I am so happy, I've been hoping the time would be right for quite some time now. So happy for you and she is beautiful! I hope this next chapter is a good one for you. If it helps I always wanted to name a brindle girl Aspen….it's pretty, but powerful. Perhaps you can take the boy name you picked and put a girl spin on it? Keep the pics and posts coming
You got the little brindle girl! She is such a cutie. I love brindles, the next B we get will definitely be a brindle. I didn't have a name for Kaia (we thought boy as well) until she got here and even then considered changing it
Ironically, our friends who picked the puppies up loved your girl when they met her and actually told Tad that if for some reason he needed a back up they would take her in an instant. I am so glad your baby is finally home and I'm sure she'll have the perfect name soon.
Thanks, everyone! I'm SO pleased with her!
Thanks for all the great name ideas! I like them all! Naming is always hard, but this is even trickier because she is from the VV litter. It's a challenge to come up with a registered name that has two V words and then, I would like to have her call name relate to that, if possible. Then I make it even harder, because I have always given my pets Hollywood names. LOL– I like to make life difficult! Think I'll just go with the "DammitPete" paradigm and name her "Very Very Rambunctious," call name "Uh-Oh!"
As to how the red boy became a brindle girl, I have always had boys and I thought another tri might be too much like Spencer. And the majority of the puppies were red boys, so the question was just which red boy from which litter would be mine. Right at the end, the breeder thought the brindle girl was the best fit for me. So home she came, and I'm just crazy about her. Sometimes, what you think you want isn't what you need.
More pics and a name announcement Very, Very soon.
Changes becomes amazing gifts-for three years of litters I was expecting and once was chosen for a red girl, yet I ended up with the farthest thing from it…a black boy..now anytime I see a black and white dog my heart melts..and I love boys. In the end my breeder was right, it doesn't matter what you're looking for (coat color, markings), you end up head over heels with what you get!
Thanks for all the V suggestions! Keep 'em coming! I think V is probably the hardest letter in doubles– except for Q, which they skipped because it was just too hard.
Great minds think alike! I have been playing with Vixen and Venus and I love Veronica Lake but I'm not sure what I'd call her. (Not so keen on Ronni-- maybe Nica?) Same with Vivian. I also love Lucy and wondered if I could work Vivian in with that. That second V is what makes it so hard!
I also love Va-Va-Voom; call name Ava or Sophia/Sophie. And Viva Las Vegas; call name Liza or Lola. Or Virtue and Vice; call name Emma. And there's one more I'm tinkering with. Of course, Little Miss No-Name is no help-- she doesn't respond to any of them unless I have a treat in my hand and then she likes them all.
Tanza gave you a good one, "Vice Versa". You were expecting a boy, and have a girl.
i was just thinking that.
she's very cute. of course if you're a downton abbey fan, you'll know who Violet is. She's a basenji. I mean she's quick witted, has the very best lines, a bit "entitled" (or arrogant), and is the center of her family. See, she's a basenji.
Vivian Leigh (call name Scarlet??)
"Vice versa" is awesome hahah makes so much sense!! Congrats btw she is soooo cute her colors def remind me of some kinda candy as u described in ur first post, I'm thinking twix haha. I wanted a brindle girl and got a black and white one instead! Regardless of color its about who they are.. LOVE BUGS
