They are a beautiful litter – lively, fat and sassy. Of course, all are relentlessly fawn brindle. Pretty heads and markings. It’s now day two and they are eating like fiends and gaining weight. Dither is a fabulous mother. Puppies have temporary names for the time they live with us before joining their new families. They make me want to dance, so they are all named for dances.
Who says you have to be right side up to eat.
Here are the little ballerinas:
|“Macarena” – A dance based on the popular 1993 song ‘Macarena’ by the Spanish duo Los del Río, the Macarena consists of set movements performed to the song’s fast Latin rhythm. Macarena is a popular Spanish female first name.|
And the boys:
|“Boogalo” A popular rock ’n‘roll dance of the 1960s, boogaloo is characterized by swivelling and shuffling movements of the body. Boogaloo is probably an alteration of boogie, modeled after hullabaloo.|
|“Charleston” Named after one of the largest cities in South Carolina, the Charleston is a fast dance developed in the 1920s and is characterized by turning the knees inward and kicking the ankles out.|
|“Rumba” The rumba is a rhythmic dance of Afro-Cuban origin, which is danced on the spot with pronounced hip movement. The word rumba comes from the Cuban Spanish rumba ‘party, spree’. This little guy is apparently bored, yawning with his tongue out.|
