Puppy - The One!

Well, the puppy is picked. We brought him home on Sunday. He's "stop you dead in your tracks" cute. Now, the name.....

We had been thinking about names for quite a while. A Google search proved helpful, but as usual there were just too many choices. We wrote down quite a few, but we wanted the name to match the little booger. Chewbacca was a contender, but didn't make the final cut.

Once home Bridger settled on Strider; the name of the Ranger in the Lord of the Rings who eventually became King of Gondor. Bridger desperately wanted Tintin; as in Tintin and Snowy by Herge. He has been reading those a lot, but he didn't know about Rin Tin Tin and the fact that it was a common dog name. We kept forgetting Strider and calling him Shredder, but Bridger didn't like that name very much.

Somehow, after a day or s0 we came up with Colter and it stuck. (I swear I didn't plan it) Bridger liked it - he said now Bridger and Colter are together again. So, now the little chewing rogue has a name, which by the way, he seems to have gotten used to it already.

The pictures tell it all... I've got to go and clean up an "accident".
