That's too funny. I love when people pick names that are so unexpected. I bet your puppy is a perfect Asbjorn. Thanks for sharing.

All your pups are just so adorable.
My little Ulrike was named really by fluke. I was looking for names and I was torn between a japanese one and a german one. Then I recalled an acquaintance called Ulrike who went by "Uli". Then I did some research and it means "the power of the wolf" or "the power of the home" so Voila! When I went to get her the name fit her perfectly. Besides she does have a dignified personality,... until it goes to silly lol

My husband is allergic to dogs, so we wanted a fluffly hypoallergenic dog. We originally thought we would be getting a Coton de Tulear, so we were considering French names. Then my husband reacted to a Coton we met, and we discovered the Havanese. Even though we got a Cuban dog, we gave her a French name: Chamallow Brule. (Not putting accents for fear of getting gobbledygook.) Her name means "burnt marshmallow." I'm attaching a picture of her when she was two and a half weeks old. Doesn't she look like her name? Since no one wants to say "Chamallow Brule," her nickname is Shama. I tell people it rhymes with mama so it will be easy to pronounce. We are thrilled to have discovered the Havanese breed. Shama is an absolute delight!

Fluff ball: Ulrike is a great name for your little princess. Love unusual names. Do you call her by her full name or do you call her Uli, like your friend? And can you explain the exact pronunciation of Ulrike please?

Shamamama: Yes, your little Shama, looks like her full name. It's perfect for your little toasted marshmallow. Do you ever call her by her full name? I think it's really pretty though Shama is definitely easier to say and is adorable too. BTW, that picture of her is too cute. She's so tiny. Do you have a recent picture? I'd love to see how she looks now.

We have occasionally called her by her full name, but it's mostly just Shama. Here are three photos which were taken on September 19, when she was just shy of 15 weeks old. She just loves her new Chuckit! Kick Fetch Ball.

Call her Uli makes it quicker especially when she is off chasing birds.

Little cute puppies!
