Give "What's His Name" a name poll!

Well....First I, (and "What's His Name") really want to thank you all for your comments and name suggestions! I'll leave this open for 2 days and then we'll see which name we go with.

The good part is that I can use up the other 12 names above for the NEXT 12 dogs I find (that's sad actually)! Thanks everyone....now do your duty as a citizen and vote!

(I set it up for 1 vote each, but you can change your vote if you want)
Now no making up 10 different vegweb names and voting 10 times for the name you submitted! (Remember....DICK Cheney is watching)!

of course I had to vote for the name I submitted - Grunden!  ;)

Although Captain Beefpaws is pretty funny, I like the meaning of Grunden.  :)

Just voted for Lagnaippe--I love the meaning "unexpected gift."

I didn't submit my own suggestion because I like people names for animals and I knew it wouldn't fly here. Somehow I think giving an animal a "people" name is dignified and respectful, but someone on the other thread mentioned "special" names for this dog and I think that the general opinion is that people names aren't special enough.

I've had cats named Vincent, Victoria, Abby.  Dogs named Jeffry, Jean-Luc (yes, Picard--what can I say, I'm a total nerd), Violet. Birds named Bert, Willy, and Jose, and the injured Pigeon Carl who decided to stay with me even when he was all better. :)  They are all pretty special to me, even with boring people names.  All these names are wonderful too--I had a hard time choosing :)

I myself, am not voting.....I'm leaving it up to all of my friends here at vegweb  8)!
I just spoke to my vet, and she told me he (What's His Name) is doing great this morning!...She said he's being very playful and has a great appetite (he's on a raw diet). She's going to email me a pic later.....when I get it.....I'll post it here!

Thanks again to all of you!  :)

Wow CherBear!
Your name choice seems to be in a big lead!....no "hanging chads"now ....we might have to bring in "dubya"s Supreme Court to investigate and stop any recount if I find any funny business! >:( ;)

you know I'm kidding....great name (they're allgreat names)!....thanks!

I voted "brother" because something in it just resonated for me.  They're all such wonderful dog names though... and I'm shocked that so far there are no votes for "dee-oh-gee," which seems to me to echo Dave's special sense of humor!

I think Captain Beefpaws is one hell of a funny name!  I've been calling my omnivore brother by it since I read it!

What great names!  I think Captain Beefpaws is hilarious.

exactly my thoughts. i, however, voted for something else that rolls of the tongue better and is less likely to get crazy looks at the dog park (well, not that you might mind but we have to be sensitive to "whats his names" feelings! i always give my pets respectable names because, well, i don't think i'm better than them (i don't mean that as it sounds, but you know what i mean). they do, however, get silly nicknames (puddin' paws is one of them, as is "fun buns"--i know, dont ask)

If CAPTAIN BEEFPAWS doesn't win for his regular name, it should definitely be his silly nickname!

ALL of my dogs have silly nicknames! I think they actually answer to their nicknames more then they do their real names! :D (Or maybe they just like to ignore me sometimes.......)

i usually give my pets odd names which turn into much more odd nicknames.

most of my pets nicknames have nothing to do with, and sound nothing like their real names.....my dog Shelby....is hip hop?!

i always find myself nicknaming my already nicknamed animals. when all is said and done i've given their nickname a nickname that was a nickname of another nickname.
