A few months ago we decided that it was time to add a fresh face to the line-up here at Geddesburg and find Sherman a playmate. After some talking and weighing the pros and cons, we decided to get another Greater Swiss Mountain Dog.
Sherman's new friend was born on July 26 and we went for our first visit last weekend. These photos are from that trip. She was six weeks old in the photos. This little sweetie will be coming to live with us the first weekend in October and we still haven't decided what we are going to name her.
We've thrown several names around - Peabody, Shiloh, Savannah, Marsha, and Scarlet. We are searching for the perfect name for Sherman's new companion, but we aren't sure if we've found it yet.
All of these names (except Marsha) have a connection to the name "Sherman" in one way or another. The name Marsha is a reference to the Brady Bunch (i.e. Sherman will think "Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!" when the puppy gets too much attention).
This is your chance to help and enter your choice of a name in a chance to win a prize. To enter leave a comment on this post and suggest the name you think would be perfect for our new puppy. Please do not use the names listed above, come up with your own suggestion. I can't promise that we will actually use any of the suggestions - so to determine the winner I'll put all entries into a hat and let Brad draw. However, if we do decide to use on of the names suggested - that person will win automatically.
The winner will receive a skein of handspun sock yarn and a small project bag; both made by me. The contest will be open for entries until Wednesday, October 1, 2008. We are going to pick up the puppy that weekend and I will post the winners after we pick her up.
