What is in a name with Wilhelmina.



 Wilhelmina, " I have been with my family for three weeks now. Here I am on my first adventure. It was raining outside! I weighed eight pounds. I went to the vet's yesterday for my second set of shots and I was also weighed. I now weigh sixteen pounds! I have doubled my weight in three weeks!"









































































































Wilhelmina, "My complete name as was given to me by LP and Daddyman is, Contessa Wilhelmina Starlyn Raspberry Rose. Those of you who have been visiting us for a long time know our family loves long names! Contessa was the name that Daddyman chose for me. Wilhelmina is a name of Dutch origins and means, "fierce and resolute protector." Starlyn means, " a small star of great beauty". The humans love star gazing so they like star influenced names. Raspberry, was my doggie mommy's name. Rose is after Angel Isadora Gypsy Rose. I go by Wilhelmina which is long enough but not as long as , Contessa Wilhelmina Starlyn Raspberry Rose! Can I tell you something? LP says I am the most clever puppy she has ever met. I even know my bed time and will tuck myself into my crate in the evenings, all by myself! Some times  LP will glance over at Daddyman when I do clever things and then say, "We are in BIG trouble!" I'm not sure what that means exactly but I will try hard to find out and then I will report back to you!"





Have a Terrific Tuesday!
See you soon.

  1. I think you will need to grow into that long time, Wilhelmina!

    P.S. My human heard somewhere that poodles are among the very most intelligent dogs.

  3. And here we foolishly thought the "raspberry" was for the ones you so impishly are giving in several of these photos!
    Speaking of imps, you do look ever so delightfully mischievous and yes, Big Trouble may lie ahead ...

  20. Pretty Wilhelmina,

    When I first read your name in your introductory post, I saw Isadora's name Rose was a part of it and I smiled. I was happy to think you would carry on her name.

    You are going to be fun for you mom and dad... I am glad. I can't wait to see the beautiful companion you will become.

    Love,
    Lily

  25. Billie-Bear "Panda! Am I hearing right? Mom said at 8 months, why are we still chewing on her clothing and stuff. She wants to dis-own us!"
    Panda-Bear "I heard she said dis-own! I have never seen mom gets so mad at me!"
    Billie-Bear "Let us look really cute like Wilhelmenia. Mom will love us again!"
    Panda-Bear "Good idea, Billie! Be really cute so she loves us again! Tomorrow, we chew mom's new boots inside the Steve Madden box. After all, we are only 8 months old. Geesh!"
