After Sen. Elizabeth Warren announced she got a new puppy, we asked you to suggest some creative dog names for her. And wow, did you respond.

We also heard from Donald Trump Jr., who tried to troll us on Twitter, but your suggestions were far better.

Here are just some of our favorites: 

  • Thurgood. No one fights for justice/equality quite like Elizabeth Warren & no one fought for justice/equality quite like Thurgood Marshall.”
  • “Rebel”
  • “Tuffy because she needs someone tough by her side.”
  • “Raza, it means hope. We need hope and Elizabeth Warren is, for me, the mother of hope. 😉”
  • “‘Spero,’ which is Latin for ‘hope’ and also an awesome doggo name!”
  • “Consumer watch dog”
  • “Dodd Frank”
  • “Anthony Scarapoochie” 
  • “Dogged Pursuit”
  • “Endeavor”
  • “Hope” 

“Percy,” short for persistence, and “Justice” were two of the most frequent suggestions. 

Still no word from the senator on what she’s decided to name her pup, but let’s hope she takes some of your suggestions into consideration. 

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
