sasha_feather: ken watanbe with a horse and dog (ken wantanbe with pets)

My life feels so much more right now that I have a dog. She was dropped off at my house at about 7:45 this evening. Her name is Susie but that is probably going to change. Thorin Oakenshield? Neko? Feel free to make suggestions.

SE's Double Take aka Susie

A nearly all-white greyhound sleeping on the grass. She has a little light brown (fawn) color on one ear. This photo is from the adoption folks.

She's so beautiful! And you should totally name her Neko :D

Aw, what a beauty.

Can't wait til she's ready to meet your extended family!

Neko is nice, but quite different sounding to Susie. How about Woozy? Nookie? /going to be now.

Yay dog! She's lovely. :D

I second Jesse's point that you may want to choose a name similar to Susie, so she's less confused about who you're addressing. Some years ago I read a theory that dogs paid most attention to the vowel sounds in their names, so changing consonants is usually successful but changing vowel sounds is harder - I have no idea if this is still the prevailing theory.

Of course, if Susie is a name given by the foster family and not one she's had for years then perhaps she's not very accustomed to it anyway and would learn a new name of any kind with the same ease. In which case I vote for Neko. :)

Please feel free to disregard if name advice is not useful/welcome, of course. Yay dog, regardless!

I'm terrible at names. My dog got named after the street he was found on (or when he found his people, rather).

Awwww, dog! She is lovely! I hope you will have an opportunity to tell us all about her soon :) Like, what snacks does she like? Lying in the sun: best ever? These are important getting-to-know-a-dog questions.

Yes, all of these questions! <3

Though if she's anything like my hound was, almost all foods will be favorite snacks (as we quickly discovered when he went for my pizza). And some non-food items (Gum on the sidewalk? Om. Nom. Nom.).

That is a good plan, because in my experience all dog middle names begin with T or J. (I say, for Rorschach, "hello, Rorschach T Dog here.")

I wouldn't worry on the name sounding different things. It took Jack all of two days to learn that his name was Jack; he was found as a stray so we don't know his former name, but at the shelter he was 'Fabian' (he was there for three weeks on stray hold and then up for adoption) which he never learned to answer to.)

I think ALL those names sound great. :)

Awwww,my goodness, she's beautiful. Congratulations! So glad it worked out! I hope you get on together well. I love 'Neko' as a name... Thorin Oakenshield doesn't really roll off the tongue, though.
