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!
