Hey Judy, so how many of the seven are still living? All seven of them? How about a group picture. :)

No, only four are left!! Allison has been after me to get a picture and I finally got the three older but have no clue how to get the pictures on here. My husband picked up the puppy at the airport on Tuesday and he is a cutie patootie!!! Very sweet little boy! I wish all seven were still with us. These animals are truly amazing dogs.

Jay silver-heels is the great nephew of my Hawk. And I guess he is also the great uncle of your Ziva.

When you told us a while back what you named her I had to laugh. That is my favorite tv show that is on. I love Ziva too!!!

Sent our papers in yesterday..I'm sure whe're in the clear on the first choice name:

Nidoba Nesta

Nidoba means "friend"..actually "best friend" in Western Abanaki. I have a great, great, great, grandfather from that tribe. My mom is very pleased that I chose from their language.

Nesta is a nod to Robert Nesta Marley. I am not a Rastafarian but Reggae, Ska and some of its culture has been part of my life for the past 30 years.

My bad, Jay is Hawk's nephew not great nephew.

I can tell you that Ziva is the great grandaughter to Red Ryder and Sierra who are retired. Then grandaughter to Scout and Abbey. Both Scout and Abbey are also retired and with other owners. Jay Silver-heels is brother to my sisters AID Ma ii. Ziva's uncle Ma ii lives in Kingman Arizona. Her step brother Chief ( my grandog) lives here in Monmouth on 7 acres with his sister Kyla ( black lab).

It is fun when you get the family tree and see how far back it goes and the names of the othere dogs. It's like going on the web site ancestory dot com and finding long lost realatives.

It really is cool. I just wish there were photos to go with those names. I should try to put together her family tree. When I get her papers back, will it have her ancestors on it? If yes, do you know how far back it goes?

This is so kewl. I know of a few of Jasper's half-bro/sisters from other litters. And it would be really kewl to stay in touch with his littermate's families! He is from the Echo x Rocky litter born 6-8-10 :D

Also- Lisa, I had no idea you were so close by. I used to live in Monmouth (several years ago) So many of the owners seem to be across the country, it's nice to know there are more of us around here. :)

Oh yeah, and he is Jasper Jay-Feather (as if anyone didn't know.. lolol)

I will look for Hawk's lineage paper and I will tell you how far back it goes. It's fun to see who the parents, grandparents, greatgrandparents, etc... and so on. I love to read the cool names that they all have.

I found an awesome name the other day that I would like to name a female aid. It is Wa-kemma. It means "beautiful one" from the Yakima tribe.

That's a lovely name.

I've been thinking of names for gals, too. Full house, though.

My baby's "Official" name is AYOKA. It's a Cherokee word that means She Brought Hapiness. It seems that Ayoka is to much for some people so it got shortened to Yoki. My name for her (when she's good ) is Yoki Hama. We don't have to get into what I call her when she's bad. (Which isn't very often.) I really like all the names I've read so far. We are some creative, deep thinkers, aint we? These dogs are AWESOME!!!!!

There's a former member that had(has) a dog named Ayoka! He's the father to two of our 'kids'!! In fact, when she 'talked' about him she called him Happy!! My husband is still on the search for a name for the latest male!! Being of Native American heritage, he has always been fascinated with the story of Crazy Horse so I'm sure this will be different too!! We'll wait and see!!

Tolinka means flapping ears of a coyote Two Moon because he has Yellow eyes thus Tolinka Two Moon.
My newest AID's name is Charlie Two Step...My grand daughter (6 years old) told me that was to be his name....so be it! :) It definitely fits.....

Thanks for starting this topic. I am enjoying it. Judy K you go girl! #7.

We'll have to have some puppy play dates when we get ours. Aidog that lurks, I love that picture of the gorgeous dog with the blue eyes in front of the flag. What flag is that?

Gib I love the dragon theme. I think dogs are dragons too.

I bet coyote is popular because these dogs strike me as having a lot of trickster. Hee hee hee.

The year of the Iron Rabbit is drawing to a close and this coming year (Feb 22) will be the year of the Water Dragon. Scott is a Wood Dragon. Water feeds wood so I hope for a long and auspicious pairing. I am a fire horse :0

I hope our pup will be connected to the thunder beings and protective powers. If born under Water Dragon that would seem to be a good connection. With that in mind the name I'm drawn to is Heyoka but if that is not respectful then Dorje (Tibetan - thunder bolt), or Wakan Dog (sacred power dog) or Wakinyan (Lakota - thunder being), depending on what is respectful. Here I will defer to Kim.

Those are all super names. I look forward to meeting your pup--the little thunder being, Heyoka, etc. By any name, he will still smell......sweet. I meant sweet, smell sweet!

Welcome Oocahtah! I like Mooka. I'll take a small "Mooka" Latte with whipped cream....

 

We are currently thinking of girl names. Scott likes "Suki" but 1) it's pronounce "ski" and 2) it isn't really a Japanese name - it means "to love/like" some one. So hopefully another name will strike. We have plenty of time. Unless someone knows a meaningful name that can be shortened to Suki (which seems like a good dog name).

 

Suki Waki? Maybe it will work after all...

Our official name is GK Chesterton.  We call him Chester.  GK Chesterton is a favorite Author of my husband and me.  In one of the kids' favorite books, Bunnicula, there is a cat character (a stupendous character) who, named after GK Chesterton, goes by the name of Chester.

 

In the running were Ares (Greek god of War), MacTerra (Mac for short) (Gaelic for Wolf), Madra Rue (Rue for short) (Gaelic for Fox), or Rosco get this one, elfish for fox.  But there was so much fighting, i just picked and didn't tell anyone until he arrived.  He was so darn cute, no one argued about the name.

We have a 2 year old girl named Ziva and a 10 month old boy named DiNozzo. They are both named after characters on the tv show NCIS. They are our favorite characters on the show. They are strong, intelligent, and sexy. What better names could there be?! :P  Ziva was born on 6-20-2010 and DiNozzo was born on 5-25-2012. Ziva's parents are Jay Silver heels and Shasta. DiNozzo's parents are Feather's Shadow and Red Rider.
