I just took in a beautiful little chihuahua/doxie mix, smooth-coated, black, and she is VERY pregnant. The vet thinks four puppies.

I am open to name suggestions!!

Me too!! I haven't done whelping yet, and she is a LITTLE dog! :(

I AM hoping daddy was something other than a chi, though, because the fuzzy puppies get adopted faster than smooth-coated ones!

Here is the pic when I first got her home. She wouldn't come out of the carrier for a few hours. Now she is on her bed and a little less scared, but it is dark, so I can't get a better photo yet.

My kids name all of our pets after beverages. DH and I do not drink, yet our kids have named most of our pets after beer, wine and whiskey. A few we have had

Shasta
Sanka
Fanta
Diamond (Diamond brand tea)
Max (Maxwell House)
Jim (Jim Beam)
MJ (Mini Jim Beam)
Jack (Jack Daniels)
Bud
Miller
Hunter Heinekin
Mocha (irony here is she is a solid white cat, not even close to being a mocha color)
Chiante (Key-on-tay - spoken with a strong southern accent)
Frannie (short for Frangelico)

Now, DS found a lost Yorkie-Poo last year. When no one claimed him we let DS keep him. He decided to break tradition and named this dainty little fellow WarHammer.

Lucky may be a good name for a male. After all , they are all lucky to have such a great foster mom.

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.
