Dog names — We’re taking suggestions

The problem with kids growing up is that they move out — and they take their dogs with them!

We went from everyone living at home last summer to being empty nesters, losing two wonderful labs in the process. Now seems like the perfect time to consider getting a dog of our own.1 Because the dogs that left were chocolate and yellow labs, it feels right to get a black lab to complete the set.

Names we’re2 currently considering are:

  • Shadow
  • Pepper
  • Darth

Do you have any suggestions for us?


  1. No, were not thinking about having more kids, too… ;-) 
  2. Okay, these are names I’m currently considering. Suzi’s probably wondering why I want to go through the puppy stage again.
