I don't post as often as I would like, and for those of you waiting on me to view your precious puppies, well...have mercy on me.
If you know me...you know I LOVE the color purple. I have loved this color for as long as I can remember...certainly before it was cool. Purple makes me happy, so I have a lot of it! You know what else? Rushell of Snowypaw Golden Retrievers loves purple too! So, when Rushell suggested we call Chloe's first ever litter the Purple Litter, who was I to argue?
Without over complicating the facts, Rushell needs a litter name to register the puppies. First there is a litter name, and then all the pups get a related name for registration purposes only...most folks change the names once the pups become members of their families. For example, Chloe was from the "Charm" litter and her registration name was Third Times a Charm, but once she became a member of my family, we named her Chloe, Chloebutt, Butt Butt, etc etc...her name is Chloe to us.
If you are a regular reader you already know that Chloe was named after my sister...and you may remember that my sister collected Kaleidoscopes. I had asked Rushell if she would consider naming Chloe's litter the Kaleidoscope litter, and then name all the pups with color names, and she loved the idea...but we both agreed that since Chloe's litter had only three pups the Kaleidoscope name would need to wait...and that's how Chloe's litter became the Purple Litter. Our one boy is Royal (Purple) and his new family name is Jaxson. Our two girls are Amethyst and Violet. Amethyst has a new family with a four year old boy all her own to play with...who has already named her Beckett, and Violet is the newest guardian of the Snowypaw family and her guardian family has decided to keep that name and will call her Violet.
I planned to save the Kaleidoscope Litter name for the future.
Then, the future happened.
Chloe became the caregiver to Edy's litter.
We haven't named them yet, but we have 4 girls and 3 boys. I have a list, but if you have a great color name you wish to suggest, please leave your comments below...I would love to hear them! Edi's pups are 4 weeks old in this photo.
The remaining photos were taken over the past three weeks, ending with the most recent.
