If you would like to help name our new puppy here’s how to submit your nomination:

Email your nomination to


Email Diane your name suggestion and tell us in whose memory you’re making your nomination.  Tell us about the person and why you would like to honor his/her memory (public/community service, mentoring, philanthropy, etc).

All nominations must be received by 5 PM, Sunday, November 27, 2011.


Diane will choose her top six names and post them on our Facebook page for everyone to vote.  The Facebook Poll will start on Monday, November 28 and votes will be collected through 6 PM, Wednesday, November 30, 2011.

This young lad will be in training to become a Guide Dog for a person with disabilities, so his name should be in honor of someone whose life was lived in service to others.
