I think I complicated things when I asked for help! 
We liked many of the names suggested. Thank you all for your great ideas. 





Since she has almost purple eyes



and she is a beautiful soft white 








....she will be Violet Rose!






WHAT DID YOU  DO ON ADOPT THE INTERNET DAY?
by Patty 
from Catcalls & Dogbarks

Monday night as I was writing my blog post for Petfinder's Adopt the Internet Day, I decided to include pets from my own area. I naturally went to Rescue Village first since I have been involved with them in various activities. I found some sweet kitties, a handsome goat, cute pups and then.....there she was! Little Crystal! A three month old guinea pig looking for her FURever home. I was NOT looking for another piggie! But I took a quick vote from my boys...and the decision was made. Crystal was coming home with us. So off we went yesterday and did the paper work. While I was busy filling out forms and paying, my sons, Cody and Andrew, held Crystal in the pet room. We knew she liked Cody because she peed on him! (On a towel) 
So now I have four piggies again. She has met Tooey and CG. Thea still needs to be introduced. I am hoping I can get her to live with CG so she can snuggle with someone. But for now, I have four cages. She has already gone from hiding in her paper tubes to wandering about her cage and eating and drinking. I am sure it was just meant to be. So even if no other pets were adopted (which I'm sure was NOT the case), one little piggie is now in her FURever home surrounded by more love than she will know what to do with! 

We are considering a name change and would love to hear your ideas! 

Here is the happy babe!


She has dark, almost purple eyes. 



She is very inquisitive - not the least bit shy!








She has a little rosette on top of her head.



Meeting CG.
(CG is the largest guinea pig I have ever owned!)

If you have any name suggestions, please leave them in the comments for me.

A name just popped in to my head, and don't know why - Pandora.

But I see and like the name Violet.
Maybe Viola. (I like names that end in 'a')

Giupetto and Gianna Tails said...

I am so happy for you and for the little girl.

Well, I'm excited to death for this little girl! She is one lucky piggie :) I like Violet or Pandora either one... I'm not much help with naming -- I have an impossible time naming my own lol

thebluewindmill said...

Well my daughter thinks she should be named Rosie! I like it too because she's white and what's sweeter than a white rose!

Welcome to the family!

Very cool Patty!

How about Vixen? She seems like she'll be a handful with all of that curiosity :)

Giupetto and Gianna Tails said...

White in Italian is Bianca. :-)

Love the new little addition. Lets see name ideas:

Opal,
Courage,
Ginny,
Little Sis,
Tootsie
Twinkle
Dorthy
Ruth
Tess
Peewee (since she has already peed on someone)


OK, all I can think of right now.

What a beautiful piggy! She so very lucky to have come home to live with your family. I really like the name suggestions so far, but I'd probably keep the name Crystal or L.C., short for Little Crystal.

I had thought of Blanca, but then I saw Twinkle and I think I like that best. She brought a twinkle to my eye when you brought her home :)

Oskar said...

I like the original poster's idea of violet!

Sean said...

Congratulations! What a lucky piggie! I like Crystal. I would keep her name.

PetsJubilee said...

Violet Rose! Great name!

Happy Hounds said...

I think that is a perfect name!...and will we see little purple eyed Tooey Jr's in the future?
