How we got Corbie's name is very educational :D and we actually chose it a year ago before we even started our search for a pup!

We do a lot of hillwalking here in Scotland and the peaks above 3000ft are called Munros (my fiance's auntie had a big Mastiff dog called Munro named after that) and the next height group down is classified as Corbett so that's what we chose.

I shortened it to Corbie as I thought it was better to call him that than Corbett otherwise everyone would think he was named after Ronnie :lol:

Hi,

We searched for ages for names, the ones i like my other half didn't finally we desided on Ben but that sounded a bit plain so we made it in to Benson ( having said that we call him Ben for short). A friend had a big yellow lab called benson and i always liked the name. The kids call him Benbob and i find myself calling him that sometimes too! :lol: He's a dog of many names :D

Hi there

My other half chose 'Smudge' - not quite sure why and I wasn't sure at first - but I love it now! It really seems to suit him!

All the best,
Nicola.

Hi there,
for our choc puppy I chose Beth which means life . we had recently lost our other 5 month old puppy Heidi so it seemed appropriate somehow.
we kept Harry, as his kennel name was happy sir Harry and he certainly is a happy chap. When we had Neo at 6 months old his name was Oliver but he didn't look an oliver.We had just watched the Matrix film and Keanu Reeves was wearing all black hence the name Neo.

I chose Rufus after a teddy dog that my partner bought me!

I looked the name Rufus up after i named him and it means red so i'm sure he is wondering why he is called rufus considering he is a choc lab! :lol:

Hi,

The four of us couldn't decide on a name so we asked family for ideas.

Every now and again suggestions would be texted through by my partners mum :)

Then she texted through Harvey, along with many others - Rich read it out and we all went YEAH! ! ! So Harvey it was :)

Lottie was named by Guide Dogs - all her littermates' names start with 'L' too. Ruthie used to be called Uschie before she was withdrawn from the guide dogs training programme (for not being confident enough) and we adopted her. We weren't sure about Uschie as a name so tried to find another name that sounded similar so she would adapt to it easily. It was my husband's idea to call her Ruthie - after Ruth in the Bible who goes and lies at Boaz's feet after which he says she can become part of his family! Seemed appropriate as she does a lot of lying at our feet. :D

After much thought and debate amongst the family we went for something short and sweet "Chad".... (also, it's the name of the drummer with the Red Hot Chili Peppers!!), however, my 6 year old likes to call him "Chaddy Waddy Woooooo"! Chad seems to like the long version of his name but my husband isn't too impressed! (I can't imagine the drummer would be either!?) :D

I think Popcorn and Toffee are just adorable names. I had never heard them before. When I got Angus I chose that name because he is black like a Black Angus Steer. Also, I live on a dairy farm and thought it was a cute name for a farm dog. I had never heard this name before until I got talking to a lady from Australia. We email eachother and she has an Australian Shepherd named, "Angus." I just loved the name from the time Jenny mentioned her dog to me. Brenda
