    Talking Ready to name the foster boys, but can not decide!!

    I have had them for 3 weeks and have been trying to find them a forever home. I've had no luck, but am still trying. I truly am feeling like this will be their forever home and honestly- I am fine with this.

    I decided not to name them when they first came here only because I was afraid once I named them, I would quickly fall in love and would be heartbroken once going to their forever home. The falling in love part has happened even with out naming them. I think naming them is overdue at this point.

    They both have some serious trust issues. I know this is because of their background and I am being very patience with them. Neither of them like to cuddle and will literally claw your arm apart to get away. They are runners when I try to pick them up- but that comes at no surprise to me.

    The tri colored is very dominant and is clearly the top piggy. He is a biter- but never draws blood. You def feel it, though! The cute white one is about the same, but not nearly as dominant and doesn't bite as much. Was thinking of names that match their personality but I also want something that will still match them as they grow into (fingers crossed) tamer piggies. Any suggestions? I've googled and googled but had no luck finding something I loved.

    I don't have any name suggestions, but they are both gorgeous, and I am sure they will have no trouble finding their forever home.

    Thanks, they are very handsome boys!
    I have been having trouble finding their forever home, this is one of the reasons I am ready to name them. I feel bad for calling them the fosters'. :/

    Instead of Bubble and Trouble you could name them Toil and Trouble (Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble...)

    I like those names! They remind me of Hocus Pocus and my witchy life

    They're really cute by the way. I always wanted a himi! They're SUPER adorable. The tricolor is like, "What are YOU lookin' at?"

    I guess I would go for Pinky and The Brain!!! After all, once you have piggies, they DO take over your world!!! And I think we are all pretty ok with that!

    My piggies all have chocolate themed names, so sweets is where I usually go to when coming up with names. I'm thinking Oreo for the black/white one and Buttercream for the white one.

    Smokey and bandit! I think the others are too cliche and over used! Smokey is the white one i'm guessing?
