PUPPY NAMING GIVE-AWAY: The 4-Month Diet Cookbook!

So… Soon, before we even know it, Pup will be here. Lindsay, our Pup Breeder, wishes to know what we wish to name this dawg. We have no clue.

BUT…we have a blog. We have clever, creative, and brilliant readers.

Let us call upon them.

My latest book, How I Lost 30 Pounds in Four Months, is about ready for publication. It soon will be available on Amazon.

As a special gift to FaM readers ( :-) ), I propose to give away one (1) advance copy, in the form of a PDF, to the person who comes up with the cutest, most appealing, or most appropriate name for this tiny li’l corgi:

Saydees Pups 6 Weeks 017

By “cutest, most appealing, or most appropriate,” we mean “the one I subjectively like the most.” :-)

No guarantees that this will be THE name that sticks with the pooch for life, since I usually end up naming a pet after I’ve come to know it. But we do need something to start with.

The full title (speaking of names) of the diet/recipe book is How I Lost 30 Pounds in Four Months…Without Hardly Trying: Diet Advice and 125 Killer Recipes from Funny about Money. Not all the recipes are dietetic — those that shouldn’t add too much fat to the frame are tagged with stars. But all are pretty darned good to eat.

30 poundsThe winner will get page proofs for How I Lost 30 Pounds, in PDF format, complete with four chapters of detailed diet advice (largely unscientific) and about 125 recipes, some but not all of which have appeared at Funny about Money.

To participate, submit a comment to this post with your suggested name for this magnificent little corgi pup.

The contest will be open for ten days, starting today: Thursday, February 27, 2014.

Hmmmm, she looks like a Gidget to me. :)

Tamara February 27, 2014 at 2:43 pm

I always give dogs human names: charlie, toby, teddy, leah, etc… , but this little girl looks like Peaches to me. Or Lucy.

Sandra J February 27, 2014 at 3:16 pm

How about: Frisbee, Zip, or Dash? I’m thinking she is going to be a wild woman!

C Martin February 27, 2014 at 6:37 pm

How about Dame Margaret Corey, lady in waiting to the Queen of the Universe?

Mary February 27, 2014 at 6:51 pm

The husband suggests Pickle, but I suggest Sadie.

Marissa@Thirtysixmonths February 27, 2014 at 8:15 pm

Thus this diet tip really work? lol

Funny about Money February 27, 2014 at 8:17 pm

Not exactly a “tip.” There are four chapters on why & how I concocted the diet and how it worked.

Deedee February 27, 2014 at 8:56 pm

Very interested in reading your book. When I saw the picture I thought “Poppy.” No idea why. But she is so sweet!

karla February 28, 2014 at 8:25 am

How about Georgie…as in Georgie Corgi. But by the looks of the pic, she also looks like a “Georgeous.”

Lori February 28, 2014 at 10:26 am

With those bright, shiny, appealing eyes, she definitely looks like a Buttons!

Mrs. Wheat February 28, 2014 at 11:08 am

How about Nudge? Not sure why, it just came to mind.

Best Bun February 28, 2014 at 12:57 pm

How about naming this little cutie in honor of the most famous corgi owner of all-Queen Elizabeth? You can tell people Her Royal Highness lives at your house.

Best wishes from Best Bun

Elissa @ 20s Finances February 28, 2014 at 1:56 pm

Popcorn, Chloe, Duffy or Jelly Bean! Such a cutie.

The Asian Pear February 28, 2014 at 5:22 pm

She looks like a Gracie or a Maddie to me. :D

Juli Thompson February 28, 2014 at 7:37 pm

What are her parents’ names?

funny March 7, 2014 at 10:06 am

Saydee and Vergil.

Jane T. March 1, 2014 at 7:00 pm

I still like Priscilla…

Barb March 2, 2014 at 5:29 am

Delilah just came to me.

Marissa@Financetriggers March 2, 2014 at 6:11 am

Great post. I love your diet cookbook.

Laurie B March 3, 2014 at 6:30 am

How about Maggie?

Linda March 6, 2014 at 12:45 pm

I know this is beyond your deadline, but I just had to put in my suggestion: Wilma, or the longer version Wilhelmina. I don’t know why, but when I looked at her photo it just popped into my head.

funny March 6, 2014 at 4:22 pm

Deadline? It is?

By my English-major math (which admittedly is negligible), the deadline is PUPPY PICKUP DAY, next Sunday.

heeeee! She does have a certain Nordic look, doesn’t she? You know, some think the corgi is descended from or related to the Swedish valhund. Explains a lot, doesn’t it?

jestjack March 7, 2014 at 10:28 am

“Serendipity’s Chance”….”Chance” for short. To honor how so many things in life happen via serendipity or mere chance. Plus it sounds cool…..LOL. Hope the new addition gets along with the “Queen”.

funny March 7, 2014 at 10:40 am

I surely hope she does! One never knows, with dogs, they being almost as unpredictable as humans. But I figure if Anna the GerShep, who desired nothing more than to rid the earth of other dogs, could get along with Walt the Greyhound, this will probably work out.

Iloru March 7, 2014 at 10:41 am

She looks like a little Lulu to me. :) Lovely little Lulu the corgi!

Evan March 7, 2014 at 11:50 am

Gizmo!

Susan March 7, 2014 at 12:59 pm

Mabli – means loveable in Welsh

Jone March 7, 2014 at 2:16 pm

Holy Golightly because white gloves or socks it wears.

Kathleen March 7, 2014 at 2:34 pm

Corky (or Corki) the Corgi. Or Celeste. Lol.

casey March 7, 2014 at 2:45 pm

Corky or Corki, the Corgi (or Celeste or Cecilia — Cece for short).

Linda March 7, 2014 at 5:49 pm

Bug….because no matter what kind of fancy name you give her she will be into everything and be silly and be naughty and just plain be a cute as a button Bug. BTW…she is just adorable!

Linda March 7, 2014 at 6:04 pm

Sassie, goes with Cassie.

Mrs PoP @ Planting Our Pennies March 7, 2014 at 6:46 pm

I second the vote for Princess Poppy, but also like Birdie or Bridie.

Jean March 7, 2014 at 7:25 pm

Coquette – because she looks like a flirt

Kathy March 7, 2014 at 7:46 pm

How about Stubby?

Samantha de Jager March 7, 2014 at 10:48 pm

I think she looks like a Pumpkin or Bonnie

Samantha de Jager March 7, 2014 at 10:50 pm

I think Bonnie or Pumpkin would be good for her.

Karen Hickey March 9, 2014 at 11:00 pm

So adorable! How about Peanut or Spark or Zippy? Although not their names, I call my little girls, Gidget and Chami, my little “Peanuts” of the time because their little bodies remind me of the shape of a peanut. Don’t ask me why, they just do…I probably should have named one of them Peanut
