    Pat and I decided to adopt a dog as a companion to our Sadie.

    It's a small poodle.......rescued from our local animal shelter.

    It's name is Rico....but we don't particularly care for that name.

    Is coming to us at 3 yr. old from a suspected puppy mill.

    Should be in our home by Wed. after neutering.

    He is a silver little guy and cute as a bugs ear.

    Any suggestions for a name?

    Thanks,

    Mary

    I have a beautiful silver cat I almost named Argie, but instead, I ended up calling her Pip. There was a show on SciFi called Farscape, and in it was a beautiful silver Nebari woman named Chianna. John Crighton's nickname for her was "Pip". Our kitty is Chianna "Pip", and is mostly called "pip-skitty". [​IMG]

    Sorry......I forgot to mention he's a little boy dog.

    I always liked the name Riley, but my niece just had a little girl and named her Riley.

    So, that won't work anymore.

    Zane (as in Zane Grey), or Blue, (if he's dark enough) or maybe something easy like Petey. Enjoy the little critter, you're wonderful for adopting him.
