I love talking about naming pets and always have something new in my head when I get a foster dog.
Belle- I didn't name her.. She was a tiny thing if 7 weeks old when I got her and my sister thought it would be cute to name her Belle. I said "ohhhhhhhh...anything but Tinkerbelle.." LOL..So than she was Belle. It is ironic because I love the word "Beautiful" and I love french. So ideally it worked out super.
Smudge- Came with the name "PUDGE" and being 8 lbs.. well he wasn't a Pudge. My mom has a funny thing about messing up the dogs names and ended up saying "Smudge". Little did I realize he had a mark on his nose that looked like he got into a pail of paint and it stuck. lol.
CUrrent foster dogs:
Freedom came with the name Reynold.. but I didn't like it.. It's my brothers name.. (Raynald..but sounds way too similar. I sometimes laugh when I call him. "Freedom, Freedom!" lol.
Gabrielle- Was paige- She needed a new name. I had no problems with the name. I liked it but she was getting a new start.
It fits and I've always liked it.
Gem: Just adopted. Was going to name her Jewel but my friend overruled me so I called her Gem.
Juliet- Was Dixie. My roommate told me to keep it but I wanted to name her Juliet so it stuck.
Faith- was a different name I didn't like very much.. the black and tan chi who is giving me trouble. I liked the name Faith from Buffy so I used it.
Previous foster dog-
Beau- was Seamus- I couldn't spell it nor remember how to say it and he was very bossy so I changed it to Beau. And little did I know that his new family would keep it. It's very funny!
