Um, Are You Peeps Busy?

Because, if you’re not, we have 10 puppehs who NEED 10 NAMES! Mama is a little bit overwhelmed. We must hasten to her assistance!

We are detecting some twin action naming possibilities here:

Definitely a middle child here:

Roberta S.’s foster Mama beagle had emergency c-section (note pink bandage of honor) with TEN pups. All are doing well but their names are still to be determined!


  1. kibblenibble says:

  23. Mary (the first) says:

    Exactly what I had except for “Noel”.. I was thinking maybe “Snoopy” just to break it up a bit.

  24. Mary (the first) says:

    Dang it posted in the wrong space because I didn’t read down far enough and was going to endorse “Olive” the other reindeer! Of course!

  25. Nom, Nom-nom, Nommers, Nomas, Nomma Cass, Nombastic, Nommette, Nommamamma, Nommina, and Jelly.

  35. This was going to be my suggestion as well!

  36. dandelionwineinthesummertime says:

    Ha ha someone has recently watched the Hobbit ;)

  37. Thorin Oakenshield is such a big name for such tiny puppies!

  38. Oh, poor mama! She looks exhausted! :c

    As for names, I agree; we need details on genders.

  39. Hawkeye, BJ, Frank, Hotlips, Colonel Potter, Klinger, Radar, Henry, Charles, and Trapper John.

  40. Andi in NC says:

  45. Kiwi, Mango, Mojo, Pumpkin, Tippy, Doodles, Noodles, Sweetie, BonBon…kisses to all babies and extra trets and luvs for Mama…

  46. Mary (the first) says:

    So, you medical people, help me out here on the anatomy, wouldn’t a c-section on a doglet kind of be in the way of the “meelk bar” as they call it? Just curious… she does seem to be doing ok ..

  47. Kari Callin says:

    It’s midline, between the rows of teats. So not too bad, just a little more vascular than if she wasn’t lactating. :D

  48. Mary (the first) says:

    Thanks, I was more kind of wondering about the puppehs bothering stitches and so on. Apparently it’s all OK, those are happy, plump lookin’ puppers!

  49. phred's mom says:

    The nursing must be, to use the medical
    euphemism, “a little uncomfortable”. Give
    Mama lots of TLC, she needs it!

    Big kisses and lots of treats to Mom. Good work, girl!

  51. That is quite the navity story.

  66. We always called it Monkey or Pickle in the Middle.

  67. phred's mom says:

    yep, monkey in the middle it is.
    Used to play this with our cat.

  68. Raspberry, Apricot, Guava, Plum, Apple, Kiwi, Limey, Peaches, Mango, Blueberry

  69. nice :)

  70. That’s a lot o’ puppehs!

  71. rescue gal says:

    Why don’t people spay and neuter their pets? *sigh*

  72. No worries, rescue gal! She is spayed, now. I am her foster mom. They spayed her when they did the c-section. Her owners surrendered her to a local shelter when they found that she was pregnant. She is in good hands now, and all of her little pups will be spayed/neutered before going to their fur-ever homes. :-)

  73. YAY Roberta S, Mama Dawg and ALL HER poopies !!!

  74. Rotten previous owners, dumping a girl like that when she’s most vulnerable. Like a guy leaving his pregnant wife/girlfriend out in the cold. I’m glad you came to the rescue. Those pups are adorable and Mom looks tired but proud.

  75. How do you know it isn’t a foster/rescue situation?

  76. Msdove-thejrtlady says:

    Or that those babies are going to go only to forever homes. And if that home is not forever mamas hoomins will take tha baby back to find a new forever home. Mama does not seem to stuck in a cramped cage so I bet her mom and dad are very loving and responsible doggie owners

  77. In fact, the caption now specifies that this is the sender-inner’s FOSTER dog.

  78. Big Christmas wish for loving forever homes for all the puppies and that their new owners spay/neuter each one when the time comes…

  79. Stressfactor says:

    Also, because some people do use their Beagles for hunting or dog showing and so it makes sense to breed them to try to get more good hunting dogs or show dogs.

    The only problem comes when people do irresponsible, uncareful breeding in which they breed the dogs too often and/or are not selective of the other dogs they breed them to.

  80. rescue gal says:

    No- Stressfactor, that is FAR from only time there is a problem.

  81. hmmmm. ’tis the season to be jolly, rescue gal, so let’s have a cup ‘o cheer and cheer on the wonderful people who are loving this brave momma.

  82. Because otherwise there would be no adorable puppeh and kitteh pics to post on Cute Overload.

  83. Sputnik, Lola, Maribel, Ringo, Sam, Stinky, Rosie, Archie, Betty, Cleo

  84. Bobby, Cobby, Dobby, Fobby, Hobby, Jobby, Lobby, Mobby, Nobby & Pobby!
    You won’t have confused pups at all, they all come running when you yell Obby!

  85. Puppy, puppy, other puppy, another puppy, and…

    …Oh who am I kidding? I’d be too busy making happy noises to call any of them by name!

  86. MOM is a beautiful overachiever !!! :)

  87. Names? OK!!! Following are four versions of a system.

    One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, Nine, Ten.
    Un, Deux, Trois, Quatre, Cinq, Six, Sept, Huit, Neuf, Dix ….or
    Ichi, Ni, San, Shii, Go, Rohu….or
    Odin, Tva, Trii, Chetiri…

  88. Magilla's Mom says:

    In this spirit, Magilla Glub Glub would like to suggest:
    Rimwe, Kabiri, Gatatu, Kane, Gatanu, Gatandatu, Karindwi, Umunane, Icyenda, Icumi

  89. YAY MGG!!!

  90. my tongue just got all twisted, just like Magilla Glub Glub’s

  91. Poor mummy beagle! I wonder if her hoomins are helping with supplementary feeding. Tha’s a whole lot of babies. Poor, poor mummy!

  92. Vanessa, rest easy, the Mama Beagle is my foster and she is a trooper, she is dining on Ziwi Peak and other high calorie, highly nutritious foods. So far, her babies have not been interested in any supplemental feeding, she’s doing such a great job. But we’re ready to pitch in if necessary. Who knew such a petite little gal could manage all of these babies? What a great Mama! She’s going to spend the rest of her life being treated like the queen that she is.

  93. I luffs her and all them pupsters and you! Poor hoomin foster mummy too!

  94. Whatever you do, one of them has to be named Bubba.

  95. (The Original) Mel says:

    Well, I have to go with ye olde favorite twin names: Oranjello and Lemonjello.

  96. Twinkle, Kareena, Kajol, Bindu, Rani, Raja, Zayed, Kunal, Raj, Johnny.

  98. like these a LOT

  99. Especially the last one! (I was never much of a Partridge Family fan. And Marsha and Cindy bugged me.)

  100. Well, Marsha, Marsha, Marsha takes up three pup names. Brilliant.

  101. YAY for this

  102. dandelionwineinthesummertime says:

    Oh goodness! What a little trooper she is! I hope she gets some rest soon.

    Some ideas for names: Falkor, Atreyu, River, Pizza, Pie Man, Cupcake Kid, Cheeseburger, Joe, Hazel, Ruby. <3

  103. 6 names for boys: Loki, Bosco, Lego, Mr. Right, Oscar, Muffin,
    6 Names for young ladys: Ms. Marple, Belanna, Whisper, Frizbee, Chica, Eo.
    Ok, some of them you can use for both boys and girls …

  104. pupfanatic says:

    Just 10 leetle cow print beagle puplets…nuthin to see here. Move along. (I’s just happens to be wearin’ a 10 pocket raincoat. It’s a coincidence, I swear!!)

  105. pupfanatic says:

    And I’m just holding a Mama beagle sized basket w/ me…SO???!!!

  106. *sighs, taps foot, shakes head* tsk! *slides red wagon behind the door*

  107. No no no noooo noooh human first names!! Why people do that for pets, I will never understand!

  108. Lucy's Mommeh says:

    All our current kitties have Hooman names. There’s Lucy (She was found under what I thought was a pumpkin plant) Tabitha-because my husband said she looked like a former in law who wore too much makeup) and Molly-a thrice-owned previously used model who came with the name Millie. She was Olive in her first home.

  109. Every single dog I or my family has ever had was given a human name (Katie, Teddy, Katie, Teddy, Sam, Barney, Charlie, Paulie, Gracie, Lily, Ozzy and Zack). I actually can’t imagine NOT giving a dog a human name. :)

  110. I even give my chickens human names, and my parakeet’s name is Allen haha :D

  111. I am with you, Rachael. All my pets have hoomin first AND middle names. It’s only proper. (Cats – Jackson Miles, Maisey Alice, Hamsters – Amelia Jane, Gabrielle [Gabby] Catherine, Hermit crab – Sheldon Ishmael). :-D

  112. Sheldon Ishmael has got to be the awesomest, most excellent pet name EVER for a crab!!!

  113. I had one named Mr. J. P. Crinklebine :-)

  114. My three rats are Aaron, Derek, and Spencer, for three of the characters on one of my favorite TV shows, “Criminal Minds” .
    Their colors match the appearances of the characters – Aaron is white with a jet black head, Derek is brown all over, and Spencer is white with a light brown head. Spencer is also the youngest.
    Strangely, they also turned out to have personalities that match their ‘characters’ – Aaron is the boss, Derek is the most laid-back, and Spencer is the smartest, and the one who gets into trouble the most….

  115. Alice and Riley — our bunz. Often, rescues come to us with names already given. Not sure I cotton to those who change their names. Kinda confusing for the critters? But then, no more so, perhaps, than the dozens of nicknames we give them ;-)

  116. All my pets have a proper people name and a fluffymuffins pet name.

  117. Why wouldn’t they? It’s all just various sounds put together… human names in one language may mean nothing in another. My cats are named Cletus, Matisse, Molly, Sparky, Elaine, Patches, Daisy, Alex, Libby, and Samantha. All good names! :)

  118. hollys_mum says:

    I totally agree with the no human names. My friend had a cat called Julie. It’s so wrong!

  119. Jude, When I was a kid my mother named a cock a poo “FOO FOO” because it sounded “french” (remember the dog was 1/2 poodle) I apologized to the dog & promised I would NEVER give an animal an “animal” name again. That’s why I now have a : Knucklehead, Harley (what can I say my hubby likes motorcycles), Stoney (Stoneware), Tenmoku ( a type of ceramic glaze because she’s black with a brown under coat like the glaze is black where thick & red- brown where it’s thin) Raku (A method of firing for ceramic objects that leaves unglazed clay jet black like she is) and Mommacita.

  120. Boop, Bam, Pow, Woosh, Beep, Whisper, Crash, Sigh, Roar, Hum, Clonk and Rustle

  121. Ooooh I vote for these!

  122. Malyndia Arechiga says:

    Itsy and Bitsy, Teeny and Weeny, Ricky and Lucy, George and Gracie, Joshua and Moses, Smokey and the Bandit; Pinky; Pooh Bear and Piglet; Misty, Melody, Lincoln, Chevy. Dodge, Freddi, Franky, Phoebe and Chloe…

  123. Here’s another idea; Larry, Darryl and My Other Brother Darryl for three of ’em!!

  128. Sol, Mercury, Venus, Rocky (aka third rock from the sun), Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uri (can’t do the whole name to a puppy, sorry), Neptune, Pluto (for the runt of the litter, of course)

  129. “Pink bandage of honor” = WIN!

  130. Titan, Rhea, Dione, Pandora, Pheobe, Janus, Calypso, Atlas, Pan, Helene

  131. I would pop them all in mah mouf like I do with the pretzel nuggets from Aunt Annies.

  148. What about;

    Boys: Sam, Fred, Nobby, Carrot

    Girls: Esme, Magrat, Gytha, Agnes, Tiffany, Amber and Letitia (or Eskarina)

  149. ilikechocolatemilk says:

    Good thing you didn’t pick VETinari!

As for girls: Ruth, Naomi, Esther, Vashti, Zipporah, Judith, Deborah, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, and Leah. What’s the mama dog’s name? I hope she was spayed after the birth; the poor sweetie shouldn’t have to go through that again.

  154. Mama Beagle’s name has been ‘officially’ determined by the shelter Board of Directors as Mama Cassie. She will NOT be going through this again, as she was spayed during the C-Section. The vet reported that she sighed a very deep AMEN! after coming out from under anesthesia. :-)

  156. Tana Siemaszko says:

    Ok so I have a thing for the great people of the sciences.

  162. I do rather like the scientist meme. Are you aware that Einstein had a girlfriend/ wife in Austria who was — in very unconventional situation a female physicist???
    Her name was Mileva. See the below:

  163. Oin, Gloin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Kili, Fili, Dori, Nori and Ori :)

  172. Thank YOU, Roberta S!!

  173. all these names and no one suggested these:
    bella, edward, jacob, renesmee, carlisle, esme, emmett, rosalie, jasper, alice.
    mama’s name can (should) be stephenie meyer.
