New Puppy without a name

Hi Guys,
I am sure most of you have heard that I got a new puppy on Saturday afternoon. He is a full bred shitzu and was the runt on the batch and is 3 months old and weights about 5 lbs. right now. The dad weighed 8 lbs. and the mom was 7lbs. So he isn't going to get very big.

I had a shitzu once before about 6 or 7 years ago but she had hurt her hip by jumping off our bed and I took her to the vet and they gave her some medication and it killed her. Of course they say it wasn't the meds. That she must of ate something , somewhere. My husband hasn't wanted another dog but, I let him know its time we get one to enjoy while Hanna is little also.

I am doing a blog contest because he needs a name. Here are some of the ones we have picked out and I would like to know what your thoughts are and if any of you have a name you can throw out there to help us name him.. Please leave it in your comment.
1. Oreo
2. Ziggy
3. Snookie
4. Chasper
5. Scooter
6. Lil' Bit

I was thinking last night that when I was younger I had a dog that was so little and everytime someone came over to see her I would say, doesn't she look bigger ? They would reply well maybe a Lil' bit .. So hence became her name. So when this hit me last night I thought OMG he could have a name that matched my store and my blog, how perfect. But, my husband and other family members are saying it sounds like a girls name, so I should keep thinking up names. I wanted to play with him for a few days to see what his personality was like before naming him. Saturday morning the name Ziggy was in the running. Saturday afternoon Snookie was in the running, Sunday Scooter is the one. If you have any cute boy names for a small, but a little stocky looking, fluffy white and black dog then put them down for me in your comment.

Even if your name isn't chosen you have a chance to win. We always have Hanna put all the names in a hat and draw one out. So, have fun thinking up names and keep coming back and writing them on here for me. We hope you think he is as cute as we do.

Here is some pictures of him and Hanna. Oh shoot I forgot to take a picture of the prize. As soon as everyones up and I can turn on lights around here I will take some and get it on here. For now I guess it'll have to be a surprise. LOL

    I had to crack up when I read your name choice. My husbands nickname is Scooter! So I choose "Scooter". Your new puppy is absolutely adorable. Hannah must be so excited.

  5. Thanks girls. I have been cleaning and painting today and taking the dog outside every 20 minutes to pee. Oh the joys of a baby around again. yikes

  6. thank your for sharing your little sweetheart with us!! we have a shitzu named Chang. He was 10 years old on November 15. Chang is a wonderful companion! I like his name and I think the meaning of his name is really fitting! so my vote is for the name Chang!

    ch(a)-ng\ is of Chinese origin, and its meaning is "smooth, free, unhindered".
