The Princess is getting a puppy sister! Scratch That

One of the CaltechMom's friend's dogs recently had puppies, and as we've been thinking long and hard about getting a little sibling for the Princess, she offered us one, and we accepted!

The new puppy is a little black standard smooth-coated Dachshund, and CaltechMom will pick her up tomorrow.

The only problem is that we won't get to meet her until after Mom has had her for a couple of weeks.  And she needs a name before then!.

This is where you all come in.  We're having a hard time giving Puppy-girl a name!

We'd prefer a girly name, two syllables, since that's easiest for the dog to learn, and something suitable to a little black doxie.

Also, it can't rhyme with "Molly" or "Dolly" because the Princess' name already does.

Have at it folks.  There may be a prize for the person suggesting the eventual name!

No Dog. She called my mom tonight and said her brother took my dog for himself. The rotten bastard.

Oh my.

I had my boy about a month before I settled on his name, it took that long to get to know him well enough to name him.

Of course, he has his official name on his papers, but I have never called him by that name and I refuse to tell anyone what it is, its too embarassing.

Pictures! Pictures would help.

I'm so jealous! I had dachshunds when I was growing up and I love them. I like the standard size - the miniatures are just too nervous.

Girl names for a doxie - Gretchen (I had a red long-haired doxie named Gretchen) - Heidi - Hilda - Hannah - Irmgard - Ingrid - Elke.

I think of those, I like Hannah the best.

Raven - because she's black (and it would start a cool new tradition of naming our pets/children for one another).

Vesta - your home already has a princess, how about adding a goddess (Roman goddess of the home).

Or I like Beth's suggestion of Hannah.

Oh and congratulations on the new puppy!

YAY a Dachshund baby!! Congratulations!! I remember when little Button fit in the palm of my hand, tail and all... :D

I knew a couple of cool dachshunds when I was young named Schotzy and Candy. I would never have named a dog 'candy' but it really fit this girl.

I do love Heidi for a dachshund, of course... ;)
