Apparently she was originally known as "Grumpy" but they thought that'd put people off adopting her, ha ha.

My grandad would titter at the thought of going out for a walk with a bit of ‘crumpet’....
Crumpet is a great name, and a great looking dog!
I want to call our dog Waffles but MrsDeth vetoed. She was keen on a name ending in an EE sound for shouting in the park.
My little dog is called Milo. He also responds to the names: Milton, Mildew, Mildred, Doris and Dog. Don't get to hung up about Crumpet's name she'll respond if the tone is right. The number of dogs I know(n) that respond to Wassziss? is huge, especially when said in an interesting way and associated with a suitable treat. In a nut shell if you're super interesting she'll respond to any word. I asked my niece to stop just calling his name (repeatedly) when she wanted him and say Milo, come! instead. Thankfully I seem to be able to train 8 yr olds too.
We have two Waffles in our local park already. A few years ago every other puppy was Dexter or Walter. People don't half advertise their telly viewing when they name their dogs.
My black labs are always called Guinness, Beamish and Murphy, the next one will be Guinness III.
Can’t breathe but won’t put that feckin ball down.
Anyone use Puffin pet insurance?
Having a dog called Comet isn't great for recall training - settled on 'Here', as a command, not a name.
My Nan had a dog called "Ereboy" when she was growing up.
We've just brought Crumpet home! She's so calm, she's done a quick lap of the living room and has settled already. Blue, our 8 year old cat has had one minor swipe at her when she got a bit over familiar, she left him alone but didn't seem too upset. It's probably a good thing that he's establishing his boundaries with her. So excited to get to know her!
Crumpet looks like a little smasher, congrats!
Thanks! She already seems to be settling in quite nicely.
Aww she looks at home already.
Yep, I'd say she's fairly comfortable being here!
So looks so sweet and happy. Any idea what she is?
We've not really got any clue! She's very houndy but with a labrador tail. We think she'll be about lab sized when she's fully grown.
Awesome Doggo - congrats! Looks a bit German Shepherd to me.
That's a good call actually! Similar tail and hair colour.
Congrats mate, she's lovely. Definitely seeing the German Shepherd in her.
Crumpet looks like an absolute belter
I can't believe how much she's come out of her shell already. I don't want to get complacent or over confident but she seems to feel right at home.
She'll evict you in a day or two. :)
From the memes thread, your welcome 😁
