Decisions, Decisions

There are few things that cause such disagreement in our home as deciding on what to name a puppy. First, I must tell you...we are getting a boxer puppy :-). Maybe as soon as May!

Now, the discussion on puppy names has begun. Let me give you a little history. When we got Snickers there was quite the disagreement over what to name our adorable little girl. The boys came up with names like Saber, Fang, and Killer. The girls came up with names like Sunshine, Flower and Rose. Needless to say, the two parties were not going to come to an agreement...until...until the name Snickers was suggested. Upon hearing that name, all parties came to an agreement.

Now, fast forward ten years and add three more kids to the decision making process. You can imagine the difficulty in coming up with a name for our new puppy. Here are some of the names that have been considered: Bella, Piggy (wouldn't it be fun to call out the door, "Here, Piggy"), iDog 2.0, and Ali (as in the boxer). Finally we have come to a near unanimous decision (it's impossible to get a unanimous decision with eight kids). We are reasonably certain that we are going to name the new puppy....


Don't you love it? If not, oh well, it's not your puppy :-D


  1. I very much approve!

    Your sister Kathy

  2. Actually Mumford is a good dog name. iDog 2.0 is pretty good though. How about Charlieissocoollike?

  3. I was waiting for your comment! I knew you would approve. Molly is beside herself with the name choice :-)

  4. Tina, that would have been a good one too :-)

  5. MUMFORD???? It sounds like you don't like the little guy before you even get him. Remember the U of M professor Mulford Q. Sibley.


  6. Don't know Mr. Sibley, but I do know (of) Mumford & Sons :-)


Thanks for visiting. We would love to hear from you!
