I found this little guy at an estate sale today. I nearly left him behind, after all, do I need a blue 1950s puppy?

Apparently I do. 

I've learned with estate sales buy now, consider it later. There's a few items I've left behind in the past that I still regret, luckily this puppy will not be one of them! Glad I got him :)

As you can see, he matches my christmas tree, I still need a star for it, then I'll show it to you guys officially! 

So, what should I name him?

I have that exact type of toy, only mine's a dalmation! Do you happen to know the brand/toy company it's from? Mine doesn't have any kind of tag and I've always wondered about it

No tags :(

I've got a turquoise poodle who could be your puppy's cousin! I found him a few years ago and he made my inner 6 year old do flip flops. I named my poodle Francois Michel. He is a horrible influence on me ;)

he looks sophisticated! like his name would be Edmund or or Archibald! archie foe short ;)

I would say Sam, because he reminds me of a book I once read where there was a little blue puppy named Sam. Seeing as you already have a Sam though, I don't know that that would work. In that case, my vote is for Max :)

my grandma has a bucket load of toys like this from mum's childhood. a guy tried to buy them off her, but she wouldn't let him. names: sherbet, vertigo, teacup

I think he looks like a Barnaby. Something about the pink and the blue and how childlike his button eyes are.... but I like Fred too. How about Barnaby Fred Cornell? That sounds nice to me. :-)

If you need a star for your tree and feel like putting your mad knitting skillz to work, I was very happy with the results from the Stjarna pattern by Karolina Eckerdal on ravelry. It's fiddly, but I did it in a sparkly light blue and was very happy with it!

Look at that little red tongue! Why don't you name him "Blue Boy" after the famous Gainsborough painting?

Amanda said...

So sweet, lovely colourings. The name Snowdrop or Scamp popped into my head for a name.

The first name that came to my mind was "Elvis".
"I'll have a bluuuuuuue Christmas without you.
I'll be so blue just thinking about you.
