A Good Old Fashioned GDB Name Game

Exciting news Everyone! My leader just got her Golden assignment! She will be receiving a male golden retriever. He is going to be a Mazel and Pebbles puppy (check out the GDB blog to see littermate photos). There are only two males in the litter. She is very, very excited about getting a Pebbles puppy because Pebbles is her last Golden's (before Colorado) "niece." Pretty cool huh?

So, I've been thinking real hard about what the rules of this name game are going to be and I think I've decided. So, here are the Rules.

1. Since he is a Fun Day puppy this game will close on July 30 at midnight. For those of you who are going to Fun Day you will not have to wait to know the name. For those of you who are not going to attend Fun Day this year I will post to winner and the name on July 31 after we get back to the hotel.

2. You can post as many names as you want...but! you can only post one name every 12 hours. Basically once a day, but let's say you post one name at 8 in the morning. You could post another name at 8 in the evening. This can increase you chase of winning. But please, don't stay up till 3 in the morning to post. You have about 3 weeks.

3. You may guess a name that has already been guessed, but you will not be mentioned as a winner. And if I can get the same prize as the other name game the person who first posts the name will receive the prize and the title of winner. So, be creative. We all know that GDB can come up with some weird names.

4. If you're not having fun then you're playing the game wrong.

5. If you guess his brother's name then you too will be counted as a winner and will receive a prize.

6. You can also guess if he's going to be the biggest male or the smallest male if you wish. You can only guess this one once. Since it is only a 50/50 chance what I will do is write down all the people who guessed the size right and attach the pieces of paper to Rocco's toys. Whichever one he chooses first is the winner of the weight. I will do this over and over again if there are more names than toys.

Ok, those are the rules. If you have any questions please email or massage me. Or you can post a comment too. So, now is the moment you've all been waiting for. The litter letter. The new little golden will be litter letter....

L!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ready, Set, Go!

  3. I'm going to guess Loden! I don't think his name is in use right now, but it'd be neat! Loden was my second puppy from GDB :-)

  4. I am going to guess smallest male.
    Linus! Like in the Peanuts :)

  5. I'm going to guess Luigi because it's a nice Italian name just like Rocco and it was one of Lunar's brothers names :-) Can hardly wait for Mr. L

  6. Oh forgot to add we're hoping for the largest male :-)

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'm going to say he's the largest male and guess that his name is Lucas.

  8. Licorice :)
    That word has such weird spelling!

  9. Erin, I hope you don't mind but I'm posting a name from Toni, she likes Loyal. I think that's a great name for a guide!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Loyal graduated with Freya. I don't think that'll be it. :) But I do love the name.

    ReplyDelete
  11. How fun! I'm going to guess Lancelot.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I have Larry and Lancelot up on my board of guesses. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Already I meant. My brother and I have been coming up with a lot of names, but I'm not entered in the name game so no worries.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I think Lancelot would be a really cool name for a dog :) Today I'm guessing Lassen (like the mountain).

    ReplyDelete
  15. There's a Leroy out there already. He went to a club really near mine. He's so cute and apparently really good. He's a Vintage and Tiburon puppy I believe and I think about a month younger or oler than Rocco.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Dang I like Leroy. And Lincoln was my next guess! So how bout Loco ;)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I like Maddie's pick of Loco! Goldens can be quite loco at times. Really, we were thinking Lupe (could be a girl's name though), as goldens can be a bit Loopie sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ok so I know this is a girl's name and I'm completely wasting a guess...but I really like Layla! :) And heck, since I'm wasting a guess on a girl's name, I'm throwing in another girl's name...Latika. You can just count Layla as my guess for today though :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love Ludwig- what a great name!
    Today I'm guessing Lark.

    ReplyDelete
  20. This is another Toni suggestion - Limerick

    ReplyDelete
  21. Lang

    Anybody who is interested can go to my blog and guess their favorite names in my name game :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I believe there is a Laker already out there as a working Guide, but I can't remember if he graduated or not.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ahh, Leo was my next guess :-) So, I'm guessing Latrell.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm going to post a recap of Rule #2. You may only post one name once every 12 hours. If you have posted more than one name in a post then I am only taking the first one. I have seen this a couple of times and I feel as if I need to remind everyone of this. It will increase your chance of winning if you take the names that you posted in earlier posts and spread them out. Thanks!

  25. Lupin. Just finished watching Harry Potter :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. This is probably a girls name..but I like Luna

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love love love Luna - although it might get a little confusing because our cc'd male black lab is named Lunar. It would be cool to have a Lunar and a Luna!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Lefty. Brenna & I are both left handed :-)

    ReplyDelete
  29. And Lefty goes with Rocco because they both sound like Mobsters' names. :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh Erin, that would be hilarious. I can just imagine the look on someone's face when they ask us "What are your cute guide dog pups names"? Rocco & Lefty :-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Brenna picks - "Lumpy" - even though the enormous one on the blog is not this litter :-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I belive there's a Ludlow out there already. And whoever guessed Logan there's a lab/golden cross that just graduated in June named Logan. And it can't be Levi because that's one of the sisters' names. Yes, I know the girls' names.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Levi should be a boy name...lame! haha :)
    Umm....how bout Lucky!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Luxor, Linus, Labyrinth, Locust, Latte, Laertes, Lamar, Lambert (home of throwed rolls! he he)

    ReplyDelete
  35. This one doesn't count as one of my comments because this is for Mary who does not have access to the internet since she's already headed up to Fun Day.

    Mary guesses...Lawyer.

    ReplyDelete
  36. It's past midnight my time..but it's not your time, so I hope my last guess still counts! ... Lewis! :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Definitely counts as long as your comment post time wasn't past midnight and it wasn't. :)
