Name my dog contest...winners!!!
 
After many months of tough negotiations I have finally been convinced/manipulated/swindled into getting a friend for our miniature schnauzer, Molly. We will be getting "him" (I need more males in the house as we are currently out-numbered 4-2) in mid-March, and have yet to pick a name. This is where I need your help.
The type of dog is an Airedale terrier. (Excellent hiking dogs.)

Please limit your entries to three per person, and state why you feel that is the best name for my hiking dog.
You make pick the prize of your choice. (All are out of print.)

I'll be announcing the winner in early March.:)
Good Luck to All.;)

Update for Sunday, March 20.2005.
We spent most of Friday driving (occasionally in snow)https://www.clubtread.com/forumPix/40000/40845.jpg to Vernon and back to fetch our pup. He (and we) arrived home safe to a group of very excited kids.
Here are a couple of pictures.

I thank all of you who participated in the "Name my Dog...Win a Prize" contest. There were some...er...creative names suggested, and much contemplation was given to many of them. In the end we chose a name not suggested from CT, but rather a name in keeping with my Dutch heritage. (No Shadee, I did not name it "Gouda")
Sooo... the prizes.
I will give my top three favorites each a prize.
#1...n4cer...Winston was in the running till the end.
#2...marc...I have to give you credit for "Askim" from an earlier thread (sorry Tim). I thought this would be hilarious...my wife, however, failed to see the humour in this.
#3...Shadee...Dee-oh-gee. However clever, it doesn't have a nice ring when yelled across a back-country campsite.

To the winners...please e-mail me your first, second, and third choice for the books, along with an address that I can mail it to, and you should have it by next week. (This Friday is a holiday.)
Thanks Again to All.

Pogo! Cause if he's like all other dogs, he'll go up the trail and down the trail and up the trail... I guess Yoyo could work too, but I like Pogo better:)(Exscape)

(BG) thinks you should call him "Askim". That way when someone asks "what's your dog's name?"...[}:)];) you will have many wildly entertaining moments

Uhm, I actually know a Newfie back East whose dog was named Askim.

Deoge (cant think of a better way to spell it)

Friends of mine called their dog that, "how dya spell it?" D - O - G



well I was trying to think of something cheesy, but I just can't do that to a dawg. Sure is a cute picture

If I think of something I'll post back.

Shadee, thought of that also. (dee-oh-gee):)
Yes, "Gouda" crossed my mind, but just couldn't do that to a pooch.;)

I was trying to be fancy [:0]
silly keyboard won't let me add the accents [xx(]

Swiss? swiss has class

chesshire

no, no, not going there
I do love my cheese, but for a dog name thats just wrong !!!

muckyduck 02-15-2005 09:59 PM

What a cute dog!

I'd call him Fuzzy, because... he looks like a fuzzy!

Or if you want something less obvious, Fozzie. Because he's my favorite muppet. Except for Beaker :-) That would be a good name too.

How about:

Duke: Has a feeling of loyalty, down to earth on the trail kind of sounding, wise

Trigger: When I looked at the picture again, Trigger popped into my head, seems to fit for the look of that dog and it's a good sounding name. I have no affiliation with or accepting cash from CT's Trigger:)

Bruin: bears are called this sometimes. He's brown and it also has an outdoorsy sound. The shortened version brue/brew can be called out loud too.

For a dog you'll have on the trail, I think it's good to choose a name that can be easily said out loud so before you choose, shout it like you were calling him on a mountain somewhere.:)

How about "Max"??? Molly and Max would sound good together :D

darrenbell 02-16-2005 03:22 AM

How about: Moses; as he will be "your" hiking dog and that's your hiking page handle. Or, call him "buddy" as he will be. Sure are a nice looking dog.
