Name That Dog!



Look what we got from freecycle.org!

Last week, a lady wrote in that her friend had died, leaving several dogs behind. The dogs were lonely and had no shelter other than crawling under the mobile home.

I wrote to her and told her that we had a dog, 2 cats, and 2 small kids. If she had one that would fit in with us, we would love to have one!

Lucky is a FAT black lab. My grandpa used to raise labs, so he reminds me of my grandpa who died a few years ago.

We are looking for a new name for Lucky. Lucky seems too...ordinary. Anyone have any suggestions? Being media-junkies, we tend to name our pets (and kids for that matter) after famous people or characters. Our other dog is named Scully. I'm considering Fox or Maulder, but I think it might be a bit much. Our cats are named Orson (Orson Wells) and Wanda (Fairly Odd Parents). We just aren't feeling too inspired with Lucky yet, though.

He was pretty skittish when they first brought him home. The lady that gave him to us said that the last time he went anywhere, he was taken to the pound. He has a bit of a limp, seems to be favoring his front legs. As soon as I find out whether or not I'm going to get paid on Friday, I'm going to set up a vet appointment. Hopefully our free dog won't cost us a fortune! We are already in love with him, though!!

Any suggestions??

I think Lucky is perfect, he's Lucky to have been taken in by you.

How about 'Albert' - from me (Ellen)

'Freeman' (as in Morgan) - From Del and me

Is he a he or actually a she?

How about 'Halle' (as in Halle Berry)

'Carter' (from the movie Coach Carter)

He looks elderly. I would leave his name the same.

I like Freeman, but Josh isn't convinced. He is definitely a boy...Ellen, Did you pick Albert because he is fat and black, like fat albert?

We've still been calling him Lucky, but I'm not sure if that is what is going to stick...

I'd like more suggestions!!

How do you know he looks elderly? I guess he kind of does. We'll find out when we take him to the vet!
