We’ve had 6 new additions to the family, at least one is staying with us (I’m working on the wife for two), three are going to friends and hopefully the other two will cover the costs of vet fees etc (puppy prices are terrifying at the moment).

Anyway, I need to register them for their pedigree names. Mum is ‘River Ribble Dixie’ after the river we live next to. So far we have, River Ribble Earl, Waylon and Dolly. I’m not sure of the sex of the other three yet as I don’t want to disturb mum too much, but if you’ve got any suggestions along the theme, I’d love to hear them. Obviously, they will get new day to day names, but if any of them ever made it to Crufts, wouldn’t it be great to hear the announcer putting Earl Scruggs on the podium smiley

You've got Country and Bluegrass. How about some Old-Time. Wade ? Rufus ? Dock ? Or even Classical - Clifford ? I can't think of any distinctive names if your pups identify as female.

My best pal and companion of 12 1/2 years, Toby, died this March. He was the best dog I’ve known in my seven decades. I miss him terribly. If you would like to carry on his name you certainly may.

Thank you Bill.  I feel your loss - it always leaves a huge hole.

If you're going with bluegrass and/or country names, how about Rhonda, Sonny, J.D., Lester, Patsy (Cline).

That's a beautiful looking family, congrats!!

I had a dog named Banjer and still have a Chihuahua named Mandy Lynn .... good names for bluegrass dogs. Also, you could name one Dobro or reso and there's always fiddle.

What a beautiful family!

We lost our Westie "Adare" (named after one of our favorite places .... Adare Manor in Ireland) after 17 years.  Wish we were there to take one of those little boogers off your hands ..... but not quite ready for another just yet.

Name suggestions?  My dad named two of the last puppies in our dog's litter "Pryscilla and Bob" ..... quite an imagination!smiley

Well, we lost Angus, our Sheltie, two years ago this month. We gave him a Scottish name for a Scottish breed. He is still missed - maybe by the cat a whole lot. The Mrs. has been speculating about a replacement, and has been trying to decide - Sheltie or Westie?

But how about banjos themselves? Orpheum, Vega, Sullivan, Ode, Helix, Stelling, Aria, Fairbanks, Harmony, Stewart, Weymann, ... Masterbone?

Well, "Porter" is a good companion for Dolly and "Lester" goes great with Earl and I would pair "Willie" with Waylon. So if males, you have lots of choices. For females, both Tanya and Reba are good dog names, if sticking with a Country Music theme.

Years ago at a music gathering there was this dog that had the coolest name, but it's not music related.

It's name was unusual, "DeeYohGee" ... cool name for a dog, I thought.

I asked its owner, how did you come up with such a cool name?

D .... O .... G ....

Oh. Duh.

Give me a yellow male if you got a yellow male and I’ll make sure to name him Hank as in Hank Williams or. Brown male and I’ll name him Jackson as in Jackson Browne.

I have a 17 yr old tri-color Australian Shepherd with an AKC name of Madisons Prairie Banjo.

I call him Banjo. He's well past his expiration date and still going strong. Hands down the most incredible dog I have ever known.

When our aviary was still operating, the baby parrots loved to ride on his back. He thought it was cool. So did the passengers.

I prefer waiting and "coming up" with a name that suits a pets personality. Names with just a few syllables are more effective.

These are the kennel names Dick - you know 'Little Lord Fauntleroy The Second of Bismark'' - the ones they get registered with and not used on a day to day basis. That's why I'm having some fun with them!

That said..... I do think I'm keeping either Dolly or Earl for myself - I can see me shouting that across the fields.
