Dog Names

Now That's Funny
Let's face it, when someone who names their BIG dog something like "Fluffy" or "Princess" they are trying to be funny. And it works! I mean, who doesn't think naming a Chihuahua or other small dog "Killer" or "Bruno", isn't funny.

We all have an intuitive sense of whether a name matches the breed or not. When deciding what to name your pup, go ahead and have fun with it, throw ideas around, try them on for size, but try to ultimately settle on something that you can live with for the life of the dog. You don't want to embarrass the poor thing right? hehe

What To Name Our Lab
When we choose "Buddy" as the name for our golden Lab (that's him up at the top of the page there), we nearly settled on "Brutus" because one of our cat's names is Ceaser, and thought it would be funny. But, we came to our senses and went with a name that has turned out to suit him perfectly. He's loyal and kind, something Julius Caesar would have been envious of. Et tu Brute?

Lots of Dog Names
There are literally thousands of possible dog names to choose from. This can be pretty overwhelming. Here is a list of some of the more popular names to consider. Watch your puppy for awhile and find out what his or her personality is like. Then try out a few dog names to see what seems to fit. If you need to make a change after a day or two, that's okay. Your dog will thank you, and you'll be happier too!

Hi!
My name is "Buddy" and I'm a yellow lab. My favorite thing to do is fetch a ball. I also like to bark at cars and go swimming in the lake whenever I can. It's great to be a dog!
