Looking for Suggestions!

There's a new puppy in town!
He stopped by to introduce himself.


Miller thought he could keep him.

But he belongs to Cooper's friend, whose good friend, Duke, just passed away.

He came to tell us Ranger could keep the red collar, in Duke's memory.



And asked for us to find him a name. One with good German stock, a manly sort of name for a German Shepherd puppy. Any suggestions?

SO sweet. I love puppies. That was very nice of her to give the collar to Ranger. I'm thinking on the name...

The two names I thought of right away were Cooper or Schenewark. Schenewark is a strong German name.
Miller does look awfully adorable with that puppy in his arms!

The boys' names (in order) in German are: Müller, Säge, Mitarbeiten, Portier, Jäger, Gerber und Förster (Ranger). Jäger would be spelled Jaeger (pronounced YAGER with a long A). All the ä's are spelled 'ae' in English. I had a boyfriend once in Germany was Dieter *smile* or you can try Wolfgang, Johann, August, Axel, Hans, Franz, etc. Oooh hold on a sec, here's another list with names (Have fun and keep us posted!) http://german.about.com/library/blname_Boys.htm

You need a name that the dog will answer to as well. Ann, those names are something else--especially Mitarbeiten!! By the time you called the dog that, he would be on the next street! My brother had a shepard whose name was Dante. Good luck with the names. Looks like a lot of fun trying to pick one out. You could name him Brauneis and call him "Braunie" (Smile)

Miller needs a little puppy. He is just so cute smiling with it.

What a sweet little scene! How did you ever send the puppy home?
We have a little wiener (schnitzel) dog, second cousin twice removed to your German friend.
The name Gunther comes to mind, keeps with your family tradition of names :)
