We joyfully announce the
adoption of the cutest puppy ever,
BARCLAY! Adopted into our lives on
Saturday, February 9th, 2008.
Barclay is a AKC registered Maltese puppy.
He was born on October 5, 2007.
He is 4 months old.
And he weighs almost 5 pounds.
He's super loving and playful. If you hold him and pet him, he will kiss you all over! He loves the kids and will play with them for hours! He loves his chew bones and is doing really well on his potty training! He's sleeping thru the night a bit better....although we had a rough few nights! He isn't a bit afraid of the cat and I honestly think he thinks he's bigger than the cat. (the cat is 22lbs!) He'll take on that cat and wrestle with him! It's hilarious!!! He's not a bit afraid. He loves riding in the car. Surprisingly, he doesn't bark often. Only when he wants out of his crate! (and then he barks and whines, A LOT!!)
On our way to pick him up....we were trying to come up with a name for him. Everybody was throwing out ideas.
Of course, Big Daddy wanted to be ironic with his name....
...something like Killer.
Seriously, could you call
So...I rejected that one real fast.
Logan and Jensen suggested lots of things, but nothing that sounded "right."
Griffin wanted to keep his name, Charger, but I didn't like it.
To me, this dog is fancy. He needs a "fancy" name.
Something that sounds regal....something that is not ordinary.
From the carseat, we hear Marinne say, "I want him to be named Cereal!"
(why don't we just name him Captain Crunch?!?!?)
Although, I do think it's hilarious she came up with Cereal all by herself,
I told her I think we'll try to think of another name.
But, as I sat there thinking.....I did find a massive amount of humor in the fact that would could incorporate 2 suggestions and name him...
(wait for it.....)
HA HA HA HA HA!!!!! ROFLMBO!!!!
And I actually considered it for about 2.4 minutes, before I thought better of it!
Back to the "serious" names....
Sebastian (nope, that the fish in Little Mermaid)
Christian (isn't that a boy?)
Riley (can't use that....Ike's bosses dog)
Chase (kinda too funny)
Then, I suggested BARCLAY.
(pronounced: Bar - Clay)
But, the kids said it like..... Bark - Lay.
Which they thought was hilarious....because Bark is in his name.
So, it was decided.
And Marinne pronounces it like...
Bark-A-Lee. (sorta like Broccoli)
It's so funny!
BARCLAY, it is.
After bringing him home for a few days, we've thought of some
other names that might have been fitting.
VC....for vacuum cleaner (since he eats anything off the floor!)
High Maintenance (self explanitory)
Lover (he's such a little lover)
Pain in the a$$ (um....let him keep you up
whining for hours and you'll understand!!)
Baby ('cause he's such a little baby!)
Piddle (umm....how many oops have I cleaned?)
Money Bags (what he's gonna cost me....after $109 vet bill yesterday)
GOOD THING WE ALL REALLY LOVE THIS DOG!!!!!
Welcome to the family, Barclay.
(or whatever your name is!)
