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...

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

How Sam Sees It 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 and also Franklin, too 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

Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings 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.

kippy said...

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

Thor and Jack said...

hehe, how fun!

Maggie Mae and Max 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

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!

SissySees 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!!!

Leslie Marken said...

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

soulbrush said...
