Nobody involves you in the puppy process and development like we do and now we’re going toÃ‚Â incorporate your involvement even further…now YOU will pick the Max x ToryÃ‚Â litter’s THEME!
What is a litter theme?
A litter theme is a nice way of linking all the puppies from the litter together even after they go to their new homes.Ã‚Â In most cases we use the litter theme to pick the registered name for our puppies that we keep for show.Ã‚Â Many puppy buyers choose to pick the registered name for their puppy based on the litter theme also so that their puppy is always connected back to the litter-mates.Ã‚Â
For example, the litter theme when Tory was born was Envy, her registered name is Woodcrest Torrential Envy, and we picked her call name off of Torrential to get Tory.Ã‚Â Often when we refer to the Trooper x Kadie litter we might say the “envies” to reference the litter.Ã‚Â
Registered names always begin with the kennel name where the puppies were born and we try to include the call name in the registered name if we can.Ã‚Â The theme doesn’t have to be a word to include in the registered names, it can also be a category from which all the registered names are derived.Ã‚Â For example, we used exotic cars to derive Woodcrest Phantom Limited Edition and Woodcrest Avanti Revival.
A litter theme can be anything, there is infinite possibility.Ã‚Â We do have some guidelines for you though.Ã‚Â Many, many other breeders use movies, books, and songs for their themes/registered names/call namesÃ‚Â so we want to stay away from that.Ã‚Â We want the theme to be unique, something nobody else has used.Ã‚Â So be creative!Ã‚Â Also, many other breeders use cutesy names and themes, we prefer something…less flowery…more dark and twisty.Ã‚Â We will not use themes that we have used in the past or that other breeders we know of have used.Ã‚Â That being said, there are no rules, so feel free to break any outlined here!
ANYBODY can participate, other breeders, previous puppy buyers, future puppy buyers, lovers, haters, lurkers, anyone and their little dog too… we’re even going to throw a couple in ourselves.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Only ideas submitted as comments to this post will be considered.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â You can submit as many ideas as you can think of, there is no limit, but submit each idea as a separate comment.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Include the reasoning behind your idea if you want.Ã‚Â
*If it is the first time you have commented, your comment will be held for moderation which is only done to prevent spamming.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Rest assured, if your submission and email address look legit it will be approved, andÃ‚Â your email is not shared on the site.Ã‚Â **If you get an error when you submit your comment, we are very sorry.Ã‚Â There is some glitch right now that we hope will be fixed soon.Ã‚Â The comment is going through (and being moderated if applicable), so please don’t re-submit right away.
The submission periodÃ‚Â will end onÃ‚Â March 27th, at which point we will close the comments on this post, so you haveÃ‚Â a coupleÃ‚Â weeks to come up with as many ideas as you want.Ã‚Â We will take a week or so to catch our breath (puppies are due the following week too) and to pick out our favorites from the ideas submitted.Ã‚Â Then we will open up a Poll andÃ‚Â YOU WILL VOTEÃ‚Â to chose the winner.Ã‚Â You will probably only be allowed one vote per computer, so you’ll have to go to the library if you want to inflate the votes on your favorite.
That’s it.Ã‚Â It’s all up to you!Ã‚Â
