Where do the names come from?
For everybody, saying we should call it LoLaBuBiLand... One needs to put a stop somewhere, you know I like short names:). Imagine how long you would need to pronounce our Center's name when I'm 80 or something:). Lo, La and Bu were my dogs when I opened a virtual LoLaBuLand and then decided to keep the same name. LaBuBi is our video team and I guess eventually I will need to think of a product to be named BuBiLe and then BiLeBo etc. Yeah, just in case you were wondering if I still have some names ready:).
Now, the story with names is actually a very long one too. When I decided Lo will be called Lo, I still thought she will be a Samoyed and will be called Lo, as in "Law of Nature". To make my parents happy (or let me put it this way: a little less unhappy) I decided for a smaller dog then, but I liked the name so much that it was a keeper.
When I started to search for La, I started to learn French, borrowing the tapes in library to listen&repeat some basic French sentences. I was always good in math and physics and stuff where things makes sense and foreign languages were always my weakest point as NOTHING makes sense, you just need to remember million of words, how terrible is that for somebody with my memory!?! One of the sentences I needed to repeat like an idiot was "The church is over there". The rest was difficult, but "over there", la-bas was somewhat catchy. In the next session, the man on the tape explained "la" means "there", but can also mean "here" in same cases. Sounded as a perfect name. La - here and there in the same moment! Can't describe La much better than that!:)
And now we had a pattern... Lo and La. For Bu, my first choice would be Bo (means "will be" in Slovenian), but as it sounds too much like Lo, I decided to only use Bo as a name when Lo gets deaf. So I was thinking Pu or Bu and went with Bu, so Bi could only be Bi or Be, that's why she is Bi and if you follow the pattern you can guess my next one must be PyrShep Le, followed by BC Bo (Lo turned deaf just few weeks ago, so we are ready for Bo now...:) and eventually, I will come to Ej too, I have that one ready for ages, but it somehow doesn't fit in.
That's in short a history of my dogs' names, in case you wondered where they come from.
OK, so the names are ready, how about everything else? Do you already know who Le’s parents will be? Are you planning on getting a new puppy anytime soon, now that you have so much space 🙂
That’s explain everything clearly :o)
What’s funny -- I’m just waiting for my new pyrshep puppy and her call-name that I chosen is Lee actually -- I’m adding her photo to this comment ;o)
…and I’m really sorry to hear about Lo turning deaf :o( and wish her well!
Wow, what a cutie! From which kennel is she? And well, Lo is still doing great, her not hearing anymore doesn’t affect our walks together or whatever. The only change is that her fear of shooting is gone now:).
First of all I’m really glad to hear that Lo is still doing great!
My Lee is actually from litter that was recommended by You -- only I wasn’t the one who was asking because I didn’t really know You (despite the fact that I’m visiting Your site almost every day and for sure every week since it arise)… so my cute little lady is from Entre Nous and I will get her in June.
Juhu, our puppies comes last night.
Haha, I LOVE your dogs name’s! 😀
So is Le pronounced Lee then? That’s interesting because I also have a PyreShep with that name. He is a male Rough face that will be 2 years old this summer. I spell the name “Li” though.
Le is not pronounced as Lee/Li, it’s too similar to Bi. It’s pronounced as first two sounds in “let’s go”, for example. Very cute, your Li!
…so comes out I wasn’t original with the idea of name Lee pronounced “Li”. But well -- my pyrshep is a girl :o)
Mariah -- your Lee looks very nice!
