Our friends over at 2 brown dawgs left a a comment on our Wordless Wednesday ~ New Editions post wondering if I would be doing a post on why I picked the names for the pups, so here goes…

MISTY SHORES THE GREAT TITAN OF RO-LYNS; the call name Titan was actually my nephews idea and then together we came up with the registered name. In Greek Mythology Titans are one of a family of giants so since this guy has always been bigger than the other puppies we thought the name fit. For the registered name I hope to do great things with this guy and Ro-Lyns is my dear friends kennel name that  I co-breed with. Without her I would have never met my first Chessie twenty two years ago or been owned by my first Chessie, which by the way she gave me for my birthday in 1993.

MISTY SHORES MAIA ECHOING DREAMS OF RO-LYNS; the call name Maia is also from Greek mythology, she was the daughter of Atlas and the mother of Hermes which none of that had any bearing on my choice I just like the name and the spelling. Now the registered name has a great deal of sentiment behind it! I had been thinking of names since before Riva was bred for the little girl I hoped she would produce but nothing seemed to fit her once she was here. The other night I was thinking about Riva’s mother “Echo” who went over the rainbow bridge last year. I thought if it weren’t for Echo I wouldn’t have Riva or these precious little babies and then Maia’s registered just hit me, I should use part of her grandmothers registered name, CH Ro-lyns Mtn Dreams Echoing. So I played around with Dreams and Echoing until I had a good fit, so Maia’s name is a special remembrance of her grandmother.

So there you have it!

  1. Misty…somehow I missed that you are keeping TWO puppies! Are you crazy woman? LOL

    I love the names and it sounds like you put a lot of thought into it, Echoing Dreams of Ro-Lyns sounds so Lord of the Rings. I totally LOVE it.

    Tell me, have you had any experience raising…..boys? 🙂


    1. Jodi you really didn’t miss it, I didn’t say anything until the Wordless Wednesday post and honestly I only knew 2 weeks ago I was keeping him. Actually my brother and I will co-own him, he will pay for everything and I will do the training.

      I never thought of the name sounding Lord of the Rings, I love that! I was trying to have names that sounded majestic!

      I have had a male many many moons ago. I also pet sit for my friends males periodically for weeks and sometimes months at a time. The biggest challange is what 2 brown dawgs is facing right now, keeping them apart when the female is in season, but I do have a plan for that, outdoor kennels 😉

      ps yes I think I am a little crazy!!


We would love to hear from you!!
