Pam, if my moniker had to be attached to a dog, at least he was well loved.

Come to think of it, I have been called a dog myself a time or two... usually when I was playing Pinochle and I 'sandbagged' an ace or two.

Mike LOL. When we first adopted our dog (named Mike), from the rescue group, I planned to change his name because my sister's recent ex was also named you-know-what. But I got outvoted by my kids and husband,,, and even my sis was ok to keep it. Soooo, Mike the boston terrier was never renamed. He was a great little dude, happy, even tempered, and very handsome!!!

We operate a dog boarding business, so we see a LOT of dogs. One of my favourites is a pair of miniature dachshunds (weiner dogs) named Oscar and Maya.

From our clients, it appears that the most popular names seem to be Bella, Lucy, Maggie, Max and Sam.

A century ago, my grandfather named his dog 'Jackson'. It just happened, purely coincidentally you understand, to be the same as the surname of the vicar (=pastor?) living next door. Apparently, my grandfather used to love shouting to his dog things like "Jackson, you filthy cur, you come here right now!"

I knew a K-9 officer who named his German Shepherd K-9 "Fluffy." His reasoning was that it would be hard for the bad guy who got bitten to tell the jury that he got bit by "Fluffy."

I have a Jack and an Oliver, though I didn't name either, and Candy (male, so that's unusual) and Janine. Janine got a call from Costco last week, they asked for her by name, about her prescription. I guess they thought it was unusual for a dog, too. They probably figured Bobbie was the corgi and Janine the human! I didn't name any of them.

I too like Barkley. Another origional one is D-O-G.
I know someone that named their female PIA, short for "pain in the ass"
I do really like Barkley though.
Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.

was the mixed breed down the street. It was a year before the little boy owner told me it was spelled D-O-G. Had a good laugh over that.

My late chocolate lab was named General Beauregard Jackson by the previous owner. He came to be known as Jax and was a great, laid back big old goofus of a dog. He and my recently late Boykin Spaniel Charlie Brown Dog are greatly missed.

My grandpa always used to say never name a pet (or child) anything you didn't want to hollar out the back door at the top of your voice.

I do rather like Barkley, though, as he was always one of my favorites on Sesame Street.

One of my friends named his dog Stella so when she got out he could go out in the street and yell "Stella!" He has the perfect gravelly voice for it.

I've always liked Darby, Mangeno and Deuteronomy (Deut for short). My wife doesn't. Therefore, we have two Old English Sheepdogs named Cooper and Cassidy, and a Black Lab named Maddie.

Smile The Name Game

Our son had two cats recently deceased named Kafka and Casey.

I always thought naming a dog "Roof" or "Rough" would be fun.

Of course if you go in your front yard shouting either name and tell people you are merely calling your dog, they may take you away!

My wife suggested for two dogs, "Bow" and "Wow"!

Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right.

The 9-year-old black Pomeranian-cross my son brought home as a puppy, and conveniently left here when he moved to California, is named Farley. My son wanted to call him Fathead because he was the biggest pup in the litter (Mother-white Pomeranian, Father-unknown). I said that I wouldn't be standing outside our door yelling "FATHEAD". Farley was the first name starting with F I could think of. Like Farley Mowat, the Canadian poet.

Our current resident cat is named Walnut. He's about 2 now. He was found in the local Walmart parking lot when he was about 6 weeks old. He and Farley are about the same size now. Both love wet dogfood.
