Those puppies are just too cute! How about the name Coco (or you can spell it Koko). I'm so jealous (but not of the mopping up pee part!)


Since we just lost our beloved dog, I'd love to pass his name along for a boy. Argos. It was the name of Ulysses' dog who recognized him when he returned from his odyssey. And, for a girl, I suggest Artmesia because I love the fact that she was such a strong woman who overcame a lot of adversity to become a renowned artist. I admit they are unusual names but they look like unusual puppies. Love them!



Well , I think your little girl should be called "Alice" ... like Alice In Wonderland. Then I think you should call your biggest boy "Java" like coffee. It's also my boy pup's name and fun to use. Then the middle boy could be "Cappy" ....like "Cappucino". And for your smallest boy ....I would call him "Chip" as in chocolate chip.

These puppies melt my heart! They're just so darn cute!! For the girl, my suggestion would be Emmie/Emma (like Dorothy's Aunty Em in Wizard of Oz). The biggest boy looks like a Buster to me, and then there are Benny (next biggest boy) and Dexter (the runt). What fun!! I'm sure you'll have a great time picking out the names. Can't wait to read the other suggestions and see the names you pick!! Hugs, Cathy

robin foster

the puppies are soooo adorable! My grandaughter helped me come up with some names because she is so good at picking names. We think: Puppy #1: Digger
puppy #2: Scooter
puppy #3; Lucy or Winnie
puppy #4: Scamp

Suzanne Duda

I can't wait to see you this weekend and snuggle those puppies in person! xo suzanne


I like the name Tori for the girl or even Glinda(the good witch) since you already have Dorothy!
Zeke would be cute for one if the boys as that is the name of one of the farmhands from the Wizard of Oz.
Note- I love the Wizard of Oz!!!
Good luck and the pics are absoletuly adorable!!!

Julie Hayes

#1 Brownie, but Buster is a good one too
#2 Benji
#3 Lucy or Mrs. Beasley. She looks like a Mrs. Beasley and appears to have a similar personality to my beloved Mrs. Beasley that passed away last summer (just over a year old) unexpectedly.
#4 George. He looks like a George to me.


#1 Teddy, cuddly like a little Teddy bear
#2 Jake
#3 Alice
#4 Buster(Brown who lived in a shoe, okay hat, for now)lol
They are all so sweet!!!

Impressive puppies using litter~


I think the little girl should be Lucy. I just love that name. She looks like a Lucy.

Boys - #1 Bix (I knew a little boy - now all grown up - named Bix)

#2 - Henry

#3 - Riley (My dog is named Riley and I'm rather partial to the name!)



#1 Buster (I promise I picked it before I read the others')
#2 Squirt
#3 Sweetums
#4 Peek-a-boo
#5 Tag


So cute! How about Chewy, Sleepy, Hungwy and Thirsty? Or if you want the names more dignified, Sylvester, Alistair, Arabella and George? Or if you want absurd.... I could go on and on. I love naming animals! Patsy from HeARTworks


oooh, you have lots of contenders already Karla...i can't think of any names cute enough for these sweeties...i do like Bonnie's name for one of the boys...

Freda Butler

How about Toto to go along with dorothy. After all they are Kansas boys. Also adorable.



Diane ( Crafty Passions)

#1 boy~ Charlie Cinnamon
#2 boy~ Sugar Nugget
#3 girl~ Cordillia
#4 boy ~ Finigan

LOVE the new babies! Ahhhhhh I love puppies! Just gave my boys a spring time bath this weekend. Now they are snuggleishous!

Now for names:

1. The bigger boy: I like "Reese" - he looks like a peanut butter cup!

2.The smaller Boy: he looks a bit mischievous to me... what about "Hatter" also from Alice in Wonderland... lots of fans here I see. I am no exception!

3. The middle girl: This one is just for me. If I had a little girl I would name her "Story". I am sure that she will have given the new owner many stories to tell in her adventures to come!

4. The runt... small is nice just like a sweet "Cupcake"! She looks like a cupcake with her chocolate and vanilla frosting! So sweet!

Thats my shot at some names for these lovely babies! Congratulations on them! So gorgeous!

Michele Seraphim

Oh the last one is a little boy... hummm cupcake seems a little feminine so lets go with "Charlie" like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory... small but full of good spirit and good luck. Besides he looks like candy doesn't he!


I'm new to your blof so I missed what kind of pups they are. However, I reckon I can still come up with names... The middle sized girl should be Sassy, I think. The runt, Tiger, he needs a big name. Julia, Cassie, Alcazar for the boy...


Bigger boy- Gandalf
Smaller boy- Antonio
girl-Lucy Lu ,or Tinkerbell
Baby- Smidgen

Those puppies are adorable.

kelli hansen

We have a pup named Oliver and it makes me chuckle every time I say it. The tri colored one would be Tripalee and call him Tripp. We have a Maizee and another is Kiersha (like K-ear-sha). Kaelie is also fun.


Oh my those babies are too sweet.


o.k. I haven't read any of the previous comments so if I'm a repeat it is totally by surprise.



Honey Bear


Here are some of the rejects for our new puppy -- Dash, Nibbler, Pip, Lucy. I liked them all but the 3 year old owner chose Biscuit. Go figure!


No wonder you are worried about separation anxiety with these, they are as adorable as when they were newborns. Maybe more so.

Based on Dorothy (Wizard of Oz) and Bella (Beauty and the Beast), going for protagonist names from children's stories.

Girl names: Gretel; Alice (from Adventures in Wonderland, one of your household favorites, I believe); Scheherazade; Heidi; Anastasia

Boy names: Hansel; Nemo; Robin (Hood); Peter (Pan); Athos, Porthos, and Aramis; Mowgli

There, that should get some ideas going, and after reading the comments I know at least some are not repeats. ;-> Speaking of which, I liked the suggestions "George" (many children stories, including "George of the Jungle" and "Curious George"), "Charlie" (Chocolate Factory), and "Gandalf" (Lord of the Rings). Wish I had thought those up on my own, too.

PS The lamp looks even better in white than I had thought it would. Nice choice!


Hi Karla,
The puppies are precious!!!!!

#1 Boy - Beau or Bosco (love his color)

#2 Boy - Jack or Niles

#3 Girl - Chelsea or Tiffany or Tutu

#4 Boy - Patch or Max (Maxie)

They are just so sweet and I like the way the lamp
turned out! It looks great!!!

charmaine deadman

#1- Bloggins
#2- Penn (as in Sean Penn, cause he's being naughty sticking out his tongue.)
#3- Coquette, cause she looks coy and flirty with her eyes.
#4- Rorschach, pronounced "roshak", after the Swiss psychologist Hermann Rorschach who the inkblot test was named after. Your little guys spotted face reminds me of an inkblot test. :)

Karla, the lamp looks so much better painted!
Cute puppies! Have fun naming the little darlings. :)

Oops! Typo - puppy 1 should be Zeus

Zita - Mlle Magpie

OK, Karla, I think all the best names have been brought up now, and there are some great ones there. The only name that I think I haven't seen is Theodore, which could be Teddy for short. For some reason I see that littlest last guy as a Theodore (don't you think that name gives him some heft/importance?).

Jill at buckscountyfolkart.blogspot.com

How about:

1. Cooper
2. Tucker
3. Heidi

Well, puppy #1 is definitely a "Charlie". That should be obvious. #2 I'm not so sure of. I'm thinking "Scamp" from the Lady and the Tramp sequel.


These are names that I like for the pups.
1. Toby
2. Fred
3. Zoe
4. Calvin

2. Grunt
3. Cheekers after my recovering Sandy Cheeks:)

Since you seem to be going with the Oz, theme...I've thought about some names for several days. Here goes:

For the small boy: " Toto"

For the Middle boy: "Linus" after the cowardly Lion...

For the Striped Boy : how about : "Panda" Nothing to do with the Oz movie, he just looked like a Panda Bear to me LOL !
And, for the Middle female : how about " Emma" after Auntie Em, for the Oz movie...

Well those are my choices...
Love those bird houses, glad Twinks is ok now !

Deborah Woodrow

Karla, those names above, from the Oz movie, is from me, Deborah Woodrow...

Sorry it looks so confusing !

small boy ~ : "Toto"
middle boy ~ :" Linus"
Striped Boy ~ : "Panda"

Middle Female ~ : "Emma"

Hope some of these names are helpful ! Love those pups ! :)

susan edwards

My furboy's name is Mario and it's not used alot. For the baby girl I love Willow cause of the beautiful trees,baby boy with the white on him I would use Twix.I like Walt for the big guy for Walt Disney of course! Oh I just love all of your furbabies but naming them is so much fun.


When our dog had 3 boy puppies we named them, believe it or not....Shadrack, Meshack and Abendego....from the Bible. I guess that means the girl could be Jezebel!!


I would name the little parti pup Hootie Bear, the small boy Ringo, the big boy Hubey Do, and the girl Josephine (Josie). They are all so precious! I'm so relieved that Twinks is going to be ok.
