Pup #2 in 2008


There seem to be some technical difficulties at the Parish home, so I (Nikkala) have been asked to share the new puppy with the world.

Warren's following may not realize that puppy #1 (Sotouka, Touka--I'm still not sure what her name was) was killed in cold blooded murder just about the time she was growing out of the puppy stage and turning into a "real person". Dad has had a really hard time with her loss and is barely (months later) able to talk about it.

So pup #2 has arrived and has big shoes to fill as she tries to live up to the previous puppy, and most importantly, our beloved Sam.

Dad says she is black. Mom says she is mocha, and I think she is a dark brown from the pictures.

There is a contest being held to name her. Rumor has it that the winner will receive $50, so put on your thinking caps.
Dad thinks she will be called Obama because she was born in 2008 and she is almost black like him (dad's words, not mine).

Please realize that the name judging is completely biased, so even if better names are submitted, Obama may be chosen just to save $50.

Leave a comment with your choice of name for this adorable little gal.

Bentley thinks you should name her Wiggity Wack and call her Wack for short.

With $50 on the line, I had to do some internet research.

Here are my suggestions, followed by the names meaning and possible shorter nickname in parenthesis:
1. Kimiko - dear child (Kimi)
2. Takara - treasure
3. Hana - favorite flower
4. Yuriko - prized child (Yuri)
5. Akiko - autumn child

And lastly:
Simmenct - I don't know what it means, but it's the word verification I have to enter in so I can post this comment.

Hudson thinks she looks like a "Sid the Science Kid." Now I've got some kids that really want to come to Grandma and Grandpa's.

I think Sanka would be a good name
