    So no excuse not to take any exercise now!! I can't wait, we are getting him in a couple of weeks. We can't agree on a name, does anyone have any good ideas. It's a boy puppy

    We've always had pets, when the kids were younger it was rabbits & guinea pigs. My daughter always chose the names she called our rabbit after her best friend at creche, Heather. Now we've moved on to cats & she choses names from Friends, we've got Phoebe & Mike unfortunately Joey & Monica are no longer with us. So I suggest chosing a name from your favourite tv program.

    Don't forget to show us photo's & let us know his name. I'm very excited for you I just love pets :D

    Sam, Ben, Harry, George etc......I like 'proper' names for dogs, but it does depend on the colour and the face of your puppy, you'll know what to call him when you see him I'm sure, good luck with him.

    Awwww! How exciting!

    Some ideas of names I like for dogs:

    -Blue (sounds weird but we had a border collie called Blue and it was a great name)
    - Elvis (friend has a dog called Elvis and it always make me chuckle)
    - Gizmo
    - Taz
    - Pirate (I wanted to call one of our cats Pirate but OH said no, but agreed to Noodle & Gadget...lol!!!)
    - Neo

    As you can see I like some daft pet names...

    Always remember..........

    A 'cute' or topically funny name might seem like a good idea but......

    The name you give your dog, is the name you will be screaming at the top of your lungs across the park..........for many years to come!!!
