Special Name Game
I have a 3.5 year old female Chessie that I have used for hunting. I never registered her with the AKC because I had no intentions of running her in a hunt test. Last month she was diagnosed with bone cancer and we had her leg amputated. She has recovered well from the surgery. This past weekend she returned to training. She handled the blinds well and had little issue with the marks on both land and water.
With the above said, I have decided that I want to work towards her senior title so long as she is willing and able to do so. We are going to start off slow and get her Junior title this fall even though she ran senior level work before her amputation.
Her call name is Girl, and I want to incorporate something calling out that she has three legs in her registered name. I have seen some of the names that the name game here on RTF comes up with so I thought I would give you all a try.
Thanks for the help!
Im terrible with names but Good for you and your dog at moving forward, best of luck to you.
I'm not particularly gifted with picking names either, but definitely want to wish you the best and congratulate you for your strength, courage and persistence during such a difficult time. Amazing to have such a positive outlook and way of making the most of everything you and your dog have been given. She looks like she's happy to be with you regardless of her pain.
where is she from?
sire and dam reg. or call names?
very cool your letting her stay working, they all need a job.
edit, working will keep her fit. looks like she likes the supper dish don't she?:cool:
Disagree with Ken, I don't think she looks fat as much as she looks like she has a big ribcage/chest. Nice little tucked up waist. I'm not much good at names, either but how about Triangirl? Triangle has 3 points, you call her girl? And hopefully she'll try her heart out for you!
she may not be fat now. all I'm saying is working will keep her fit. and I can tell by the look on her face she likes to snack.

Its perfect in its form.
"Rocksteady 3 Point Stance" Call name Girl.
She's beautifull,,, so is you!
Thanks for the suggestions and the support! Girl has come a long way in a short amount of time. She is only 4 weeks post op. She ran her first mark just as fast on three legs than she did on four.
Ken, that picture was just a few days after the operation. With the swelling she left the vet several pounds heavier than when she went in with four legs. I will post some better pics of her.
Her sire is
SIR BUDDY OF SPLASHERS DOWN
WELLERS KENSINGTON SHADOW PRINCESS
Splasher's Tripod Princess , call name "Girl"
I really like Ken's suggestion:
It fits on so many levels.
Sounds like Girl is doing great, glad to hear.
