Sadly, Lizzie bought the farm, as the saying goes. Traffic got her. So a new pup is on the scene and I'm contemplating names. The best suggestion so far is Holley, but I'm open to other ideas.

For the pup's sake choose any name that's a single syllable with strong consonants. Avoid S's, Sh's, Th's.

Sympathy for your losing Lizzie, good on you for adopting this little gal, she looks like a good 'un! (Keep her out of the road, eh ?)

My sister had a dog named "Bob". Later she married Bob. So that dog was confused when she called her husband and he was confused when she called the dog. I even met a dog named "Norman" one day. So name it a name which is not likely to be a persons name.

My last dog was "RAJO" he ran fast. A friend here had a dog named De-De, stood for "dumb dog".

Looks like a good dog with a little Spaniel in her, how about a roaring 20's name like "flapper" with those floppy ears?

Our now-gone dog had a real name, but was alternately known
as "Oleo", "Suckweasel", or various forms of "The Evil Death Dog
from Hell". She never cared WHAT you called her. All that mattered
was that she got to ride in the back of the truck and take her to the
river to chase/swim for the thrown stick.

Three cats were the names "Meatloaf", "The Fat", and "Steve".
"Kevin" is on my short list of favorites.

A good ethnic name like Raoul or Boris are also on the list for any
future pet/s. My daughter dated a polish kid back when she was
still at home. I had no idea that my pets were bilingual, but they
clearly understood everything he said in Polish as well as they did
in English.

Warning! Not for the squeamish.

There is an outdoor cat that hangs around here, we more or less claim her as our cat.
About eight years ago, she simply showed up one day, real pretty, had been well fed, but we figured she had been dumped out in the country. She would have nothing whatsoever to do with us, but we fed her some, and she continued to hang around. Then, one day, we looked out the window. She had been ripped to shreds. Alive, but barely able to walk, she was covered in cuts and gouges from her nose to the tip of her tail. One side hung open, with muscle showing for about six inches. We figure that a mountain lion got hold of her (they are in our area).
As hurt as she was. She still would not let us near her, but she seemed to want to stay close to a fountain we had for the clean water. So we started keeping plenty of cat food right there. We had hoped to capture her and take her to a vet, but she would not have it. So she healed on her own. She is still here, and has dozens of scars we can still see (fur color is different?).
We named her "Lucky".

First you have my sympathy on your loss. Second, I'd be investing in the invisible fence if I were going to let the dog roam freely. They work well. Third, I like either Holly or Clara, which of course is short for Clarabelle which just happens to be the name of my '13. That is one cute dog Steve...she will steal your heart for sure. Cherish her & protect her.

I have two small dogs of my own, and I am sorry for the loss of your dog Lizzie. If your new dog is a girl, how about naming her Lady. I know it is a common girl dog name, but after all, Henry's Lady was the Model A, replacing his beloved Tin Lizzie.

Dogs respond better to short names. I think LAP would fit because knowing you that dog will spend a lot of time in your lap.

Sorry about losing a critter Steve, we have lost quite a few up here. As a kid we named every beagle we got either Lady or Sport, cats were Trader, Pesky, Rascal,Goldie etc... Good luck with the new pup. Jim Derocher, AuGres MI

Steve I know how tough losing a pet is. Our old cat of nearly ten years died last month. She was at least six when we got her. Who knows, she could have been very old.
That's going to be a pretty dog. Put me down for Evangeline.

I agree with Jack Putnam, only I'd spell it with two V's. Seems like if the RCA dog became famous during the Model T era with a name like Nipper,...how about during YOUR Model T era, your dog could do well with a name like "FLIVVER"!

We got a new dog last January. We were told "It's either us or the pound". I absolutely DID NOT want another dog. It's a pit-bull-lab mix which made me not want it even more.

My daughter's friend brought it over and brought it in the house. Couldn't refuse. Silver-grey with light brown stripes and grey eyes. Told the kids "There's only one way he can stay, I get to name him". My son and daughter asked "OK, what's his name then"? I said "Chester".

With a roll of their eyes, they both said "OK". Should have named him "Chester, The Goofiest Dog in the West". My son calls him "Smokey" when he thinks I can't hear him.

Best wishes in naming your dog, Steve and good on you for saving the little pooch.

Very sorry for your loss. Suggest you name your new friend "Sparky". I know you like picking up old Champion spark plugs and cleaning them up.....Sparky would fit in well.

How about shortening Ruckstell to "Stella". I usually wait a while before giving a dog a name to see what their personality is like and they also get a nickname. My dog's name is Buddy, but his nick name is the "House Buffalo". When he gets excited, head for a safe corner!

So sorry to hear of your loss, Steve. It's hard not to become attached to a creature that is so full of boundless love and affection. I like the name Holley most, but also like Clara after Henry's special lady. Whatever you name her, I'm sure you'll love her and she'll love you back.

While deployed in AFG, one of my responsibilites was tracking air movement
within southern command - basically tracking who was on which flights and where
they were moving to/from.

This resulted in perusing the daily flight schedules, and it did not take long before
I was laughing my ass off at the stupid names people had on the manifests. Mike's
mention above of "YoMajesty" reminds me of a good one:

"Sir Q'andale"

Yo, Dog, I b down with dat !

Ebonics is a wonderful thing. If this dog was male, I'd call it "Dog". And if it were
female, I'd call it "Be-yotch" and forever talk to it in my best ebonics.
