Rock and Roll Star Puppies!


Midge thanks you for all the encouragement and well wishes you sent to her! She sends you lots of doggy kisses and tail wags. She is one very happy mother-to-be.

She has even more reason to be happy. Her puppies are going to be rock and roll stars!

All of our litters have a theme, and the puppies' names have something to do with that theme. Our most recent litter was the Crayon litter, with names like Shamrock, Lavender, Sienna, Onyx, Rusty, Denim and Slate. We've had Royal puppies named after Disney princes and princesses and Tree puppies named after, of course, trees.

It's a tradition in SSD that the breeder caretaker or the mother's puppy raisers choose the theme. Midge's puppy raisers have chosen, and the theme is...

...Rock and Roll Stars of the 60s and 70s!

Naming the Puppies

How would you like to help us name the puppies?

Before the puppies are born, the breeder caretaker or the puppy raisers compile a list of possible names for the puppies. Would you give Midge's puppy raisers a hand and suggest some names for her puppies?

This is not a contest. We're just looking for some suggestions. Midge's puppy raisers will use your suggestions when they choose the puppies' names.

All of the names must have something to do with the theme, Rock and Roll Stars of the 60s and 70s. You may suggest more than one name. Make sure you list both male and female names.

We'll announce the puppies' names when they are born. Midge is due to give birth between May 23 and 25.

Just leave your puppy names in the comments!

We can't wait to read your suggestions!
