Alpaca Naming Contest- We have a Winner!!

Wow, first of all I just want to say thank you! What a COOL group of folks I have who read my blog! I was totally floored by all the responses, and I had SO much fun!!

Now, the results are in!! And I am going to let my little cria take over here. But read to the end, I have more to say about the "runner up" :))

Well, first of all I had to shove my way in!!! See- here I am trying to get to that 2-legger, I couldn't wait to hear my name! The other crias have been teasing me, calling me 'no-name' and stuff. Then momma told me that Quickbeam didn't have a name for four whole months!!! HA!! Anyway.....

This is the reason I couldn't get to the 2-legger.... her name is Osita and she's a camera hog!! She just loooooves that 2-legger, and every time she comes out here, Osita has to hog all the space around her.

I mean, just look at her!!!!!

I don't know how you can miss her...... she's as big as a house.

Here I am, FINALLY!! I tried to SPIT my way in.... but I don't think I really have the hang of that yet.....

So, when I got here, that 2-legger went on and one, telling me all about all the cool names that she got, and how it was so hard for that giant 2-legger who brings the food ( I call him Daddy) to choose. I told her to let ME choose, but I don't think she heard me. But she said that the final decision was- Elbereth- Lady of the Stars. I LOVE it!!! It is so pretty, just like me! Thank you Mousie!!

Then she said that Daddy said that the next cria born already has a name!! No matter if it's a boy or a girl it's gonna be Narya because he loved that name so much!! So, what's the deal I ask?? They get a name already?!?! And I had to wait?!?!?!


Anyway, I love the name- it is perfect, just like me! And the 2-legger loves it too. And she doesn't have to think about the next name! The new cria should be born in September, and the 2-legger is hoping that she will be born on her birthday again, like Rosie Cotton was last year, and my momma was waaaaayyy back in 2000.

Well, thanks everyone who helped me find a name! I really think it's cool that everyone loves me so much, they would help me find the perfect name. I'll see you all soon! Back to the 2-legger! I'm gonna go bounce someone..... hmmm.... maybe that pushy Osita..... Bye!


Rachelle here again! So, as you can see we had a winner, and a runner up! Mousie- you get the scarf and picture for Elbereth- Lady of the Stars!! Woo-hoo!!!

And Silfiriel- I am sending you a picture, and a little stuffed alpaca because we loved your name- Narya so much, we are going to use it for our next cria!

Cool beans methinks. Next post, I am going to introduce you to all the alpacas! I will post a picture, and a little about them- so you can get to know my extended family. Hmmm..... might have to break it up into 2 or 3 posts, there are a lot of pacas here!!

Check back soon! And thank you, so very, very much! Mousie and Silfiriel could you email me and give me your addresses? :))

Rachelle said...

Dear Silfiriel,
You're not going to leave now and never come back now that the contest is over are you?
*sniffles..... looks lonely....*

Rachelle said...

Dearest Mousie,
Congratulations godmother!
I know my daughter is in very good hands with you :))

Rachelle said...

Dear Shrink,
Awwww... *blushes*
Love you girl!!

silfiriel said...

would I do that!? ahhhh, I am disappointed now that you would think that of me.After I first spoted this blog , I spent the whole next day searching for it (you should google index it, BTW), I barely found it. Althoug I haven't read any of your previous post (guilty as charged), but unless it's a hard copy I don't read more then 1 page. I just can't read on screens.

Rachelle said...

Dear Silfiriel,
I am very, very glad to hear you will hang around! I am glad to have met you.
I was just kidding around with you, I know when someone has got "Alpaca Fever" ... ah, your hooked! :))
They are enchanting, I know- and so darned cute!
See you again soon!
