Naming across registries UUUGH

For those of us that show or want to show our dogs.

Postby Patch O' Pits » December 27th, 2006, 10:48 am

Ok I have a quick question..

Do any of you have dogs tht are named different things in different registries???

Touche' and Bodacious's UKC reg names are both 30 letters long and ADBA only allows for 25 letters

I had that problem with Patcheeno's reg name and ended up cutting it short in UKC so it would be the same, but I worked so hard on the the pups names I don't want to shorten them UUUGH

So what do you think???

Riggs has two names, it's annoying and one is spelled wrong.

I'd try to keep them the same so all the awards, titles and other certificates will match!

My friend had that problem and just spelled the name differently for the ABDA, basically leaving some letters out but phenetically it sounded the same.

I think it's stupid that there's a letter limit.

That is what I wanted to do but taking 5 letters off really ruins the name UUUGH

EX here is Touche's name:
Patch O'T Ill B Puttn-M 2Shame

I'd have to change it to something like this
PatchO Il B Putn-M 2Shame ( that isn't too bad but it really screws up her sisters name

Bodacious's name is even harder to try to shorten
Patch O'T Built-M 2B Invincibl

I 'd have to do something like
PatchO Built-M 2B Invincibl (which is still 2 spaces too long UUUGH)

I hate the ADBA naming rules I don't know why they can't have 30 letters like UKC and AKC do

I wonder if they'd let me squeeze by with a couple of extra letter LOL

That's still too many too

The closest I could get was: PatchO Built-M2B Invincibl

but was trying to keep the -M seperate because it is in their names to honor Sock-M. That's why I said there dumb rule ruins the names. Thanks though. I'm just frustrated

... now there is really no room. I'm on hold to talk to someone else now. They actually are very nice people at ADBA and helpful, but it looks like the names definately will be different because
Now they are telling me if I don't want to register my kennel name for 200 bucks I then have to include my initials in front of the name which makes for more letters instead of less now. Honestly if I had the money I'd just pay the stinkin' fee

Maybe I should just squish it all together
TW Patchobuilt-M2BInvincibl

that still makes 27

Thanks for listening to me vent

Aww shit. It's a shame they can't all be on the same page! It is too confusing trying to figure out which dog is which because of the difference in rules & lengths

Drop the a or t out of Patch.
Soleil is Laster's Beau Soleil w/ADBA, HDK's Beau Soleil w/UKC. Both of threm put a space between Beau and Soleil, I wanted it together, but the S capitalized. Okye can't use HDK (Hard Drive Kennels), I believe because you have to register your kennel names w/ADBA. I was sorry Okye had already written the prefix HDK on her UKC puppy paper, because I'd made it so I could fit everything. Oh well.
If there was no letter limit, people would be naming their dog some ridiculous things. I don't think NKC limits them, and taking show entries at an NKC show is always funny, because you get dogs named things like Lah De Dah's Princess Emerald Spicy Toes of Snikity Snack Kennels West. You're supposed to write this on an entry sheet for each class. There's about 1 inch of space, too. You start praising people for naming their dog Bob and Spot.

Thanks, I actually have them and a bunch of variations on the name before I decided on what really wanted so it is frustrating that it has to change . I took a lot of time and every word and letter means something ... oh well

I also think it stinks that either my initials or a registered kennel name HAS to be first in it, but oh well just me taking a tantrum LOL :|

LOL I know the reg name really should not be that big of a deal, but it is...

UKC actually screwed up Sock-M's name when I registered her and also Starlit's and I had them redo both sets of papers. I had luckily made a copy of the original before I sent in to them. So I didn't have to pay to have it fixed since it was their mistake and I followed the naming rules :)

You mean :
Lah De Dah's Princess Emerald Spicy Toes of Snikity Snack Kennels West Is taken LOL I was going to use that one LOL
