LOL We go thru a huge process starts with The Prettyone and Me .
We start with Female names we get from the internet , now they must be Old English female names as we always get a female and there is only one exception NO Elsie I Hate that name ( no offence if someone has that name )
We do our searches for names separate and then on a weekend compile all those names , it is a long process. We look for a great Full name and as we will be using a short form of that name that must also fit so for example Primrose = Rosie , Matilda = Tilly . Diva came to us as a save and she was I think 7 when I got her we did not pick that name but it fits her lol and of course would not change it at that stage of her life .
So We might have 3 or 4 pages each of names We have gathered over a week of looking and i am talking 8x10 sheets of paper lol , I go on the Friday and pick up 2 bottles of good white wine and we make a name picking date for the two of us , some cheese and all sorts of good nibbly food is present .
We go thru all names and keep narrowing them down too app 10, We then have by this time seen the pup involved at least twice and pick one that fits the personality we have seen in her . Most our dogs (5 now ) are saves and have been named and most times they are older dogs no one wants rare they are pups so we do not change there names Dakota was a exception ( Non-bully) his name originally was Parka , and to Me he did not look like My coat so after observing him for a week and calling him HEY YOU I decided to call him Dakota , Odin is a ODIN and came with a correct name , Willow is exactly that she is wonderful lol
YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...
...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
...you snore like a chain saw.
...it takes too much energy to beg
...your snore is louder than your bark
...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
...you're the loudest snorer in the house.
I had set in my mind to name my first Bulldog Rex, after the NY Jet coach at the time Rex Ryan who looks like a bulldog. When LIBR dropped him off they said his name was Chumley and i thought there is no way i could change that..it was perfect!
As for Hershey...I thought he was named because he came from Pa. but was told by @RaRett (Rick Rettinger), who raised him from a pup, and unfortunately had to give him away due to medical issues, that there was a time period after hershey was born that the vets didnt know if Hershey was a male or female due to a condition called Hypospadias...so he named him Hershey.. (a variation of He or she). That was very clever!
“It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"
I got Tyson as a rescue, and he was already named. He's acquired many nicknames throughout the years: Marshmallow, Ty-Ty, Boo Boo, Handsome, Stinky (at times, lol) haha.
My whole heart, Tyson.
Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.
Castor is registered under his official kennel name but we wanted to choose our own name for him and ended up with Castor after one of our favourite children's books characters. The fictional Castor is a beaver and an absolutely lovely little character. Some of the books have been translated into English (although for some reason Castor is called Harvey in English...): Lars Klinting - children's books - Handy Harvey
Castor is on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/castorthebulldog/
Well... we were heading to Harrisburg, and we were passing the signs for Hershey. .. and it hit me He?...She? Hers He ? Hershey.... and he had the cutest Hershey Kiss tail.
