She’s a springer spaniel and will be ours soon – she’s getting her first round of puppy shots on Friday. She’s purebred and we will be able to register her with the AKC. We’re VERY excited to get her… Velvet needs a cuddle-buddy and friend to play with during the day/night when we’re at work/sleeping. Pete is really looking forward to going all out training her to be a bird dog – between him and Bailey, one of his chocolate Labs, she should turn out very well. And I’m just plain excited to have a puppy to play with. Her current owners call her “Lefty” but Pete and I have been searching for other names for our new girl. Some possibilities so far include:
Winchester (Winnie): Winchester is a brand of rifles and shotguns Pete enjoys. One of his chocolate Labs is named Trigger and he likes the hunting theme.
Caliber (Callie): This name also goes with the hunting theme, but I like it as well because I love the Dodge Calibers. The only problem with this is the nickname, Callie, also happens to be the first name of one of the current owners (we’re buying “Lefty” from a couple here in Moses Lake).
Daiquiri: Unique and uncommon. Also cute.
Lady: As in, Lady and the Tramp. Cliche and popular, yes. But also cute.
And a few points of interest:
