Yesterday evening whilst I was in here catching up on comments from the past week and writing my blog post, I kept overhearing giggles coming from the living area.
They piqued my curiosity so when I had finished with the computer, I wandered out to the lounge room and found the Garden Gnome and the Teen sitting on the floor and laughing hysterically.
I asked them what was going on. “We’re thinking up dog names” the Teen responded in answer to my question.
“But we don’t have a dog” I replied.
“No we don’t yet but maybe in the New Year we will get one” the Garden Gnome offered. “In the meantime, we are hypothetically shortlisting names”.
It seems that my family have decided that when we do get another puppy, it will be a Westie (West Highland Terrier). I looked up breeders and found that these little gems are not cheap. We were expecting to pay hundreds but it appears that they command thousands. Might have to rethink that idea.
Anyway, back to the names.
For the next couple of hours, the search for the perfect name to place on the shortlist continued. We even enlisted the assistance of the First Born who happened to call during our discussions.
Many of the names offered were totally outrageous. Some were downright stupid and some reminded us too much of people we actually know. 😀
I do believe that the Tween has about 5 names shortlisted with the top two being “Churro” (don’t ask) and “Elsa”.
I’m thinking that Elsa might be the better of the two.
Isn’t it funny how the little things make family time so special? I’m so incredibly grateful for the times in life such as these.
Now we just need to rob a bank to buy a dog. 😉
