The Name Game

Hello ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls today we're playing a little game here at Snickerdoodles. We found a puppy (5 1/2 months old), fell in love and she moved right in. (L-O-N-G story short... we found her locked up in a small cage in an abandoned shed next to our house. Called the number on her i.d. tag and found out she was just adopted from the owner. He didn't want his dog going back with those horrible people and said I could have her if I wanted her. He brought a big bag of puppy food over and spent a long time telling "Trouble" goodbye. Very cute! That's the story in a nutshell... Oh! There's so much more I could share that would make you even more furious than a poor little puppy locked up and abandoned. I don't get people like that!)

Now we have two doggies. You know about Snickers a.k.a. Snickerdoodles (the inspiration for our blog title!). She's a Fox Terrier and VERY territorial. She's been the rule of the roost for three years and is trying VERY hard to be a good girl and welcome our new friend. And I am sooooo impressed with her! (Let me just say she has small dog syndrome :p)

We've been trying to come up with a new name for our puppy. "Trouble" just doesn't work for me. Jacob and I started with candy names to go along with Snickers. "Baby Ruth" and "Skittles" (My grandma's convinced that's what Snickers' name is. Jacob said, "Well, at least she'd get one dog right." :p) I liked "Abby", but Jacob didn't care for it. We started a list of names, but can't find the right one.

We've been calling her "Molly". I picked it out... and it's the only name she's responded to. (Oh yeah. That and "Oreo") She looks like a Molly... and an Abby ;) We knew Snickers was a Snickers the moment we said it. You know what I mean. Just the right one.

Now it's your turn. I'm not selling name rights on eBay. Although, I could use the money ;) I'm just askin' for some ideas. I'm sure Jacob would appreciate some help. He's not so sure about "Snuggles" or "Cuddlebug"... I can't help it. That's what she is. She loves to cuddle and hug. She's a precious one! But Snickers is not yet convinced.

(Snickers enjoying the party a little TOO much!)

"Molly" tryin' to sleep it off. ;)

That is awful that someone would just "throw away" a cute dog like her!! She looks really sweet especially if she does like to cuddle...I wish I could help you with a name but it would help to see her better or in "dog person" you know. I like the name Molly just fine...sorry Jacob!! You are special to take her in. Hope that Snickerdoodles does not mind...Hope they learn to get along!!

how lucky that pup is to have ended up in your home. after such abuse i'm glad she has found such a loving family to grow up in. and i'm glad for you and Jacob too, i'm sure she will bring you both many hours of happiness to smile about. i got to say, that she is quite adorable. she actually is very cute and seems hugable and cuddleable. i'm most happy for the new family member. for the name, i suck big time at that..hey, how about naming it after US States? betcha not too many dogs can say that, lol..inside jokes are so much fun aren't they? but seriously, if she has already been responding to Molly, that may be your answer right there. if it's the only one she has reacted to, maybe there is a reason? good luck, i love you all. hugs.

Okay, that's all I got. For now.

I think she is adorable but I am no good with dog names. Being a cat lady and all!! She looks like a Patches to me or just plan Sweetie! I like Sugar, plenty of that in candy bars!

I like Molly too. I was thinking about the name Molly today because I was trying to think of something that rhymed with Hollywood. My gf has a black lab named Molly which is what I thought of after I thought of the name and not tonight I read this. Bow Wow! Good golly Miss Molly, she must be one!!

We've had two "Molly's" so I'm a bit burned out on that name, but it does suit yours and she responds to it. Any "-olly" word would probably also work.

Dolly, like the Hello, Dollies cookie bars...
Lolly- like lollipop...

Ummm...Midge? as in Tootsie Rolls are called "midges"...

Someday I want to use the name, "Noli" as in "Magnolia".

What cookie would be the opposite of a snickerdoodle?

What a cutie! I like Molly as a name too. I also liked someone else's suggestion of Sugar. Or maybe Candy, or Tootsie. I'm really not very good at this. lol

Everyone seems to like Molly and we do too, but we also came up with Chocolate Chip (the spots on her nose...chippy, maybe?) and Cocoa.

Wow she is a cutie! I think that should be her name - cutie pie! Or Moon Pie! Or maybe it could be - uhum - Cuddles?
No I got it!!!! My favorite candy is Lollipops! Call her Lolli!!!!

PS If you live near me in the disheveled state of the Floribean perhaps she can play with me at the beach?
