Non gender names...
Shortened versions based on African countries WD members ride thru often.


Nam, Moz, Bots.

Or perhaps Sani if Bots is unsuitable.

Ok guys - thanks for all the input on the names.  The official word from Louise at Sanwild is that the puppies have been called by the following names:

We have chosen the following names: Uhambo, Thinta, Babazeka.

Louise has also mentioned that she is hoping to see some of the Wild Dog people soon - perhaps one of you would like to organise a visit?

You are so lucky - I have always desperately wanted to visit.  Maybe one day, but in the meantime, it would be good to get a report back from others.

Have fun

EV

I might sound like a sourpuss but I do not ... so ... who came up with those names?   ??? Was there a separate thread for choosing names? You can not give a kid sweets and then take it back.  >:( OK. I am a sourpuss. Sorry.    ;)

They chose names already as posted previously and as for the rest, I don't know.  I waas hoping that someone from the area would arrange a visit, the banking details etc. are up and if you want, I can arrange a fundraiser for the place on behalf of Wild Dogs in October maybe here in Cape Town and maybe someone would like to do the same in Gauteng and Durban.

But yeah, I think if the people in Gauteng maybe did a Sunday ride to the place or an overnighter, I could arrange that with Louise if you just give me dates, just so that you can all check it out.

Come back to me with what you would like to do, but please, I can't do everything compeltely on my own.  If we are going to do this, I would need to liaise with volunteers, so either pm me or lejane@bunnyhuggers.co.za it is.

Thanks

 ;D  Good Idea.  I can tell you a great place for us to visit here in the Cape - the Drakenstein Lion Park with a special talk by the owner.  Fantastic place, fantastic work done - very special.  I can always arrange.....

Anyway, back to saving the world again.  Hope I can also post the fundraiser for the Campaign against Canned Hunting on the 12th September in Table View, the raffle for the Lion Sanctuary, the animal rights film festival, the Animals Rock Concert in Durbanville in November where you can see a wild dog in action on drums, the animal awareness day in December which ends in an eighties party with band and all.

As you can see, the only time we can fit a fundraiser for Sanwild in is in October, but I think I could put something together pretty good together as long as I can rely on you guys to ensure that all the tickets are sold.

Thanks.......

I've just realised, I could most prob sort out a function Joburg as well, but would need Wild Dogs to promise to sell tickets if we are going to go ahead and one person to oversee proceedings as I wouldn't be able to fly up and finalise everything.

anyway, all up to you guys, call me if you ever wish me to go ahead.
