The Royal Canadian Mounted police have 13 puppies being born this year and February is naming month! Canadian kids have the opportunity to give a name to these adorable fluff balls.  There are rules, however: the name must start with the letter L, be no more than two syllables, and have no greater than 9 letters. Applicants must live in Canada and be under the age of 14. Winners will get a laminated photo of their puppy, a stuffed dog named Justice, and an RCMP cap.
