Name Contest

Yesterday, we came home to find Doris waiting for us, with a new addition to her family. This adorable little pup was in her arms. She has adopted HIM from the Pound. He is 7 1/2 weeks old, came from a litter of six, and is a black lab mix. He looks a little sad in the above photo, but believe me he is a rollicking, energetic, bundle of fun. He has white 'boots' on his back feet, and white tips on his front feet, and a patch of white on his breast. He will make a great companion for Doris on her ranch.
Doris wanted to run a little contest on the name the pup. So, anyone who has an idea for a name for him, please comment back to us, and Doris will choose the winner. Sam, Will, Ben, Cal and Millie will all probably have a name choice. They do such a great job of naming their toads, frogs and snakes.

He's still pretty small, but that's the best time to get and train them. I think Doris will be very good and patient with him in training. I'll post a few photos in the next few months so you can see him grow!
