name the new dog lol.

So after discussing it at great length we are finaly ready for a new pet in our lives. We have been ready for awhile now (our dog passed a few years ago now) but we wanted to wait until the kids were both in school etc. So we decided that this Christmas we would get a family pet.

However I have already decided (we don't have a new dog yet) that I am not going to let anyone else name it. My kids come up with the worst name's for pets and stuffed animals. We have a teddy bear named Fruggy and a stuffed rabbit named Bungster. DH is no better, he comes up with the worst ideas (wanted to use the name Duke for a baby girl, seriously). I just can't take the idea of calling a sweet new pet something stupid for it's whole life. And we all know it''s gonna be mommy's dog anyway. I'll be the one doing everything to care for it and I'm the one always home lol.

Stupid confession I know lol

What are your pets names?

Our dog is Joey, and we have a goldfish named Matlock.

ETA: Fruggy and Bungster made me laugh! I also can't believe your husband wanted to name a girl Duke. WTF!?!

I had a Kitty, Sally, Rascal, Misty, Shadow, Sheeba, Bruno and Max. First three were cats; the rest were dogs. I currently only have Kitty. The rest have passed on.

my puggle's name is Daisy, and momma named her.  there was never any discussion otherwise, the dog told me what her name was and that was it.
