Fell in love with a lady. Am not prepared for this.

A lady-dog, that is. I went to a rescue yesterday, fully anticipating that I would bring back a male dog and name him Suetonius (Sue, for short, making him a boy named Sue). But I fell in love with a striking female. Help! [more inside]

This puppy has everything she needs, except a name.

We just adopted this 8 month old female Pekingese from a shelter in the midwest. We started out working through Buffy-verse names, and got excited about Fred, which we long-formed first to Winifred, then decided that sounded like a middle name and tried to think of a very generic first name, like Lady. We ended up with Lady Winifred and we call her Fred, but the grandparents object, and we're open to choosing something different, since we chose it before meeting her. [more inside]

Looking for foreign words for something akin to sock(s), glove(s), mitten(s), shoe(s), etc. I'm (apparently) adopting this sweet girl tomorrow morning, and am considering names for her. Given her markings, something like this may work, so long as it would make a good dog name. [more inside]
