We have a name!

OK-we’ve been considering a name for our new one

SAM_1068You understand we’re in the cowboy and Indian American Southwest where they name babies by what they see when the baby is born. I would have been named “Begging for More”, Kaci would have been “Toy in Mouth” and the new one would have been “Krap on the Karpet”.  My dogness, she went TEN times in the first 12 hours she was here-and we’re not counting piddles. She had ample opportunity to go outside. They left today for a while and wondered what would They find when They came home. It was absolutely nothing. We didn’t kill each other and there were NO accidents. She’s settling in. She slept on the humans bed last night with no problems.

That being said-we settled on a name. The reasons are:

1) You guys mentioned it most

2) It’s the one that she looks at us when called by it

3) Sparhawk Scotties (it had to be Fabi-the new pup there) who reminded us that Scotland was once called Caledonia.

4) Kaci agreed

SAM_1071The new name is …………

The envelope please


Here’s my take on it

SAM_1072Whatever. It’s nappy time.

  2. How exciting! Welcome, Kali. Your life is now an open book, like it or not!

  3. Aww Kali had the nervous shits cut her some slack Kyla.

    Aroo to you,

  4. A name is important and worth taking time on – think you nailed it!

  5. WoooooHoooooo!! Okays, furst, sorry I missed yesterday and the BIG EVENT of the little ones arrival!!! Holy dog piles!!! This is FABulous news indeed!!!
    Now, I LOVES that name!! Pawfect. I hopes you don’t have to share your green beans with the little one yet….though, with that face, how could you not? bol
    Congrats on the arrival and naming of Kali!!
    Ruby ♥

    • Yup, she eats green beans. Right now, the humans have to snap the frozen beans into sections no bigger that 1½ inches (about 4 centimeters). She’ll get used to having them bigger.

  6. Great name! She looks like Kaci, just black, to us. Welcome Kali!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  9. It looks like a very fitting name!

  10. Congrats on your new furfriend and her new name. Love the name.

  11. thats such a good name for this wonderful black pup. one of my sisters has the same name and she like it very much. I’m so glad Kali found a wonderful place at Casa Kyla.

  12. Wow – quicker than naming the royal baby! Super name …. we are sooooo looking forward to “hearing” her in due course – might take the pressure off you – you can sit back and do some snooooopervision!

    RoooOOoodles, Bobby & Fabi

    • I doubt that Kali will go down in history and others will remember her name, so we went with what was personal and what her friends (you guys) liked.

  13. Hi everyone! Does this work? Nobody speaks back at me.

  14. That is a great name! Welcome Kali!

  15. Oh, Oh, she is soooo cute! Welcome aboard Kali!
    Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy

  16. Welcome Kali. We hope that you have a long and happy life with your new family. Just remember to respect your elders- Kyla and Kaci. If you follow their lead you will not go wrong.

  17. Wait a minute….I step away from the office for ONLY A MOMENT and I come back to THIS on your blog?????????????????

    A NEW ONE???????

    Gotta go read the old posts to get up to speed.


    • Get with the program, Stu.

    • Yes, that rescue organization goes into kill shelters and takes death row inmates and tries to find homes for them. By taking Kali, there’s a hole to fill from those shelters and there’s room for another dog. The peeps paid more than the adoption fee (a donation). Heather at Lovebugs rescue does something similar in Southern California (which is really Northern Mexico from my point of view because I was born in Mexico).

  18. OMG! How long have I been gone! Contrats on the little sister Kyla! Tell your person we found a Buns of Steel hike last weekend and would be happy to huff and puff it again with Kaci and of course little Kali.

  19. O…M…D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We thought you’d dyed Kaci black!!! Oh…how exciting…we can’t believe we missed it all!! This is ALL mom and dad’s fault! We MUST go and read all about the new arrival.
    Welcome Kali! We love your name and hope you settle in with your sisters.
    Wally & Sammy

  20. Kyla! How did I miss this? Welcome, Kali!! Ooh, what an exciting time for your family. Now, Kyla….you must tell me: how did you get your peeps to do it? Can you share your secret with me? We MUST convince Scottie Dad to rescue another (or two!). Much love, The Scottie Mom.

    • Take Him to death’s row in a kill shelter. He’ll turn around quickly. If He doesn’t feel anything, He’s beyond hope. Both Kaci and Kali were there. Both of them are (to quote Tony the Tiger), “G-R-R-R-R-R-R-R-E-A-T”.

  21. Welcome Kali!! So happy to meet you! Seth is STILL in an adjustment period (almost 4 months) Bol! We think your name is perfect for you. Definitely a great choice.

    Braeden and Seth
