    Trixie was the name of my best friend growing up. She was a fabulous little beagle dog and the only other girl in the neighborhood. I even shared my popsicles with that dog.

    I think one of the puppies needs a kick butt name. Like Zombieslayer. Or Killer. Or RinTinTin.

    I was thinking Pixie for the Mom or maybe Feisty. Since she's little and a Frank, how about Franchesca? If I ever get another male doxie, I want to name him Frankie due to his heritage and the fact that he's a weiner dog! How about Flower or Daffodil for the Mom or one of the girls?

    WarHammer is cool. Reminds me of the last Doctor Who episode, where the Doctor says a baby, who is named Alfie, would rather be called Stormaggedon.

    Scooter is a great boy's name as well!

    Charcoal if one is black male. SHe is the exact opposite of my girl...short and black vs. long and white. They could be an Oreo. Hey..that would be a cute name.
    My little girl, Bubbles, is due any day. She is a maltese. TOday I went and bought supplies that I might need she needs any help. I am very excited but also nervous. Vet refused to check her. Said as long as she was acting fine he did not want her anywhere near the office in order to protect her and pups from any sick animals. Hope there are not too many babies in there as she is small, 5 lbs.

    I am open to name suggestions!!
    I have a miniature chiuahui and she is tiny also we call her Tweety, (she was abused, but she is very loving and she has never had pups). I love the name Tweety, also Baby Girl,

    The Chiuahui mix is very cute, maybe Blackie, i am not very imaginative.

    How exciting!
    I had Rottweilers awhile back and we had two litters. It was exciting and exhausting. With our female being such a big girl we would take turns with feedings as we were worried she would lay or sit on one... Plus her first litter was 7 and we wanted to make sure they all got a chance to nurse.
