Adorable! Go Finnie! If I get a male puppy Im Naming him Finn
I was going to name him Vinnie originally but the breeder took offence to me calling him that...she said 'you know the #1 Sheltie in Canada is named Vinnie' in other words I shouldn't use it. Then someone in the local Sheltie group also called their pup Finnie and that irked me (but I'm ok with you calling your boy Finn). This lady we see each other at shows and meetings and I may yet do conformation when he's older so it could cause confusion.
I think I should just start calling him Vinnie lol, I much prefer that name and it's not like I have to change his CKC name (that's The Finishing Touch), it's just his call name.
It's funny, but until I named him Finnie I didn't realize how popular a dog name it is! Lots of Shelties named Finnie!
I asked my husband if he like Finnie, he came up with Finn, we agreed on that. Then I felt guilty because you have a Finnie, lol! Imitation is the highest form of flattery you know!
Your so right!
Plus it can be so hard to pick a name you shouldn't avoid a name just because someone else named their dog that. That's why I shoulda stuck with Vinnie...I liked it and thats all that mattered!
I like Finnie!
Since we live on Cape Cod, Sandstorm is a good, fitting name. And now that we have an abundance of sharks, Finn is s good name too! I would still like a Minnie
I like Finnie too but had wanted to name him Vinnie...was my first choice. But Finnie is a good second choice lol.
