    :sun: Hello every one.
    Every one here has been so clever nameing thier chicken I thought I would ask for help nameing my new boston terrier puppy.:twosome: SHE is 7 weeks old.
    I need a name that does not end with "Y" or "IE"
    I all Ready have two dogs named Maggie and Lucey.
    Haveing a new dog name a name endinf with "Y" or "IE" would further complicate things. I all ready have a hard time with Maggie and Lucey not being able to distingush between thier names as they sound too much alike.
    This is why I thought I would ask every ones help.
    I am up at 3 in the morning becaus she is lonley and crying for her mom...............so she is in my lap sleeping (wish I was ) OH well.
    The breeders called her Anne . I like the name BUT it is my mothers name and it has the "IE " ending problem. so there it is .

    Oh Diane you are funny and managed to get that in before the others. Can you imagine Frogdust calling her to come ? I knew an old lady many moons ago who named her cat after Tito Gobbi. I can still hear her in my mind calling him in at night in her cracked little voice...... Titooooo Gobbigobbigobbi Gooooooobbiiiiiiiiii Bless her she is long gone now though,

    My friend had a cat called Thomas Tittlemouse, which eventually got shortened to 'Tits'. Which didn't matter until they moved to a new house where the neighbours weren't aware of the cat's odd name and were alarmed by the strange woman nextdoor opening her back door and bawling 'TITS!!!' every evening...:)

    for the names and the laughs.
    MY Husband Arthur named her for me. he has never attached to any of my animals since our first cat died. he named her "KateyDid" after the little green singing grasshopper. So say hello to a new Kattydid . KATE D ! SHe hopps all about like a little cricket! she is tiney about the size of a large muffin. we have to be careful not to step on her

    oh frogdust you made me start laughing at your laughing fit, I just hope it wasnt a case of laughing leaks to add to your lack of breathlessness !! Katydid is a lovely name and she is a lovely addition to your family. How wonderful that she has crept into Authurs heart. looking forward to seeing a photo of her when you get time. I just love the way we all manage to jog each others memories and the wonderful stories we have. We all have had such fun thinking of names so thank you for the thread idea.

    Keep them coming

    I can just imagine calling for a cat called 'Tits' or shall I call my cat by that name....NO, I don;t think I'd ever be able to call her in the evening to come in for her dinner. I'd just have to stand there rattling the biscuit box.


    my colleague bought a house in a street only because the street was called TittyHo. not for any other reason. :-)

    Another work colleague named his boat 'Our Soul'
    say it quick and you will know what I mean. He just wanted to have the pleasure of the Coastguards calling up their boat. :-)

    My ex and I had a sweet all black kitty who loved to roll on her back, leg akimbo. For that reason, we named her Nipples. And soon shortened it to Nippy.

    My parents had a cat when I was born name Damn It. Just SO they could stand on the back porch at night and scream...well, you know. They thought they were hilarious.

    Hi KateyDid!

    I too don't know how to put pics on but I will see if I can get a good friend to help me and make notes. I go on a couple of gardening forums and the only way to get plants identified is to be able to post pics. I'll see if I can find help there too.

    There might be an add-on I could install to help with the pics but it might take some time so bear with me...

    CC, did your friend ever lose the cat? I can only imagine the look they'd get if they were frantically asking people 'HAVE YOU SEEN MY TITS?!'.... :p

    Ooh, have just added a nifty image uploader for you - just click the 'Choose' button under Attachments, find your image, click it and then post as normal, and it 'should' do everything for you :)

    Just make sure your image is less than 500kb (or it will be massive on the page and won't upload properly)... let me know if you have any problems!
