I hope this makes me happy...
I like to pop up randomly with random news to share with you all. And this goes with something to make me happy, and something I hope you can help me with.
Last January, my mother sent my English setter, Jessie, to live with her ex-husband temporarily. In April, Jessie was not put on her outside chain properly, and she ran away. After contacting the local police, radio station, vet offices, and prowling the town looking for her, we were forced to admit defeat and list her as gone for good. I'd like to think that some farming family found her, and she's having fun chasing chickens.
Since then, I have been looking around various shelters and craigslist posts for adult dogs who need a good home. I haven't wanted a puppy, because neither my mother or I have the time to fully train a puppy. I've come close to a few new companions, but either they found new homes faster than I could pounce, or the shelters wanted outrageous "donations."
Finally, I found what may turn out to be the perfect dog. He's a pure white, one year old male husky with blue eyes. He's been fixed and has his shots, and he gets along well with small dogs (my mother has a trio of chihuahuas). We have a good area for him outside our house with plenty of shade and shelter and grass, and there is a good dog park in our town where he'll be able to run out his frustrations.
The only thing I am not happy about is his name. I'm pretty picky about my pets' names. The dog's name is MJ. I am hoping to change his name, but I am not sure of what. The only thing I am weirdly drawn to is Loki, but I don't feel completely comfortable naming a dog that large and potentially destructive after a chaos deity.
So here, I need your help. What names do you suggest for my new fur baby?
