    I’m so sorry to hear about your Nevaya, Llydia! What a nice way to honor her memory and I bet your town looks absolutely beautiful!❤️

    Thank you Garfunkel,still not over it,I do think my town name will stay like this for a while.
    And also,another team member named her town Stoffieville ,because we use to call our doggie by that name, Nevaya was her registered name.We love to chat about our pets in our co op.Sure feels like family even though from different countries.

    You have my deepest sympathy Llydia. We had 2 gorgeous Vizslas, Zolti and Kazmer who died within 6 months of each other aged 16 and 14, absolutely heartbreaking. We have 2 new dogs now but I'll never forget my gorgeous boys, wonderful breed.

    Our co-op is called Colwyn Bay, the Colwyn is for one of our members who very recently had her first grandchild who was named Colwyn. She seemed to like the gesture so it will certainly stay like that for some time.

    Oh Mishy,I am so sorry for you.We went to a lady who runs a rescue centre,and you know we found this poor abused vizsla puppy ,about 9 months old,so timid and scared of people,bite marks all over her.I had to take her home of course.So we named her Rose Beri after another member of our co op,we call her Rosie,its not easy going but we are getting there.I am so thankful for all the friends and support from co op and non co op members,it means such a lot to me,and Rosie.😄😄

    As we are gearing up for christmas , that will probably be our next theme...so if anyone can come up with a funny town name for me, id love to see them!
    Oh, and Boo is my cats name, he was wandering by when i was thinking of a town name!

    These are a little obscure and you are no Scrooge.

    Amazing when you can rescue a puppy (or an older dog) so worthwhile. I would love to but have always been a bit nervous, I have 12 grandchildren, some of them quite small and I just darent risk an “unknown background” although quite obviously it’s not the dog’s fault! Rosie is a very lucky girl, I bet she thinks so too. I despise people who mistreat animals, they should be thrown in a deep, dark hole and never let out again.

    Neat topic!
    Named mine for what I do - Constant Changes. A couple years ago my mom got a kindle for Christmas soooo I uploaded Township on hers (since I'm at her house on Sunday's) we named it Sunday Fun. VERY quickly she took over so we made a co op Constant Fun.

    Thanks Garfunkel! It looks exactly like actual me, though I’m not actually aged, lol, just rather prematurely grey. It means I don’t need to use a real pic, which suits me fine. Kudos to my coop boss for making it for me.

    My current town name had its origins on the Forum. It was born out of a response I made in the thread "anyone else's town just ridiculously cute?" It is on about page 34 of that thread.
