    Permission to swoon, please?!?!?!?


    Permission granted, although I suspect you, too, presented me with a fait accompli ... I don't want to know the person who can resist those faces.


    Oh sweet Jebus...both my ovaries just exploded. What a mess! And the pain! And yet,it was worth looking into those innocent and furry visages. Who can resist those faces? A pox on the big bully dogs who park at these sweeties. This is the universe calling, Nils. Finding good homes for these babies is now your sacred duty. It we lived closer and if we didn't already have two dogs, three cats and a snake...I'd take one in a heartbeat.

    Bucky Four-Eyes

    John, Paul, George, and Ringo?

    Bucky Four-Eyes

    Groucho, Harpo, Chico, Zeppo?

    Bucky Four-Eyes

    Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, and Ralph?


    Tinky-Winky, Dipsy, La-La and Po?! Beautiful fluffy balls of doggy cuteness! You have to keep one. I have had two retrievers, one called Sam and one called Harvey. We also had a Border Collie called Sam (already named when we got him).

    I expect video by morning. :)


    I think you should seriously consider investing in tile floors. ;)


    Im delurking to offer my suggestions. Kris here in Las Vegas. Not where I found your blog but I love your humor.
    My suggestions:

    Ralph Waldo (or RW), Walt, Willie Shakes (or just Willie or Shakes) and Twain.



    (sorry, a little purple-minded with the Baltimore Raven's VS Indy Colts - grrrrrrr-the-grudge---grrrr - the game is saturday!)


    Eeny-Meeny-Miney-Moe. That is the first thing I thought of. Not very literary but awfully clever I thought.

    (does anyone remember the "eeny-meeny-miney-moe, catch a tiger by the toe, if he hollers make him pay fifty dollars everyday" from their childhood? or was it just a Southern thang?)


    If the puppies get really naughty you could threaten to name them Bush, Cheney, Rove, and Rumsfeld.

    But don't. The puppies are way too cute.

    I think Laura's right about the tile floors. Maybe you could tile your office floor and put a drain in. Let's face it - Allie's not going to stop bringing home adorable puppies.


    Who, What, I Dunno, and Why. Oh gawd, they're cute!


    Themed names:

    MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE, JOHN (no, I am not particularly religious, and certainly not Christian fundamentalist; they were just four themed male names, and... I kinda like 'em.)

    MICKEY, DONALD, GOOFY, BUGS (just showing you my real colours, heh, heh...)

    MIKE, MAX, MOE, MEL (the theme? alliteration, of course!)

    O.K. That's all from me. I need to take a break from puppy cuteness. Gotta get prepared. Because I know the cuteness factor is going to multiply over the next few weeks.

    (Allie: Good for you. I just knew that your first "puppy foster home" adventure would not be the last.) :-)))


    I *really* like John, Paul, George, and Ringo. Awesome, Bucky.

    And Nilbo? Can I please, pretty-please have that first one? I'll pay for shipping.


    This was a fun dinner time chat for me and M.
    Thanks, Nilbo!

    Here's what we came up with.

    Earth, Wind, Fire and Water
    North, South, East and West
    Spring Summer, Autumn and Winter
    Club, Spade, Heart and Diamond
    Larry, Curly, Mo and Schemp
    Daltry, Townshend, Moon abd Entwhistle
    Clark Kent, Bruce Wayne, Peter Parker, Dr. Bruce Banner

    The Four Horsement of the Apocalypse
    White, Red, Black, Pale

    The Four Noble Truths of Buddhism (kind of ironic)
    1. Life means suffering.
    2. The origin of suffering is attachment.
    3. The cessation of suffering is attainable.
    4. The path to the cessation of suffering.

    The Four Chaos Attractors
    1. Point
    2. Cycle
    3. Torus
    4. Strange


    Unbelievable! They are even cuter than the last litter!


    Sweet Pea's idea for names (even after explaining to her they were all boys) -- "Three of them should be named Lily, and one should be Ashley."

    My ideas for names:

    Faith, Hope, Peace, Love

    Waffles, French Toast, Cinnamon Rolls, and Bagels

    Coke, Pepsi, 7Up, Root Beer

    Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Fudge Ripple

    Fonz, Ralph, Potsie and Richie

    Dammit, Jaysus, Stopthat and Getawayfromthere

    They are adorable, Nils... boy are you in trouble... get the tile floor with the drain in the middle. You'll need it.


    Winken, Blinken, Nod, Shoe.

    Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo.

    Westley, Inigo, Fezzik, Vizzini.

    Kronk, Stitch, Shrek, Scrat. (say that ten times fast)

    (I'm not sitting in front of my DVD shelf, I swear)

    And keeping with the family's theme of names from musicals:

    Raoul, Tony, Amos, Rolfe.

    (Phantom of the Opera, West Side Story, Chicago, Sound of Music)

    okay, I'm done.


    Okay, we really might have to do the Ninja Turtle thing.

    Or, for Kalki: (Uncle) Jesse, Jake (in Progress), Tony (Gates), and Stamos.

    However, since our matriarch has decided that she absolutely must keep one, we'll let her name that one and go from there.

    (Hee hee hee)


    oh my god...for serious, the cuteness does kill. How can you stand it?

    Love the Beatles name suggestions!


    They are so so so cute.I loved the pictures.Had posted similar ones on my blog, sometime back when a 'dog who belongs to nobody' had her pups.


    Keep 'em coming, kids ...

    For more puppy goodness, check out the blog Allie set up for the gang at ...


    Ralphie, Randy, Flick and Schwartz

    Heuy, Dewy, Louie and Donald

    Spanky, Darla, Alfafla, Buckwheat

    ARchie, Betty, Vernica and Jughead

    Tibia, Fibula, Radius and Ulna

    Again you are all doing a wonderful thing. Two days ago I just blogged about the horrid pet overpopulation problem we have herein the US. No excuse for it really.


    I may be a little late but I would suggest-Boggie, Birdy, Putter and Bunker.

    Or Bogart, Spencer, Gable and Cooper.


    after reading all the suggestions--I like Sweet Pea's idea--teehee and the TMNT names--Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michaelangelo--that would be so cute!


    Un, deux, trois, quatre


    Love your love story! Especially since my mom grew up in Canada. The dogs are cute. Reminds me of a friend of mine whose dad was a civil engineer and his four kids had the following nicknames: Rusty, Dusty, Sandy and Rocky.


    Hee, Allie, you rock. For Nils to call for Stamos, and snuggle Stamos, and surely even smooch Stamos from time to time....such poetic justice.



    I like William's suggestion of Bogart, Spencer, Gable, and Cooper. :)

    I was also thinking of the movie "The Fox and The Hound" and the names in there - Tod and Copper - but that is only 2 for that particular theme.. but the other two could be Chip and Dale. All Disney characters? Even if they are from different movies. :)


    oh i am so lame- totally missed the fact that they are all of the male variety d-oh


    Muppets - Go with Muppets


    Take your pick! :)


    Muppets - Go with Muppets


    Take your pick! :)

    Bucky Four-Eyes

    Boobs, Hoots, Tits, and Bazongas?



    They're BOYS...

    Bucky Four-Eyes

    Okay then -

    Balls, Nuts, Jewels, and Tallywhacker.


    my little girl was thinking and said- (because she is so talkative at 16 days of age)-why not musketeers? Athos, Porthos, Aramis and D'Artagnan?
