    My wife and I are looking to adopt a chocolate lab puppy, and we're having difficulty coming up with names for her.

    SO...

    Does anyone have any good shooting or gun related names for a female dog?

    I've come up with Benelli, but I'm not sold ( at least it would give me leverage to convince my wife I need a new shotgun, as I don't own a Benelli)

    Maybe Ricochet, particularly if she likes to bounce around.

    My sister-in-law used to have a dog named Bullet, so named because they found it in such rough shape that they almost put it down.

    I've heard of dogs named "Bowser" - which makes me think of "Mauser"!

    Winnie, short for Lady Winchester
    Brownie, short for browning or Browning
    LadySmith
    Big Bertha ;) ask Herr Krupp
    Nadine (FMJ)
    Frizzen (peope will thing you mean her frizzy hair)

    You can't name a dog Dakota unless he/she lives in a jeep in Crested Butte CO.


    How about "Annie". You can know it's about Ms. Oakly, others will assume you like musicals.

    Bullet sounds good for a greyhound - or for any fast running dog.

    Browning/Brownie does seem pretty perfect.

    Plus you can yell 'John Moses!' when the puppy eats your shoes.

    Once had a Lab named Dash..seemed a good fit. Buddy has a Brittany named "Gage".... very fitting also.

    Also... lab mix named "Hawkeye"

    But I'd like to see some pics too:)
