Guess who's in MY tub And - Enter the CONTEST!

I am so fortunate - - Another of my big dreams has come true - **Weasels**! And, Mr. Wonderful was SO excited, he could not contain himself! (Ya - right!)
POP! Go the weasels, right into the tub!

Anyone up for a "Contest"? The name I chose for the male weasel below is "Diesel". I'm not up on the correct terms for the various color blends in ferrets, but he appears to be perhaps a sable? If anyone is versed in coloration of these creatures, please let me know!For the Contest, what I would like is a great name for the lighter silver colored female ferret. Her coloring reminds me of a Siamese Cat... See her pictures below:
As a prize for the best name, the lucky winner will receive their choice of 2 sets of blank note cards from my etsy shop! These can be ANY 2 sets - Corgi note cards, Rattie note cards, or even the personalized note cards with your pet's photo on them! Go to ClassyChassy and look at the paper products for current note card designs. The winner will be announced this Friday! So, put on your thinking caps, and reply in the COMMENTS section with a good name for Diesel's partner in crime! The name that tickles my fancy will win!

yay!!!! I can't believe you have ferrets now! Corgis and ferrets go so well together :)

I think you are correct that your Diesel is a sable and your female is a sable. If she is young, she will probably turn pure white as she gets older.

I'm never good at naming pets though. How about Cricket, Layla, Nissa, Nora, Roxy, Sprite...

You're going to have so much fun :)

Cute, we had 3 Ferrets growing up. One Albino girl and 2 dark multi colored boys.
How about Maybelle? Rhyming with Sable. Our girl's name was Snowball but she was a true all white albino. The boys names were Kaleb and Gage.

This little ferret is very pretty. I would call her "Bella" (beautiful) or "Blanca" (white).

Chatty Crone said...

Okay Diesel - (gas) what else could you name her but Ethel?

SueLovesCherries said...

What a fun idea! Now, I haven't read any of the other entries, so if mine is a duplicate, go with the other one.

I was thinking of Liesl, as in Sound of Music. It rhymes with Diesel! Then you will have Liesl and Diesel Weasel!

Olde Dame Penniwig said...

Wow, I think Liesl and Slinky are great names!

Here are some more, came to me last night:

Sugar
Bramble
Duchess
Gretel
Powder
Sweetie
