Puppy Name Poll Results

I have had so much fun reading the comments that have come through on this poll.

Last week I mentioned on Facebook I was going to name the puppy Beezus (after the older sister in the Ramona stories by Beverly Cleary).  We decided against that name due to the concerns I may shriek  "Jeeeezus Beeeezus" on the trial field at some point.  I wonder, would I be disqualified for that? 

As you obviously ascertained I settled on the name Bea.  Not only because Dianne refused to put Beezus on her registration papers - but it was my first choice.  I wanted to wait until I met the little Bea to make up my mind between Bliss or Bea.   

She is most definitely NOT a "Bliss".  After the past two days, I have to say Bea fits her the best. She is a determined, confident little puppy who has already figured out how to escape her x-pen. 

The nickname possibilities are extensive.  Beaster, Beadle Weedle, Beazlebub, Beatle Bug, Bean, Beazer Weezer, Beazus, Beatrix,  to name a few.

Thank you to all of you for your suggestions!

Depending on how fast she is, another nickname for Bea could be BB (as in BB gun!).
Oh, and please don't skimp on the puppy photos!

I agree - we want LOTS of puppy pics! Seeing the few you posted just makes me wish I had a new puppy in our house! Bea is to-die-for cute and the name suits her well :)

You can add Bea-dazzle to you list of nicknames.
Bring on the puppy pictures Camera Face!
We gotta live vicariously... not every one can have another puppy. My husband would leave home.

Oh, that was me, with the J-- B--! :)

I love the confidence and boldness in these puppies!
