We kept Keiki, because there were 3 stubbies and two long-legs, and hubby wanted a long leg (the mom-dog was a stubbie). We never did it again, and once someone asked me to trace the pups to find a girl for his guy. I'm pleased to report that everyone who took one did as we advised and fixed theirs as soon as they were old enough. Oh, it just occurs to me, this doesn't add up right. One pup was still-born. People have since told me my JRTs were the most gentle they've every seen, but to be fair, they were mutts. I was actually turning down potential buyers because I lived in FL and got a lot of calls from older couples. I'd gently tell them that JRTs are very high energy. Also very intelligent. People always think they want an intelligent dog, but think about it. If you want a cute dog who won't get into trouble, you really don't want the brightest bulb on the tree. I loved especially the battery names! So appropriate!
We agree, Claire! I thought those two really stood out!! Would surely be names they would live up to. Real meaning. Makes me wish I had some babies.

I racked my brain last night thinking about this but it was too hard to write out on my iPhone, such little characters and such huge fingers I have.
Then I read a post from you stating they'd name themselves.
To me, I'd not want anyone but me or us naming our animals.
So I decided to hold back my opinions.
^^^Until I woke up and thought of more.
Whiskey and Sour
Scotch and Water
Vodka and Tonic
Felix and Oscar
Ozzie and Harriet

What ever you name them I know you'll love them tons.
Blessings dear one.......
Have a great day...

You guys are the absolute best!! Mrs and I have been chuckling over so many great suggestions-but as so many of you have pointed out, they will probably name themselves-but by all means, keep em coming!!

This little thread has even helped ease the sting of missing our little Bailey, and for that I can't thank you enough!!

Such great people at DC
