To make an excruciatingly long story short, before Millie was born there were some problems with her mom, and at 10 years old I asked if there was even a tiny little millimeter's chance that the puppies would be okay. They were and for several reasons we picked Millie and named her that in honor of my prayer of a millimeter's chance.
I don't usually like really common names but I had for some reason thought the name Lucy was adorable. It was already on my "possible names" list before she came home. The day before we went and got her there there was a terrible case of a sweet little GSD puppy who was the victim of horrendous, unspeakable abuse, and died as a result of it. The rescuers named her Lucy before she died. The puppy touched my heart and sealed the deal; Lucy is also named in tribute to that puppy.

Default The Chipmunks

My significant other was convinced I'd run after the dog screaming A L V I N ! like the guy in the Chipmunks Xmas song (and I do). So the first dog is Alvin. The second pup is Simon (pronounced Si MON). There is no Theodore and right now, with 2 puppies, I don't see a Theodore in the future either.

The name of our first dog was candy. I don't know but I just find it very sweet and actually, the dog is so cute. I thought of a cotton candy. It's sweet, so cute to look at and something that I just love. I decided to name it Candy. Well, that's the story behind my dog's name.

With Molly, we got a list of names from hubby's niece that she had written when deciding what to name her dog. I went through, picked the ones that I liked, and let Hubby have the final say, and he liked the name Molly

Hailey was already named when we got her from the shelter.
Once our eyes are opened,
we can't pretend we don't know what to do.
God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls,
knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act.

With Sally I just liked the nae but thought it was too old fashioned to ever name a kid. When we got Jack, he was *supposed* to be called "Cole" but I didn't end up picking a black lab. The breeder wanted to be able to call him by his name for the week until we picked up and I'm a "Nightmare Before Christmas" fan, so the name "Jack" just kind of fit with "Sally."

~Christina--Mom to:
Sally--8 yr old pit bull mix
Jack--6 yr old Labrador
Sadie & Runt--12 yr old calico DSHs
Pickles & Kiwi--3 yr old white winged parakeets
Yoda--1 yr old Quaker parrot
Solo--12 yr old Senegal parrot
Sheena--Quarter Horse--3/24/86-6/23/11--Rest Easy Sweet Girl~

Labs do it in the lake.

I got Murphy from the shelter where they named him Sarge (ugh). He didn't respond to anything really and I'm a big fan of Celtic names (also I was really into Flogging Molly at the time - an Irish punk band) and Murphy just fit.

Mu was kind of accidentally named. She was originally supposed to be named Pants since I call Murphy Murphypants anyway but it didn't fit. Then I thought "Hmmm. Cow dog...cows moo...Mu!!" Not realizing at the time that Mu is a greek letter as well. Oh well. It fits.

Jackson came from Johnny Cash's song "Jackson." We had just seen the Walk the Line movie a few days before getting him on TV and it stuck! He just looked like a Jackson!
