I've always like Ruby for female dogs. Years ago my friend had a Rottie called Ruby and she was an absolute sweetheart.
Boys names ending in ee sounds - I like Archie and Alfie?
We are having similar discussions in our house. Problem here is that we all have completely different ideas of what makes a good dog name. Dh likes quirky and a bit offbeat. I like something nice and solid sounding that I won't be embarrassed to call in the park and the dcs veer between horribly cutesy and downright bizarre.
Yep. Sounds like my house Moose! DH was saying what about Frankie for a boy after Frank Lampard or Chelsea for a girl. I won't repeat what I said...... DS3 said he liked Steve for a boy dog. You see my problem!
Ooo, now I'm intringued to know what your dog's name is!
I have given up on dog names and moved on to drooling over gorgeous sighthound collars. My dog may have no name, but at least he'll be well dressed.
Actually, I've seen a lovely one for Lurcherboy. It's embroidered in the colours of my family's town in Ireland - and we're going there soon. I'm sooo tempted, but dh wouldn't be impressed, what with all the upcoming puppy expenditure.
He is called Mario Moosemamma and you would not believe the looks we get even though I don't think it is the worlds strangest name. He is a proper scruffy looking border terrier and I think it suits him!
Ds gets really indignant about the game connection as he named the dog after his favourite footballer but to be honest he has an excellent moustache and when he is being a monkey dh calls him evil wario!
My boys aren't into football, so probably wouldn't have a clue who you're ds's favourite footballer is. It's Geek central round here - computer games, Pokemon and Star Wars I'm afraid. Sounds like he would be wholeheartedly unimpressed with them.
I absolutely love dogs that have moutaches and/or beards. Depending on their mood/behaviour, it either makes them look distinguised or downright comical.
Border terrier was high on my list of 'breeds to have next' - until I fell in love with another lurcher rescue pup. Which is probably only fair, as I'm not sure a border would be able to keep up with Lurcherboy at full throttle.
Ah no he is an utter geek too and took his beardy Mario to the carboot this morning and returned with a starwars game and 2 figures He likes Mario bros but it's not HIS Mario you see!
Never underestimate a Border, they are wily little beggers! One of my dogs best buddies is a young whippy...she can out run him flat out but he ducks and dives and does what he can to cut her off! He is a big bully though and he tries to sit on her so she pulls his beard
Apologies for taking your thread off topic here! Have you settled on a name or are you still on number 1864 of the list?
That's what I like about Borders though. I love the whole terrier attitude. I used to have a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier and I miss the stubborn nuttiness and comedy antics of terriers.
This time round my dream rescue was going to be a Whirrier (whippet x terrier). As it turns out, I haven't a clue what mix the lurcher pup we're hoping to get is ... but he's gorgeous. (I do think there may be some terrier in his mix though.)
It's not my thread - it's Sally's, but she's lovely so I think she'll forgive us.
I'm really hanging around to find out which puppy she chooses out of the litter when she goes for a second visit tomorrow!
We still don't have a name, but when your eldest wants to call the pup 'Vinegar' of all things, there's little hope of ever reaching an agreement really.
