Kirby was named after a character in a book, she was strong, smart and independent, it was a good choice because our "Princess" is too. And she is a PRINCESS

Carlee, Duddy and Troopy were named at the rescue and we liked the names so kept them.

Vanessa, Kirby, Carlee, Dudley & Trooper

I've had 13 goldens over the years and one name stood out from the rest, Capone! aka Pony, he had a traumatic birth resulting in a cut along side his face which scared... hence the name Capone (after scar face Al Capone)

Our pup's name is Arya.

She is my husband's first dog ever in his life. He is in his 60's. And, our little girl is his first dog! He had the honor of selecting the pup we would take home and he had the honor of naming her.

My husband tends to stutter. And, since vowels are the best way to start and support speech for him - we focused on names that started with vowels.

Arya just came naturally to him and we both love the fictional character.

Rosie: my Nana Rosemary had passed away and had left part of her inheritance to her many grandchildren. We used the money to buy a TopBrass golden. We chose a girl and named her Rosie after Nana, Rosie had beautiful gold yellow coat. Best pup. It all worked so perfectly.

I like having dogs with a “human” name. My first golden, Ella, died of lymphoma May 2018. Immediately I knew I needed another and started looking. Went through a bunch of names and “Stella” was the only name I kept coming back to. People kept saying, “but won’t you call her Ella?” And my reply was, “No. they’re two different names.” But when I found out that Stella was born on the same day as Ella, just 11 years later, I was certain I’d made the right name choice. Funny thing is she has assumed her “position” to watch where everyone is at every moment just like Ella did.
