    I have always just LOVED the name Winston... after Winston Churchill of course!!! LOL
    He was the biggest pup of the litter, so it seemed like destiny...

    You will LOVE this one though... I named our boxer Roxanne (Roxie) because that is one of my favorite songs by the Police. Well imagine my surprise when my 2 year old Lily (at the time) was singing the LYRICS to Roxanne in her preschool...
    AHHhhh... the joys of parenting!!! LOL

    Wilson was named by his breeder. After we tossed about 100+ names around none of them seemed to fit him but Wilson so we kept it. Emma was originally Gwynn. I loved the softness of the name Emma and the moment someone suggested that name to me for her I knew instantly that was her name. Jack, our pitty, well he didn't have a name. The say we rescued him we stopped at Petsmart and about 15 feet before entering the store Mike said "his ear is jacked up." I said, "well there you have it, that's his name, Jack!"

    I had a list of names that I was contemplating before picking Mayhem up from the breeder, but nothing was "right" for him. After seeing him in action for about 24 hours, the name Mayhem truly fit By the way, Mayhem was not on the original list of names

    I have always wants a bully named Harlea. Her name was picked out many many years ago before I even dreamed of actually being able to have her in my life.

    While we were thinking of names before we brought June home, my bf and I decided that her name had to be something we both liked and agreed upon. He mentioned the name June one evening and I liked it. Her birthday is in June

    My love for all things Blueberry, especially Muffins. It was either that or Bukowski, after Charles Bukowski, one of my favorite authors.

    I had wanted an EB for 10 years, and we had a Jack Russell for 14 years, so I never thought about getting a second dog at the time. I had always said to my husband, if I ever get a EB, I want a male and I'm going to call him either Bulldozer or Tonka, I just loved both of those names and they fit the EB. When my Jack Oreo died 3 years ago, she was 14 yrs old, and she had cancer, I was so sad, and I told my family no more dogs. She died in Sept., and the winter came, and my son wanted another dog, I still didn't know, and we adopted a cat instead, which we had never owned a cat. Meeko came to live with us in November. By the time the spring came, I was missing a dog in the house, and decided I wanted my EB, I asked my hubby to get me one for Mothers Day, and Birthday present combined, I found my Bulldozer (Dozer for short), and we went to the breeders house to go see him, I fell in love right away and decided I wanted him. His sister was also there and my husband kept gravitating to her, and saying aww look how cute she is, she's so sweet, but I had my heart set on a male, and wanted Dozer. Needless to say, we went home with both, hubby said we couldn't leave her behind by herself. Lol. We gave Blosssom to my son who has learning disabilities, and is bi-polar, he lives with us, and I had noticed a big difference in him when Oreo died, he didn't go out as much, he would always go for long walks with her, and he would get up early and feed her, he missed having a dog, and it gives him companionship when we are not home. He loves both dogs, and he spoils them.

    We went through a lot of name choices because we had two, I still wanted Bulldozer for the male, and wanted to call the female Tonka, but my son and hubby thought it was a boys name, we had Elvis and Priscilla, Jagger and Bianca, Rocky and Adrienne, Rocky and Roxy. I stuck with Bulldozers name, and liked Ladybug, Chloe, Charlotte, Scarlett, Diva, Fallon, Petunia, Priscilla, Roxy, and Zoey for girls name. None of them stuck, so I started thinking of B names to go with Bulldozer, and I liked the name Blossom, and it stuck, she was our little flower. We call her Awesome Blossom.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    I had a few names in mind. I was pretty much set on Reginald for a while. But once I saw him, I knew he was a Rocco!

    Sir Rumble Pig got his name from a combination of places. We love the OKC Thunder basketball team and their mascot is a bison named Rumble. I thought that would be perfect for a bulldog since they fart, snore, grunt, etc. So we went to pick up Rumble, who was originally named Gunther, pretty much knowing he would be named Rumble. Well it wasn't long before we knew the name was correct. He makes all sorts of grunts and grumbles if he is not happy and you can definitely hear him fart sometimes! Sir came a few days after that since he was easily running our household and we felt he needed to be dignified with a title. Then came the Pig part. Rumble would eat so fast that he would get sick so we had to buy a slow feeding bowl. Not to mention he will eat everything in sight if we let him. Add in the combination of noises as mentioned above and we felt Pig fit him also. Now that Rumble is one he will answer to about any combination of the above...Sir Pig...Rumble...Rumble Pig...but he normally goes by Rumble.
