I've often turned to you in the past for advice on things and I've always valued the information I've received in return. So it is with great hope and optimism that I bring the following contest to you.
I'm getting a new puppy. Yep, Smelly Ellie is gonna get a little sister. She is an adorable one-year-old insanely energetic little puggle (i.e., pug/beagle mix) that I found through Becca Riker's wonderful Secondhand Mutt rescue operation.
Here's the catch: The gorgeous gal above is named "Punkin."
Some of you might like it, some of you might not.
But I can't think of anything else, and while she is still enjoying her time at the Mutt Hutt before I bring her home permanently, I'd like the awesome staff there to be able to start getting her used to her new name.
So, I come on bended knee to you, humbly seeking your assistance. The winner of the contest - that is, the person who either suggests the name I ultimately go with or the one that makes me then think of the one I ultimately go with - gets the following: a custom made mix-cd featuring my favorite tracks of 2009, a gift certificate to the Waterloo Road establishment of your choice, a photo Smelly Ellie & Puppy X together, and my eternal gratitude.
Cool? Then start making suggestions now! (FYI - You can send them in either via email to clevelandbachelorATgmail.com or in the comments section below.
