Hey Pals,

Today is both a happy and sad day.  Today would have been Angel Snickers' 9th birthday!  Below is a picture of her lounging on the bridge at our ponds.....

(Mama actually entered this photo in a magazine contest and it was published in a pond magazine in 2006)

But now Angel Snickers is partying at the Rainbow Bridge with Angel Butchy and many of our pals.  Mama told us that they are having a hoooooge pawty up there today.

Below is a picture of Angel Snickers when she was just 8 weeks old.....

Hmmmm, wonder what our new brother will look like when he is 8 weeks old???

Below the male puppies are now 17 days old today.  You can see the tan hairs starting to show on their little faces now......

Which one will be our brother???  Mama told us that Angel Snickers & Angel Butchy probably already know which one he will be.  We can hardly wait.

We have a name list started and have narrowed it down to 8 names right now:


Decisions, decisions...........

Wirey Hugs, Purrz & Licks,
Katie, Ruby, Sylvester, Scuby, Hootie & Zeek

I know how hard it is to move on, but what a beautiful life Butchy had! I personally vote for Doodles, but I know how this name choosing goes.... Happy/Sad. Ann TBL

Barbara said...

1. Doodles
2. Rocket
3. Sparky.

Angel Snickers was an adorable puppy!

I'll bet she and Butchy know EXACTLY which one is yours!

Amber DaWeenie said...

Me gots a good bouts takin' all da pups and using all da names.....See how smarts me is!!!

Gus said...

We have no idea what to name the puppy! Muzzer says she has no imagination, and is happy I came with the name GUS, because it fits me. Dad has named all of their dogs. Nigel, Tobias, Bagel.....well, you can see why she is glad I came with a ready made name?


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Wow...Doodles is a popular name so far!!! Um, Katie...he's really in just so much trouble...I THOUGHT you said he'd taken some flyin' lessons now that his eyes are crashing that plane on the beach yesterday and scaring the crap outta Mumsie and a couple of thousand other people was a bit much. And why the Hilton Head police put you and me in the slammer with him is just SO UNFAIR. They don't even have an outlet for my blow dryer and my fur is totally salty from the ocean...

I bailed him out. AGAIN. I mean this kid is so wild you'd think he was born on the Fourth of July...oh, wait a minute...he was...

Mumsie has been thinking of Angel Snickers today as have we all...we KNOW she's having a blast with dear Butchy at the Bridge.

Isn't it funny how neither Mumsie or your mom or nobody else can tell which dog he is in the pictures...I mean it's SO OBVIOUS....he's the one with bark bark bark arf arf arf...yip yip yip!!!

Wonderful pictures :)
How exciting! A new puppy!
Love the names...we call Wyatt, Sparky and Sparkle and Sparky McFarkle...Seems to fit a terrier who only has a "GO" switch.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

I know your sweet angels are looking down and smiling as they know already which little one will be your newest family member.
Please don't name him Bentley. That name was on the Bachelor and he wasn't a nice man. You don't want your little one to get teastd. I love the Dustan name! Can hardly wait to see which wee one you get and which name you pick. The best to you all!!!!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Dunstan, Bentley and Jiggs are our choices....But we think the right name will come as you get to know him, and might not be any of those on your list.

(((Hugs))) to you all...It's very bittersweet to celebrate our beloved fur companions' birthdays when they are at the Bridge.

Ruby and Penny said...

That is a great shot of Snickers. We bet she had a fabulous birthday.

We think Katie and Bentley sound great together. We also like Jiggs too.
Love Ruby & Penny

Chloe and Cecil said...

We agwees wit Ruby and Penny..BENTLEY!!! Katie and Bentley sounds so good together!
Ouw othew choice would be Dickens and Katie!! But who awe we to say..wees awe Chloe, Cecil and Winston..Now wemembew..Daddy named us! Mommy wanted Chloe, Cecil and Chawlie! Guess Daddy know best!

We are thinking of you guys as you remember Butchy and Snickers. Surely they are watching over you now, and we know they will help you choose just the right new brother. We love ALL the names you are considering. :)

Bouncing Bertie said...

Hi Katie
Thanks for showing those lovely photos.
I bet you didn't know that I nearly got called Sparky. Gail says it would have been appropriate too.
Toodle pip!
