Missing....




Is it odd that I still think about my sweet Skeeter every day?? I still miss him a lot. I guess that has to do with him being MY first official dog. We always had dogs growing up, but he was MINE....you know what I mean? Me and Skeets, we were very close! He was the best pup ever!

Well...I am very happy to say that we will be adding another puppy addition to our family on Saturday! Skeeter's mom had her last ever litter of puppies 8 weeks ago and they are ready this weekend! I didn't think I wanted another small dog, but knowing that this one is related to Skeeter and it's the last litter....I had to get one! I couldn't resist! We will be getting a little boy! The one I am pretty sure I am getting (depending on their personalities once we get there) is all white. He has a brownish black face, a big brown spot on his back, and a brown and black dipstick tail. I cannot wait to see him again! I saw him when he was 2 weeks old...but they were just so stinking little then!

Here is where I need your help!!! I need some help thinking of a fun name for our new little guy! I keep coming back to the name "Otis" for some reason! But I love funny names or even Texas related names! What are YOUR ideas?!

I cannot wait to hear all of your fun name ideas!

XOXO,

Hilary

Oh my, I could have written this post. I still think about my little Rilee everyday and still tear up now and again. I'm still not ready, and not sure that I will ever be ready for another little dog.

Your post about Skeeter made me miss our family dog Charlie. We got a cockapoo when we got married and named him Wilson. I have always been a fan of old people names for dogs, lol. Like Samson or Frank. I'm sure your puppy will make you guys so happy. Pet people are happier than non pet people :)

You will ALWAYS think about Skeeter. I think about all the dogs I have lost. Good luck with the new puppy!!! Maybe you could name him HOUSTON? AUSTIN???

Love the name Otis but think Rex is really cute too! Congratulations on your new addition! I am the Mommy to 3 furbabies and love it! Animals makes life better!

Jenn had really good name suggestions. I also like the name Rugar for a male dog. It's a type of gun and I think if your husband is from Texas, he probably hunts or knows of this type of gun. But Texas related could be:
Ranger (Texas Rangers), Tex, Shiner (Shiner beer, brewed in Texas), Tito (Vodka made in Texas)..(I'm not an alcoholic LOL), Wrangler...idk I'm out for now!
If it was a girl I'd say Bell for Blue Bell...

I know exactly what you mean, My dog Kylie Mae... I'm going to be a total wreck when she passes. I wish they would live forever. :(

Bruno is an awesome name. Winston, Oliver! Just some ideas :)
