are doing something. If I was any hand on here I would use her picture by my name, but...I can hardly use this new forum. Hope I get more comfortable with it.

Seems like in the movie, "Big Jake", John Wayne just calls his dog, "Dog". That would be an easy name to remember.

Dog names and the new format

Postby Steve » Sun Feb 13, 2005 9:49 pm

I am just getting used to it myself. Part of the reason I first posted on Ranchers.net was the easy format., the other was because Disagreeable was so wrong!,, I was always intimidated by the others that used this format. But I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks.

As for dog manes, My first dog was spot. He was competely black no spots, guess i just read to many Dick and Jane books, see spot run,, :) another was jingles, (Christmas present)

My fist dog as an adult was Tramp because my wife wouldn't let me call him Bum, My dog now is Gypsy (same reason) Both were pound puppies. and damn good dogs.

faster , the more you use this site the easier it gets. I find it alot faster and you can scroll down thru the posts with out having to open each one. Hang in there it does get better.
As for dog names there just seems to be one to fit. I've had a Blackie, a Toby. and now Jack. also a Snuffy that I got when dating my wife and quit chewing. :cowboy:

Well, she can't be "Blackie" because she is brown. She can't be 'Tippy" because she is bob-tailed. She can't be 'Stub' because she is a she. She can't be 'Jack' because that is my husbands name!!

The other dog that came from the same place we called 'ZIP' and 'ZIP the Rip' cause she was that, too. I thought about calling this dog 'Rip', so maybe that would work. But I don't want her to be a 'Rip' really. I thought about 'Peg', that is a lot different than 'Pete'. I will mention that to my husband. This dog is really gutsy, just like our old dog. We think she will be a good one. She already barks when someone drives in. Pete would just help them take whatever they needed. Don't think this dog will do that, the old dog sure never did. She was a good watchdog. Actually, a little too good.

my husband likes to keep dogs names simple, easy to remember and usually HUMAN....we've had Jake, Janie, Jill and Justin (notice a pattern??) anyway, jake always seemed to answer to "dammit" better than his own name....wouldn't have something to do with the fact that that certain expletive usually followed his name from my hubby's mouth, would it???
