Alright, readers (all four faithful followers, hee hee), I'm going to lighten things up a bit today and host my FIRST EVER BLOGGY CONTEST. Are you so excited? I AM! If you were paying attention on this post, and I'm guessing most of you were NOT as I did not get a SINGLE comment on the section to which I refer. Ahem. But I digress.
Our family is growing. Sssshhhh, don't tell the kids. It's still a surprise. We're getting a puppy! This adorable little sweetheart right here:
Isn't she cute? Her name is currently "Bailey" and while it's a perfectly adequate name, I suspect we'd have a lot of confusion around here. Cary & Kayleigh already sound a lot alike. Can you imagine if we add "Bailey" to the mix? Truthfully, I'm more worried about hollering at Kayleigh ("NO, Kayleigh!") and getting poor Bailey all disoriented. So we need to
NAME THIS PUPPY!
I'm not quite sure what the winner will get but I promise it'll be worthwhile. (I'm thinking a $10 gift card to Starbucks or Amazon). Plus, you get the honor of having named our puppy! All you need to do is leave a comment with your suggestion. I don't care if you have a bunch of suggestions but I'd REALLY appreciate it if you put them all as one comment, okay? So pretty much my only rule is one comment per person but feel free to make as many suggestions as you want within that one comment.
"Bailey" (soon to be someone else) is 100% Australian Shepherd. She's 4 weeks old and will likely be coming home soon. We're excited but she needs a name. And just so you know, I'm running the contest so I don't have to listen to my kids argue over what we name the dog! I'm going to just pick the winner and there we go!
I'll probably close the contest Saturday night. Thank you!
And just in case you'd like some additional guidance (you know, to increase your chances of being picked and all).. Our previous pets have either had "cute" names or names with meaning or some combination of the two.. I had hamsters, "Peanuts" & "Popcorn", a cat "Kisses" (cause she gave them out), dogs "Archie" which was short for Archimedes.. who in addition to being a famous old Greek guy, was the name of the owl on Sword in the Stone, & "Jitters".. We also had a Ginger and a Sophie, both already named when we recieved them and we kept those names. For this little one, I would like something somewhat feminine sounding, and with meaning!
If you've already entered, I am totally okay with your deleting your comment and substituting a new one with additional suggestions. When I close comments, I (and my husband who just found out about the contest, oops) will just go through the comments and see what we like!!
Have fun! Happy puppy naming!
