What Do You Think?

I need your opinion.

If a group of otters is called a romp.

A group of frogs is called an army.

A group of meadowlarks is an exaltation.

A group of blue jays is a scold.

A group of baboons is a congress. (Think about that one.)

A group of giraffes is a tower.

A group of leopards is a leap.

A group of magpies is a tiding.

A group of squirrels is a scurry.

A group of butterflies is a rabble.

A group of hippos is a crash.

A group of weasels is a sneak.

A group of hedgehogs is a prickle.

A group of hummingbirds is a charm.

A group of peacocks is an ostentation.

A group of lizards is a lounge.

A group of possum is a passel.

A group of bees is a flight.

A group of woodpeckers is a descent.

A group of crows is a murder.

A group of jellyfish is a smack.

A group of kangaroos is a mob.

A group of ducks is a paddle.

Then what is a group of Portuguese Water Dogs?

I vote for a splash.
Do you have any other ideas?

See a long list of these collective nouns here.

I had a smile on my face looking at the photos,

Mad about Craft said...

scotsmad said...

Minna Krebs said...

Sam said...

That is a tough question! I've always said a "Glad" of Goldens, but don't know what to call yours!


Sallie said...

I like George's idea. A puddle! LOL!

I hope you are coming to our Hawaii party. Hope to see you there!

Lola said...

That was so interesting. There were a few in there we didn't know. Like lizards and lounge. Now "lounge lizard" makes more sense but we had no idea. There are so many good ideas here. I like all of them - splash, curl, puddle wave, waggle, et al - all would work.

wags, Lola

The Rocky Creek Scotties said...

Congress - BOL!!!

I think I have to agree with the OP Pack on this one - Wave.

Marjie said...

Why, it's a Puddle of Porties, of course.

georgie said...

Why a posse of Porties, of course!
Actually my first thought was a group of PWDs would be called a challenge.

Thor said...

hehe, how fun!

Maggie Mae said...

I likes Curl or Wave!

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

gMarie said...

I like Puddle - just because most of the others start with the same letter - there's a word for that, but it escapes my tired brain.

I have a cry of hounds - exception to the rule! g

Anny said...

a group of portuguese water dogs is a lotta licks and woofs :D

LizzieJane said...

Love this post! The baboons made me laugh. I like a puddle of PWD's as well. It fits quite nicely!

Tee said...

Love the post! I didn't know they had such great descriptions for such groups.

I'm in favour of waggle of PWDs.


Dianne said...

How about a whole lotta love! Great post!

Channon said...

I'm loving puddle, but splash is a better fit for your active group!

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

We vote for your group to be called "Trouble"!! Just kidding! HEHEHEHE!!!

Soxnitter said...

Really enjoyed this post. I like "splash" or "puddle."

soulbrush said...
