Today whist out for a walk...a dog owner was yelling for her dog in the park. At speed a Jack Russell called....Shackleton...comes flying out of some bushes.

Big name, small dog! IMO Brilliant grin

We wanted to call our dog Steve but DS vetoed it. He's now called Jake.

Baby names...sodding everywhere!!! Pet names MUCH more fun.

We have a 'Dog List' of baby names...they inc all the names which DH vetoed whist pregnant. No one raises eyebrows if you have a dog called Orlando or Rupert..I will have my Hamish smile

Scarlett - every name DH came up with when I was pregnant I vetoed. Too doggy, too horsey etc.

Fast forward to us walking in the park when DS2 was 4 days old. A huge filthy, chocolate labrador came bounding out of the lake with a red faced woman running behind him hollering "Hugo, Hugo.."

Yep, you guessed it. DS2 is called Hugo grin

i have a dog called Darren. it is just normal to me but i have just bumped into my new neighbour as i was walking the dog. he is also called Darren so when he asked the dogs name i think he thought i was taking the piss

We have a Trevor the Terrier around our way, also a husky called Skoda (two names you usually hear yelled CONSTANTLY all he time). One of our dogs was Brian while in rescue (he'd been brought in with a short haired dog who was Freddie from Freddie Mercury and he had long hair so was Brian May) - but none of the staff could spell so he was down as Brain on every bit of documentation going... never has a dog been so inappropriately named cos he's stoopid.

Think Sprocket is a great name for a dog (anyone remember Fraggle Rock?).

The bad dog in our training class was a chocolate lab called Chewbacca!

I met 2 gorgeous dogs last week called Fred and Wilma grin And we had a surgery cat called Colin, which really suited him! I also used to know a lively little dog called Boogie.

Chewbacca is superb..{adds to list}

Sir Didymus from the film Labyrinth!

We used to have a collie x called Eddie, he was fab! And I had a sausage dog called Chipolota, Chip for short.

Hubcap is brilliant, genius.

I've known a couple of Taxis. Also had a frined with a dos called Snogger, ideal for bellowing across Wimbledon Common in the summer.

Oh dear...naughty dog in our training class was called ....I'm waiting for my dogs name to come up blush

I'd like to say now; shes not naughty just very fast (or so the trainers say)

She is a Springer Spaniel
