New Addition!

6689137c562c269ba00ca7bab9719c64 So we are getting an addition to the family, a new dog. To be precise, a new Westie female. After Nikko I can safely say I will not get anymore boy dogs! We get her July 12th. I had always planned to get a third dog, and actually wanted to get one for the past two years. However issues came up which made me push it back. Some issues were financial, others were John bringing home MewMew kitty last year. I’ve told John at this point 3 kitties have to go to heaven before we get a new kitty! That’s gunna be a long time too, given most of our cats are between 1 and 6 years old. This should hopefully also keep him from springing some new kitten on me!

One of the main reasons I wanted a third pup is for Nikko. Princess is older than Nikko, and she probably will go to doggy heaven first. Though Nikko is a male, only a year younger, so he could go first. However I know if Princess goes first, Nikko will likely die of a broken heart. He’s that attached to her. Either way, I don’t want one dog left alone to die on me of sadness . . . then I’ll have no dogs and be even more sad! I also had planned to get a new pup when mine were around 6 or 7 and still feisty. I didn’t want to add one with older dogs who would just be annoyed with it. So mine are at the age where I feel they won’t be too annoyed with it, but if I wait any longer they might be. Plus this may help keep them young and active (not that they don’t chase cats around enough).

As for names, well I have several picked out. I just have to get to know her and her personality first and that will help me. The names of course have been picked from pop-culture, as were the previous two dogs’ names. I got a few good suggestions from friends, so here is the list so far with their origins . . . If you have an idea feel free to submit it!

  • Duchess – Because Princess is her older sister.
  • Jadis – The true name of the White Witch from the Narnia books (love the name, but not sure about naming her after an evil character)
  • Arilyn – After Arilyn Moonblade from a series of D&D books I loved.
  • Glinda – An Oz reference, which plays into Nikko (the name of the captain of the witch’s flying monkeys)
  • Khaleesi – From Game of Thrones and my favorite character . . . until the writer kills her off one day. Therefore I worry that name is jinxed.
  • Luna – A character from one of my favorite RPG games Lunar.
