    My girlfriend and brought home a new member of our little family yesterday. We adopted a beautiful Shepard/Rottie mix. He's 9 weeks old, and He's very smart. 1st night home he went right into his crate at bed time slept all night without a peep. He also knows what the wee-wee pads are for, and uses them everytime...without any explanation.

    Anyway, I'm stuggling coming up with the perfect name. I don't want your typical dog name, or something too cutsie. He is going to be a big guy when fully grown. I would love to have something music/bass related. So far the best one I've come with is Dylan (named after Bob Dylan). I attached a couple pics. If anyone has any good Ideas We'd really appreciate it.

    WHen we got our beagle/sheltie mix, Jazzy, I wanted to get a male of somewhat similar mix and call him either Jaco or Django.

    In stead we got a female and call her Honey.

    Bummer.

    Nice lookin' pup! Gotta love those little paws... :)

    I was thinkin' maybe Jimi (as in Hendrix) - he looks a little too smart to be a folk singer.

    The way to tell for sure, is to take him into a studio, and see if he can tolerate more than six takes at a time. :D

    Yeah, I suggested Hendrix, I think thats an awesome name...but the woman didn't think it was right for him.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys...My girfriend likes the name Coda after the zeppelin album...Which is pretty cool. Too bad it's not one of their best albums. But I guess II, Physical Graffiti, or Houses of the Holy don't make very good names.

    It's a little cheesy, but I think Milo's a good name for a dog.

    Failing that, Jazz greats are always a good way to go:

    Monk
    Bird
    Dizzy
    Sonny
     
  12. Looks like Bona to me.

    Wait until he starts chewing and destroying sh*t, then name him Trogdor. That's what I did for my kitten, it fit way too well.

    I'd name him Mike.

    Or maybe Phil.


    Nothing beats a pet with a super normal human name.
