name that puppy

And the winner is ........................ FRIENDS.  The girls will be named PHOEBE, MONICA, RACHEL; the boys ROSS, JOEY, CHANDLER.  Thanks to all who submitted suggestions.  They were great and you will probably see many of them used in future.  I know that we have enough Pokemon names for the next year!  



UPDATE - FEB 25:  Names for 3 males and 3 females required. 

Wilda's puppies have arrived.  Six puppies were born between 6:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. this morning.  There are 3 boys and 3 girls; all appear to be healthy at this time.  Mom is exhausted and resting; Helen who was right by Wilda's side the entire time, using her skills and simply just being there for Mom, is also resting.  Wilda will be occupied during the next 8 weeks or so, teaching her pups all they need to know to be well-adjusted dogs and then their human family will take over.



With Wilda’s litter due to arrive any day, Animatch is enlisting your help.  We need suggestions  theme names for the puppies.  To  help us identify the pups not only while they are with us but also after they leave, this helps us to remember them long after they have left which is pretty cool.  Remember, that many people keep the names (make them nice, unique names that their guardian will be proud to call their dog). 


In the past, we have used names of flowers, beer, cities in France, cities in U.S., constellations, car parts, 60’s rock stars, cereals, etc.  As soon as Wilda has her litter we’ll let you know how many boys and how many girls (unisex names are great).  Some suggestions might be names of forests, rivers, pastas, etc.
