Vizsla Name Ideas

Happy almost-New Year! Anyone getting a new puppy in 2013?

At my husband's suggestion, here's a list of 10 Vizsla Names for 2013: Popular names that seem to be trending, based on reader responses on Facebook, Vizsla's we've met, plus a dash of my own opinion - in other words, not based on any sort of statistics at all :-)

So here we go- in no particular order, great names for new Vizslas in 2013:

  • Boagie - This was actually one of the names in the running when we were deciding what to call Captain. It sounds distinguished and fun at the same time, and I love it. 
  • Riley- We've met quite a few Vizsla Rileys, and have heard about others. It's cute and playful and works for a boy or girl!
  • Molly- Molly seems to be a common and universally loved dog name. My grandfather's lab was named Molly, and I will forever love her- and this name. 
  • Penny- Another common, cute, playful girl's name that seems particularly well-suited for a Vizsla!
  • Whiskey or Rye- A Facebook fan posted that he has a Whiskey and a "Ry" (short for Myriah, sounds like Rye)- I love the originality, the fact that these names suit their color, and the boozey reference ;-)
  • Arrow- From another Facebook fan- OK, maybe it's not so common or "trending", but I listed it because I love how unique this name is, and how it evokes thoughts of speed- perfect for a Vizsla!
  • Chase - Another speedy name!
  • Ollie- Spunky and cute but still a little traditional- fits the Vizsla well.
  • Sadie - Another cute girl's name.
  • Ellie- We have met a few Ellies and Allies and it suits their happy energetic personalities.
Of course, my favorite male name is, not surprisingly, Captain  :-)  For more on why and how we picked this name, see my name post. But wait, there's more- read on for more names!

Merry Captain Christmas!

Merry Christmas from Captain! 

Captain had fun sharing his version of the 12 days of Christmas with everyone this year!
For a recap, here's what Captain brought to me on each of the 12 days of Christmas:

and an Owl Ornament in a Christmas Tree!

Hope everyone is enjoying some family time, relaxing and snuggling with your dog, cozying up under some blankets, enjoying good food and good company.  

Best wishes to you and yours!
