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

My next whippet will be called Twiggy (perfect for a thin dog).
My poodle was called Twink (after a home perm, lots of curls)
and I have another Molly the Collie too.

Biscuit would work very well in my experience. As would Treat.

We used to know two (portly) black labs called Norman and Marjorie, suited them very well.
Our ridgeback is called Ruby.
On my list for future dogs are Ouzo and Raki.

Schroedinger for a cat! excellent, my favourite so far.

Owllady Mon 11-Mar-13 18:16:59

On that walking with dogs documentary there was a dog called Nigel smile

Oh yeah, my current dog WAS called Tinkerbell. She is now called a sensible name, but she responded to a Ti sound especially (we worked out that those names got the best response, with a hard Ti) so DH did wonde about calling her Tipsy. I vetoed. She has a nice name now!

skratta Mon 11-Mar-13 18:12:24

I know a cat called Schroedinger! He's called Rodie for short!

I met someone with a chihuahua called Microbe, and another with a Border Collie Cross called Yankee Doodle, but he recalls to Yank or Doodle best, and they call him Doodlebug for fun sometimes.

Knew a Staffie x Chesapeake Bay Retriever called Fook. Now shout that with a slight accent across the park and it sounds odd. Very odd. They call him Little Fook for short. Should add, they are from Gabon, a name in their language, and when the found out why everyone laughed all the time, they started calling him Little Fook as the truth dawned!

A beautiful Afgan called Colin.

Our old PBGV was called Marston. When we got him the breeder said the main irritant of owning one ( in those days when there were not many about)
was that people would always ask what sort of cross breed they were, so when the inevitable question was asked we could reply "Marston's Pedigree" In fact I had a little key ring fob on hiscollar to drive home the point.
