Name the New Rock N Roll GeoDog Cointest!

Many of you may remember one of my entries in the thread What would you spend your money on if geocoins didn't exist? See my post #360. I didn’t win a coin but I think that I really was the big winner.

 

After that post I started looking for a springer both at www.springerrescue.org and www.petfinder.com. I had applications approved and knew there was a dog out there just waiting for me. On Thursday I saw a dog on petfinder. It must have been an omen as that was my birthday. I went to the adoption day at the shelter yesterday and sat down on the floor. He crawled in my lap, licked my face and it was all over!! He appears to be a purebred English Springer Spaniel and was found running loose with a purebred German Shorthair Pointer. He is a neutered male and the vet estimated his age at about 2. No one claimed him so now he is mine all mine!!! :laughing: I am SO excited!!!

What is this cointest for? Well I want you to help me name him! Most of my dogs have been named after classic rock and roll songs or LPs. (To me classic means late 50s, 60s and 70s.)

For example here are the names of some of my dogs:

 

My Sweet “Lady”---John Denver

Sgt “Pepper”---Beatles

“Abbey” Road---Beatles

“Rocky” Raccoon---Beatles

Good Golly Miss "Molly"---Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels

 

There are always rules so here they are

 

1. List the song with the call name in parentheses and after that who it was performed by. If you want to name him after a band member or performer you can list that too

2. If you want to list some of the lyrics so I can sing to him as I decide if the name fits that is great too but not required. In fact the neighbors may not like my singing and the dog could howl!!!

3. Limit yourself to one post per hour. Only 3 name suggestions per post. There will be a lot of time to enter and this will make it easier for me to evaluate the names.

4. As usual no editing of posts.

5. No whining—that is only for the dog to do.

6. The cointest will end later in the week—I will post later exactly when as I need to play with him for a bit to see which name really fits him. This part of the research will be difficult! LOL :grin:

7. If I see something in his personality that I think may help you name him I will post that.

8. If I have left something out then I reserve the right to add more rules. :grin:

 

What will you win? I am a big believer in rescuing animals that have been discarded, abandoned or lost rather than supporting puppy mills or the like. For this reason I would like to award the Humane Society of York County coin to the person who selects the name I choose for this dog. This will be the one from my collection as I have already traded my extra. I think though by passing it on may spread the word. Right at this time I don’t have my hands on it so if I don’t find it by the end of the cointest I will send out something else from my collection. The second winner will get the MWGB Hyde coin from my traders. I chose this coin because Hyde is a cute dog with long floopy ears and the Bash was a great event. The second coin will be determined by random number generator. If by chance I pick a name that no one has suggested then both coins will be awarded by random number.

 

Ok are you ready? These are the type of suggestions I am looking for

 

1. “Maggie” Mae—Rod Stewart (Nope he a guy dog)

2. “Maxwell’s” Silver Hammer—Beatles (Great name for a blue merle dog but he is liver and white)

3. “George” Harrison---Beatles (yep he was my favorite Beatle but I don’t really see this dog as a George)

 

To get you in the right frame of mind to think of names here’s a great song by the Doors

 

Hello, I love you

Wont you tell me your name?

 

He holds his head so high

Like a statue in the sky

His fur is soft and his legs are long

When he moves my brain screams out this song

 

Hello, I love you

Wont you tell me your name…….

 

Hello I love you

Wont you tell me your name……..

 

 

Also watch for my "Help Rescue This Dog Coin Sale" coming soon!!!!!!!

 

Edit to add This cointest will end Tuesday April 22 at midnight EST.

hei this is a great idea.

i also have a dog from greece. i've heard that there are a lot of roaming dogs which will be killed if

there's no one who would like to adopt them...:grin:

so we decided to take one of them and not one from an animal shelter here in germany.

 

ok, my first idea

 

"kurt" cobain (nirvana)

ok it's not the 50's, 60's, 70's classics, but i wanted to name it here!

 

maybe this one "elvis" presley - hound dog (lol)

 

johnny cash - jackson

 

thanks for this cointest!!!

Ooh... we just went through a naming thing - We ended up naming our pup "Kwiddit" :grin:

 

And, another coincidence - Maxwell's Silver Hammer - a recent favorite song of ours - theres a hilarious flash animation video online.

 

Will kick around puppers names - we have a few of our own:

 

Cinema's DeLovely "Ella" (Cole Porter song, Ella Fitzgerald did a version of it)

Cinema's Menage A Paw (Her Bday is 7-7-07 threes. Well.. you get the connection.) Her call name is "Ruby" simply because it sounded cute.

 

Now the new one Cinema's To Be Determined. (We wrote it down, and laughed so much we might just keep this as her registered name.) That would be Kwiddit - well... she's heard "KWIDDIT" so much, she thinks its her name. LOL

 

Will post soon!

:laughing::grin::grin:

 

Delilah lyrics

 

Delilah, Delilah

Oh my, oh my, oh my - you're irresistible

 

You make me smile when I'm just about to cry

You bring me hope, you make me laugh - you like it

You get away with murder, so innocent

But when you throw a moody you're all claws and you bite -

That's alright

Delilah, Delilah

Oh my, oh my, oh my - you're unpredictable

 

You make me so very happy

When you cuddle up and go to sleep beside me

And then you make me slightly mad

When you pee all over my Chippendale Suite

 

Delilah, Delilah

Hey - Hey - Hey

 

You take over my house and home

You even try to answer my telephone

Delilah, you're the apple of my eyes

Meeow, Meeow, Meeow

Delilah - I love you

 

Oh you make me so very happy - you give me kisses

And I go out of my mind ooh

 

Meeow, Meeow, Meeow, Meeow

You're irresistible - I love you Delilah

Delilah - I love you

 

You make me very happy

 

Oooh - I love your kisses

Oooh - I love your kisses

Jumping "Jack" Flash--Rolling Stones.

 

As since he's a dog, I'm sure you'll have plenty of opportunities to say, "He's a gas, gas, gas." :grin:

 

Tell me about it! New food and new home........

 

 

My boyfriend's name is Tom so I won't be naming the dog "Tommy" by the Who :laughing:

"Me and Bobby McGee"

written by Kris Kristofferson, and performed by many, but most famously Janis Joplin!

 

Me and Bobby Magee

 

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waitin’ for a train

I feeling nearly faded as my jeans.

Bobby thumbed a diesel down, just before it rained,

Rode us all the way to New Orleans.

 

I pulled my harpoon, out my dirty red bandana

I was playing soft while Bobby sang the blues.

Windshield wipers slapping time I was holding Bobby’s hand in mine

We sang every song that driver knew.

 

Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose

And nothing ain't worth nothing honey if it ain't free

But if feeling good was easy Lord, when he sang the blues

Then feeling good was good enough for me.

Good enough for me and my Bobby Magee.

Looking Your Big Brown Eyes Lyrics from bob marley

 

I've been watching you

alalalalalong alalalalalonglongleelonglonglong

Come on

alalalalalong alalalalalonglongleelonglonglong

 

Standing across the room I saw you smile

Said I wanna talk to you for a little while

But before I make my move

My emotions start running wild

My tongue gets tied

And thats no lie

Im looking in your eyes

Im looking in your big brown eyes

(ooh yeah and Ive got this to say to you heeey)

 

Girl I want to make you sweat

Sweat till you cant sweat no more

And if you cry out,

Im gonna push it some mo-o-ore

Girl I want to make you sweat

Sweat till you cant sweat no more

And if you cry out,

Im gonna push it, push it push it some more

alalalalalong alalalalalonglongleelonglonglong

(come on)

alalalalalong alalalalalonglongleelonglonglong

 

So I say to myself if she loves me or not

But the dread don know that love is here together

I put a little bit of this and a little bit of that

the lyrics goes on the attack

my tongue gets tied

and thats no lie

Im looking in your eyes

Im looking in your big brown eyes (ooh girl Ive got to say to you)

Hey !

 

Girl I want to make you sweat

Sweat till you cant sweat no more

And if you cry out,

Im gonna push it some mo-o-ore

Girl I want to make you sweat

Sweat till you cant sweat no more

And if you cry out,

Im gonna push it, push it push it some more

alalalalalong alalalalalonglongleelonglonglong

(ooh yeah)

alalalalalong alalalalalonglongleelonglonglong

Stormy lyrics from Santana

 

STORMY You are the sunshine, baby, whenever you smile

But I call you Stormy today

All of a sudden that ol' rain is fallin' down

And my world is cloudy and gray

You've gone away

 

Old Stormy Stormy

Old Stormy Stormy

Old Stormy Stormy

Old Stormy Stormy

 

Yesterday's love was alive, the warm summer breeze

But like the weather you changed

Now things are dreary, baby, windy and cold

And I stand alone in the rain

Callin' out your name

 

Stormy Stormy

Stormy Stormy

Come back to me Stormy

Stormy Stormy

 

Bring back that sunny day

 

GUITAR SOLO

 

Yesterday's love was alive, the warm summer breeze

But like the weather you changed

Now things are dreary, baby, windy and cold

And I stand alone in the rain

Callin' out your name

 

Whoa! Stormy

 

Stormy, come back to me Stormy

Stormy, come back to me Stormy

 

Come on home! Stormy

 

Bring back that sunny day

Never more to go astray

This'll be the end today

Sitting here on top of everywhere, what do I care.

Days never end, I know the voyages end will soon be here,

No eternal life is here for me.

And now I found the key to the eternal dream.

 

Then I will stay, Ill not be back, eldorado.

I will be free of the world, eldorado.

Then I will stay.

Seamus, that's the dog, was outside.

Seamus, my old hound, was outside.

Well, the sun sinks slowly

But my old hound just sat right down and cried.

You may have heard of jalopies,

You heard the noise they make,

Let me introduce you to my Rocket '88.

Yes it's great, just won't wait,

Everybody likes my Rocket '88.

Gals will ride in style,

Movin' all along.

 

(Guitar solo, leading into steel guitar solo.)

 

V-8 motor and this modern design,

My convertible top and the gals don't mind

Sportin' with me, ridin' all around town for joy.

(Spoken) -- Blow your horn, Rocket, blow your horn!

 

(Horn sound effect leading into guitar solo.)

 

Step in my Rocket and-a don't be late,

We're pullin' out about a half-past-eight.

Goin' on the corner and-a havin' some fun,

Takin' my Rocket on a long, hot run.

Ooh, goin' out,

Oozin' and cruisin' along.

 

(Guitar solo.)

 

Now that you've ridden in my Rocket '88,

I'll be around every night about eight.

You know it's great, don't be late,

Everybody likes my Rocket '88.

Gals will ride in style,

Movin' all along.

 

 

C.C. "Rider" - Elvis Presley

 

Well now see., C. C. Rider,

well now see, see what you have done.

Well now see., C. C. Rider,

well now see, see what you have done.

Well you made me love you woman,

Now your man has come.

 

So I'm goin' away now baby

And I won't be back till fall,

I'm goin' away now baby

And I won't be back till fall,

Just might find me a good girl

Might not be comin' back at all.

 

Well now see, C. C. Rider,

See now the moon is shining bright,

Well now see, C. C. Rider,

See now the moon is shining bright,

Just might find me that good girl

And everything would be alright.

I originally thought of Bonzo as in "Bonzo Dog doo dah Band but realised he no longer had his "Doo Dahs" so what about Jollity from the band

 

There’s a farm called Misery, but of that we’ll have none

Because we know of one

That’s always lots of fun (Ha ha!)

And this one’s name is Jollity; believe me, folks, it’s great

For everything sings out to us as we go through the gate

Well for the same reason the song "Great Balls of Fire" is out though I dearly love that song! :grin:

 

 

There are some great songs here and a lot of good names. I think we are going to the park and see which ones just might fit. Keep them coming!!!

Ziggy (stardust)

 

(We Are The ) Champion (s) by Queen

 

My best suggestion is still Charlie but I can´t think of any music with that. Your dog reminds me of my neighbours dog back home. He was a springer spaniel and so kind and cuddly. But what comes into my mind is Charlie Brown and that is not from music.

 

So Ziggy and Champion are my suggestions.

Good Time "Charlie"'s Got the Blues by Danny O'Keefe

 

Everybody's goin' away

Said they're movin' to LA

There's not a soul I know around

Everybody's leavin' town

 

Some caught a freight, some caught a plane

Find the sunshine, leave the rain

They said this town's a waste of time

I guess they're right, it's wastin' mine

 

Some gotta win, some gotta lose

Good time Charlie's got the blues

Good time Charlie's got the blues . . .
