THANK YOU FOR PLAYING THE NAME GAME

We want to thank all of you
who entered in our
"Name That Puppy" Contest.
There were about 60 entries per sex,
and it was a lot of fun.

Hamish and Angus
were the most popular boy's names.
Fergie was the most popular
for the wee lasses.

The first thing we did was have Mom
type out all of the names
and cut them apart,
attached to the name of the entrant.
She then put them in one of her
Scottie purses
and we got to choose them.


Because Java
is our elder,
he was given the opportunity
to choose first.
As you can see,
he's not really enthusiastic about it.

We know the puppies
haven't changed too much,
according to their pictures,
but they have really grown a lot.
Each puppy has gained
an average of 5 ounces.
And that's a lot when you only
weigh 8 ounces to begin with.

They are wiggly
and very hard to photograph,
so please bear with us.
Cuter pictures of them
will come in a couple of weeks.


Little Laddie #1
is now named
Hamish
as suggested by
Uncle Petey.
Java says,
"us old guys gotta stick together".
This is in honor of our friend, Hamish.


Our male puppy #2
is now named
Angus,
as suggested by Bijou.


Male puppy # 3
is now
going by
Dugan,
as suggested
by
Kira.


Lilly chose next.

Laddie #4
is now named
Finlay,
which was submitted by Stella.


Ladd # 5
is now named
Henry,
submitted by KMP.


Our little girl #6
already has her forever name.
It is
Sophie's Scarlett Sage.


Number 7 was so fast,
we could hardly photograph her.
Her name is now
Jasmine,
submitted by
Snazzi Jazzi.


Lass # 8 is now
Ciara
which was submitted
by NSLM and Clive.


And Piper dug deep
to pull out the last name
and the winner of our contest.

And the name he chose

Lassie #9 is now named
Snickers
and was submitted by
Butchy and Snickers blogspot.

Please contact us
at rocky creek scotties at yahoo dot com
to claim your prize.

As their "forever peeps"
start choosing their names,
we will keep you updated.

Once more we want to thank you all
again for participating.
It was a lot of fun!

XOXO,
The Rocky Creek Baker's Dozen

Isn't it amazing how active and noisy they are? Mine were almost never still, and they still aren't.

Hamish Westie said...

Excellent names all round. Well done everyone!
Cheers, H.

Petey said...

Hip hip Hooray for HAMISH!!!Ahh, I'm such a proud uncle, if I was wearing buttons they'd be busting! Hopefully, this wee Scots lad will be the recipient of much Highland knowledge from me and his namesake Hamish. What a grand legacy! We were so excited that NSLM and Clive's name was selected as well. Then we got to Lassie Snickers and our eyes welled up with happy tears. What a wonderful legacy. My middle names are "Keddy" after our sweet-natured WFT so I'd be sweet like her and "Hudson" after a handsome Bernese Mountain dog friend, so I might have a touch of his noble grace.

No doubts that baby Hamish and Snickers will have the delightful personalities of these wonderful dogs that came before them! All the pups are precious and adorable, but is it okay if we have a couple favorites?

Your very proud pal,

Uncle Petey

I'm so sad that I missed the contest but I think all the names are Perfect!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Awww. What a sweet post. And what VERY SWEET puppy pictures! This made us smile at a time this evening when a smile feels really good. Our Girl was so disappointed when she realized the deadline for the Naming Contest had come and gone, but she'll be pleased to read the results. We love all the names ... and Fergi blushed a bit when she learned her name had been a popular nomination.

Enjoy those puppies! The weeks will go quickly.
Love
Jake and Fergi xxoo
