Contest Tuesday...Name my puppy!
My daughter and I picked out this female, red, long-haired daschund in early June from a breeder about an hour away. She'll be ready to come home with us on Saturday, but my family has not been able to agree on a name!
I would love to have some kind of "literary" name for my sweet puppy. I suggested "Virgina Woolf," as a name, but my family didn't see the humor in that.
What better group of people to have help me with a name than a bunch of fiction writers? You come up with names for your characters all the time. Some of you even research your character names extensively. Take a look at that adorable face and tell me what name comes to mind. If the name of one of your favorite characters or authors might also make a good name for a dog, let me know that, too.
If my family picks the name you suggest, I'll send you a $10.00 gift card from Starbucks! Okay, even if my family doesn't agree with any of the names the Fiction Flurry audience suggests, I'll still send a gift card to the person who comes up with the most original name.
This Saturday, I'll post a new picture of the puppy once she's home and let you know what name we picked along with the winner's name. Good luck!
