Let's Play the Name Game

We are joining Frankie's special July 4 celebration! Alright, let's do a roll call...

I, Princess, the "mom of the piappies", was given this name by Mama (Mommy's mom) when she brought me home from a newspaper vendor who gave me up for adoption 2 years ago. It's been years since my hu-family last had a pet pup and she wanted a really special name for me. They thought of other names like Hoshi (which means star in Japanese) but Mama was already decided with Princess. She also calls me Princess Love!*smiles*

This is Me, Princess

Fudgie, our 2 year old (alright, almost, as it's his barkday on 10 July still) mixed chowchow, japanese spitz was born with blackish-brownish fur. They thought of names such as Chocolate Marble --- too long and Brittle --- since his brother was named Peanut (Peanut Brittle?!) but it was agreed that he be called Fudgie... Bear! He may not have gotten a royalty-related name but he was the one that had a throne. Everytime he would get a bath, he was placed on a special chair where he sleeps as his fur was being dried. Perhaps that was the reason he has become our pack leader. He is such a sweet and cuddly pup, too!

Fudgie on his throne...

Now for my first litter...

Frappie is the eldest and he really reminded Mommy of Fudgie. Our hu-family was thinking of names that were associated with the colors of their furs! As you see, you could distinguish each of them based on their colors so we tried to find names that can somehow connect him with his littermates. He was a bit darker when he was born so names like Coffee and Caramel came to mind but we could not think of a nickname then we thought, Frappucino sounds like a good choice, hence the name Frappie!

Frappucino aka Fra-Frappie

The next pup was born with light brown fur. She was a very really the playful one! Being the only female, they wanted to give her a name that was connected to being a Princess but she really did not display any sense of royalty. But hey, it did not mean that she is less loved but they did have to consider her being too adventurous when they were thinking of a name! Mommy gave her the name Mocha! Mama and Hu-uncle call her Princess Mokmok. *giggles*

Mocha also called Princess Mokmok

Guess it kinda follows that our white colored baby pup gets the name Sugar. The name perfectly describes him for he is the gentle one. He enjoys staying beside me and always finds his way to our Hu-family slowly for head pats and "facial massages". He is really such a sweet baby! He is also called Su-Shoo! Another thing about the name Sugar, Mama used to called Mommy's sister Sugar when she was a kid.

Sugar is the sweetest and most gentle of the pack

Now on to the Wai-Pups! These pups were the unexpected pups. At first, they were to be moving to new furever homes. You see, Mama had some friends who wanted to adopt them but these adorable ones became so attached to us that we all decided to keep them. When Mama made this decision, Mommy asked Hu-uncle to check out the net for possible names. No name choices based on color this time since they were both born with almost identical black fur! So different from how they look like today, right? Hu-uncle then said: "why not name them WIMAX and Wi-Fi since 1. it's like a his and hers names and 2. since the Piappies are getting more and more connected with the digital space, why not give internet-related names. Ok, not sure if we're making sense, but anyway, Mommy approved of the names right away for WIMAX included "Max" in his name and she was thrilled with the name that also serves as a tribute to our dear MaxDog! Mama on the other hand, said that maybe we should just change Wi-Fi to Wai-PAI since ... ok we share a secret with you now... Mommy used to be called "Pie-Pie" when she was growing up! And that's the story behind Wai-Max and Wai-Pai.

Wai-MAX who we also call Maxi Bear

Wai-Pai also known as Wai-PaiPai or Maxi-Pai whenever Mama gets confused with the names!

Now comes that exciting part, we wish all our furry friends Happy 4th of July! We love you guys! We love all your name stories and now, we continue to read more of your stories.
