I think naming him after a knitting pattern would be very cute. I like Durrow. ;)

Michelle said...

That is the cutest dog I have ever seen. Aw. Look at his big brown eyes... okay, Michelle, get a grip.

How about calling him Baudelaire? Beau, for short. It's both literary and knitterly! The pattern is here:

As soon as my printer has a new ink cartridge, I'm printing this pattern out and getting started!

AWWWW... So cute!!! I had two dally's growing up... Their names were BamBam and Pebbles. He has some beautiful spots... Not too many and not too little..

We are about to get an addition to our house ALSO...

Whatever you decide on his name will be adorable!!! Ü

Awwwww- looks just like one I used to have back in high school - we named her Lady Raffles and she was sweet, so I'm sure you baby will be sweet too *wink*

Take care sweetypie,

Beautiful Dalmatian - he looks adorable. We have one (a girl called Lou-lou) who is 11 and still as playful as she was as a puppy. The only downside to them as a breed - is that they will anything (and I mean anything) and they will also roll in anything - the smellier the better.

I look forward to reading more about him and discovering his new name. I always said if I had a male Dally I'd call him Muldoon - as in Spotty Muldoon. I have a mate who rather cruely called her male Dally..........Zit!
