Pup has a name!

Remember that time I went on a super-fun 10-day long trip to the West Coast (that still isn’t totally recapped – see Part 1 here) and while I was gone, hubs adopted the cutest pup ever?


Also, remember when it took a whole week to come up with the perfect name for our lil pupperoni? When hubs and I both came up with lists and each name was shot down, systematically? And I wondered when our lil fur ball would ever get a name?

Well, it finally presented itself when we drove down to Ft Lauderdale for the weekend for me to take my RRCA Coaching Certification course and I rearranged accommodations so pup could come along on the trip…and he discovered some different wildlife down in South Florida…namely those of the furry-tailed variety.

So, without further ado…


He’s got a name! And with that, today is his first vet check up and yay me, I get to take him. πŸ˜‰

Do you have a pet?



  1. Really like the name … something about it makes me smile, but I can’t put my finger on it. We have an old (14-year-old) dog named Tucker. Well, he’s not really a dog. He’s a pomeranian. But technically he’s a canine.

    • “Well, he’s not really a dog. He’s a pomeranian.” <– LOL! That cracked me up!!!!

      And thanks, Sam! I was so hung up on finding the right name, and just like magic, it presented itself πŸ™‚

  2. Yayyyy I am so excited oyu adopted a pup. We have had wubby for almost a year and a half and he is like a son to me. i know that sounds crazy. never thought i would be so attached but totallly am

  3. Adorbs! He’s such a cutie! He looks a lot like my pup, Cinderella. They have similar coloring and scruffy terrier fur. Love!

  4. Adorable! My dog’s name is Nala. Okay, so I know Nala is technically the name of a big cat, but my dog just looked like a Nala! πŸ™‚

  5. Yay Dug!!! He is one of my favourite characters ever.

    Picking a dog’s name is really hard! Luckily our pup Peat came with his name since he was four when we got him and had been a show dog. He was obviously pretty attached to his name and it suits him perfectly.

  6. […] On Monday, September 9 – my life really changed forever! Hubs didn’t tell me that he was bringing pup to pick me up from the airport (he even jumped out of the car and scared me half to death) but once I saw his face and his happy wagging tail, it was true love at first sight.Β It took a while to come up with a good name for our furry friend, but after a week of getting to know him, his name was picked. […]

  7. Yay for a name and pet adoption! You will enjoy all your time as a pet parent. We have 2 rescued mutts…Kona (5) and Ace (2) they both have their own personalities.
