Mikal, feel free to contact me at bgrobson@hotmail.com if you want advice/second opinion/just to talk about your dog. I deal with this issue almost every day unfortunately And actually, I would extend that invitation to anyone facing this decision or who has experienced the death of a pet

Cass - he is so cute! He almost looks like a rottweiler/shepherd cross to me This site has several cool ways to help you pick a name for your dog:

Like everyone mikal, I really feel sad for you and your family. You've owned him through a very significant part of your life. Cherish the happy memories. Like I have said here before, with reagrd to Miss Potter and Gusto and all the other beloved animals here that others have had to do that for, it is the ultimate act of kindness by a responsible owner.

When/if you feel like it, I'd love to hear about your dog or see a picture...when you feel like it.
Our pup is still un-named. I'm leaning towards Jack. A dear friend rang me yesterday and she straight away said I should call him Bono...
Thanks for the extra ideas everyone.
BLS....I trust your experience, but I kinda hope you are wrong. Gusto was a rotty/shepherd cross...all that grey undercoat they shed, "tumbleweeds". I hope this fella has a single coat.

again,mikal

hi Cass!


I'm so jealous of you! I've been dying for a dog for a long time, it's actually the only thing my fiance and I fight about. It's actually a very sensitive subject at the moment.

I like people names for dogs - my cousin has a dog that looks a lot like yours and his name is Wyatt. It suits him so perfectly.

He looks like a trouble maker... Fred?

Whatever you do call your dog, make sure its an appropriate name for writing on vet forms. We once had a cat called Shithead.

I can just hear the vet tech calling for Shithead in the waiting room.

That dog is awesome, cass! He sorta looks like Triumph (the insult comic-dog on Conan)!

Anyhoooooo, have you picked a name, yet?? He looks like a McDOOGLE...or possibly a MR. DINK (from the "Doug" cartoon show...Doug's next-door neighbor that always shouts "HI DOUGLAS!"....



....). Yeah, so your pet rocks! I give him two thumbs up...

Hey, my pony is "affectionately" known as Shithead.

no one appreciates the special genius of your conversation...like a dog

Thank you everyone for your ideas. There are some great names you offered. It was so hard to make THE decision. He was called Happy for a couple of days but that didn't seem right.
He's wonderful, so full of energy and a quick learner and very very funny. I think I have a friend for life he and the chihuahuha have sorted things out. Tambo still snarls at him quite a bit, but it is just the last vestige of him trying to convince himself he's the top dog I chihuahuas. I'd highly recommend them to anyone who wants an easy to care for dog that will love you intensely and make you laugh.
So, it was getting on to two weeks and "pup" didn't have a name. I bought the "Dog's Life" magazine, because it had a feature article about dobermans. I never really managed to capture a good photo of the new dog. i only had a loan of a camera for one evening. I'll try again in the future , when possible. But to me, he does look like he is part doberman.
So..........one of the men who contributed to the development of what we know of today as a dobermen was............



I hope you like our choice.....it was difficult. It has a kind of U2ey connection We have a wonderful photographer here in our midst of that name.I like the way it is spelt the same backwards and forwards.
So I feel very lucky to have him....my mother in her own inimitable way said..."you need another dog like you need a hole in the head" I told her he makes me feel safe and that I get lonely out here . He's just what the doctor ordered. He wandered in at the right time.
