Ok first of all – we can not agree on a name!! Syrup was not right name and finally daughter say ok… we pick another, Syrup doesn’t fit him, and I don’t want to be yelling for him and then comes this Doberman lol … it doesn’t sound or feel right with Syrup

…It has to pass me and daughter – so far I have tried …


Lol… she said no

I also tried “Midnight” cause he is mostly black

Ember – since he born in July in California and we got him when Mosquito fire still burning

But no and no

We have to find something 🤷‍♀️ any ideas?

His mother was all white and beige … she was decent sized … she was calm gentle – not in any way excitable. Just calmly sat.

They don’t know what father was … but after being with him and always looking at him and watching his behavior… I do believe I have a Terrier / Doberman mix 😮😮😮 … so … that’s definitely not a chihuahua lol 😳

He has not found his bark yet 😮 and he is soooooo teeny tiny right now!! Chihuahua sized lol

I’m already totally in love with him – completely ❤️ he has such a gentle look to him … his eyes just capture me …he’s just amazing

He can be a little toddler – dude is into everything omg – he is so fricken curious lol ❤️

And he’s teething… so there is little bite thing going on … but he’s doing good with it and I’m socializing him with people… he’s stopping thought – just notice it if he is tired or over excited – I am working on it with him

He is very loving 🥰 ❤️ yeah I love him very much ❤️

Wow what if he is Doberman ? Cause he’s looking and acting that way? I read all about their puppies and dogs … is identical to how he be! His demeanor and personality.

It’s says you can train them very easily to be amazing … he is really smart ❤️ I already feel connected with him

But I have never had a fierce bigger dog – guard dog type … I am used to chihuahuas…

Ok so new adventures lol

Their personality is just so amazing … he snores lol … and sleeps in weird positions sometimes lol … I try to take tons of pics – to look back and say look how little you were!! Lol 😮😳

He comes to work with me … and today he make many people smile… they see him and instantly fall in love with him… and he just eats it up lol omg ❤️ he walks into the funeral home like he owns it already lol ❤️

See ?? Does he look like Doberman ?? Omg his little eyebrows ❤️ I love those eyebrows ❤️

He has little baby BIG features – but he’s really little lol

Oh those ears too ❤️

I will have to get a good pic of his eyes for you – cause just wait til you see his eyes ❤️ I love his little eyes – and they look like people eyes … sometimes I am not sure if he understand things here and there? … he pee inside so I say no and take him out … well we were out there forever so he come over to me and cry because he wanna go inside …

So I said “No, not until you go potty – when you go potty – then we go inside”

And he ran over to the grass … peed and then comes right back to me lol … like he understood- his timing was perfect lol 😮❤️

He naps a lot… he will wake play and play – wear self out… and pass right out … he totally fits in because a bomb couldn’t wake him – just like my kids 😉 … at home he is my little shadow and if we sitting nicely or he sleeping and I try to get up – dude is on it!!! Lol

Boom he is right there with me lol … he love to play. He fit in so well ❤️ at work, everyone loves him

** he crawl up and snuggle with me on couch and we fell asleep together ❤️ my daughter woke us up to go to bed at 11:30 😮

Anyway – if have name suggestions let me know in comments 😊❤️ … for now I have to go back to sleep 💤

I love him so much ❤️ he’s such a good dog already ❤️

He is VERY different from a Chihuahua … I like that though…

I said to my daughter tonight … I am alone… by myself – if was chihuahua – what a chihuahua gonna do? Yes they attack – but ya know 🤷‍♀️ what does that do? It’s a chihuahua lol

But I will have bigger dog now – and he will probably have deep bark 😮😳 but is good – he be like protection for me ❤️ only he’s charming and friendly lol … the look and bark maybe scary eventually – but he soooooooooo sweet ❤️ total sweetheart ❤️

We training and gonna sign up for classes (obedience) so he gonna be soooooo amazing ❤️

Ok sleep – I need sleep so bad – work and puppy are kicking my ass lol

I have stories – but reminder for me about the older woman when she see him – I can’t I’m too tired

Good night 💤🌙😴 ❤️

      1. Because Dobby turned out to be the sweetest hero 🙂

        Dobby was a slave to the Malfoy family until Harry Potter rescued him and set him free and then Dobby became one of Harry potter’s biggest supporters and in the end Dobby died a hero.

        So you see, there is kind of similarity with your little ‘Chance’ and you and Dobby and Harry Potter.

        When you understand what Dobby went through you’ll understand why l thought Chance would be a cool Dobby 🙂

      2. Who doesn’t like it? Your daughter?

        Sometimes the best way is to not name the dog and just observe what the dog is all about. For the first month a dog will answer to almost anything, from ‘oy you,’ to ”what you want another wee again?’

        It’s all about tone of voice not name – so you could call Chance 100 different names before you settled on a name that meant something – let Chance decide what name he wants to be known by.

        Scrappy wasn’t called Scrappy for a good six weeks – she just reminded me of Scooby Doo’s side kick “Scrappy’ who was actually Scrappy Doo, whilst our Scrappy was mostly known as Doodlepip and Gertrude.

      3. Yes – is daughter … we both have to agree …

        I like Chance and Dobby is cute for little Doberman ❤️ but she doesn’t like that either …

        I have also suggested :
        Midnight – cause he mostly black (she complains cause he not all black lol… but I say those other colors are his ✨ stars) she doesn’t buy it 🙄

        Speranza which means “hope” in Italian

        Chomp – since he currently teething

        Ember – for the Cali fires

        Maddox – which means champion

        Finian – which means handsome

        Elgin – which means noble

        She turn all mine down 🙄

        She wants :
        Syrup – she has relented but will still check and see if is option but I really don’t like it – I have tried it out

        She also likes Toffee & Mochi

        I would like to not call out food and drink items ? Lol

        Maybe Javi? I haven’t asked on that one (not Java lol)

        But it is hard to have perfect name for him. By Sunday I want a name. 😮🙏

        We had a Chelsea – my oldest named her after some girl he liked 🙄

        Then there was a Chico… which I named because he was like a little man ❤️

        And Emmy had her name already and she was 6 when we took her

        So 🤷‍♀️🐕❤️

        Sunday is my cutoff – need name by Sunday – he will have been with us for one whole week!!

      4. Because I need to train him and he have no name to call, I also want him to have one and she will just keep having no name

        Nope – name by Sunday. Or I pick

        Is my own deadline for my new baby lol ✌️

  1. Haha wonderful!!
    I remember when my dog’s bark transformed from a puppy thing to a full-throated “hear you in next village” bark 😉 I loved his bark and his howls!
    Name’s gonna be tricky as you need something that you can say quickly but also not so silly that you can’t yell it in a public park 😉
    Over here, it is convention to give your dog a name starting with the same letter of the alphabet and that changes each year. I think we are on T this year. I bucked convention and it was really frowned upon by the vets! Good luck!

    1. What kind of dog was it?

      Haha that’s funny – I expect his to be powerful too – he has no bark yet – he doesn’t know he has one lol … yet 😳

      Yes exactly – I really want a good name for him!!

      I did not know was corresponding letter to each year

      Where do you find that out?

      What did you name yours?

      1. Was a cross between a Collie father and an Alsatian mother – both working farm dogs.
        Our neighbours told us about the need to pick a name starting with N before we even got a dog and when we picked this pup out at the farm, they told us the same. When we eventually picked him up – all the others in the litter had names starting with N except ours as we chose Myrdin (it’s one of the Breton names for Merlin! 😉 )
