Hello all! :D

Mister Jack and I had a blast at the dog show here in Houston yesterday. We paid a visit to the AKC booth, and inquired about printing a pedigree for Jack. Unfortunately, we have no papers on him! The breeder never sent them to us. We've tried to contact her, but always an answering machine picked up. I'm going to keep trying though. :3

Anyway, they asked if he had a registered name. Of course, he does not. I never really thought about giving him one, but I did some looking around, and asking at the show, and found that I LOVE the really unique names! Lol. I'm thinking of giving Jack one once we locate his papers. Only problem is, I have no idea what his big long registered name should be!

Any ideas?

I think we've finally decided on a name for Jack. :) We found out that Mister Jack LOVES, I do mean loves, Michael Jackson. He always sings when we put his music on, and when his funeral was on, he made a special effort to stay awake during the whole thing. Also, my grandmother thinks that Jack is a transvestite now, since we had him fixed. She frequently calls him Jacqueline. Ha ha. So I thought about it for a couple of days, and tied the two together. His official name, when the papers arrive, will be Mister Michael Jackson's Sequin Glove. :D

Did you have Texas Hold 'em Black Jack on your profile at one time? Or maybe that was someone else. I think that's a cute looong name. After we agreed on Jet's name, my smart ass husband put Jet McLovin' Richardson on his AKC registration. That's his name! How ridiculous is that? He was in trouble when we got the pedigree back...

I've seen several posts here and other places where people have had problems getting their dog's papers. My first corgi came from a backyard breeder and the newest one came from a reputable breeder. Both times I was given the papers when we picked up our dog. On our current dog's papers, the breeder filled out everything but the dog's name for us. We just needed to add the name and send it in. We had to add our personal info as well as the dog's name to the first dog's papers. I wouldn't think of leaving the property without the registration papers in hand.

Thanks everyone! If I went with putting the kennel name in, it would have to incorporate the word Tiffany, because he's from Tiffany Kennels. Jack is show quality, he was just too small in the breeder's opinion to keep, so I got him at a "pet" price. She never told me the parent's registered names, just what she called them. [Claire and Henry.] I guess she thought I'd never really use the names, or even take an intrest in the AKC. I'm trying to think of some thing unique, that stands out. :) Hopefully I'll be able to come up with something!

I have always bought show quality dogs and their breeders always named them before they got to me. A lot of concienous breeders do this so they can make sure that their kennel name is used, and that the new owner doesn't attach a name to one of their dogs that sounds goofy. I knew a girl that was going to name a newly acquired puppy, Snapdragon, but the breeder did not want the word 'snap' in the dog's name, understandable. So I have had, Foresse Camelot and called him Mac, Greyhaven Dark Fire, and called him Piper, Gryphon's Don Quixote and called him Qui, Gryphons Monkey C Monkey Do, he is called Mi(My) Taylor, and my little Cardi is named Cadnoclun's Girl Watcher but he is known by Jaunty. Call names can be included in the registered name but certainly doesn't have to. You may pay a little more (and many times NOT!) from a reputable breeder, but there is never any question about registering the puppy. (Also good breeders have had both of the puppy's parents health tested, and the puppy buyer will get copies of the test results). lots of times new purebred puppy buyers don't realize how important finding a breeder is, the purpose of breeding purebred dogs is to better the breed, nothing more, and definitely nothing less! Good luck, names are fun!

Our breeder also required the same as Beth but I think it went well with the name we picked out. Seeings how we live in New Mexico we ended up with "WendtWorths Sassy Samantha Southwestern Senorita" :) Good luck on picking a name. Keep us informed I enjoy seeing all the long ole' registered names too.

Our dog's breeder required we use her kennel name in his registered name. Our dog is named Jack too! He has three names; his registered name is (kennel name) Lucky Sevens, because we picked him up on 07/07/07. His house name is Jackpot (see the connection?) and we call him Jack most of the time.
