My new brindle bundle of joy…

Congratulation!!! She is darling and I'm sure she will name herself. (Our first basenji was called DammitPete)

She is lovely, brindle is my favorite as well. Naming is one of the hardest things I find, as well as finding the name to fit the dog everyone has to agree. Good luck.

CONGRATS!!!!!! She is too cute and how fun that we ARE related by our Basenjis! TMartin too!

She is so cute it hurts! LOL how did the red boy become the brindle girl? I definitely had no desire to own a boy, so the change would have been great for me. And omg, that cute brindle! LOVE LOVE LOVE. Congrats. 🙂

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.

Wonder who else is related to us? Little Uh-Oh! may have a lot of cousins on here.

What a cute little brindle girl 🙂

Congratulations on the new addition!

Double V's would be difficult!!! What about Viva Venus… She sure is a cutie and you are lucky to have lots of people on here who are related to you now!

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 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!

I have had over the year so many people insist that they wanted a girl… only to find that I picked a boy for them... and visa versa... The only time this I will try and get the sex someone wants is if they already have a Basenji of one sex or the other....

How about Vivian? Two V's, Viv for short?

Call name could be something like "Venus's Vixen". ((Men are from mars, women are from Venus- seeing as you surprisingly got a girl?) or "VaVA Voom…"

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??)

First Basenji's

"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 ❤

Yes, Vice Versa would be really cute…. Meisterhaus Vice Versa!

LOL or cheat and make it Vi Viane.

Vexing Vixan – could call her vex, vix, Xan etc.

The only V halloween I can think of is vampire and you do NOT want to go there.

LOL dear spirits.. a list of V words

LOVE Vice Versa…... Vibrant Venus (I know I am stuck on Venus)...... one day I am going to name a puppy Yin and Yang.....

I like the Va-Va-Voom: Ava, Virtue and Vice: Emma, and the Vice Versa. The last is especially fitting as a red boy became the brindle girl. Funny how things work out…we also thought red boy and got the tri girl.

What's her personality like? There may be a name which really fits what she's like.
