Name this dog


I came home from a jam-packed weekend to my husband, my three children, my dog and… a new puppy. Welcome fucking home.

I’m not too thrilled about the newest member of our family, but Jeff has wanted a puppy for years and I was sick of fighting him. He wore me down and in my sleep deprived state I didn’t forbid him.

So. We have a puppy and I get the privilege of naming the 4 month old creature. Lucky me.

Anyone want to help? All I can come up with is Damn Dog and the kids are having trouble pronouncing it.

    If you don’t fall in love with that dog, I will come steal him. So there’s that.
    And obviously, his name is Lucifer. You may call him Lou.

    I once had Air Force neighbors who moved next door after spending a tour of duty in Japan. The hubs told us about their puppy, Di-o-gee. Being a geek, I asked what that meant in English, assuming it was Japanese.

    “The same thing it means in Japanese – D.O.G.”

    Yeah, I’m stupid, but I loved the em-phas-is being on the wrong syll-ab-le. You could call the little cutie Gee, for short.
