Thanks to everyone from our Tysons Corner and White Flint locations who played the Name Game with us and took the time to share their thoughts on name choices for the new Obama family dog!
We thought you all had wonderfully creative ideas, but had to narrow it down and ultimately, Reiko, Bridget and Lisa were are choices for Best of the Best:
How about Noa [noh' (w)ah], it means freedom in Hawaiian…
Bridget S says:
I hope they are able to get a breed-specific rescue – this article says they are trying!
Maybe Garrett as a tribute to their home city famous popcorn. Or Windy for a girl. To remind them of home!
Lisa McGrath says:
I love to match a dog’s name to it’s personality. If they go with Waterdog, I like naming it something water-related like Cliff (as in cliffs into the sea), India (as in Indian ocean), Skipper or Gilligan. For a labradoodle, I like Muffin, Curly, or Teddy.
Who doesn't love a Spa Day?
We loved the idea of incorporating the President’s Hawaiian history into the name and it was great that Bridget mentioned the ability to work with a breed rescue in her response. We also just like the name Windy. Lisa clearly put some thought into her response, taking the dog’s breed into account.
For their special prize, each of their dog’s will receive certificates for luxury Spa Days at Dogtopia White Flint or Dogtopia of Tysons Corner. Their dogs will be pampered with a soothing bubble bath, pawdicure nail trim, fragrant spritz and bandana the next time they visit us!
Thanks again to everyone who participated!
