Puppy!, originally uploaded by russandval.

Ladies and gentlemen, we are proud to dog. Okay, he doesn't have a name yet. He's a Yorkshire, though a dog that small isn't the first choice for either of us. But he's sweet and precious and, as I said before, nameless. We will gladly hear your suggestions but here are a few things to bear in mind:

1. We'd like a fairly masculine name.

2. The name has to be relatively easy to say in Portuguese.

3. Val loves when pets have human names (Exhibit A: Virgil the cat) or are some obscure pop culture reference (See Exhibit A).

4. Russ has veto power.

Wow! He is soooo cute! And I am so jealous! We really want to get a dog, but we figure we should have a house and an income first! Congratulations!

As far as name, I think you should name hime something Portugese that is possible for English-speakers to pronounce.

I think it should be Bauer (24) or Santino (Project Runway: Season 2). Okay those are pretty wide on the pop culture grid but at least I didn't say K-Fed. He's a cutie by the way.
