GOTCHA!

OMD!! We have a new pack member!! His name is Riley. Or Charlie. Or Rocco or Jack or Bubba or Baily or Buddy or Eddie.... The dumb humans can't agree on a name for him.

Bart, Me, New Guy

He is about two years old and was found as a stray. Actually he found a house where nice dog-people lived and sat at their gate until they let him in. Unfortunately (fortunately for us) their sibe went after him so he couldn't stay there. They contacted the rescue that I came from and they contacted mom:  "Hey!  Want another rottie???"

He's a lover not a fighter!


Hey Blogville!  I need a name!!

He is very sweet and very respectful of Bart and me.  If he gets too pushy with me, I just give him my "bitch bark" and he backs right off. He really seems like he just wants to please everyone - even me!!  We all got to go for walks today and we're all very relaxed.  Mom walked him by himself cuz she doesn't know him yet.  He's not great on the leash, but seems to be a fast learner.  

You know, I can't work on my recall until I have a name...
He is affectionate, likes other dogs, likes people,
 is kinda trained - he sits for his food. 
He is VERY skinny (you can see his ribs in the photo above) 
butt we'll fatten him up.

Bart and Me

He's a very happy guy.  We've all been playing together.  Sometimes he gets the puppy zoomies and jumps over us like he's flying!
Bart and I feel younger just having him in the pack!


Can anyone help us with a name for him??


Love,
-Ruby

He is a verrrry handsome dude. Looks like he fits right in. Glad he found your family...His foot looks like it might be an owie... We think he does kind of look like a Rusty with his coloring. Whatever name you call him by will be perfect!

Oh, we are so so happy for you and Bart and of course for your new family member. He is so handsome and I think he is already a sweetheart to all of you. I'm sure he will learn fast and he will become your BFF in no time.

You were RIGHT! I am now smiling. A very big smile! I am so happy for you. I have a bizarre name for you. Have you heard the story of Hachi the dog? I've always wanted to name a dog Hachi. But Bubba works for me too!!!!!

Welcome to Blogville, "New Guy". We're just going to call you Handsome until your hu-folk figure out what your name will be. Can't wait to get to you know.

What Remains Now said...

This is so exciting! This little guy must be so happy to be with Bart & Ruby! Congratulations to everyone! I will toss "Butch" into the hat. Although, I really like Rocco too. Henry and Harry are good names too. I'm going to stop now.

houndstooth said...

This is the most exciting and INTERESTING thing I've read in the Internet today! I'm so happy for you! Perhaps his name should be Equis? ;)

CONGRATS on the new addition!! I'm terrible with names too, but I have to admit to liking the name 'Jack' or 'Jax.' But that's me, and I know whatever name you decide, it will be the most perfect name, because he has the most perfect forever home!!

Golden Woofs! SUGAR said...

Woof! Woof! Golden HELLO! to you. Love the name Buddy. Oh your family is getting bigger. Golden Happy for you and your family. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

GOOSE said...

Oh that is so GREAT!! He looks super cute and MOM wants to cuddle him. I like Buddy for a name. But I am sure the perfect name will come. Welcome new friend. You landed in the perfect home.
Blessings,
Goose

BZ Training said...

Congrats to all of you! What a handsome guy. :) I like Jack as a name.

scotsmad said...

He's gorgeous. We think one of these days the name will just fit. Maybe you should call him a few and see what he answers to.

xXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Reilly / Denny Cowspotdogs said...

For some reason he looks like a Karl to me - he has that intense look to him. What ever name he gets he is going to be one happy guy with you guys!!!

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Yaahoooooo!! What an exciting time for you all. Your new boy looks wonderful. So glad he is fitting in so well. We think a good name would be Aussie (hehe) or Elvis or Bruce (cause we love this name of course) Cant wait to hear more about him mates. Well done! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Hiya New Guy! You've hit the Rottie jackpot! Alas, we are not good with names (we're both named after characters on teevee), however, for some reason we think you look like a Clint (as in Eastwood) to us. Regardless of the name you agree to put up with, you have totally scored, Mr. As-Of-Yet-Unnamed-New-Guy!

Chris said...

Looks like an Otis to me! He is very handsome, Louie will be very jealous........hmmmm.

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Congratulations to the whole famdamily! I know you'll all be very happy together!

Now fornames, that's tuff...but he seems like a fun-loving, mischievious type of guy ... I like Alvin, Huey and Sonu (Sweety Pie in Hindi)

So happy for you all!

Chris said...

Oh, how about Hank, yeah, I like Hank the Tank too!

harrispen said...

Congrats to all of you especially the New Guy! He is very handsome, but don't worry Bart you are still the most interesting dog in the family.

Ruby said...

Furst, OMD!!! This is so great!! Oh, you guys are so lucky to have another pack mate! Congrats!
Okay, I'm going to throw 'Rufus' into the mix (it's Latin for red haired one). I'm also kinda partial to Rusty. Butts, he looks like a 'Rufus' to me...
Whatever you end up naming the sweet guy, I'm sure he's gonna love it there with ya'll!!
Kisses,
Ruby

April McLeod said...

OMG! What a sad story with a happy ending! Why he would be a stray is beyond me but I'm glad he's with you! What a bonus for him that he has you and Bart and Ruby for siblings! I am just now catching up on his story and I do love the name Otto! Pawfect for him! Does he know he's a Blogville family member yet, by the way?
