I also like d the name Tonka, so when my hubby said he couldn't leave his sister behind, we took both home. I was going to call her Tonka, but hubby and my son said it was a boys name. I suggested Tanka, but they didn't like it. So the we started thinking of girl/boy pairs names like Elvis and Priscilla, Jagger and Bianca, Rocky and Adrienne, or Rocky and Roxie, Diesel and Diva, which gave me the idea to keep with the letter B. We had our Bulldozer and I liked the name Bergen, for my home town in Norway, but the guys had other ideas. My next favourite name was Ladybug (Bugg for short), but then I saw the name Blossom and fell in love with it, plus she was as cute and pretty as a little flower Blossom also she is mostly white, and when she gets excited or warm, her pink skin shows through her fur, and it reminds us of an Apple Blossom which is my favourite tree, and my son also loves the Asian culture and Apple Blossoms represent the Asian culture.
    @Vikinggirl they are both perfect

Best Christmas Present ever
    Just one question Julie, does FTSE like to play footsie ????

It seems like Winston is a common bulldog name (you know, Winston Churchilll and jowls and English), but Winnie's name came from a different place! So now I'm 65 and I have another Winnie!
    Winnie is such a sweet name! A beloved one too, I think. Winnie the Pooh, Winnie from the wonder years. Love it

    Little did he know that his future wife would fall head over heels-crazy-in-love and "his" bulldog would become his wife's baby!!
    His middle name is Kringle, because we got him for Christmas. He has a few nick-names that he answers to…my favorite is "Goomba" it's the equivalent to "honey" or "sweetheart", but due to having four other "honeys" and "sweethearts" running around here, he gets something different.
    Oh the nicknames! Murray's got a few of them too...handsome, handsome hound, pumpkin, pumpkin pie, Murraykin (Murray+Munchkin) Bubs, Bubsy I love that Sea Bass has so many names too!
