You can always do what I did with Gunther.

I made a list with about 10-12 names on it, handed it to hubby and let him pick one out.  The list was made up of names I had chosen and liked so we would both be happy.  And he was forced to pick a name so there would be no arguements.... ........and for me it let him be involved in my choice to get another dog (which he wasn't really on board for)

However, he vetoed my first 2 choices right away.  :P  :P  Gunther was one of my lesser names on the list but it's really grown on me and it suits him to a T.  ;)

I talked to Tim at lunch, apparently both dogs were digging meteor pits in the flower bed today (he wasn't watching them)

So now he wants to call her Kubota because she digs like a back hoe. Good grief - boys!

He says he likes Tonka too.

I reminded him she was a girl but he doesn't care.
My name is Lori.

I love Willow too. That was another one he shot down.


Both dogs love to sit under our Willow tree. I really wanted to name Tink - Willow but it didn't happen.

He has tonight to come up with something or pick one of mine. I will let you know tomorrow.

Thanks guys, keep them coming!

How about Totonka from "Dances With Wolves" movie, which meant buffalo. She may be the size of a buffalo when she is done growing. :D

What about "Wendy", to go along with "Tink"? Keep that vague Peter Pan theme going. Or Nana, who was the Newf nursmaid in the book (and a St. in the cartoon, so it's kind of perfect).

I second Nana! Cute idea to keep with the Peter Pan theme, and Tink and Nana are kind of the more background characters, well Tink sorta is! Cute!
