My Little Layla

The Cameron family grew by one this past weekend. Meet our new pup Layla! I first met Layla at the SPCA of Texas and instantly fell in love with her. She was petrified – extremely scared of people and suffering in the shelter environment. We are guessing that she was running with a pack of strays because she is perfectly comfortable around other dogs, it’s just people that make her nervous – very nervous. I spent a couple of hours with her at the SPCA trying to get her to warm up to me, and hopefully others. But I ended up falling in love with her and just two days later she was here in our home. Layla is such a sweet girl but still painfully shy – we are working on it and she is getting more comfortable with us every minute. She is already best friends with her big brother Willie!

We have no idea what type of breeds are in Layla, but we plan on asking our vet. Any guesses?

Now here is where I need your help. We kept Layla’s name from the SPCA, we felt like it really did fit her shy demeanor. But we are stuck on her middle name. Yes, all dogs need a middle name. Willie’s full name is Wilson Lincoln Kolle Cameron (seriously). We just can’t seem to find the right fit for Layla. So I am asking you guys… What should Layla Cameron’s middle name be??

I think this last photo might be my favorite, as far as Layla’s first day at our home, this pretty much says it all. Such a sweet girl! By the way – I realize that all of these photos are in the same spot, that’s because for some reason she decided the back door floor matt was her safe spot for the day… Many many more photos to come, that is once she’s ready 😉


K-10 So, I discovered the Abe Lincoln’s wife’s name is Mary Todd, so keeping in the Lincoln theme with Willie’s name you could consider Mary or Todd…or go with something of a historical name since Lincoln is historical.

Or, since Eric Clapton made the song Layla so popular, you could go with Layla Clapton Kolle Cameron.

Just a few ideas to get the ball rolling! :)

Wild Wild Valley What about Andy? She’s the hotter chick in The Goonies — you know, to go along with ‘One Eyed Willie’

Jeffrey Tookey Congratulations – that is awesome! I think her middle name should be Chocolate Caramel Brownie as I think she is part Basenji, part Terrier and part Chocolate Caramel Brownie. Can’t wait to meet her. I would love to assist in helping her to feel comfortable around people.

alisa What a sweetheart. How did you ever wait 1.5 years?? I like photo #9 where she is holding her head high and looking out the window. I think that’s what she will look like when she gets over her shyness. You could name her Layla Shyanne.

alisa By the way, Layla, you hit the jackpot when it comes to your new home!

april Congrats on your new addition! She’s so adorable, I can definitely see how you fell in love w/ her!!

mr blue mutt I’m digging the Goonies reference with “Andy”. Layla Fratelli Cameron? Layla Chunk Cameron? Layla Stephanie Cameron (the only other female Goonie was Steph)? Layla Astoria Cameron (the town)?

Greg Bailey how about Layla “mikey’s maid that almost got run over in the middle of the street by the fratellis while she was carrying groceries at the beginning of the movie” Cameron?

ashley folkema How could she not melt your heart? She is most precious! Bless your heart for bringing her into your family. :)

Kaysi I like Layla May. She has a ladylike quality in her photos.

alexa Congrats! What a sweet little dollbaby! Those eyes! :) Sorry- can’t help with the middle name, I’m bad when it comes to naming.

Taylor I’m so excited for you guys! I can’t wait to meet her as well! I’ll keep thinking about the middle name.

Angela Layla is gorgeous, so glad she has found a lovely home :-)
