Please welcome Mr "No name" to my family

Sun Jul 31, 2011 7:42 pm

Well after a rocky few months, with a miscarriage and the stress of TTC we (read I) decided it was time that we got a puppy that we had always wanted.
We did a Sunday road trip and had to chose from 3 little Chocolate and 3 little Black Pruebred Labradors. We were set on a Male so that narrowed it down to 2 Black and 1 Chocolate puppy to chose from.
I don't know why but this little fella caught my eye, he was all dirty (they were outside with their mum and dad) and he just came up to us and sat by our feet, every other little puppy licked, bite and ran around but this little fella just sat there and was content being patted.
So we put a deposit down and collect him on Thursday night after he gets microchipped and final vaccinations.

Don't mind that horrible face/hair/no makeup look I'm sporting I figure the cute puppy makes up for it!

So now I need help! What should we name him?

Awww Abbie, he is BEAUTIFUL!!!! :heart: :heart: :heart:

What a gorgeous little furbaby :) I love labs, they are incredible dogs, so kind and loyal.

Friends of ours have a similar looking puppy called 'Cooper', which suits him to a tee. His runner-up name was Angus, but he was also almost Oliver, Mac, Sheldon and Toby. Really though, your little guy is so cute, any name in the world would suit him :mrgreen:

Dan my parents have a jack Russell called Cooper so that name is out!

Your right though he is so cute any name would suit him.

I like Saxon, but open to other names (gotta be so careful not to pick anything that could be potential baby name!

Ali - Toby is the name of DH's exwifes dog.....so that's a no!

Riss - Chris doesn't want Ernie cause we decided to only get one and the name isn't as cute without Bert

Manda - DH thinks ebony is a girls name!

Looks like he'll just be called puppy at this rate! :)

Good suggestions, I'll take them back to DH and see what he says. I should confirm the puppy we are getting is the one in the pic he is Black!

Some black horse name suggestions I saw online: Liqorice, Jet, Sambuca (Sam), Sirius (hehehe, Sirus Black = Black Dog...Harry Potter hehe), Onyx, Ninja, Merlin, Shadow.

Or what about Harley, Axle, Holden, Diesel, Jack (Black Jack?), Ted, Clyde, Chester, Charlie? Eek, I should stay away from pet name websites :lol:

Our black dog is Jett, after his colour, but he suits it well because he is also incredibly quick and clever.

Wow! Such great names!
Let's go through the list
Dan - out of the first horse list I like shadow but we already suggested that and DH isn't keen!
Harley is very close to my nephews name Harlan
Holden is cute but considering we drive HSV's its probably not a good idea!
Charlie Brown is what DH's ex wife called her kid so definitely not that!
Cadbury is cute considering DH LOVES his chocolate!

DH and I are pretty set on SAXON ATM I think it just suits him!
Can't wait to get him home on Thursday!
