    After the sadness of losing our dear lab over a year ago we are feeling ready for another dog and a Sheltie pup will be joining our family this spring.
    We are hoping for a sable female but will have to see what the litter brings and the best match for all!!!
    Pups are due in a couple weeks...(and I thought it was hard waiting for eggs to hatch....yikes).
    We are starting our name list ....suggestions???

    Aww I just love Shelties [​IMG] Congratulations!!

    It's so hard to pick names until you know the pup.

    It just depends on how you like to name them,

    My animals usually name themselves so to speak! [​IMG]

    I will name them on their actions, or some special color in their fur,

    or I named my one cat Phoebe because when I brought her

    home a chickadee was chirping up a storm and it sounded

    like Phoebe so that is what I named her!

    so you see it just depends on how things go when you get them.

    Can't wait to see Photos!! [​IMG]

    Quote:Yes so true that the name just seems to come with them. Our chickens have the strangest and diverse names and sometimes they remain nameless for quite some time or simply remain one of "the girls" or "dinner".
    Thinking of names is helping me with my wait time....I think hubby thinks I am nuts but he is way too sweet to say so [​IMG]

    I had one cat that didn't have a name for two weeks!!! I found myself always saying "sorry Charlie" to her, and the name stuck, so her name became Charlie!

    Don't worry that time will fly by and then you will have your sweet little sheltie. Can't Wait to see photos of your new Puppy!​
