That's because back in the day, we changed and flipped around Zoe and Scout's names during the first few weeks that we had them. As we figured out their personalities, we figured out their names.
It wasn't immediate.
So we thought, this time, we'd just wait and see what names seemed to stick with these two before introducing them by name.
Here are some of the names we've considered:
Daisy and Duke
Harry and Sally
Poncho and Lefty
Sunny and Shiner
Max and Minnie
Fred and Ginger
Winston and Clementine
Barney and Betty
Butch and Sunny
Lucy and Ricky
Bennie and Sunny
I think, and please realize this could change, that Lucy and Ricky seem to be who they are. Lucy, the silly little red head-
I used to refer to Zoe and Scout so often as "the girls". As in, "I'm taking the girls for a walk", and "C'mere girls!" I realized that since this time around I have one boy and one girl, using one pronoun to represent them both won't work. But what could work instead is "the Ricardos".
Also, I like that I can call Lucy by her full maiden name, Lucille McGillicuddy and I can call Ricky by his full name-- Ricky Ricardo. There are times when it's nice to stretch out a name for effect. "Lucille McGillicuddy! Get out of those bushes!"
We've had our puppies less than a week, so it might be a bit early to officially deem them The Ricardos. But that looks like where we're headed...
