We are struggling to choose a name for our new Briard puppy, expected to arrive from Vancouver this week via WestJet.

Top candidates so far are: Roxie, Rosie, Koukla (doll in Greek), and Leica. We had briefly dallied with the Yiddish word, Kishka, until Mr. Italo informed us that it meant “guts” or tripe.

Mr. Italo also suggested a contest on this blog, to solicit potential names that fit this breed and gender. The winner will get a free subscription to this blog 🙂 . Please submit your entry via the Comments. Wikipedia has a good description of the breed. The name should be short and “sharp” in sound.

Our pup’s grandad, is pictured above. From the web site for Triann Briards, our dog’s breeder.
