We Would Love Your Help

Hi Furiends!  We've had an idea and we'd sure like your input.  We got super inspired when we read a recent post over at Two Pitties in the City about Wilbur, the island-hopping Pittie.  We fell in love with his relaxed frog pose. 



Well, one thought led to another, the way they sometimes do, and we decided that we wanted to create a calendar of Pitties in Frog Pose!  Now, if you're not a Pittie, you might be saying "Whoa, just wait a minute there!  Why just Pitties?!  We do a great Frog Pose!"  But, just hold that thought, 'cause if we can make this calendar happen, we would LOVE to do a Frog Pose calendar featuring any and all dogs.  We decided on Pitties for the first one 'cause we just really wanted to show the lovable, snuggable side of these sometimes misunderstood pups so that lots of people could see it and we thought - aha! a calendar!  Plus, we will donate all the proceeds to organizations that benefit Pitties - rescue, foster, shelters, medical care, education and training.  We've got several in mind, including Bad Rap among others, but haven't totally decided, so if you have a great one in mind, let us know.  We could donate to at least 2 or 3.

Okay, are you still with us???  Here's where you come in right now.  We need a GREAT name for the calendar.  We have already enlisted the help of some of our Pittie furiends and we've got some cool suggestions.  We would LOVE for you to weigh in on your favorite OR to suggest other great names.  We need to have the words "Pittie" and "Frog" in there in some form or fashion 'cause we want the little computer gizmos to find us when they're searching.  As soon as we have a GREAT name, we'll start a blog just for this calendar project.  Then all you Pitties can start sending in your fabulous frog pose photos.  So, even if you aren't a Pittie, you probably know a Pittie and they would love your help! 

Here are the names that have been suggested so far (thanks Roo and Mayzie).  Feel free to leave a comment with your fave OR email us if you've got other suggestions about this project.

Pit Bullfrogs (or Pit Bull Frogs)
Pittie-full Frogs
Dogs as Frogs
Kissa-Bull Frogs
Bull Frog Dogs

The Frog Pit (or Pitt) - we loved this one immediately but a frog-selling website has the domain name www.thefrogpit.com, which might be confusing.
Stay tuned for more details soon! And a HUGE SUPER THANKS for your help!

A frog selling website? GRRRRRRR That is so not cool! Anyways, pitties in frog pose is way cool. If'n I wake up in the middull of the nite with a name idea, I let you know, k? (I do my bestest thinking while I sleep.)

I love it!!

Love Dogs as Frogs and Bull Frog Dogs. The name thing is tricky, isn't it? We're renaming blogs and making a move to a sole domain, and it's frustrating find a great idea isn't unique.

Winnie said...

What a BRILLIANT idea!! The LOTH says she'll definitely publicise it on lostandfond.co.uk for it once the project's underway.

Pitties really need all the good publicity they can get in the UK, sadly.

We like Kissa-Bull Frog as a name - but it doesn't have pit in it. So it might need that for search engines wossisface?

Kissie Pittie Bull Frog?

Love and licks (and kissies galore for your great calendar idea), Winnie xx

Dory and the Mama said...

Smileys!

Doxie Rod said...

hi road dogs!! what a fantastic idea this is. even though we are a doxie, we fully support pitties getting some much deserved positive attention. the picture you posted is hilarious.

Amber DaWeenie said...

Dat's a great idea. Me be puttin' on my tinkin' cap and see what pops out of it.

Two Pitties in the City said...

It sounds like it's all coming along nicely, and it's so, so great to see such support for pitbulls. I noticed you have 'Bull Frogs', what about something like "Bully Frogs" because they're often called Bully Breed, and maybe a subheading for the search link?

Hip Hop Pittie

Pibble Frogs

Pup Fan said...

I love this idea! All the names are clever... hard to pick my favorite. :)

George the Lad said...

Hey great to see you all again, thanks for your visit, just been catching up on your bloggie, love The Original Railroad Dog, he was a cute little feller, I'd like to go on a train one day.
All them folks skinny dipping, when I was on holiday I thought I could sit down in the sea!!heck it was cold mom thought it was very funny how quick I got up!!
That photo of the Pittie is sooo funny, even I can't put my legs out like that, love your idea, as you may know the are band over here, it comes down to them being with the wrong owners, as I know they are a lovely breed in the right hands.
If I can come up with a name I will pop back.
Have a good week
See Yea George xxx

What a great idea, we don't have a Pitties here so it will be great to see chilled out Pitties. You can't beat the Frog Dog sleeping position, Louis is an expert and won't sleep any other way. We can't think of a clever title right now but we'll get the old thinking cap on :-) Dex and Lou xxx

we fell in love w/ the pitties we worked with at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary during our 3 month road trip. we like the name pit bull frog dogs. arf!

the booker man said...

what a grrreat idea!! my big sis asa does a totally awesome froggie doggie pose, too. teehee.
i thought of "froggie doggin' it" for a title, but that doesn't have "pittie" in it. hmmmm...maybe "froggie doggin' it: pittie style"?

*woof*
the booker man

pee s -- HA! my 'n asa totally did not get our toesies painted! we would NOT stand for that!! we are wearin' plastic nail cap thingies so we don't scratch our grammy 'n grampy's nice hardwood floors.

Sarge said...

Hey Road Dogs!
Wow, what a pawesome idea! I think this is a great thing to do. I like Dogs As Frogs. I'm sure you'll get a huge big response to this!
Grr and Woof,

Mack said...

Roo said...

Hi! :D

Mom had a thought today. Turns out it was very similar to Road Dogs!

"Why Just Dog It, When You Can Frog It!" --- The Bull Frog Dogs of 2012

Anyway, there you have her 2 cents ;)

Waggin at ya,
Roo

Roo said...

So Mom's a dolt sometimes :)

She meant similar idea to Booker. Sheesh!

Waggin at ya,

Hmmm... What about "Kiss that Pittie Frog"? Then again, maybe I've been reading too many fairy tales.
