    That is one adorable puppy!

    The parents are lovely, too.

    He looks like a Josh to me.

    His markings are BEAUTIFUL!

    Everything about him is gorgeous. What a great, sturdy looking bone structure, and he radiates intelligence and poise.

    Thanks, I am SUPER excited! :D I cannot wait for him to come home! Trying at this point to figure out transport since he is in the middle of NOWHERE.

    I know, he's SOLID looking! The name I had liked the best does not suit the personality I see in the pictures. He needs a more serious name, less "fun" (I was leaning towards calling him Scorch before I saw the pic).

    I want a noun that makes people think of power or intensity. Or even a character from a book/movie that portrays that. Like Kastle's name is a strong name to me (Castle/fortress etc), but he was a K litter so I just switched the first letter. I am hoping for something strong/fast/powerful for this pup too. I don't really like human names for my dogs if I can avoid it. Suggestions welcome!

    I had a ton of names on my "list" but I've crossed off 75% since the picture. These are what is left and I'm not sold on any of them:
    Frost
    True
    Legend
    Mimic
    Edge
    Trend
    Risk
    Gamble
    Bane
    Rift
    Tonka

    I love Gambit as well. :) I love how everyone on here is getting breeds that I'm looking into as my future sports dog, so now I'll get a secondhand experience of what one is like. :)

    Any ideas for registered names as of yet?

    He's really good looking and sturdy. Very cute. I bet you can't wait.

    Those are some good ideas for names.

    Suspect, Hazard, Pride, One, Epic, Action, Drive, Fuel, Idol, Law, Truth, Trust, and... I'll stop. Some are already used (as are some of your list) by Flyball dogs I know but they're still some great names I think.

    More suggestions from friends:
    Lucius
    Vulcan
    Lycan
    Lucian

    (from Van Helsing/Underworld :) )

    I am a huge blogger too so he will probably have his own blog outlining his training and all of his sports/accomplishments. I'm behind on the other two about a month but I always catch up :)

    I have loads of ideas but need to narrow the call name down first. I love that it starts with Brokenstirrup - think that is such a cool kennel name.
