welcome to the forum, if you get an account with either flickr or photobucket (both free) then you can upload the pic onto them then choose a smaller size to post onto here.

Anyhoo.. names.. I love names but I think picking one that fits her personality or look is a good way to go. Usually when I see the animal I am naming, the first thing that pops into my head for a name is what I end up going with. All the animals except Emmy, Asher and Speedbump (in my signature) were named that way :P

Good luck with your new dog and when you think of a name I'd love to hear what you chose.

i agree with MSE, we could really help you if you got a photo bucket account so we can see the photo.... you have most of the time to figure out a name usually personality or how they look helps... My family is abit hungarian, so Atilla the first dog we got after a few year's was named after Atilla the hun... Than Cinco was named because she was the 5th in the family... and Beuford is named because of his personality (my dad named my dog for me LOL, wierd huh ? but than it suits him perfectly)

I like the name Kinzie for a girl dog, but in your short list I like Dunno too. My next girl dog (It should be awhile though as my oldest is 14 but he's a pretty healthy poodle) is going to be named Kinzie Girl.

Ok,I love this kind of thing!Although I would tend to agree with MSE,it's easier to name a dog when you know what they look like,you may find what seems like a perfect name at the time,then when you actually meet the dog the name doesn't suit his/her personality,colour or even breed.But I'll give you some suggestions!
Amy
Trixie (this is a very common dog name!)
Cindy
Lizzy (my dogs name!)
Bella
Dandy
Adorabelle
Licksy
etc
Do some research and find out some names,then look at their meanings!

Meeka, I like Licksy. That's cute. By the way, every time I see your name I smile. My daughters 2 year old shelter rescue GS mixes name is Meeka.

My name is Dustie (spellied with the ie cause I'm a girl). ;-)
I've known a few dogs named Dusty, one I rescued and changed her name right away. That was just too confusing. She was a year old when we changed her name from Dusty to Nooker. She was a rescue we were going to try to find a home for. She was a large breed mix and lived to a ripe old 14 yrs as one of our family. So much for our good intentions of rehoming her. Guess I just couldn't part with a fellow Dusty.
