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

{{Appeals to NMHQ to add a Dog's Name Section blush just for fun..please!}}

Howl. Which obviously I think is brilliant.

I know a couple of springer spaniels called Ralph and Stanley grin, and a Jack Russell called Brian.

I LOVE human names for dogs

My childhood dog (best dog in the world, obv) was called Trouble. My dad named her when it became obvious she was going to be a bit of a pain.
My cat is PicklePig, all cats names should be suffixed with Pig I think, I've had MuppetPig, BluePig and GuinnessPig too. (Full name, GuinnessPig Miaow Miaow Miaow)
I would love a dog, a pug to be precise. Or a Chug. That dog will be called Elvis.

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.
