If you’ve read my previous post about our search for a new dog, you know there’s a big hole in our household’s heart that needs filling.
Good news! We’re the pending owners of a shelter rescue standard poodle. She was woefully undernourished and completely ungroomed, so she was a real mess when RUABelle found her and fell in love. If we pass our home inspection, we’ll have her next week.
So my request to you, oh readers, is advice on a name. The first inclination was something French, since she’s a poodle. Also that would be a reference to our lost New Orleans connections. But someone recently told me that poodles are actually of Germanic origin, so that expands the name base considerably.
I’m usually a believer that the pet’s name will reveal itself, and I’m probably too much of a smartass to be trusted with something this important and permanent. (Example: my first suggestion was Shanene, and I know that’s just WRONG!)
